About Katherine

I have been teaching for over ten years and have a variety of experiences with different state curriculum. I have held teaching certificates for grades 7-12 in Maine and Rhode Island. I now am licensed to teach English for grades 5-8 and 8-12 in Massachusetts. I earned a Master’s in Education and Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maine, and majored in Elementary and Secondary Education with a minor in English.

My other experience includes project manager work for a small publishing company and various student leadership roles. I have also worked as a coach for sports teams and advisor for school clubs. My life has been greatly devoted to bettering the lives of students in a wide variety of settings.

My experience as both a public and private school teacher has given me vast amounts of information in working with a variety of students in a number of different settings. I am well versed in special education programs as well, and have worked closely with learning specialists in order to develop differentiated learning programs for all students to feel a balance of challenge and achievement.

I love to read and have a passion for writing.

I have a geeky fascination with science fiction and fantasy stories, so I will always be up for a great debate about any dystopian novel (think Hunger Games!) or allegorical fantasy story. I won't shy away from a Doctor Who or Harry Potter reference either!

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.

Piano

I took 11 years of piano lessons from 3 different professional instructors. Now, I teach piano to 8 different students of varying skill levels. Additionally, I have accompanied artists on piano for different events, and will soon be playing live piano at an event at a local historical museum.

Writing

I am qualified to tutor in all areas of the English content as designated by the WyzAnt website.
