About Katie

I am currently a doctoral candidate at Tufts University. I received a BFA in Theatre Performance and English from Niagara University and a MA in Literature from Northwestern University. At Tufts, and as adjunct faculty at other area colleges and universities, I've been a tutor for a large range of student learners, as well as a teacher of public speaking, writing-intensive history courses, and acting.

I'm interested in working with writers at all levels on academic papers, personal statements and cover letters, thesis and dissertation projects, and articles for submission to academic journals, as well as public speaking projects. I'm especially interested in helping students find their own voice and style through writing.

During my years of experience as a tutor and instructor at Tufts and several area colleges, I've helped students write successful grant proposals, cover letters, and other application materials. Several students I've worked with have gone on to win both Fulbright and Truman Scholarships. I assist students with dissertation and thesis writing, including planning, brainstorming, early drafting, and polishing the finished product. I also have worked as a public speaking consultant for several years, helping individual students and small groups with preparation for presentations, thesis/dissertation defenses, and interviews.

I enjoy working with high school, college-aged, and adult learners, as well as non-native speakers of English. Please contact me for more information and to tell me about your next project!

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.

Public Speaking

I have been a public speaking consultant at Tufts University since 2013. At Tufts I've worked with individual students and small groups on public speaking technique. I've prepared students for job interviews, Fulbright and Truman scholarship interviews, and thesis/dissertation defenses. I've also taught public speaking as an adjunct faculty member at Dean College, and been a teaching assistant for a Voice and Speech course at Tufts.

Theatre

I'm completing my doctoral program in Drama in May 2017. As an undergraduate, I majored in theatre performance, and in my Master's program focused on dramatic literature. I have extensive knowledge of theatre history from the Greeks to contemporary times, write for and about the theatre, and specialize in both history and theatre theory. This fall I'm teaching a course on Mental Illness on Stage and Screen in the Tufts Experimental College, as well as Performance Studies as Dean College. I'm completing a dissertation on the intersections between medical literature and the Victorian Stage. I'm also an actor and director in the Boston area.
