About Katie


Bio

I'm Katie! I am currently a sophomore at Barnard College where I am studying political science and economics, with an emphasis on international political economy and development. Throughout my time at Barnard, I have learned that no matter where you are or what school you attend, there will always be bad teachers––teachers that exclusively use YouTube videos as teaching tools, teachers that would rather fail a student than put in the time and effort to work with them and help them understand...

I'm Katie! I am currently a sophomore at Barnard College where I am studying political science and economics, with an emphasis on international political economy and development. Throughout my time at Barnard, I have learned that no matter where you are or what school you attend, there will always be bad teachers––teachers that exclusively use YouTube videos as teaching tools, teachers that would rather fail a student than put in the time and effort to work with them and help them understand the content, teachers that really don't care about teaching. As someone who has had her fair share of bad teachers, I know firsthand how easy it is to start hating a subject when you have an ineffective instructor. A teacher who is passionate about a subject can be a game changer, which is why I want pass my love for English and public speaking on to current students.

I want to help students approach each subject with an open mind and overcome the barriers that may be holding them back. I love seeing students' self-confidence grow as they realize that they *can* master the content that they once found impossible. For me, tutoring is less about the increase in grades and the boost in self-esteem that accompanies that increase.

I have five years of experience in teaching public speaking, research, and debate as well as two years of experience in private debate tutoring. I am currently a debate coach at a high school in Brooklyn where I work with students on conducting research, written and oral argumentation, persuasive writing, and public speaking. In addition to formal tutoring experience, I frequently help my classmates study for exams in both group and individual settings.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule lessons! I'm more than happy to discuss my background or approach with you so that you can make sure that I am a good fit for you or your child.

Great PF coaching

My daughter and her debate partner had one lesson with Katie so far (for PF) and thought she was very helpful in focusing and prioritizing on their key arguments and how to translate those arguments to lay and prof judges. They have not had this kind of guidance at their school. We look forward to working with Katie in the future.
