About Katherine

I've been teaching English as a full-time, certified teacher for 8 years. I've worked in charter schools, private schools, and alternative education sites. My bachelor's degree is in English literature, and I also hold a master's degree in secondary education, as well as an education specialist's degree in reading education. I'm also a teacher consultant for the National Writing Project.

I am not your ordinary homework helper. I have the training and expertise to properly diagnose a student's reading or writing issues, plan precisely tailored instruction for remediating those needs, and implement engaging instruction and inquiry opportunities. I truly love literature, language, words, and writing, and I plan to share my enthusiasm with your child. My specialty is finding great matches between reluctant readers and excellent books. If a teacher has expressed concern with your child's work knowledge, fluency, comprehension, or writing mechanics, and you're not sure what to do, I can help. If teachers have not been helpful with identifying or communicating why your child struggles, I can help. If your child seems bored in class and needs some one-on-one challenge, I can help.

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.

English

I have 8 years of English teaching experience, a B.A. in Literary Studies, an M.Ed. in Secondary Education, and an Ed.S. in Reading Education.
