About Katie

I spent over five years teaching in the Military, so I am no stranger to high stress environments, adult learners, and having a high level of patience for individuals that have a harder time with certain topics. I understand that each student learns in a different manner, so I am eager to understand which methods will work the best for everyone. Being a visual learner, I understand things more when I can see, touch, draw, or perform what I am learning; yet I understand that my teaching must include all methods of teaching in order to find the right one.

I believe that when an individual gets to the point where they can explain/teach a topic to another person, it not only shows the teacher/tutor what level of understanding they're at, but also allows the student to reinforce their understanding of the subject. Students should feel free to ask questions, and provide feedback in order to improve my ability to help them succeed.

I have written over 120 papers for college coursework using APA formatting and have proof-read just as many for other students. I am a recent graduate of the Master of Education in Psychological Counseling program at Teachers College of Columbia University, have prepared for and taken the GRE, been invited for multiple graduate level interviews, and am starting my Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology program at the University of Denver Fall 2015.

If you would like additional information, or simply have questions on my experience or methods, please do not hesitate to ask.

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.

College Counseling

I have two Master's degrees from Columbia University in Psychological Counseling. I have experience moving through the college application and interviewing process. I have been invited to interview for one Master's level program, and have interviewed for five doctoral level programs - successfully being admitted into three of them. With my combined knowledge related to career counseling and experience with academic interviews, I believe that I can be a great help to those navigating the undergraduate and graduate program application and interviewing process.

Writing

I have two Master's degrees in Psychological Counseling from Columbia University. I will be starting my PsyD in Clinical Psychology at University of Denver Fall 2015. I am very familiar with APA formatting, and have written approximately 200 papers in the last four years. I can provide guidance on formatting, development, research, proof-reading, etc. I can also help students gain a better understanding of their own writing style to assist in content building of assignments.
