About Catrina

I am a graduate from K-State University with a degree in Elementary Education. Currently, I'm working as a second grade teacher and I am loving it!

I have experience working with many struggling students, and I believe that I can help every child become an even better student after working with me. I am creative and energetic; I make learning exciting. I believe that communication with parents is also an integral part of student learning, and I make sure that I keep parents involved in the process.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified Elementary teacher and am very excited to help young students thrive in their learning. During my student teaching experiences through K-State, I created and implemented lesson plans covering a variety of subjects. I constructed and taught a multi-week unit which covered components of good citizenship and leadership. Through these various experiences, I grew as a teacher and gained lots of experience working with different types of students.
Even though I am a certified teacher with classroom experience, I thrive on working with students on a very personal basis. I had the privilege of working with several reading groups and participating in several tutoring opportunities during my college years. I will take all my knowledge of different instructional strategies, learning styles, and curriculum implementation and work to personalize instruction for each student.

Phonics

I am a certified teacher for K-6 students. I have experience teaching grade K-2, with much emphasis on language arts instruction. I have experience working with struggling students and helping them to gain foundational skills for reading in the future.

Piano

My journey with piano began at the age of 5 years old. I took piano lessons from ages 5-18, with lessons focused on classical piano techniques. During that time I was blessed to work with two very accomplished teachers who continually pushed me to strive for excellence. When I was 15 years old, I began to take on the role of church pianist as well as continuing with my classical piano lessons. My church music experience continued for 3 years until I graduated from high school. During those years, I worked on honing my contemporary music skills, sight reading skills, and accompanist techniques.

I have 3 years of piano teaching experience. I love helping young students learn to appreciate music as much as I do. Each lesson that I teach is individualized for every child, and I want to make sure that every student succeeds and their love for music continues.

Reading

I am a certified elementary teacher with 5 years of classroom teaching experience. I am used to teaching small group reading and helping students overcome challenges.

Writing

I'm a certified elementary teacher with 5 years of classroom experience. Currently, I'm working as a reading intervention teacher teaching struggling readers important skills to help them succeed.
