About Kathy

I am a NYS certified teacher in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. I have over 12 years experience working with children ages 1 - 9. My special areas of experience and interest are pre-k through second grade reading and pre-reading skills and pre-K-2 enrichment. Learning can and should be fun! I favor hands-on, child friendly and thematic approaches to literacy. Each child has their own style of learning, so I gear my lessons to the child's interests and experiences whenever possible. This approach can help your child improve their understanding across their grade level curriculum, tying in reading/English Language Arts, math, science and social studies. I have also have many years of experience helping children who are English language learners and welcome the opportunity to work with those children and their families.

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 have achieved the professional certification level for an NYS certified teacher. I have been teaching for 10 years with children in a variety of age groups and skill levels. I have a Master's degree in education and special education from the College of New Rochelle.

Handwriting

I have 6 years of experience teaching the "Handwriting Without Tears" curriculum. In addition, I have developed my own methods of teaching handwriting in a fun way for early childhood learners, involving shapes, colors, and music & movement activities.

Phonics

I have taught pre-reading and reading skills to early childhood learner for 10 years. I use an approach to phonic learning that is developmentally appropriate, using both visual and auditory aids, rhymes, songs and other means to actively involve the child in learning.

Study Skills

I have found that children learn study skills through a variety of means that include memorization techniques, outlines, flash cards and oral & written practice. The study method that will work best depends on the individual learning style of each student. Study environment and support is also something that must be appropriately determined for each student.
