My name is Katharine, and I specialize in tutoring English. I've tutored independently for 6 years, and generally work with children, grades 1-12. I specialize in English, and teach vocabulary, spelling and reading fundamentals. For my first session with each pupil, I do an assessment of their reading skills to determine their ability level, and then I customize my tutoring methods and materials to suit their individual needs. I then develop strategies for learning that coincide with the pupil's abilities and interests, to motivate students who normally don't like to read. I also provide incentives for good progress each week, and let the parent choose what type of reward is appropriate for their child.
My college major is Psychology, and I take the time to utilize my knowledge of thoughts and behavior to enhance the tutoring process. I draw upon information I learned from classes such as psychology of adolescence, and personality theories to hone in on personality traits in my pupils that may require modification to improve the study habits and overall progress of my students.
I enjoy my job, and I especially love working with children, who seem to love me back. I'm very flexible, and will work with you to find a time that is most convenient for you. I will come to your home if you prefer. I have excellent English proficiency skills. I scored 115% on vocabulary, 99% on reading and 32 in English skills on my college entrance report from Dixie College. I'm ready and willing to work, and look forward to hearing from you soon!

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
