About Katherine

I am a literacy tutor, currently employed in the Flint School District. I absolutely enjoy working with students and helping them be successful.
As every person is different, each individuals learning style is different. This is a major principle used in tutoring my students.

Every student will be thoroughly assessed to gain knowledge of their current skill level as well as their individual learning style. An initial conference will be held with both parents and student to discuss deficiencies, concerns and expectations. Sessions are usually one hour in length. Weekly skills testing will be done to monitor progress.

I have a great love for the English language and genuine desire to show others how rewarding it is to have great reading skills. Patience and encouragement is vital to the learning process, something I strive for in my tutoring. I apply a 4:1 praise ratio when tutoring. This means for every correction the student gets four positive praise statements!

I am a four time winner of elementary level spelling bees, so I have had a love of words since the beginning! It's important that children know what the word they are spelling means, it gives them a point of reference. Application of phonics and modeling are essentials for spelling success.

I am excited to meet my new students and begin this path of learning success together!
