About Katherine


Bio

I was in the Top 5 of my graduating class with a steady 4.0 GPA throughout high school, where I majored in the Arts and took multiple AP classes, scoring passing grades in all of them. I have always had a love for learning as well as teaching others. I have over four years of experience tutoring elementary and high school students in math and science.

I was in the Top 5 of my graduating class with a steady 4.0 GPA throughout high school, where I majored in the Arts and took multiple AP classes, scoring passing grades in all of them. I have always had a love for learning as well as teaching others. I have over four years of experience tutoring elementary and high school students in math and science. I have over eight years of experience as a volunteer Bible teacher where I promote literacy in each student by means of reading, comprehension and self expression of information, answering students' questions and misunderstandings, and helping them to develop a love for the lessons.

I find joy in helping students develop an interest in what they are learning. I strive to help students overcome their dislike and lack of confidence in subjects by means of comparisons and examples that feature their interests. For example, with students who struggle with math, I create word problems and comparisons using subjects they like such as sports or music. In that way, they become more motivated to learn. I evaluate my students’ learning styles and adapt my teaching methods or strategies to best suit their individual needs.

I have assisted elementary children with homework such as multiplication, division and fractions. I assisted my fellow peers throughout my 4 years of high school, offering tutoring in Math for test preparation and homework help. My math experience includes middle school and high school levels such as algebra and geometry. This tutoring took place in a classroom, usually after school hours and the lessons were one-on-one.

I also have had experience tutoring children how to read in english. One of my past jobs included teaching english to a ten year who was raised in the Dominican Republic. I am currently teaching a seven year old how to read in both English and Spanish. I have over six years of experience editing student work and leading writing workshops for grades 6-12 at a high school in Miami. These workshops took place in a classroom, typically composed of a group of 6-30 students. I have also edited students’ writing one-on-one or in groups of 3. I have successfully helped students overcome the obstacle of low confidence and feelings of inadequacy. My desire is to cultivate a love for reading and writing in my students, as it is something that I love. I am an internationally published writer and a Scholastics Arts and Writing national award winner in poetry and creative nonfiction. Scholastics Art and Writing is the country's longest-running and most prestigious scholarship and recognition program for students in grades 7–12. I am currently studying for my certification as an ESL/ESOL teacher.

I have a flexible schedule. I dedicate myself to my student's lessons and I take time to prepare for them. Feel free to contact me with additional questions and schedule a lesson or consultation meeting. I look forward to meeting new students!
