About Kate

I have been teaching for 28 years and have experience with a wide range of learning styles and abilities at all grade levels kindergarten through grade 6. I began my teaching career on the East Coast teaching in private schools. When I moved to Portland in 1990 I began my career with the Portland Public School District. I currently work for the Riverdale School District. I left the classroom for 6 years to work in curriculum and assessment but returned to the classroom 3 years ago.

Because of my 28 years of teaching experience I am extremely qualified to tutor at all grade levels through 6th grade.

I aim to make learning a fun and happy experience. I am warm and nurturing and love teaching!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a Standard k-8 Oregon State Teaching license in Elementary Ed. I am also licensed to teach grades prek-8 in both New York and Massachusetts.

Handwriting

I have taught all elementary grade levels (Kindergarten through 6th grade) over the past 28 years so have had experience teaching all of the various stages of handwriting from the very beginning to the end.

Phonics

I have been a teacher for 28 years and have taught all grades K-8. I have had extensive experience teaching phonics. I use the ReadWell Program and supplement with many other resources. Teaching Kindergarten has increased my tool box of strategies for teaching kids phonics.
