About Katie

I am an educator with a Master's degree in Education, capable of teaching a variety of subjects, and credentialed in both English and History/Social Studies. I am capable of tutoring in these subjects, as well as others.

I currently teach high school history (AP Government, AP Economics and World History). I have taught for 6 years, at both a middle school (2 years) and high school (4 years) level. This past spring, I was awarded ASB's "Tireless Teacher" award. I have extensive experience tutoring for the past ten years. I also have instructional experience in the athletic realm, as I have been a tennis instructor since high school. I am the current head varsity tennis coach at the school I work.

I love working with young people who are eager to learn, but I am also a good motivator, who can inspire those who may be lacking motivation. I am highly innovative, determined and enthusiastic and am able to find approaches to teaching that work for the individual. I have the tools necessary to not only assist in writing and/or refining essays but also to prepare for exams, teach good study skills for standardized tests, and develop enrichment activities/lessons for those who want to go above and beyond the material and understand the content better. Although my expertise is in the humanities (history, English, political science, religious studies, etc.) and writing (I have had a number of articles I have written published), I also have tutored several students in elementary and middle school throughout the years in math. All of the students and their families I have worked with throughout the years have been happy with the improvement they have seen in their academic performance. I love what I do and am very enthusiastic, and I also have high expectations for all my students. If you are interested in learning more about me or my background, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
