About Katherine

I am a certified teacher in Elementary Education (K-6), Reading (K-12), and Reading Recovery at the Masters level. I have taught grades K - 8 and 11 - 12, Reading Recovery, and Reading Lab. If your child struggles in reading, I am able to help using effective, proven strategies. These are the subjects that I have taught: reading, writing, math, science, history, honors psychology, and built a careers course. Also, I have tutored many students in math, ranging from K to 7th.

I know what it is like to be the classroom teacher, pull-out teacher, parent, and student. I have taught formally for 13 years. I believe that each student is unique in his/her learning style. The curriculum should support the student, not define them. I am very flexible with scheduling, and I work well with willing parents. After meeting with the student one time, I am able to let you know what I am capable of doing in helping him/her improve. I revolve my tutoring methods around the individual student and his/her needs. I don't want any student to feel poorly about themselves.

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 my Masters in Elementary Education, and I have taught grades K - 6th. I am also Reading Recovery certified; I have taught reading lab as well for three years to help improve EOG scores in NC.

Phonics

I am Reading Recovery certified, and I have taught numerous children how to read using phonics alongside various other reading techniques. I have taught phonics itself for over 8 years. Also, I have taught my own children how to read.

Study Skills

As the reading lab teacher for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, I taught these students how to use testing strategies in order to score higher on their EOGs. I held this position for three years.
