Hello! I'm Katia, and I'll be there for your child. I excel in one on one tutoring and I am a substitute teacher with Atlanta Public Schools.
I have a B.A. in English and Comparative Literature with a minor in Medieval Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Go Heels!) so super old books by super dead people are my specialty. I also love American literature and anything from the Romantic Period (we're talking William Blake and Wordsworth not John Hughes and Ryan Gosling).
I'm also a pun master with an affinity for bad jokes so you'll be giving me a lot of pity laughter and side eye!
I have taught children from all kinds of backgrounds and come from a big family, so I'm patient and know how to remain focused. My career has been marketing and media focused, but I've always had a passion for teaching. That's why I do this!
I'm excited to work with you and your child to get them a better future.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe in connecting with students at the level they need. Everyone learns differently, and that's where I think one on one teaching is its strongest. I'm also incredibly honest with students. I've found they most respect you as an adult when you treat them like one too. And mutual respect is the only way to get someone comfortable enough to ask for help. I won't sugar coat anything for a student, but I will show them incredible patience because they're still learning.
