About Kathleen

Education has always had a special place in my heart. I love learning and helping others learn. I began tutoring during college as a volunteer at two area elementary schools. I tutored 4th and 5th grade students in reading, writing, and math. I also spent three summers as a camp counselor, working with a wide variety of children ages 4-12. After college, I worked as a middle school reading tutor and as a substitute teacher while in graduate school. I student taught in kindergarten, taught 2nd grade, and did literacy intervention for kindergarten students.

I'm a native Austinite and love living here. I attended St. Edward's University and graduated with a BA in psychology. I went on to graduate school at Texas State University where I earned my MEd in Elementary Education as well as my EC-6 ESL teaching certification. I left teaching to stay home with my daughter who is now a wild, happy toddler.

Math is all around us and there are so many ways to understand numbers and develop numerical fluency. I use a combination of exercises, games, and varied explanations to help students reach their goals.

I love to read and believe reading is more than endless passages and multiple choice questions. Learning to read should be fun and interesting. I use reading material that is in line with students interests and teach reading skills with interactive activities and conversations. Grammar skills are integrated with engaging reading material.

Handwriting is all about patience, practice, and persistence. I incorporate Handwriting Without Tears as well as sensory activities to help students improve their handwriting.

I'm so excited to work with your child and help him or her reach their academic goals. Contact me to learn more and schedule a tutoring session!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a MEd in Elementary Education as well as a teaching certification for EC-6 ESL generalist. I have tutored students in K-7th grade since 2004 in reading, writing, and math. I also student taught Kindergarten, taught 2nd grade, and did literacy intervention for Kindergartners.

Handwriting

I have a MEd in Elementary Education. To help students achieve their handwriting goals, I use a variety of sensory activities. Students watch how to form letters, read books featuring specific letters, use materials to form letters, and write letters using a variety of materials such as water, paint, markers, and pencils. Students begin with lined paper and tracing letters and then move toward independently forming letters without aids.
