About Katherine

I am currently a junior here at Indiana University double majoring in Elementary and Special Education and I am looking to help YOUR STUDENT excel in elementary math and reading. I can help them build basic skills, and study habits that will allow them to reach new heights in school as they progress.

I have always had a passion for children, and am excited to follow this passion the rest of my life. I have been volunteer tutoring throughout high school, and have worked as a volunteer tutor here in Bloomington through IU School of Education field experience and the Boys and Girls Club of Bloomington. In my hometown, I work at a Child Development Center during the Summer months. For the past two summers we brought a school-age camp program into the center where I was able to be the coordinator and counselor for children aged 6-12 years old. It was our primary focus to incorporate educational activities, and learning opportunities to these children in the months that they do not attend school!

-Reading tutor 2 years experience
-Wide range of vocabulary in English and Spanish

-Experience teaching young students introductory reading lessons

-Elementary education coursework at Indiana University
-Strong work ethic from an extremely young age


I look forward from hearing from you, and committing to a flexible yet diligent tutoring schedule to help your student see results in school FAST!

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.

Phonics

I have worked at a preschool for 2 years. As a Kindergarten teacher it is extremely important to have an understanding of phonics and know how to share this understanding with children both verbally and through literature. As an Elementary Education student I have learned about teaching reading in my Reading methods courses.

Reading

I believe reading is a fundamental skill in order for elementary aged children to fully succeed in school. I can help your child do this because of these qualifications:
-I work at a preschool and work to build skills in phonics and vocabulary on a daily basis
-I have taken 80 credits of coursework towards a degree in elementary education
-I have a broad knowledge of children's literature
-I tutored elementary level reading for 2 years as a volunteer
