About Katherine

Good Morning to all! I love working with young children who are learning to read and write. I currently volunteer at a local elementary school as a reading and writing mentor. I have been doing this for the last nine years. I work exclusively with a first grade teacher running her reading groups; mostly with the more advanced readers, and I work one-on-one with the emergent readers and writers because these students tend to need more aid.

When I first meet a student, I like to find out what he or she is interested in so that I can incorporate some of those interests into the lessons. I use a verity of methods to teach the strategies that help a child succeed in reading and writing. Some of these methods may be modeling, brainstorming, discussion (used for comprehension)and picture walking. I may also include spelling tests and creative writing exercises to increase a student's proficiency.

I look forward to working with more students as they discover the wonders of reading and writing.

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.

Handwriting

I qualify to tutor writing because I have been a writing and reading mentor, mostly for first grade,for the last nine years. During my volunteer sessions I work closely with young students who are learning to write. I recently received my para-education certificate from Clackamas Community College and I have Bachelor's Degree in Communications.

Reading

My reading qualifications include: A BA degree in Communications and a Certificate in Para-education. For the past nine years I have been a reading and writing mentor, working with first graders in a local primary school. I work in small groups or one on one. I also tutor two students in reading and writing out side of school.
