About Katherine


Bio

I am a Preschool Teacher who loves to teach Reading and Writing. Because I very much enjoy working with children, I love working individually with students. In fact, I worked for a faith-based Literacy company called Access For Success. Specifically, this is a faith-based company wherein the teachers work with Elementary School aged inner city children in order to raise their Reading Achievement Scores. I worked with those children who were in 4th Grade. My job title was Reading...

I am a Preschool Teacher who loves to teach Reading and Writing. Because I very much enjoy working with children, I love working individually with students. In fact, I worked for a faith-based Literacy company called Access For Success. Specifically, this is a faith-based company wherein the teachers work with Elementary School aged inner city children in order to raise their Reading Achievement Scores. I worked with those children who were in 4th Grade. My job title was Reading Specialist, meaning I planned and implemented enjoyable, hands-on learning experiences for each child. In doing my assessments, the children raised their Reading Scores considerably.

In addition, I am trained in teaching Reading by using the Guided Reading Method. To be specific, I helped childen with their fluency and comprehension by reading authentic, enjoyable Children's Books as opposed to using Reading Textbooks.

Moreover, because I teach Reading and Writing simultaneously, I, also, planned and implemented developmentally appropriate, hands-on learning experiences so children could consider themselves authors. I strongly believe that children who write extensively improve their Reading Achievement Scores.

Finally, my own personal Reading Tutoring method is to create a warm, nurturing learning environment and make Reading a fulfilling and enjoyable experience.

I feel that I am qualified for the position of handwriting tutor, because I have taught handwriting to Preschoolers when I taught preschool for the St. Louis Public School District. In addition, I am currently taking courses to earn my Masters In Literacy Degree with a Reading Specialist Certification. As part of these courses, I am studying how the developmental stages of the writing process. Embedded in this is a handwriting component. Finally, when I was in undergraduate school, as part of my Methods of Teaching Language Arts Coursework, I had to learn the Zaner Bloser Style of Handwriting. Lastly, as a substitute teacher, I did learn the DeLeanian Style of Handwriting.
