Looking for a Tutor?
Hello! My name is Kate Buckius. I am a retired school teacher. I have taught elementary school students for over 30 years. I have a passion for teaching, and a great deal of experience and training in the areas of reading, writing and math. If you are looking for a tutor that enjoys working with students, particularly those who are struggling academically, It would be my pleasure to assist your child.
One to one coaching can be just what a student needs to begin working up to their potential. With consistent intervention, the student can grow in acquiring and applying new strategies. These applications inevitably lead to success and new confidence.
Education/Experience – Looking for a tutor is about finding a qualified coach
My educational background includes a B. A. degree in elementary education and a M. A. degree in learning disabilities and behavioral problems. I have served as a teacher, literacy coach, reading specialist and special education teacher over the past 30 years.
My teaching experience has been varied – 15 years in the private sector (Loyola Elementary School and Children’s Hospital) and 15 years of teaching experience working in the public schools of Denver, Colorado.
I love the flexibility being retired affords me. I have spent the last few years traveling, skiing, gardening and enjoying life. In addition to being a tutor, I am a hospice volunteer and a photographer. I have also served as an intervention teacher and mentor at Kaiser Elementary School and Noel Middle School.
