About Katherine

I am an experienced Literature and English teacher who is well versed in preparing students for standardized tests such as the EXPLORE, PLAN, and the ACT. In my career, I have also had the opportunity to work with many struggling readers and writers, and my Master's program in Reading & Literacy is further helping me determine new ways to help young and struggling students in the areas of vocabulary, word recognition, phonics, phonemic awareness, blending, listening, speaking, and writing.

I have worked one-on-one with many students since 2005. In my relationships, I find an area of common interest, and I also use a sense of humor to connect the material we are reading/studying to something relevant in the student's life. I can be strict yet warm, serious yet compassionate, and my goal is to help students achieve their dreams and potential.
