I have been a professional tutor for four years in biology, math and French. I have a Master's in Biology from James Madison University, and another in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Biochemistry from SUNY Stony Brook. While completing my graduate degrees, I taught several biology-related laboratories in the course of which students were required to write lab reports. They appreciated my willingness to proofread and edit their rough drafts in terms of both grammar and content and their report grades greatly improved during each lab course, so I have experience in teaching students to write papers that are grammatically correct, consistent and concise.
I have also completed the necessary training in order to teach in public school in Virginia. However, I prefer to provide one-on-one tutoring and enrichment opportunities as these experiences are far more rewarding than classroom teaching.
In addition, I have a solid mathematical background, having taken courses including calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and discrete mathematics. I have had a lot of success helping students understand the complexities of statistics, algebra, calculus and trigonometry. I feel that the root of my success is my ability to respond to various different learning styles and interests. I love to teach, and find that teaching students one-on-one is the most rewarding since we go at the pace of the student and I do not move on from one topic until I feel that the student is comfortable with that topic. I am also a native speaker of French and am happy to provide lessons in that language. In addition, I am currently in the process of completing a secondary education teaching certification, in order to teach more effectively at the 6-12 level.

Very Good Hired Catherine for my daughter at JMU. My daughter instantly text me and told me she really liked Catherine and finally "understood" chemistry. She's looking forward to meeting with her again. ...
