About Kathleen

I am a certified teacher in both Elementary Education and Secondary Education (Social Studies). I graduated from Ramapo College of New Jersey with a Bachelor's degree in History as well as my certificate to teach High School History. During my student teaching I taught American and European History. I later earned my certificate to teach elementary education and am currently an Assistant Teacher in a first grade class. My responsibilities include keeping students on task, practicing study skills, working in small groups in both readers workshop and writers workshop. I collaborate with teachers on differentiating instruction for special needs students and have experience with Orton Gillingham.

I really enjoy tutoring students and getting to know their strengths and weaknesses and watching them progress. My favorite subjects to work on are reading, writing, and grammar, though I can certainly work on other subjects as well. I also have a great interest in European history and art history. I look forward to working with you!

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 qualified to tutor this subject because I hold my teaching certificate in Elementary Education. I also have worked as a paraprofessional in an elementary school for the past three years. I am familiar with the reading and writing workshops used in the local public schools and would be able to assist with that. I can also speak to the Math in Focus program that is currently used.

Handwriting

I am currently a teachers aide in an elementary school. I have experience teaching handwriting from a D'Nealian workbook. I also have taught students handwriting on a whiteboard and found it very helpful.

Study Skills

I have been a classroom aide in an elementary school for the past three years and I also hold my teaching certification in elementary education. Therefore every day I help young students stay organized and help them study. I help many of my students make flash cards or make up games they can do themselves in order to study at home.
