About Katie

I am a dual certified Elementary/Special Education teacher with more than 15 years' experience in helping students and their families find successful strategies for their educational challenges. While I primarily identify myself as a Special Education teacher my school district assignments have included inclusion classes, general education coverage of 5th grade math, ELA, science and social studies.

Lessons are built around current student's work and reinforced with materials from my "bag of tricks" which includes items with topics to enrich learning in a multi-sensory way including art supplies, puzzles and games.

Flexible scheduling for sessions most days 6 am to 9 pm and I am available to support home schooling.


I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about your child.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have New York State permanent Special Education certification and have had 15 plus years teaching experience working with children with wide variety of disabilities and developmental delays. This includes more than 7 years working as an Early Intervention therapist with children who have developmental delays. A big part of this progress is working with families and school districts when their children are first diagnosed in finding proper placement and providing support and strategies. Extensive training, professional development and workshops have included the use of multi-sensory techniques , focusing and attention strategies. Most of my independent tutoring students have fallen under this category.
