About Kate

My name is Kate and I live in Lockport, New York. I am a NY State certified teacher in general and special education for ages birth through grade 6. I attended Daemen College to earn my Masters Degree in general and special education and graduated in 2005. I also received my Bachelors Degree there in psychology.
I have teaching experience with children ages 1 to 7. I also have teaching experience with children with special needs, especially autism.
I am currently working as a part-time service provider for Lewiston Porter Schools in special education.
I have several tutoring approaches that I use. Applied Behavior Analysis, ABA is one. This approach is used with all children to help them retain new skills that they are learning. Another approach is hands on and interactive techniques. Children seem to like these activities. Using a variety of approaches will help your child to be successful.

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.

Phonics

I am a New York State Certified teacher for birth through 6th grade. One of the most important skills taught to students during this period is reading. I have taught many students reading skills in classroom situations and one-on-one. I know that Phonics are one way to hekp a child learn to read.

A wonderful tutor!

Over the past month, we have noticed a good improvement in our daughter's math comprehension and math test grades and want to thank Kate for this accomplishment. We are very pleased with her knowledge and patience she exudes towards Brianna. I am so glad I chose WyzAnt!
