About Kate


Bio

I am a former professor at Middlebury College, and I now do freelance tutoring and editing. I have taught eighth-graders in Chicago, and college students in California and Vermont. I have worked with migrant workers from Mexico who work on Vermont farms, and with high school students applying for college. I volunteer at my local elementary school reading with a student once a week. I love working with people one-on-one, and watching them progress at their own pace and in their own way. ...

I am a former professor at Middlebury College, and I now do freelance tutoring and editing. I have taught eighth-graders in Chicago, and college students in California and Vermont. I have worked with migrant workers from Mexico who work on Vermont farms, and with high school students applying for college. I volunteer at my local elementary school reading with a student once a week. I love working with people one-on-one, and watching them progress at their own pace and in their own way. I especially love helping people regain a sense of wonder about the world around them.

When I was a professor, I taught political science. I wrote a book about the complicated world of private security contractors who work in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I now work helping these companies change their policies to meet new requirements for human rights' policies. Although I sometimes travel overseas for my work, I am still committed to helping local Vermonters with their diverse educational goals. Tutoring is a great way to do this.

I love studying languages, but Spanish is the one I know the best. I have studied it for many years, and can speak easily. I also love reading and translating, and learning idioms. I am a type of person who studies languages as a 'hobby,' and I am currently learning Iraqi Arabic, and Turkish! I also participate in local conversational groups in Spanish and French.

Before I went to graduate school, I was an 8th grade English teacher at the University of Chicago Lab Schools, in Chicago. Throughout graduate school, and subsequently as a professor here in Vermont, I spent much of my time reading and editing the writings of students, fellow graduate students, and other academics. I still do work as a freelance editor.

I have a PhD in Political Science, and love anything and everything connected with understanding our social and political world.

Please get in touch to meet and discuss your particular needs. I look forward to meeting you.
