Katherine Hello there! My name is Katherine. I graduated from the University of New Mexico in 2016 with my BA in Economics and I'm currently pursuing my PhD at UNM, also in Economics. Learning is a passion for me, and I try to inspire it in others with my tutoring!... I believe that an understanding of fundamental concepts in a subject is the key to retention of material and problem solving. If you have the basics down, you can solve problems with the information you have about a given subject! That's why in my tutoring; I help students learn the basics behind a subject area backwards and forwards so that they can develop strategies to approaching and solving problems themselves.

Crystal ...adult students have arrived in my class reading and doing math at elementary school levels. With these students, I work tirelessly one-on-one to prepare them for their future endeavors. As a tutor, I have the privilege of watching my students grow every day. It is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. I understand how students acquire knowledge, and I have the experience to apply this understanding to aid with student outcomes.... My goal as a literacy educator is that each student leaves my class better equipped to read, write, and contribute to society than when they arrived. My teaching philosophy mirrors those goals. A recent New York Times article interviewed an educator who claims that there are three additional “R”s on which we should focus: “…relationships, reflection, and resilience”. I endeavor to weave these ideas into my procedures and instructional methods. I have been teaching for eight years. Through the years of teaching I have taught English to every grade from seventh through twelve, high school Spanish, elementary summer school, GED, adult basic education, and university composition. Each teaching assignment and new population has taught me new things about great teaching. At this point, I am an instructional chameleon, changing my methods according to the needs of the students I am teaching.
