Bio

I am a Doctor of English and a Literature, Rhetoric, and Composition instructor at the University level with six years experience. I am also TEFL/TESOL certified as of December 2020. Prior to teaching at the university level, I worked with elementary schoolers for three years, primarily teaching gifted kindergartners. From 2015 through the present, I have privately tutored students from middle school to college in a variety of reading and writing-intensive subjects. I get great satisfaction...

I am a Doctor of English and a Literature, Rhetoric, and Composition instructor at the University level with six years experience. I am also TEFL/TESOL certified as of December 2020. Prior to teaching at the university level, I worked with elementary schoolers for three years, primarily teaching gifted kindergartners. From 2015 through the present, I have privately tutored students from middle school to college in a variety of reading and writing-intensive subjects. I get great satisfaction from helping my clients create individualized learning goals and watching them grow and succeed.

I have a Doctorate in English (PhD) from Saint Louis University. I also have a Masters from the University of Iowa and I have a BA in English and History from William Jewel College and the University of Oxford (UK). In the Spring of 2020 I was given St. Louis University's Fournier Award for Outstanding Teaching and I also completed a Certificate in University Teaching Skills through the Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning.

My subjects include: English, Writing, Reading, Literature, Proofreading, Grammar, US History, European History, World History, Time Management, Public Speaking, and College Application Help

I am prepared to help families who are looking for a consistent tutor to supplement their child(rens)' virtual learning this semester or school year. This is an opportunity to access private tutoring from a university instructor who is ready to help you or your child meet individualized learning goals!

Kathryn is knowledgeable, patient, and professional and

My 17 year old has something to say about everything and after his first session when asked how it went, the reply was GREAT. Hopefully we will be able to continue with Kathryn until he feels confident in his skills.

Barbara, 5 lessons with Kathryn

good tutor and effective

Kathryn did a good job with my daughter helping her understand her assignments, improve her performance and markedly raise her grade.

Vali, 6 lessons with Kathryn

Encouraging and supportive!

When I was freaking out about a paper and not sure where to go with it or how to focus it, she was super helpful offering candid feedback in a supportive way. I am keeping her in my very short list of go-to tutors!
