About Katherine

My name is Katherine, and I taught Writing, Literature, and Film Studies for over 9 years for various colleges and community colleges. I taught both face-to-face and online.

I have experience teaching students who come from a wide range of educational backgrounds, age levels, and English proficiency. My undergraduate degree was in English, I have a Masters degree that covers both Theater and Literature, and I am a Doctoral Candidate in Education Studies.

Primarily, I am available to help with Literature and Writing as well as to help boost your critical thinking and analysis skills. I have a great knack for finding accessible ways of thinking about complex topics like thesis statements, incorporating research, logic, etc.

Need more creative help?
My current degree is also in educational technology and I taught future teachers how to integrate technology into their classrooms. This means that I taught how to design compelling PowerPoints/PowToon/Prezis, effective visuals, and web design using programs like Google Sites, Weebly, and Wix. So, if you have a slightly more unorthodox project, I have a lot of cool Web 2.0 tools in my back pocket.
