My name is Kate; I've been tutoring since high school and have worked with students of all ages. My specialty is English Language and Literature, and my background is in both English and Drama, which gives my approach to language and tutoring a dynamic edge. I'm passionate about finding creative problem solving methods and fresh, engaging ways of approaching grammar and technique. My favorite book is Virginia Woolf's The Waves; I can't wait to find out what your yours is!
