Tutor profile: Katie B.
How would you help someone become a better writer?
I have a bachelor's degree in journalism, so I am skilled with corrective feedback and editing. I enjoy editing writing and offering specific feedback toward improvement. I can also help with organization and elaboration, two areas I have noticed have the greatest need among my classroom students.
What is your favorite book and why?
The Outsiders. I fell in love with this novel while teaching 7th Grade Language Arts. I love how raw the characters' emotions are. I also love helping young people interpret theme and create personal connections to the text. The best literature is the literature we can see ourselves living, even if we are of a different age, race, or socioeconomic status.
What are your strengths as an educator?
I am a clear and concise communicator. My experience in the classroom will be invaluable to students from all backgrounds. I am often recognized by my colleagues as someone who is organized, creative, and flexible.
