About Katherine

I hold a B.S. with a concentration in sociology and a minor in theater, and an M.S. in applied sociology from Texas A&M University - Commerce.

Students receive individual attention in a tutoring environment; as the instructor, this gives me a better opportunity to understand how your child learns. Getting to know my students as people, also reinforces the student-teacher relationship. In order to create an environment that is conducive to learning, before we begin, I like to meet with prospective students to discuss possible problem areas and their goals. A preliminary meeting is a melding of the minds, so to speak, a chance to see if we are a good fit for one another. This is paramount to ensure academic success in addition to providing the learner with an enriching experience.

My recent teaching experience includes three semesters as a part-time adult education teacher at Cochise College, teaching English Language Acquisition and all of the GED subjects. My strengths are in the subject areas of reading and social studies. Currently, I hold a provisional adult education certification in the State of Arizona in addition to volunteering for a local adult education program in Rockwall, Texas. I also have two semesters experience as a sociology instructor at Texas A&M University - Commerce. The class was an introduction to a social problems course for the Commerce High School, dual-credit, honors program. The class had two components; a classroom lecture, as well as a weekly, online discussion post regarding an ongoing social problem. My educational background is in sociology, social sciences, humanities, and theater.

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.

Sociology

I hold a master's degree in applied Sociology from Texas A&M University - Commerce, graduating with a 3.58 GPA. While at Texas A&M as a graduate student, I taught a social problems class for two semesters. Special topics of interest include sociological theory, social problems, and research methodology. My knowledge of research methods allows me to cross outside of my discipline; recently, I tutored a nursing student. I will provide samples of my work in addition to an official transcript upon request.
