About Katie

I first want to start out by saying that I have a passion for what I do. I have over eight years of experience as a tutor, teacher and mentor and it has been a very rewarding journey so far. I am currently a Secondary/Special Education Graduate student and am enjoying the process thoroughly. I earned a Bachelor Degree in Accounting and History in 2009, so I also have a background in Business. I will always be glad and willing to tutor in any class dealing with Business as well.

I consider myself a very patient tutor, which I think is essential to the process. That said, I usually offer the student a few options in which to learn the material. I then let them decide which option makes the most sense to them. I believe Education and learning is a very personal process, which is why it should be tailored to each individual differently.

I currently work with a variety of students, from Preschool to College level. I am always happy to work with both General Education as well as Special Education students. My Practicum hours, for my Masters program, are currently in the process of completion at various schools throughout Cincinnati.

In my free time, I enjoy biking, the arts, antiques and reading a good book. My schedule is flexible and I am always glad to work around your schedule. I look forward to helping you or your child in the future!

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.

Aspergers

I am currently attaining my Masters Degree in Special Education at Grand Canyon University. My main employment for the last several years has also been teaching children who have Autism Spectrum Disorder. Once graduated, I will be a Licensed Intervention Specialist in the state of Ohio for K-12 special needs children.

In the last several years, I have worked in Education with children who have special needs. I both teach and tutor. I work with General Education as well as Special Education students, particularly who have Autism or Aspergers. I have tutored children with Aspergers and Autism in grades Pre-K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th, 9th, 10th and 11th grades so far.

During sessions, I make a point to tailor our time as needed to each student, since each will need different accommodations. For example, Aspergers students often need to be accommodated in a slightly different way than Autism students. The sessions can be prepared in a way that will most help that particular individual to optimize their learning. Often times, a student with Aspergers will benefit most from a highly engaging session with a lot of personal attention to keep them on track. I make a point to acknowledge the individual learning style of each student. This is a very important aspect to include, that will help reveal their full potential.

I have worked for a Home schooling Autism Scholarship Provider School in the Cincinnati, Ohio area for several years now. I continue to have a passion for working with these amazing children. In addition to my academics and years of experience, I have also been trained by Licensed Intervention Therapists in ABA Therapy and educational methods that specifically help with students with Aspergers and Autism.

I had some reservations about getting a tutor for my 8 year old that may have turned out to not be a good fit. Katie L. eased all of our worries!

Thanks Katie! -Update Working with Katie was great for our son, Dylan! He is doing great in school and a
