About Kathryn

I am a recent graduate from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa where I double majored in English and French. I have just returned to the United States from France where I had been living for the past six months while studying at the Sorbonne. While at university, I was a tutor in the French department, and frequently helped edit my friend's papers, job applications, resumes, and any other piece of writing they brought me. I love being able to help and spread my knowledge and hope to work with you in the future.

I am a straight A student with more than six years of French experience. I've been to France three times now, and studied there twice. I have six years of experience as a newspaper editor and have published articles for seven.

I love learning and, as an extension, helping others learn. I promise to make lessons fun and engaging!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

French

A recent graduate from university with a double major in French and English literature, I have six plus years of French experience (reading, writing, and speaking). I have been to France three times, twice to study, and recently returned from a full semester at the Sorbonne. I am currently considering attending grad school for French and tutoring students in French would be a huge help! During my last year of undergraduate, I worked as a tutor in my university's French department.

Grammar

A recent graduate from university with a double major in French and English literature, I have spent many years perfecting my skills in reading comprehension, writing, and editing. I have had experience writing and editing for newspapers for a little over four years and have frequently helped my friends proof-read anything they bring to me. I am a stickler for grammar and have been told that I explain concepts well. I believe that most people's trouble with grammar in writing comes from a mental block since most people I have met speak perfectly fine but have issues translating this to the page.

Literature

I absolutely love to read and likely have a working knowledge of many books students might come to me with. If I don't know the book in question I am willing to find a copy and read it alongside the student so that I can help them. I have had experience writing and editing for newspapers for a little over four years and have frequently helped my friends proof-read anything they bring to me.

Proofreading

I have had experience writing and editing for newspapers for a little over four years and have frequently helped my friends proof-read anything they bring to me. I am willing to look over any type of written paper including, but not limited to: resumes, job applications, scholarship applications, student papers, articles, and creative writing pieces, etc.

Very flexible to my needs. — I did not need a tutor because I was struggling with french, I needed one to teach me. Only after 6 meetings, Kathryn has helped me come so far. I have never taken a french class before, but after doing a written and oral interview with the french teacher at my school, I will be entering french 2. She was very helpful, especially when it came to pronunciation. She answered all of my questions and ...
