Certified Elementary Montessori Teacher And Experienced Tutor
My name is Katie, and I am interested in working as a tutor or academic coach. During the coming school year, I will be available after 1 pm on weekdays and all day on weekends. I am also available for the duration of the summer.
I have a master's degree in elementary education from Loyola University. I also have a Montessori certification to teach ages 6 to 12 in all subject areas. I have been employed at a local Montessori school since 2007. For the past nine years, I have served as the lead teacher in a classroom for children from ages 6 to 9. This coming year, I will be taking on a new role at the school, co-teaching in a classroom for children from ages 9 to 12.
I have extensive experience with teaching reading and phonics, grammar, writing skills, mathematical ideas and processes, history, geography, and science. I am familiar with the Common Core Standards. My school does not have a special education department, and I work to design individualized lesson plans for each student based on their developmental needs.
In addition to my work as a classroom teacher, I have completed a number of long-term tutoring assignments with former students in the middle grades, especially in mathematics, grammar, reading, spelling, the writing process, and ISEE preparation. I have always received positive feedback from parents.
I am a strong communicator who is passionate about education. In addition to teaching and tutoring, I have taken on a number of additional responsibilities in recent years. I have led a number of faculty workshops at my school and have worked with the administration on developing a protocol for meeting the needs of diverse learners. I have taught parent workshops on topics such as academic content, fostering social and emotional development, and teaching time management skills and independence in the home. I have also presented workshops at statewide conferences on developing accommodations for children with special needs and on fostering the development of strong reading and writing skills in the early grades.
