About Katrina

Good day! I am highly and uniquely qualified to tutor your son, daughter, or you! Not only do I have years of experience as a journalist, newspaper columnist, and Managing Editor of a chain of newspapers in Michigan, but also as a grant, freelance, and technical writer and editor. I have professional proofreading skills; even with a company that specializes in publishing secondary and college-level educational materials.

As a teacher, I taught for a number of years in inner-city Grand Rapids, MI for the federally-funded Upward Bound program, which addresses the needs of disadvantaged teens who have college aspirations. Among the courses I taught were ACT Prep, Study Skills, and a host of other English and Social Studies Courses, including Government and Consumer Economics. Since moving here to New Hampshire, I have achieved not only my teacher Certification in English and Social Studies, but also "Highly Qualified" teacher status.

Since January 2011, I have been consistently employed scoring tests for a National Educational Assessment corporation in Dover NH, and am currently working on a national project involving Common Core testing standards.

I'd be delighted to help any student who struggles with challenging course work or college prep testing and who would benefit from one-on-one tutoring, as well as those who seek support in writing those all-important college application essays!

My students seemed to always enjoy my classes and found me to be not only consistently positive, but also enthusiastic, creative, and flexible. I even have letters of recommendation from former students!

I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with and inspire you or your son or daughter.

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.

Social Studies

I minored in Social Sciences in college, and am a certified teacher of such in both Michigan, as well as in the state of New Hampshire. As such, I am qualified in Government, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Philosophy, and Geography.

Study Skills

I received an "A" in Reading Strategies in college as I pursued (and achieved) my Teaching Certificate in Michigan. I also taught Study Strategies as an Adjunct Professor at University for Upward Bound high school students; teaching freshmen how to parse educational materials for maximum benefit.

Top Notch Tutor — I recently hired Kate for SAT prep tutoring and I couldn't be more pleased. I started late in preparation for the test, seeing I only had about 6 weeks or so, but that didn't seem to phase Kate. She immediately jumped on board and made the most out of the time we had. We analyzed my previous scores and discovered what my weaknesses and strengths were. From that point on, Kate developed practice te ...
