All of Kathleen’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Kathleen’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Aspergers

I have researched Aspergers and Non-Verbal Learning Disorder in great detail, dealt with special education matters in the Public School and Private School systems, and also worked closely with therapists, psychiatrists, school guidance counselors, and teachers. I have attended lectures and symposiums on Aspergers and Non-Verbal Learning Disorder at Yale and NYU and was also invited to the White House by Tipper Gore and President Clinton to attend and contribute to the White House Conference on Mental Health in 1999.

College Counseling

In addition to my lengthy career as a successful writer and editor, I have helped innumerable students, including my own three children, craft genuine, comprehensive, and ultimately winning college application essays. I help students create effective outlines, highlighting their particular interests, achievements, and general life experience. While I assist in helping to edit and develop strong, creative essays that address the prompt, I take care to ensure the essay reflects the students' own voice and personality. I am keenly aware of how to remain true to the student and the overall application process.

GRE

I am a specialist in GRE preparation, with particular emphasis on the Verbal and Essay Writing portions. I am currently preparing several college students for the next GRE and understand the stress of managing heavy course loads and graduate school requirements. My students are encouraged to take advantage of my ability to work with them online, as a supplement to our in-person tutorials. This is of particular importance if there is a need to strengthen writing skills and overall understanding of the Analytical Writing Assessment.

Public Speaking

I have been writing and/or giving speeches for most of my adult life. I was very active in jr. and sr. high school in positions that required public speaking and held leadership positions at Emory University (Rush Chairman of my sorority and Editor of the college newspaper) that required constant public speaking roles. My first job out of graduate school was as a speech writer for a congressman on Capitol Hill. I spent years in NYC interviewing musicians and actors and have delivered many a speech both in and out of the office. And, finally, I spent nearly a decade writing and directing weekly scripts for my syndicated radio show.

SAT Reading

I have successfully prepared innumerable students for the SAT, with particular emphasis on reading comprehension. I am certified by a nationally recognized organization in this field as well and have prepared my own set of informative and interesting tests to allow students to learn how to "read" between the lines. There is a method to test-taking and the SAT is no exception.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
