About Katherine

I have been a teacher for the past six years. I was a Kindergarten teacher for five years and a First Grade teacher for one year. I have a Master's in Education specializing in Literacy. I have worked with students of all levels and backgrounds.

I use a variety of materials to solidify math concepts. I have experience using several different programs. I have used Everyday Math, Math Investigations 2, and Kathy Richardson: Developing Number Concepts.

In my tutoring sessions you will see students learn in an environment with clear expectations and positive reinforcement. When instruction is being delivered it is well planned and targeted to ensure that the student is learning. Students are exposed to many teaching styles, manipulatives, and technology. I am reflective and able to determine next steps quickly. My data reflects high-quality instruction, where students meet and exceed grade level expectations.

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.
