New Mexico Highlands University (English)
Hi! My name is Katherine and I am a qualified English tutor. I am also willing to tutor other subjects at the elementary and middle school level, in addition to beginning Spanish and Latin.
In August of 2015, I will begin my M.A. in English at New Mexico Highlands University.
I have over four years of tutoring experience at many levels. I spent three years employed with the Homework Helper program at White Rock Branch Library in Los Alamos, New Mexico. I assisted children ranging from first to ninth grade with any subject necessary, usually math or English. During the sophomore year of my B.A. at New Mexico Highlands University, I aided a fellow student, who has dysgraphia (a written language disability), with her required English classes and proofread her essays for many other classes. This endeavor resulted in the student receiving an A in freshman composition and on all of the papers I looked over for her.
After four years on the speech and debate team in high school and one semester of public speaking class at the university level, I have a high level of proficiency in public speaking, which I could easily pass on to a tutoring client.
I am comfortable with students of any age and can adjust my methods to suit the client. Because of my vast experience with English classes and public speaking, I am adept at communicating ideas to others.
Your first lesson, up to two hours, is half off! I have this policy so that I can spend time getting to know a student before getting started.
I would appreciate your time and consideration! Hi! My name is Katherine and I am a qualified English tutor. I am also willing to tutor other subjects at the elementary and middle school level, in addition to beginning Spanish and Read more
Your first lesson, up to two hours, is half price. In the event of a late cancellation, I charge $30.
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.
Whether you need help with grasping a concept in a high school Latin class or are looking for someone to teach you a bit of Latin so you can gain a better understanding of the terminology for your chosen career field, I can be of great help to you!
I took four years of Latin in high school, during one of which I achieved a perfect score on the National Latin Exam, an honor which less than 1% of students who take the test achieve. One of my greatest accomplishments in my fourth year of study was translating Apicus' "De Re Coquinaria", which many call the oldest surviving European cookbook, from the original Latin into English.
Depending on what level of tutoring and/or lessons you would like, I can provide a variety of materials. I own not only a Latin textbook for study but also several "just for fun" books (E.G. Harry Potter and Winnie the Pooh) which others have translated into Latin that would make excellent sources for exercises.
AUXILIUM MEUM VOBIS DARE SPERO. VALETE.
My experience in the field of public speaking comes from several sources. I spent four years on my high school's speech team, during which I competed at many tournaments and honed my speechwriting and presentation skills. In college, I took one semester of public speaking class to fulfill a core requirement, earning an A as a final grade. Furthermore, I have a great deal of experience with creating and giving PowerPoint presentations, also through my education. Finally, I spent several months advising and mentoring the students who participate in speech as an extracurricular activity at Los Alamos High School. All this has given me a broad knowledge base for being able to tutor students in public speaking.
