Hello! My name is Cathy, and I have a great deal of experience with working with young children. I have a Master's in Early Childhood Special Education. I have worked with children with autism and other cognitive challenges, especially.

Personally, I am a mother of 3 and grandmother of 2. I live in Greeley, CO. I love to incorporate Play with Teaching; if my tutoring is considered a chore, who benefits from that?

Before attaining my Master's, I was an English Teacher. I have a B.A. in English (specializing in literature, as well as writing/grammar). I come from a long line of English teachers -- being a good writer, and having a love of literature is part of who I am.

I work with children where they are in their development, and challenge them in a appropriate ways to grow. I like to think -- How would I like to learn and have this explained to me?

I love working with all children; I have worked in several different school districts and have also done home visits to work one-on-one with children.

Being a tutor, I am not just working with your child; I am a partner with You, as the Parent, as well. I would welcome the opportunity to work with your child, and, together, challenge and work with him/her to achieve success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Autism

I completed my Master's degree with a final project focusing on The Benefits of Early Intervention for Children with Autism. I spent over 6 months on this project.

I have also been a classroom teacher for preschoolers with the most intensive needs. In addition, I was trained in educationally diagnosing young children with autism.

Special Needs

I have a Master's in Education and a teacher's license in Colorado for Early Childhood Special Education.
