My tutoring experience ranges from grade school to college levels, up to and including Calculus II and College Physics. I've tutored at Penn State's Learning Center as well as students at home. My passion for education comes through in my teaching methods, as I believe that all students have the ability to learn a subject as long as it is presented to them in a way in which they are able to grasp. I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations. I am also great at getting students excited about the subject they are learning by relating it to something relevant to them.
My passion about education led me to co-found a college coaching program in Philadelphia, which provided essay writing and college application coaching. Through this program, I have insight into the college application review process and can help a student discover their application theme/personal branding as well as construct thoughtful essay responses.

Catherine is a tremendous tutor. I am a novice in Excel and she very quickly got me up to speed. Catherine is also talented in teaching the broader quantitative elements of math and statistics -- a great combination of skills. Lastly, she is easy to work with and is always prompt, engaged, and responsive. I highly recommend her.
Catherine's first meeting was very good!!! Catherine was very patient and understanding, and we look forward to the next meeting.
I can't be any happier with the help I received to help me prep for my midterms. Not only was Catherine understanding and adjustable to my learning disabilities, but she also made me feel confident and wouldn't give up until I fully understood what I was learning. Can't thank you enough, you will be hearing from me soon!
Catherine is an excellent tutor. She really knows her stuff. I've had several tutors and she explains the material the best by far. She really makes it easy to learn the material. I highly recommend Catherine to anyone for all levels of math. I will use her for my next math class, Calc 2. Thanks!
Catherine was extremely helpful and patient in helping me grasp the material and preparing me for my math exam. She even showed me a couple of tricks to help me Remember the positive and negative graphing formula. I plan on scheduling an appointment with her the next time I need her help. She's a wonderful tutor!!!
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.
I have a Master's degree in Architecture and has practiced in the field for 4 years, mostly as an interior architect. I've tutored at Penn State's Learning Center as well as students at home.
