About Katie

I love helping others discover that learning a language is not impossible, in fact it can be a lot of fun! After I graduated from college with my degree in Spanish, I moved to Mexico and worked as a 3rd grade teacher at a bilingual school for 4 years. I received my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate in 2012. I am completely fluent in Spanish and am in my second year of studying French.

I am comfortable teaching students of all ages. I have successfully worked with everything from small children to teenagers to adults. My class style depends on the age of the student and his/her needs.

I am available everyday from 9am-9pm and I can travel to students up to 20 miles away.

I have 4 years of experience teaching English as a foreign language at an International Baccalaureate school in addition to a TEFL 120-hr certificate. I have taught to students of many languages, and I am particularly experienced with Spanish speakers.

I love making language learning fun instead of daunting. As a person who has studied two foreign languages and taken countless language classes, I know what makes for an engaging class rather than a bunch of memorization. I try to include play, dialogue, conversation, and culture in each class, along with grammar, vocabulary and conventions.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you find success in your studies!

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.

Phonics

I have been a 3rd grade EFL teacher at the American School of Puebla for the past four years. As part of the school's curriculum, I taught phonics using Pearson text books. I am familiar with different methods and techniques for teaching phonics concepts such as, but not limited to, long and short vowels, consonant blends, consonant digraphs, vowel pairs, and vowel digraphs.
