Smith College (Economics)
My name is Katherine and I am a new Seattle resident who simply loves teaching. While working on my Washington State Certification, I continue to teach and put the things I learn into practice. If you are looking for an effective, enthusiastic and professional tutor, please consider my qualifications.
I have had seven years of English/ESL classroom experience abroad and have taught students from age 6 to 60. My teaching experience includes TOEFL prep, English conversation, public speaking, business writing, grammar and much more. I also have 3 and a half years of experience in developing custom curricula for my clients. In addition, I have TEFL certification in progress. I graduated from Smith College in 1998 with majors in Economics and History and am quite knowledgeable in these fields. In fact, I was an economics tutor in university.
As a teacher and tutor, I have always been able to connect with my students and I have the patience to work with them until the subject or skill is mastered. Learning is not a passive experience and I do expect a lot of work from my students. In return, my students can be confident that I have also given 100%.

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.
