About Katherine

I am a certified teacher, 100% dedicated to educating and nurturing young children. I am driven by the principles of purpose, passion and a love of teaching. My teaching strategies not only include opportunities to learn, but also opportunities to develop character, leadership and critical thinking skills

I love the idea of tutoring because it allows me to utilize my best practices from my years of classroom teaching, to a different, yet equally important platform.

I teach to the individual needs of the student and utilize my years of experience in a meaningful way that would benefit children, community, your institution and me.

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.

Common Core

I am qualified to teach core subjects because I have formal teacher preparation training, I hold a standard certificate in this field, I present content to students in a meaningful way that fosters understanding, I am caring, fair and aware that each student has individual learning needs, I dedicate extra time to my instruction, preparation and reflection. These are some of the qualities that makes me qualified to teach core subjects.

Phonics

I am qualified to teach in this subject not only because I am a certified teacher, but also because I incorporate the fundamental principles of effective phonics teaching. Some examples are: I focus on the letters and combinations of letters that make up particular sounds and words. I provide scaffolding opportunities to practice their phonics learning in writing and reading context etc.

Study Skills

I am qualified to assist with study skills because as a teacher I am prepared and organized and can help a student minimize his/her distractions. I can provide an effective review of all key points which in turn, speaks to the curriculum covered, the learning goals and the grading expectations. These are just some of the ways in which I feel I would be an asset to a student with their study skills.
