About Kathryn

I have 3 years of experience in public education, 2 as a lead Special Needs teacher where I wrote lesson plans, managed behaviors, wrote IEP goals and held ARD meetings. For 3 years prior I worked in early childhood education, where the administration would send me the kids that were hurting. It was all of those experiences that led me to get experience in nursing as well as teaching; I have the skills to do both, however I love seeing those eyes light up when a new concept is learned & mastered! I ultimately believe it is my duty to coach physical education as well as regular education. I have always loved kids, books, art, and music, and this combines all of my passions together.

I have learned how to explain a concept in 3 different ways, and I like to use visuals as well as manipulatives, or music, whichever is most relevant to the student. All of my students passed the STAAR test the year I had my own classroom.

I have always been good at vocabulary, always asking questions about word meanings, and I have been able to uncover word meanings and find the learning process fascinating. I won spelling bees as a kid. And my band instructor would always write a word on the board that we would need to define after every lesson. I resonated with that and have chosen to include that in my teaching.

I worked in Content Mastery last year at a charter school for gifted and talented students, all of which had special needs. I am an avid speller, constantly correcting misspellings, sometimes to the displeasure of my friends and colleagues. I have been taught very good study skills over my lifetime that have aided me well in taking tests, as well as doing informal research on the subject.

Please do not hesitate to contact me on any new books you are reading, ask me any questions about my experiences, and just generally get involved! I look forward to working with you.

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.

Geometry

I passed Geometry in high school with a 3.6 grade point average, and always took the time to help others where they needed it. I took a course in Teaching Elementary Math at Texas State University from a professor whose main research focus was Geometry.

Study Skills

I have learned that each concept can be explained in 3 different ways; I have taught in content mastery for approximately 9 months where I had a caseload of 12 students. Also, I always tend to look at each problem from as many different angles as I can. I am skilled at problem-solving and passed all of my teaching certification tests the first time, as well as receiving a 900 on the GRE after two weeks of study. I have received admission invitations to receive my MBA at Syracuse, UMASS Boston, and others. Also, I love to teach!
