I am a secondary math teacher with 36 years experience, and many years experiences as a tutor as well. I spent 20 years at Mckinney High School with the best teachers ever! Together we wrote curriculum for algebra and geometry, and I still have tons of learning materials.

I had the highest scores from all 3 McKinney High Schools and know how to prepare for college and TAKS.I have been trained in hands on learning as well. I presently teach Algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and college algebra at a private, special needs school in Plano.

My son is ADHD and I teach at Great Lakes Academy, a school for students with learning differences including ADHD.


I presently teach at Great Lakes Academy, a school where many students have Aspergers. I have spent many hours in training with Spot University, and mastering tests over this. I attended a seminar by the March of Dimes, where adults with Aspergers gave testimony of their lives, and what helps them learn.


I am a math teacher and know the math material tested on PSAT. It covers algebra 1, geometry, and algebra 2. This is what I teach, and I passed the tests to tutor this material.


100% of my algebra students passed the algebra EOC and all but one of my 6th grade students passed the STAAR math.

Study Skills

I teach study skills at Great Lakes Academy. I teach outlining, main ideas, how to take good notes, learning styles, keep an interactive notebook, and make graphic organizers, along with Cornell notes, and how to develop good listening skills.


I taught 20 years at McKinney High were my students rated the highest in the district on their TAKS scores. I also have many years experience tutoring for TAKS, and my students have been very successful.

Great confidence builder! — My 8th grader really struggled with the Algebra concepts and the :45 class time with 30 other students just wasn't enough. Weekly sessions with Kathleen S. have made a huge difference in her confidence level with the material!! ...
