About Kathryn

I have always enjoyed working with students and seeing them learn. There is something so rewarding when you are working with a student and they learn something new or have accomplished a task that was difficult for them. That joy they have seems contagious and makes me want to work harder!

As of mid-December I will have completed my course work for my masters in Elementary Education/Early Childhood and am excited for the next chapter to begin.

Over the last few years I have worked in schools both in Michigan and New England. I have found that the best approach to helping a student be successful in a classroom or subject is to connect with them, build their trust and tackle the problem from their perspective. I will never just tell the student the answer to hurry the process along. Instead I allow for 'think-time'. I have also found that discussing the lessons with the students, making them part of their learning, is important to their success.

Finally, I don't believe any child cannot do something. I believe they just need the right approach and help to master anything they wish to do.

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 recently completed graduate studies for my masters in elementary education. I have spent the last four years in elementary schools either assisting students with their learning as a paraeducator or as a student intern.

Phonics

During my internships for graduate school I became proficient in teaching phonics to 1st graders as well as 3rd graders. We used various curriculum programs as well as approaches to help the students learn the subject.

Study Skills

For two years prior to starting graduate school I was a paraeducator in an elementary school. One of my responsibilities was to help the students with their lessons from their mainstream classroom. We would work on the lessons, check for understanding as well as help organize the student so they can learn in a successful manner.
