About Katie

I am currently teaching Middle School and have taught from Kindergarten through Middle School. I am skilled at meeting students where they are both academically and with regards to learning-style. I have experience working with diverse populations, including students with special needs, learning disabilities, emotional disorders, and behavioral disorders. I will make each tutoring session interesting and therefore productive.

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching from Oregon State University. My teacher training and experience teaching has provided me with a variety of ways to engage students in reading. I can either choose material that is of high interest to your child or find a way to make the assigned reading more relevant. When students are interested, they are more eager to learn.

I have taught at many grade levels, from Kindergarten through 7th grade. I understand that each child is unique, and I tailor my tutoring to their needs.

I look forward to meeting you and your child and getting started on a new chapter of learning!

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.

Common Core

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching from Oregon State University. I have taught for 3 years using Common Core standards. I currently use Common Core standards to plan my units and lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. I currently teach 5th and 6th grades. I am licensed in ECE-8 Self-Contained. I have a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Oregon State University.

Phonics

As part of my master's program, I student taught in Kindergarten. The Kindergarten I taught in was for students that needed extra language support, many of them ELL. Phonics was a large part of our reading program.

Special Needs

I teach at a therapeutic boarding school for middle school students. Our students have varying diagnoses, including ADD/ADHD, Aspergers/Autism, dyslexia, and pervasive developmental disorder. I also worked for 2 years as a tutor for a child with cerebral palsy.

Study Skills

I am currently a teacher at a therapeutic boarding school for middle school aged students. My students have generally not been successful in school and have avoided going. One of the main things I focus on in class is how to be a student, including study skills.
