About Kate

My name is Kate and I am a graduate from the University of Northern Iowa. I am currently a science teacher for Wake County public schools in south Raleigh. I have been teaching in Raleigh for two and a half years and love it here in Wake. I am highly qualified to teach in both math and science here in North Carolina. Along with teaching, I have acted as a tutor for several years, both privately as well as through an agency that is no longer active.

I have experience tutoring middle school students in reading, math and science as well as high school SAT prep. I have worked/taught botany, ecology, zoology and microbiology in the middle grades. Previous to working in regular education, I have had over 10 years of working with students who have special needs; I specialize in ADHD, ADD, autism and the autism spectrum and am comfortable tutoring students of all needs.

I do live in Harnett county and am willing to travel out to Cary and North Raleigh as long as it is within a reasonable time after school. I prefer to meet at either bookstores (such as Barnes and Noble) or at libraries in the area, but if there is another location that works better, I am willing to discuss other options in the area.

I have very high standards for both myself as well as for my students. I ask that all participants (including myself) come prepared and ready to work every time that we meet to tutor. While I do have availability to items that will help with learning, I also expect that work will be done outside of our tutoring sessions. Without practicing what we are doing, it is very difficult to have continuity and success with out daily sessions. Practice makes perfect!

I look forward to speaking with you more and talking about how I can help you be at your best!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Science

I have worked with students for the last five years towards success in their ACT and SAT tests focusing on test taking skills, building confidence and honing in on content.

Autism

I have over 10 years of experience working with children and adults with various levels of Autism. I have worked as an Autism specialist in schools as a 1:1, as a lead teacher as well as behavioral support. I worked in the home with many students with autism on daily living skills, homework, behavioral and social skills. I am comfortable with students on all levels of the Autism spectrum as well all behavioral needs. I have a background in special education and am able to meet each individual student where they are and teach best to their learning levels as well as their learning styles.

Elementary Math

I am a highly qualified math and science teacher for Wake county and have worked with students of all ages to help find their best in several areas of study.

Zoology

I have been teaching a zoology class for my magnet middle school for over three years as lead teacher for the class. I have also written a semester long curriculum on zoology, starting with kingdoms and working down to species. I am comfortable with binomial nomenclature and how animals are organized. I am competent from microbiology to large mammals and everything in between.
