About Katherine

My name is Kate and I am a Professionally Certified Teacher in both Elementary Education and Reading. I have 6 years of experience teaching and 13 years experience in tutoring. I received my bachelor's degree from Purdue University (main campus in West Lafayette, IN) in Elementary Education with a Concentration in Reading.

I love teaching! My favorite part of teaching is when you see the "light bulb" turn on when a student suddenly understands a concept. I am very passionate about what I do and I work very hard for my students. I have a strong ethical background and am very honest.

The methods I use vary depending on how the student learns. During the initial session, my main goal is to learn about the student. This is a crucial step for me so I can help them succeed.

I would be honored to be the teacher that helps you (or your child) reach their utmost potential. I have glowing recommendations from former colleagues, administrators, and students that I would love to share with you.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Blessings,
Kate

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

During my teaching career I have had numerous students with ADD/ADHD that have been included into my classroom. I am very confident in my abilities to teach them. I use a variety of techniques to help students learn. An example of one technique that I find very helpful is to have the student use a stress ball during instruction.

As a classroom teacher I have taught all of my students study skills. In the classroom, I work on different strategies that the student can use.
