Hi there!

I am currently attending Houston Community College and my degree program is in Behavioral Science. I have experience privately tutoring the State of Texas's "core" curriculum courses. This includes: English, American Government, US History, Algebra, Biology, and Social Sciences such as Psychology or Anthropology. I've also given lessons in violin, viola, and music theory.

My tutoring approach includes finding different ways of explaining material to students until I find the right method for the specific student. I feel that it's important to understand that each student is unique and may learn in different ways. As such, I explore whether a student is more likely to learn through vocal instruction, by note-taking, or by reading pertinent passages. I help them develop study skills that are appropriate to their style of learning. The majority of my students have been college students, but I am not adverse to teaching younger students as well.

Thank you,

Kathleen M.
