Hey there! I'm Katie, a recent college grad and NYC transplant! I'm an seasoned writer and editor looking to spread my love of language to the student masses. In the past I've worked as both a volunteer tutor and a summer camp counselor. I love working with kids (and adults!) of all ages, adding a little panache to the traditional lesson plan and implementing out-of-the-box ways to help students learn and grow.
Basically, I'm not like a "regular tutor." I'm a "cool tutor." (Feel free to imagine me saying that a la Amy Poehler in Mean Girls.) In all seriousness, though: I'm here to help students reach their full potential as readers and writers--whether in English or French.
I minored in French, taking (and making straight As in!) grammar, composition, conversation, literature, film, and history courses. I also studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France for a semester, during which I lived with a French family, took a full courseload of classes (including English-to-French translation), volunteered at a French middle school and as a companion for the elderly, and even performed in a French play-- Moliere's last work, Le Malade Imaginaire.
As a freshly graduated Creative Writing & Literature student with a minor in Film Studies, I’ve been studying storytelling for years--both analyzing texts and writing my own fiction. Upon graduation, I was awarded my college’s senior award for excellence in the study of English, as well as the annual senior English essay prize, for my thesis paper on the works of Irish dramatist Brian Friel. Over the course of my academic and nubile post-grad career, I’ve written in every capacity a portfolio could contain: journalism, short stories, film scripts, promotional content, social media copy, high-brow literary analysis and low-brow "best of" listicles--so I can help you master any style, tone, or subject matter!
Whether you or your child need help with reading comprehension, conjugating French verbs, or even analyzing an Austen novel, I'll provide personalized lessons that engage and entertain as they enrich the learning experience.

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.
