About Katherine


Bio

I have been teaching and tutoring for more than five decades all around the nation and the world. I believe that it is essential for tutors and tutees to know each other and to discover things together. I am flexible and understanding, I love teaching and I love to make each student into a learner who will become as curious and enthusiastic about asking questions and discovering answers as I am. Knowing how to ask questions and to think critically will serve everyone for life.

I have been teaching and tutoring for more than five decades all around the nation and the world. I believe that it is essential for tutors and tutees to know each other and to discover things together. I am flexible and understanding, I love teaching and I love to make each student into a learner who will become as curious and enthusiastic about asking questions and discovering answers as I am. Knowing how to ask questions and to think critically will serve everyone for life.

I have tutored in private homes and in classrooms, in writing and language labs and in library study areas, usually one or two students at a time, and sometimes as many as 8 or 10. I always seek to find just where students are in their path to knowledge, what might be their stumbling blocks, and what they really want to learn. Getting high scores or good grades might seem important, but learning how to learn will help forever, and that is what I can help to make happen. I have an EdD from Nova Southeastern University, a Masters from Cal State Fullerton, and a Linguistics degree from Mount Holyoke, Cal State Fullerton.

I love learning and teaching. I love language. I have undergraduate and graduate degrees in theoretical and applied linguistics, I have taught English, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, study skills, critical thinking, and rhetoric, as well as English as a Foreign Language and Academic English for non-English speakers at the community college and the university. I have designed curriculum and taught in person, at a distance, and online. My experience is broad-ranging and varied.

I grew up learning and speaking French and English; my parents met each other as actors on radio, and they made certain that my sister, brother, and I would learn accurate and correct language, including proper pronunciation and grammar, as well as le mot juste, the just-right word for any occasion. I have an undergraduate degree in French and English and a graduate degree in French linguistics. I translate, edit, and interpret French-English

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching English, ESL, French, journalism, linguistics, and anthropology for more than five decades, at first in framworker fields, then in classrooms, then in a hybrid manner, and now almost exclusively online. My college degrees are in theoretical and applied linguistics, French linguistics, and language acquistion/language loss. My publications concern mostly the ways in which animals communicate and people learn to speak, write, and understand the language(s) that make us unique among the animals of our world. I have taught ESL to children and adults, privately and in colleges and universities, as well as in schools of business and at the University of California Extension and the University of Connecticut International Club. I can help you!

I have been a professional translator and proofreader for the Olympics, for FIFA, and for Disney, among others. My publications concern language learning and acquisition.
