About Katelyn

Throughout college I have had to opportunity to work with a variety of students and have been able to cater to all of their individual needs. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Spanish Language Studies with a concentration in Education. More recently I have been working with students, ranging from elementary to high school, who are part of the ESL programs in their districts. Based on the areas of focus, I have helped each child succeed in their desire to further their education while learning English as well. I have tutored in subjects such as reading, writing, spelling and grammar. Other areas include mathematics and some social studies. My fluency in Spanish has allowed me to communicate with the students effectively and their ability to understand English has increased greatly because of this. In some cases, I have also tutored Spanish. Seeing as the Spanish language is my most proclaimed area, I would really enjoy to help others in need of learning the language or improving their current skills!

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.

Algebra 1

I have had positive experiences tutoring students who needed assistance in Algebra 1. I was able to successfully bring their grades up by having them focus on the individual concepts used, therefore understanding the material better.

American History

American history has been a point of interest in students I have tutored. Whether they need to concentrate on specific past events or just would like to learn about the United States for their own personal gain, my knowledge of the area has helped the individuals.

English

Able to help students improve their knowledge of English by using suitable vocabulary, composing sentences and distinguishing proper forms within the language.

ESL/ESOL

I have had experience assisting others in learning the English language, specifically from Spanish to English.

Grammar

I have had many experiences tutoring students in need of grammar improvement, especially those who have learned English as a second language.

Proofreading

Working with ESL students, I have had a lot of practice proofreading their writing assignments and correcting the grammatical errors that were made. Not only do I make sure to correct students, but give them an explanation as to why their first attempt was not right, so they are able to use this knowledge for future reference in other writing assignments. Once they have an understanding of the subject, they will easily be able to identify what is right and wrong in texts.

Spanish

I graduated from Ramapo College with a bachelors degree in Spanish Language Studies and was also inducted into the Spanish Honors Program. My qualifications in the language can help others looking to further their abilities efficiently.

Study Skills

I am able to assist those in need of building their studying techniques with the various methods I have learned through education courses. I understand that each student tends to learn differently and it is important to focus on the different methods which work best for them.

Vocabulary

I am able to help those looking to either expand their vocabulary or define words through techniques learned.

Writing

I have always been a strong writer, both in English and Spanish, and am capable of using different writing techniques and teaching others to do so as well.
