Bio

I began tutoring younger students when I was in the eighth grade, and while it has not been my only line of work, I have since tutored a variety of ages and subjects for a total of twelve years. I will learn about you and evaluate your individual learning style, then I will create personalized, structured lesson plans, and we will work together to meet your academic goals.

I began tutoring younger students when I was in the eighth grade, and while it has not been my only line of work, I have since tutored a variety of ages and subjects for a total of twelve years. I will learn about you and evaluate your individual learning style, then I will create personalized, structured lesson plans, and we will work together to meet your academic goals. I am a very patient and encouraging tutor, and I have worked with a range of students, from those with learning disabilities to Honors and AP students. I absolutely love a challenge and will put not only my mind but my heart into your success!

My tutoring students have varied in age from five-years-old to adult. I have successfully tutored many subjects including Prealgebra and Algebra; Elementary Math, Eureka Math, and Math Concepts and Applications; English as a Second Language (ESL); Learning to Read and Reading Comprehension; Formal Essay Writing (expository, research, persuasive, literary, TDA, etc.) and Creative Writing (narrative, reflective, poetry, etc.); Vocabulary; Grammar; Proofreading/editing; Science; Social Studies; SAT, GED and HISAT (all subjects), SSAT, and ISEE preparation; Study skills; and Test-taking skills.

As for my education, I graduated Magna Cum Laude (High Honors) from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in English. I also have Associate's degrees in Education and Psychology. Before that, I graduated high school with a 4.24 GPA while being one full grade level ahead in math, ELA, and science since the 8th grade.

Aside from tutoring, I have been an academic freelance writer and freelance editor, a substitute teacher for Horry County Schools, and am a wife as well as the mother of three amazing boys.

Elementary Math

I have tutored elementary math for a total of 12 years, and I am successful at it for three main reasons. The first is that I teach students the foundations of the topic so that they understand the individual parts and how they come together. The second is that I know a variety of ways to teach every topic and can cater to any learning style. Third, I have so many useful resources that help me to create personalized lessons for each individual student. My elementary math students truly enjoy their lessons, and they learn a lot too!

Cynthia, 24 lessons with Katherine

patient tutor!

Katerine is helping my son with reading skills. He is excited to go see her every week. She is very motivating and gives my son feedback every class. I like it that she provides her own materials and that she is working on his reading and writing skills in general.

Awesome writing tutor!

Katherine has helped my son tremendously with his cause and effect research paper. She got him to focus on the assignment and what it meant and helped him get his various thoughts into an outline form. She also guided him through writing his first "control", making him critically think his way through vice giving him the answer. My son is in high school but I would highly recommend her to anyone in any age group.

Knowledgeable tutor

Today she helped with comprehension questions, and synonyms. She went over comprehension and helped my daughter, showed her ways how to read the passage carefully before answering the questions.

Exceptional and awesome!

Katherine tutored my G8 girl since last year. She customized lesson based on my daughter’s language level. I can see the great improvement on my daughter’s ELA across reading, writing and grammar. Katherine is hardworking and patient. She is so nice, responsible and my daughter loves her class very much.

Great tutor for my 8-year-old daughter!

Katherine is sweet, patient, motivating, and is consistent with positive feedback. Her lesson plans are very helpful and I can see my daughter's confidence in her writing increasing already. I would highly recommend Katherine to anyone.

Great editing and critiquing skills

Katherine was able to review my document and edit it so that reads with clarity and is grammatically correct. I love that she critiqued my topic so that I was able to see an additional point of view besides mine. This gives me additional consideration moving forward with my work. I recommend Katherine without hesitation!
