About Kathleen

I taught high school level English, grammar, composition, journalism, literature, ACT, SAT English and writing, and old Alabama High School Graduation Exam: language, reading, writing, history, and science portions for 30 years in Baldwin and Mobile Counties. I also taught journalism through being the school newspaper sponsor/instructor for 10 of those years.

I absolutely love being in the classroom or tutoring small groups, but student one-on-one time really gets me pumped. I feel that I was called to be a teacher at the secondary level. Despite the age written on my driver's license, interacting with youth still remains one of my passions. It gives me the ability to be in the trenches, so to speak, with being directly involved in the process of my kids evolving into whom they were meant to be.

I knew when I was in 8th grade that I wanted to teach grammar and composition, but I love the reading/literature as well. I have extensive classroom experience (grades 7-12), and about 20 years ago I submitted a proposal to my superintendent's office to design an elective that I called expository writing. To my amazement, the proposal was approved! I was even more amazed when enough students signed up for the class to become a reality, and it continued every year after, up until I retired. Then a couple of years later, the teacher who sponsored the school newspaper retired and asked me to take her place! That class was one I could hardly wait for, because the school had a room specifically designated for the newspaper with computers, cameras, software desktop publishing programs, the whole thing!

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.

ACT Reading

I have 30 years experience as a secondary English teacher. My experience includes classroom instruction as well as small group (3-5) or one-on-one preparation for a number of standardized tests, including ACT, SAT, AHSGE, and others.

Religion

I taught religion in a parochial school, and I have done a great deal of independent research on Judaism, Islam, Hindi, and Buddhism.
