Bio

Hi Parents!

My name is Kate and I am a certified special education teacher. I will also have a master's degree in education. My years of tutoring experience have taught me that learning can be fun. I believe children learn best through use of manipulatives and hands-on games and activities as well as creating motivating experiences so children actually want to learn!

Hi Parents!

My name is Kate and I am a certified special education teacher. I will also have a master's degree in education. My years of tutoring experience have taught me that learning can be fun. I believe children learn best through use of manipulatives and hands-on games and activities as well as creating motivating experiences so children actually want to learn! My work in the field of special education has taught me how to break down skills and teach them piece by piece. I think this method works well with children with and without special needs.

Professionally, I have worked as a therapist in the field of applied behavior analysis (ABA) with children with autism. My clients ranged from ages 2-14. I have been doing ABA for nearly 10 years and I find it incredibly rewarding. The research behind ABA is composed of a simple three-term contingency; teacher tells the student to do something, student does it, student is reinforced. The key is establishing what is reinforcing to the child. I know that my experience in this empirically supported field will help your child become successful.

Please thoughtfully consider me as a tutor for your child. Thank you!
