About Kathy

I have tutored or taught students from 5-50 years old for many years in and out of the public school system and am confident that I can help you learn, as well. I adapt my lessons to fit the individual learner.

I have a Master's Degree in Education, am literate in many subject areas, and hold teaching licenses in three states specializing in English Language Education for both native and second language learners. I have helped several second language learners pass the U.S. Citizenship test and am passionate about teaching ESL.

I love working with students of all ages. I especially enjoy working one on one or in small groups.I am certain that you will see the difference in your (or your loved one's) skill levels as lessons progress. Plus, you'll probably have some fun along the way.

I believe learning can be great fun and if you are never laughing while you are learning, you might not be doing it right. I am a very personable teacher and I have never seen a student who is uncomfortable around me. We work together to find the best methods to help you get the most out of the lessons and coursework.

I thoroughly enjoy seeing my students succeed. Are you going to be one of them?

Whether in Elementary, Middle, Jr. High, Sr. High School or beyond, call today for help with ANY language related skills including reading, writing, listening, speaking, vocabulary, phonics, comprehension and others.

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)

As an English as a Second Language teacher, I have worked with students in Kindergarten through sixth grade in small groups or one-on-one settings. I have helped students get motivated to succeed in all academic arenas. Many times when students are not motivated it is because they don't understand the content. I help them learn it through a variety of learning activities including hands on fun activities, worksheets, games and projects.

I have also taught children to read and spell using remedial reading methods such as RTI and Dibels and a variety of ESL materials. I am especially well versed in phonics education having had many years of teaching experience in this area.

Phonics

As part of my training to teach ESL, I took graduate classes in phonetics and phonology. I have taught ESL for 13 years and have relied on phonics at some point in most students' academic careers. I think a student's knowledge of phonics is very helpful in learning to speak, read and write in English.

Phonics help students become better spellers, readers and writers, whether learning English as a first or second language.

Study Skills

I was a peer tutor while enrolled in community college and at the university I attended. I helped students in multiple subjects and taught them how to organize their tasks and available time to maximize their efforts. I also taught English as a Second Language for 12 years and often worked one on one with students to help them learn the language as well as succeed in all subject areas by improving their study skills and habits.

Writing

I have a Bachelor's degree in English with a Creative Writing Emphasis. I have taught high school English and tutored many students of various ages (including college)in writing/grammar skills.
