About Katherine

I have over five years of experience as a tutor who effectively adapts instructional modalities to the student's learning needs with extensive experience with children and teens. I have worked with a variety of students including those with special needs such as ADD, ADHD. I have a proven track record of success in helping students progress academically by helping them improve their study and general organizational skills which, in turn, typically bolsters their self-confidence.

I transferred from the State University of New York at Stony Brook several years ago to relocate to HawaiiI and study at the University of Hawaii focusing on interdisciplinary studies over a broad curriculum of course work in biology and chemistry. My tutoring style has evolved over this time to become highly interactive i.e. often like a coaching experience for the student. I also focus on conceptual learning as well as problem solving and test taking strategies. I maintain close contact with parents and consider them key partners in the tutoring process.

I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to become a part of a student's learning experience. I always learn something from my students, and I strive that I can do the same for them.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have spent over the last 5 years tutoring algebra, and have a deep love for the subject

Elementary Math

Over ten years' experience tutoring different grade levels. (mostly math) over those years I have learned the needs of the younger children and have adapted different learning modalities to best fit the child's needs. I also have worked extensively with kid with ADD ADHD and dyslexia. I have learned that the younger students need a tutor who can empathize and be patient I believe myself to have acquired these skills I so highly value.

Prealgebra

I have over 10 years experience with prealgebra.
