About Kate

The joy I receive from teaching comes from my personal love for learning. I possess a Master's Degree in English Education, with coursework in ESL, composition and literacy. My teaching philosophy includes a belief that everyone can learn and grow their intelligence. Along with my belief, comes the knowledge that hard work and perseverance are necessary attributes for success. Incorporating a Growth Mindset in everything I do, I strive to help students, young and old, reach their learning goals.

I specialize in tutoring in English ESL, writing, speaking, and reading. I have taught all ages, and currently teach English at the college level. I teach 4-year college English, and developmental reading and writing. Over the years, I have helped many native and non-native English speakers improve their English writing, reading and speaking skills. My clients include all ages and I welcome new challenges in teaching skills to others.

I am flexible with tutoring times and location. Besides tutoring in-person, I can also tutor online using WyzAnts' online tutoring platform; this is an excellent way to receive tutoring from the comfort of your own home.

I look forward to helping you realize your learning goals!
