About Kate

Hello! I am so excited that you are looking for a tutor! Every student can learn and succeed, and I love helping them accomplish those goals. I have been teaching for over 13 years in elementary education, with experience in grades from transitional Kindergarten through eighth grade. I have experience with many styles of learning, and with teaching kids with learning disabilities as well as gifted learners. I have also been a private tutor and intervention teacher for several years now, with over 1,700 hours logged in tutoring alone.

I love teaching and inspiring students to want to learn. There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone reach their goals and feel their own sense of pride and accomplishment with what they can do. Struggling learners often have to work extra hard and sometimes work through their frustration; when they finally "get it" they are so excited! I love being an active participant in that process. I would love the opportunity to meet you and your family and help your student succeed and build confidence in knowing that they can do it!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Elementary K-6th includes core curriculum standards of language arts, math, and english language development, it also includes integrated curriculum of science, social studies, music, art and physical education. All of these subjects I am well-versed in and have been actively teaching for 9 years in my elementary school. I have also taught intervention classes for struggling learners to help them meet proficiency standards.

Elementary Math

I am a credentialed teacher, 15 years experience, specialize in struggling learners, including Elementary Math.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching ELD (English Language Development) to students for several years. I am CLAD certified with my multiple-subject teaching credential. I also have a background in learning a second language.

Phonics

I have been teaching phonics for several years at the first grade level, which is beginning reading and decoding as well as developmental. I am very good at helping students learn to use phonics to help them read, and teaching their mouths and tongues proper placement so they can produce sounds properly.Phonics is the study of sounds and how they work together to make up the language we speak. A person's understanding of the sounds in a language and their ability to produce those sounds can help them decode unfamiliar words to help them be a better reader.

Reading

Reading skills are critical to every student's learning success. Every area of core and integrated curriculum requires students to be able to read grade level text and understand the content. There are many different components that work together for successful reading, such as fluency, decoding, vocabulary, understanding phrases, and much more. When any of these pieces are missing from a reader's "toolbox", their learning success becomes inhibited, breeding frustration and a lack of understanding. I am able to work with students to make sure their reading skills are well-rounded, that their "toolbox" is full and they can use all of their skills together to further their comprehension and overall success across the curriculum. They will become more confident, and develop a life-long love for reading!

Study Skills

Study skills are a critical component of learning to analyze and evaluate large amounts of information, and filtering what information is the most vital to retain by memory, what can be reserved or flagged as a resource, and what is considered supplemental interest. These skills use different strategies and techniques and I would love to help your student discover what methods work best for them and teach them how to use their skills to help them study.

Tennis

I absolutely love the game of tennis and have played since I was in grade school. I learned the game through taking lessons myself, then continued to play for JV and Varsity teams in school, being the first singles player to make it to the championships! I have played singles and doubles competitively, and have taught lessons as well. I would love to teach you how to play and make sure you experience the love for tennis that I have!
