I had a 7-year career as an early childhood special educator, early childhood classroom teacher, and teacher leader/instructional coach with Denver Public Schools. In 2019, I left public education to support families who are engaging in alternative forms of homeschooling through coaching and tutoring. I have experience tutoring creative writing and reading instruction. I am most passionate about literacy tutoring through inquiry-based cycles. To expand my expertise in early 2022 I am participating in a Science of Reading certification course as well as a Teaching Writing Process accredited course from John Hopkins University.

I have years of experience working with students in special education and expertise in working with neurodiverse students. Specifically I have supported dyslexic, Autistic, and ADHD students learn the fundamentals of reading using Orton-Gillingham and Science of Reading methodology, sensory strategies, and student-led learning.

My goal for teaching writing is to support student’s writing interests and to teach them the writing skills most valuable to them in this moment of their life as well as skills that will lead to their future success. As much as possible the process of teaching writing should be individualized to the student. It should emphasize their strengths, be engaging and appropriate for their developmental level, and help them understand their resistances and their struggles

I have years of experience teaching and tutoring foundations in literacy. I have a Master's in Early Childhood Special Education. I was an early literacy leader in Denver Public Schools and am currently completing certifications in the Science of Reading and Teaching Writing Process.

I am a licensed special educator and taught for many years in the special education classroom. Since 2019, I have coached parents of neurodiverse children to implement homeschool programs that meet their child's needs. I am also a neurodiverse person and have a passion for supporting neurodiverse children.

Wonderful, Caring and knowledgeable Tutor

We are very happy that Katlin is tutoring our child. She is wonderful. We highly recommend her. She adapted to our child's style of learning. Her sessions are excellent and we always look forward to them. She brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to sessions. She uses very good material also. Our child continues to benefit a lot from sessions with her.
