About Katie

Hello, my name is Katie, and I am a New York City school teacher. I have a master's degree in Middle Eastern Studies from Columbia and I am working on a second one in Special Education and math. My bachelor's degree is from Princeton, where I graduated with high honors and studied mechanical engineering. This summer, I am teaching global history, but I have also taught and tutored math, humanities and ESL at the elementary, middle and high school levels. In addition, I have taught SAT and SHSAT prep classes and helped adults prepare for the GED.

I love teaching students of all different interests, needs and ages and 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 currently teach fifth grade English, social studies and study skills in East Harlem. I have also tutored younger students extensively, ran a tutoring group for 3rd through 5th graders, and done art therapy with pre-schoolers and kindergartners. I have spent a lot of time volunteering at Head Start, and in gaining this experience have learned how to address both behavioral and academic needs of elementary and pre-K students.

Study Skills

Over the last nine years, I have helped several students develop their study skills, with a specific focus on building organizational systems, managing ADD/ADHD and developing strong test prep habits. In addition, I am currently completing a master's degree in education with a focus on special education, and my coursework has given me even more strategies for helping students with organizational and executive functioning needs. Based on my experience and graduate school training, I can help students develop study plans and routines, form more productive habits around studying and manage anxiety around homework and test prep.

Great tutor that I would reccomend! — I would like to recommend Katie M. as a tutor. She has helped immensely with my Algebra 2/Trig class. I am homeschooled and I was having trouble studying for an exam. I found Katie through WyzAnt and she has been a great help. She's very clear, patient and she has a great attitude. I ended up doing well on my exam and if I ever have trouble again, she would be the first person that I would call. ...
