About Katharine

Hello! I am an experienced Elementary School Teacher with a strong background in Early Childhood and early learning. I have taught full day Kindergarten for 7 years and first grade for 2 years. I have worked with a diverse population of learners and I work hard to meet the needs of each individual child. I am certified to work with children in grades PreK-6, so I am able to tutor any child needing help with academics! I love working with children and have lots of great ideas that I use to help children make progress and gain confidence! I have tutored several children who really benefited from extra practice working on a specific skill or subject area.

Tutoring is a no brainer for me because I am a teacher and I work with children of all abilities on a daily basis. I am quite flexible and I can work around your schedule as best as possible!

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.

ADHD

As a Kindergarten teacher, I work with many different types of children. Younger students often have a difficult time focusing on an activity for a large chunk of time, so I am creative with how I teach. I have worked with children that have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and have experience making accommodations so that those children are able to learn and progress in a developmentally appropriate way. Hands on activities that allow for movement can be helpful to learners with ADD.

Common Core

I have been teaching in public schools for 7 years. During this time, I have used the Common Core to align teaching and address specific standards at the Elementary level. Our curriculum is aligned with the Common Core, so I am quite versed in this area.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught in Elementary schools for 7 years. I have experience teaching full day Kindergarten (6 years) and first grade (1 year). I am certified to teach children Pre-K through 6th grade. I have also tutored children in Kindergarten, first, and second grade.

Handwriting

I have used several handwriting programs throughout my years as a Kindergarten teacher. This is important because many children have not been taught how to properly form lower and uppercase letters with correct strokes. I have experience teaching handwriting to first time writers.

Phonics

As a Kindergarten teacher, phonics and phonemic awareness are a huge part of teaching children the foundational skills needed to become a reader. I have used several phonics programs with my young students. I am well versed in teaching children sounds and their corresponding letter combinations. This is an important skill for early childhood teachers to have, as it's the key to helping students become readers.
