About Kate

I have extensively studied literature, composition, creative and dramatic writing. I recently graduated with my MFA in Writing for the Screen + Stage from Northwestern University with a 4.0 GPA. I attended Eugene Lang College at The New School and was a Literary Studies: Writing major. I graduated with honors. I spent two years teaching high school English and creative writing at an all girls ice hockey academy in Stowe, VT, have apprenticed with an Oscar-nominated screenwriter, and taught intro. to screenwriting at Northwestern University.

I have several years of experience both mentoring and tutoring youth in reading and writing. I've also taught and studied the dramatic arts and poetry. I have been a residential camp counselor and director during the summers from 2004 to 2014, and I spend most of my time working with and teaching youth.

In my opinion, the best way to grow as a student is to be taught by someone who loves the material they are teaching. I'm enthusiastic and driven to share my love of stories, creativity, and the imagination. I like to tackle spelling, grammar, and punctuation with creative and fun approaches.
