About Katherine

Working with children is a joy I have experienced my whole life. Not only have I enjoyed seven years of teaching in an elementary classroom, but I have also been a para-educator in a special education room, a nanny, a substitute teacher, worked in daycares, and now a stay at home mom of three adorable children. I have a bachelors degree in elementary education. I have experience teaching several grade levels at a private school. I taught kindergarten and a split 4th/5th grade class both for 3 1/2 years. I have taught everything from letter recognition to writing a biographical essay as well as counting to long hand division. Recently, I have worked one on one with students with special needs. Now being at home, I help my older children with homework and extra workbook pages to enrich their education.

I love working one on one with children. While tutoring children, I can work individually with students to ensure they are working to the best of their potential. I will do this by looking at their past work, talking with the child and their family, and adjusting the lessons to meet the child's needs as we go.
If you are looking for someone who has an abundance of experience and love of children and teaching, please contact me. I am flexible with times and places to meet. Thank you for considering me!
