About Katie

I have an AA degree in general arts and a B.A. in secondary education. I currently hold a NC teaching license (6-9) language arts. I am certified to teach middle school, but I have experience with all ages. I have been an unofficial tutor since the fourth grade or so and have been professionally tutoring students since I was in high school. I have always been the friend people came to for help with homework, especially in the areas of reading and writing.

In addition to my writing, proofreading, and test prep skills, I also have experience working with younger and older students in the area of reading comprehension. I have tutored children as young as 4 in the areas of reading fluency and reading comprehension, and I have taught students in middle and high school in the same areas. I love to read and hope to share that love with as many students as possible. Tutoring is an incredibly rewarding profession because you have the chance to make a difference in the life of another. The look on a student's face regardless of his or her age when he or she finally understands what you have been trying to teach is priceless; it's remarkable and it is that "aha" moment that makes all of the stress and preparation involved in teaching and tutoring worth it.

I have tutored students from kindergarten to college and am especially skilled in the areas of grammar and proofreading. I am also adept at proofreading pieces of writing which is especially important in college. I worked in the writing center throughout college and helped many friends on the side. Test prep is another of my stronger areas as I am simply skilled at studying. I love sharing my study skills with other students so that they can be successful.

I strive to reach every student I work with on his or her level and I would love the chance to work with you. I love being a tutor and I look forward to helping you reach your personal goals. The sky is the limit when it comes to education. If you put in the time and effort, anything is possible!

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.

SAT Reading

I have taken the SAT 2 times and I was able to increase my own score using the techniques and strategies I will share with your child. Reading and critical thinking skills are very important when taking the SAT and as a teacher, I am trained to help students hone these skills.

Writing

I have always been a strong writer and have received high marks throughout my elementary, middle, high school, and college careers in the area of writing. I am especially adept at proofreading and providing feedback; I worked in the writing center all 4 years of college and helped several other students on the side.
