About Katherine


Bio

My name is Katie. I am a graduate of Macalester College with a degree in English and a focus in Creative Writing. I tutor because in school, I realized that everyone learns differently and teaching can't be one-size-fits-all; my most effective teachers have always been ones who paid attention to their students' needs and adjusted lessons accordingly. As a tutor, I've also seen firsthand how individualized attention can make all the difference in student learning. This is the approach I take...

My name is Katie. I am a graduate of Macalester College with a degree in English and a focus in Creative Writing. I tutor because in school, I realized that everyone learns differently and teaching can't be one-size-fits-all; my most effective teachers have always been ones who paid attention to their students' needs and adjusted lessons accordingly. As a tutor, I've also seen firsthand how individualized attention can make all the difference in student learning. This is the approach I take when tutoring-- I can't assume one strategy or lesson plan will work with everyone, so when a student doesn't understand a concept, I do my best to reframe it in the way they learn best. Communication is key!

I have two years of professional tutoring experience, working as a college writing tutor at Macalester and then as a full-time early literacy tutor with kindergarten through third-graders. I have also volunteered with kindergarten through 12th grade students, tutoring in reading and academic writing as well as college essay writing. In my experience, a tutor's job is to help the student do their own learning rather than by explicitly teaching. I do not "correct" essays, but rather ask questions that guide the student to expand and clarify their own ideas.

I majored in English and have extensive experience writing analytical essays as well as creative pieces. I have tutored college students in writing papers and projects across a range of subjects, including sociology, English, biology, history, as well as application essays and cover letters. I am also experienced with standardized test prep and can offer grammar, vocabulary, and strategy help on the reading and writing portions of the SAT.

I am very open to feedback and to student and parent suggestions-- my goal is to be as helpful as possible! Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.
