Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

For 10 years I taught a course in the community that each year included up to 15 special needs students from ages 6-17, and included students with ADD/ADHD. I have also worked with ADD/ADHD challenged adults who were taking college courses; changing careers; or returning to school after a long hiatus. I am familiar with learning, studying, and test taking strategies for students with ADD/ADHD. I am also familiar with the process to identify and request accommodations for students to achieve success in the classroom, and other, settings.

Biology

I have taught high school biology and have mentored science students, keeping them on track with classroom work, laboratory work, and report writing. My science programs have been recognized by three U.S. Presidents. I help students find internships and real life experience in the science field. I currently work with Educurious Experts, a program of the Bill Gates Foundation and the National Science Foundation. I love science and will instill confidence in your child!

Botany

I have a B.S. minor in Biology and completed the following Botany courses: Biology of Plants, Plant Propagation, Botany, and Greenhouse Management. I have also pursued Botany as a hobby for 25 years. I have experience in native plants and in creating habitats for birds, butterflies, bees, and other species.

Career Development

I have supervised community service interns and mentored students in high school and college for many years. I help my students focus on options for future studies and on career development. My interns get jobs in their fields and/or continue their education to achieve their career goals.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have developed and taught K-6 students for more than 20 years, integrating science, English, history, writing, public speaking, and community volunteering into my courses. I have a master's degree in teaching in elementary science. My courses have been recognized for excellence by three U.S. Presidents. I am part of an innovative program funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the National Science Foundation to bring technology into public school classrooms.

English

I have been tutoring English, ESL, writing, and public speaking for decades and love it! I am a professionally published author, have been a speaker at international conferences, and conduct workshops for adults and children. My programs have been recognized by U.S. Presidents.

NCLEX

I have tutored study skills and test taking for over 20 years, including helping nursing students pass the NCLEX. I have a B.S. in Chemistry, with a minor in Biology, and a master's degree in teaching. My past nursing students have included those who have difficulty passing tests due to test anxiety, ADD, or ADHD.

Public Speaking

I have been developing and conducting public outreach and education for over 25 years. My audiences have included K-12 students and adults. I have spoken at annual meetings of national and regional associations. I develop and conduct professional workshops and facilitate business meetings. I have been professionally trained in public speaking as well.

Study Skills

I have worked with students in grades K-12 and adults to address test anxiety, ADD/ADHD, improving study skills and staying on course with projects. This work includes one-to-one tutoring and mentoring as well as working with whole classrooms of students via a computer platform through organizations such as the Gates Foundation.

Kathy’s Resources

Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community. Here are some of the resources created by Kathy. View all of Kathy’s resources

When I write a paper, I want to write about something that I am passionate about so that I can share my experiences, knowledge, and information with others.  If you are very interested in the topic, you will have more fun with it and the task will seem easier. 

Summer is a great time for reading about favorite subjects within the student's study area. Creating and working on science or other projects in the backyard can help to keep students motivated and ready to start classroom learning again when school starts. A lot of schools and communities have free summer science camps, too. that can supplement and support our regular lessons. Any other ideas... read more
