About Kate

I have been tutoring students for the past 8 years of my life, and have been teaching reading in a middle school the past 3 years. I have always known I wanted to be a teacher, but my love and passion for reading has only recently developed. One of my middle school teachers did not allow me to be in the group of students reading Harry Potter, instead placed me in the "remedial group" reading The BFG. This experience ignited a fire within me to prove that I was capable of reading longer and harder books.

From my childhood experience, to teaching middle school students, I have grown to appreciate the complexity of reading, the advantage of using books as an outlet, and the knowledge gained from a powerful story. My goal as a teacher and tutor is to not only teach students strategies to be successful readers, but to develop a passion and love for reading that can continue throughout their entire lives.

I am certified to teach reading and writing, but am most passionate about reading. There is a strong link between reading and writing that I am qualified to instruct, but I prefer to use writing mostly as a way to support student growth in reading comprehension.

I would love to empower you to be a stronger reader, challenge you to push yourself, and support you on the journey towards being a successful reader.
