About Katherine

I would be honored to be your tutor, as it is my number one goal to help your child succeed. I am certified to teach all subjects from Kindergarten through sixth grade, and have had experience in all elementary grade levels throughout my 11 years of teaching. As I do in my classroom on a daily basis, I will utilize a variety of strategies to help your child learn and remember information.

I will do my best to guide your child to recognize his or her potential and gain confidence as a student. I love seeing that "spark" when students understand a new concept! It is my hope to help ignite that same spark within your child that will grow into a lifelong love for learning.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Basketball

I played on organized teams from 5th-10th grade, along with many summer camps, leagues, and tournaments. I was a coach at a local intermediate school recently, coaching 5th and 6th grade girls for a year, and 7th and 8th grade girls for two years. Basketball is a passion of mine and I would love to work one-on-one to help with dribbling, shooting, passing, or defense skills.

Elementary Math

I am currently a 4th grade teacher who teaches a 90 minute Math block every day. I teach the basic math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) but also the PROCESS of getting to the answer. I focus on teaching how to attack word problems, as well as place value, fractions, decimals, money, measurement, and many more skills.

Reading

I am currently a 4th grade teacher who teaches a 90 minute Reading block every day. In my guided reading group, I focus on word recognition, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, retelling, reading responses, and much more. I want to help instill a love of reading with my students; the more you READ, the better READER you become!

Tennis

I played Varsity tennis for 3 years in high school and was a member of the Women's tennis team at Manchester University. I was the Head Coach for the JV and Varsity girls' tennis team at a local high school in 2010.

Made My Daughter Feel Very Comfortable!

My daughter had her first tutoring session with Katie last night and she gave me great feedback! She felt very comfortable with her and seemed to get a lot of work accomplished during their hour together. She didn't like the idea of having a tutor at all so for her to actually enjoy the session really says a lot about how Katie interacted with her. I know my daughter was confused on some math prob
