About Katie

Hi there! My name is Katie and I am an experienced high school and college teacher who wants to help you achieve your full potential. I have a B.A. in English, a B.S. in Education, an M.A. in Communications, and I am a PhD candidate in Humanities. I am currently teaching humanities and film courses at Harry S Truman College.

My tutoring style is to work with your unique abilities to come up with "hacks" to make your learning easier. I am happy to help with reading, writing, public speaking, grammar, homework help, or basic study skills. Our tutoring sessions will be efficient yet fun as I help you to find joy in your school work.

I not only possess the undergraduate and graduate degrees that make me a qualified tutor, I also have a well rounded teaching background. I've taught poetry, writing, grammar, and test prep to high school students, as well as college courses in public speaking, writing, and media studies.

I really believe I can be the tutor to help you break through your barriers. If you want to know more about me or have any questions about how a tutoring session with me might break down, please feel free to contact me!

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.

English

I have a BA in English and a BS in English education from the University of Dayton

Public Speaking

Not only do I have an MA in communications and dozens of public speaking engagements on my resume, I also taught Basic Public speaking for three years as part of the Jefferson Community and Technical College system in Louisville, Kentucky. In that role I taught both college and high school students how to overcome anxiety, structure a speech, and persuade diverse audiences.
