Hello! I am a native of Minnesota where I attended Minnetonka High School, Minneapolis Community and Technical College, and the University of Minnesota, including the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. I have worked in various educational settings as a College Prep and ESL teacher, adviser, and program coordinator, but my passion is for tutoring. The relationship between tutor and learner is engaging, stimulating, and positive.

I have a bachelor's degree in English, graduating summa cum laude, and a master's degree in pubic policy: 7 years of full-time college, with a 3.92 G.P.A. (Transcripts available upon request.)

I have a passion for teaching English -- literature, writing, and reading comprehension. I have taught English to teenagers and adults from the U.S. and many other countries. My experience teaching English language learners (ESL) has helped me become a better, more sensitive English tutor for all my students, regardless of their first language. I tailor my tutoring style to each student's learning style, but patience and support are always part of our relationship.

I look forward to hearing your learning goals, so we can make a plan for the greatest possible success in your education and professional life! I am confident you will be happy with my dedication to your education goals.

ESL/ESOL

During college, I began my long career, both voluntary and paid, as an ESL/ELL tutor. I loved it right from the start. My first job after graduate school was teaching a classroom of teenagers from varies countries around the world. Later I taught adults English in the evening as part of a community education program. Now I am a full-time tutor and ESL is my favorite subject to teach. I find adults learning English are the most engaged and curious students -- great qualities that make the student-tutor relationship a success. I have met many wonderful ESL students through WyzAnt!
Proofreading

Proofreading

As an on-line teacher of College Prep at a 2-year college, a lot of what I did was proofread and suggest edits to students. I also proofread people's resumes in my position as an employment counselor for a nonprofit. Proofreading is one aspect of what a teacher does when reviewing and correcting student papers. I have a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Minnesota (summa cum laude and in the honors program), with classes in literacy, language, and reading. I have a master's degree from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

Great English tutor

Kathryn is the great English tutor. I take her lesson every week after I came to the U.S. from this spring. In her lesson, she try to figure out my weakness and to choose the useful material for me every time. She knows many things about English teaching and also beneficial information about Minnesota.I ask her about inconvenient things of dailylife,culture of the U.S.,a laws of Minnesota etc... She always readily answer my questions.She is very cheerful and kindness. That is why I can really enjoy her lesson.
