Hey future students! My name is Katie and I have been an English teacher for more than 5 years and a tutor for more than a decade. There is nothing I love more than connecting with students and watching them develop in their work. I like to have fun with my students so that learning becomes something to look forward to - just ask and I’ll introduce my bearded dragon! Creating individualized learning plans is one of my favorite parts of teaching, and I enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities. Whether you are an accomplished professional applying for graduate school or a beginning reader, I can help you take your studies to the next level.

I am an outstanding English tutor, with more than 10 years of experience teaching reading comprehension, creative writing, resume building, study skills, visual literacy, etc. You name it, I've taught it! I specialize in working with students with ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning differences that can make learning and studying anxiety-provoking.

I truly believe that anyone and everyone can be a proficient reader and writer, they just need the right teacher! If you think I may be the right teacher for you, send me a message!

French Horn

French Horn

I began studying French Horn in 2003 and have developed my skill through private lessons, community bands, and private orchestras. I performed with the CT All-State Orchestra while in High School and continued my studies in French Horn performance with the stellar music department at Vassar College. French Horn is notoriously one of the most difficult instruments to master; let's learn and grow together!

Professional tutor who clicked right away with our daughter!

My teen daughter clicked with Katie right away, and is very receptive to her as someone who also has ADHD. She feels understood with Katie and therefore is more receptive to what Katie teaches her. It's very hard for us to find a tutor (or therapist/counselor, etc.) that she responds to because she doesn't feel a connection and therefore is not receptive. We are excited to continue working with Katie on her organizational and executive functioning skills!

Sandi, 1 lesson with Katie

He smiled!

He sat down and they got to know each other. They talked about a "game plan". I actually saw him smile. Somebody understands him. Yay!!!

Nancy, 1 lesson with Katie

Very Knowledgeable

Katie is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She is a great tutor who is patient and was able to keep my son interested and focused throughout the lesson, which is an amazing feat.
