She also worked in a high school, where she taught World Studies, Biology, American Literature, and Career Planning to sophomores. She also has taught Special Education with kindergarteners, fifth graders, and 10th graders. According to Kate, "Students whom I have tutored in the past say I make things seem so easy! My strength lies in presenting information in multiple modalities until it “clicks” for the student. Then we practice the skill in a variety of applications, and I provide the student with quirky ways to remember what they’ve learned. I have experience both in the classroom and as a tutor, but I am young and establish a great rapport with my students. As I demonstrated both as a basketball and track and field coach, I am a great motivator!."
