About Kathy

I went to school at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and have a degree in Education with a minor in Mathematics. I then went on to St. Kate's for my Masters. I have taught both eighth and fifth grade for a total of six years.

I have been tutoring since college and love it! I currently tutor three mornings a week before school, in which I help the students prepare for tests and work on study skills. I also work on math with both students.

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.

ADHD

Every year I have students in my classroom with ADD/ADHD. I have done some things (varying with each student) to help them to focus better. For example, I may put them right in front of me, away from distractions. Some students have done well with fidgets while in class. I have used highlighting strips to help them focus when reading aloud in class.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a fifth grade teacher and have been for 6 years. I teach Social, Science, Language Arts, Math (grades 5 and 8), and Spanish.

Study Skills

I tutor students who attend the school where I work in the mornings. We work a lot on study skills during these sessions three times per week. We create flash cards, make notes into visual aids, etc. I find what works best with the student and go from there.
