Learning Styles for Student Success

A little about my background: I earned a Bachelor Degree in Accounting and History, in 2009 and a TESOL teaching certification, in 2018. I earned a Master degree in Education M.Ed., in 2021. I teach for an international school online, tutor in the online community and in-person as well as teach at local schools in K-12 Special Education.

I consider myself a very patient teacher and tutor, which I believe is essential to the process. I usually offer the student a few options, based on their interest and learning style assessment, in which to learn the material. I then let them decide which option makes the most sense to them. I believe education and learning is a very personal process, which is why it should be tailored and differentiated to each individual as much as possible. Every individual can learn and progress!

My schedule is flexible and I am always glad to work around your schedule. Just as you put your child's development and growth first, I will be a partner in this with you. I look forward to helping your child reach their full potential in the future!

Great tutor and very attentive and patient

Ms.Katie is a great and knowledgeable tutor, the lesson plans that she does with my daughter are great. My daughter enjoys learning because of Ms.Katie teaching style is relatable and my daughter can understand and absorb the information being taught.

Patient and encouraging!

My son has been struggling with math all year. He was reluctant to work with a tutor based on other experiences. However, after each lesson with Katie, he has come back positive and hopeful. Katie looks for the skills that he already has and builds on those skills to help him remember what he already knows and move forward into new skills. This has been very encouraging both as a student and as a parent. My son responds well to encouragement and Katie has been spot on with this teaching technique. She takes things slow and he responds well to this as well. I have been very pleased and we have only had just a few lessons. My son and I look forward to many more great learning experiences with Katie!

She's great

Katie is so patient and works so well with my son. He actually wakes up on Tuesday mornings and tells us that she is coming that evening. He looks forward to his time with her.

Thank you so much for your kind words! It is such a joy to work with your son and family!

First lesson

My 7 year old has only had 1 session with her so far but said that he really enjoyed it. He doesn't usually enjoy anything that has to do with learning so that was exciting.

Everything we were looking for!

I had some reservations about getting a tutor for my 8 year old that may have turned out to not be a good fit. Katie L. eased all of our worries! She is so leveled tempered and patient, not to mention her knowledge and qualifications. She has already helped me to be a better coach and teacher. Thanks Katie! -Update Working with Katie was great for our son, Dylan! He is doing great in school and at home. Also, I have modeled a lot of how I work with him on his schoolwork after what I observed from Katie! Thanks again for everything!
