About Kate


Bio

I am a recent graduate of Abilene Christian University. Receiving cum laude honors, I graduated with my BM in Music Education: Voice, K-12.

My certification in the state of Texas will be completed once I am fingerprinted. When I receive my Texas license, I will then apply for a New York state teaching certificate.

I am a recent graduate of Abilene Christian University. Receiving cum laude honors, I graduated with my BM in Music Education: Voice, K-12.

My certification in the state of Texas will be completed once I am fingerprinted. When I receive my Texas license, I will then apply for a New York state teaching certificate.

I have been giving lessons and tutoring since 7th grade in several educational areas. I teach to the individual and find individual ways of accomplishing the goal of learning: I teach kinesthetically, aurally, and visually.

I currently teach at The Little Gym of Webster, a suburb of Rochester, NY. I also babysit from time to time!

I give 110% to my students! I create quizzes and take-home assignments to further develop skills which cannot be developed in a 1-hour session. Want the best education around? This is the way to go!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a qualified k-12 educator who received my Bachelor's in Music Education. Having a k-12 degree allows me the ability to teach to all public school students in any area that a school may need my assistance. I have experience tutoring English, Reading, Spelling, Math, Science and Music.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I always received some of the highest grades in my elementary math courses. I teach using different learning styles, so you can bet you will be reached intellectually! For me, elementary math means: addition, subtraction, division, long division, multiplication (and mult. tables), basic equations, deciphering paragraphs, basic geometry, decimals, fractions, currency, and even reading time. If you or someone you know struggles with the aforementioned math components, please contact me for help! I would be glad to help you succeed.
Phonics,

Phonics

As a specialist in voice, I was required to take diction courses in college that cover English, French, German and Italian. I have an in-depth understanding of the International Phonetic Alphabet and know how to break down a language in such a way that it will make sense for reading comprehension and verbal recitation of literature. I received A's in all of my diction courses, and I am constantly complimented on my pronunciation. I have taught phonics rules to several children with success.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

I graduated from college in May 2012 with a 3.63 GPA (cum laude). If it were not for my study skills and organization habits, I would not have been as successful. I will help you organize each subject in a way that makes sense to you (once we figure out how your mind organizes!). Separate binders, key words, etc. all prepare you to study. When one is organized, one's mind is at peace and can obtain knowledge for efficiently. I will then teach you memory tricks and help you find educational tools online to make studying easier(flashcard generators, note-taking development, testing anxiety).

I have been running my own private piano studio for a year 1/2.

I can teach all major and minor (3 modes)scales, etudes, and musical works from the beginning to the intermediate levels. I concentrate on theory as it relates to reading and comprehension, technique and learning to appreciate and have fun with music.

Music

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I received A's in all of my music ear-training courses in college (SS/ET 1, 2 and ADV SS/ET 1, 2). I am a music education graduate with a GPA of 3.63. I have been commended on my sight-reading abilities and ear-training abilities. I can teach solfege or the number system, though solfege is a much more detailed ear-training process. I used la-based minor instead of do-based minor.
Flute,

Flute

I received my degree in music education, concentration in voice. This degree requires one to learn the flute as well as all instruments in band and orchestra. Because of my extensive musical training prior to college, I tested out of this course. In high school, I participated in the Texas State Solo and Ensemble competition in a flute trio, substituting at the last minute for a student who failed her classes. I was first chair flautist in high school and had both a flute solo and piccolo solo.
