About Katena

I am a 17-year veteran teacher who enjoys tutoring students in small groups and one on one. I am PreK-6 certified in Elementary Education. I hold a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading. I have tutored privately in my home and for companies.

I have always loved reading. I enjoy teaching phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension and writing. I believe that laying the strong foundation in reading in these areas will establish students who will enjoy reading, students who will become lifelong learners, and confident readers.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified per K-6 teacher in Virginia. I have taught elementary school for 17 years. I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, and 4 and tutored students K-6.

Handwriting

I am a 17 year elementary teacher. As a teacher, I have taught writing as part of the curriculum. I can teach writing in isolation by itself. I can also incorporate writing into each subject.

Phonics

As a 17 year veteran elementary teacher, phonics has been the basis of my teaching. I teach students letter recognition and letter sounds while we associate the name with its picture. Knowing letter sounds allows the students the opportunity to begin to put the letters together to build words and later create sentences.

Reading

I have 16 years of elementary reading experience. My reading lessons focus on phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. I have obtained a Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction with an Emphasis in Reading. Since obtaining my master's degree, I have taught struggling readers for most of my years of teachers.
