About Kathleen

My love of learning and my passion to help others work together to make me both a kind and committed tutor. I have taught all ages through the years, including preschoolers and adults. I believe in helping the student fulfill his or her potential, in communicating clearly and in igniting excitement in my students.

One of my most effective methods is being able to give examples that are easy to remember. I love to think of silly statements or anagrams that help the student recall important concepts. I am patient in explaining the whys and hows of subject matter. One of my strongest goals in tutoring is to give the student a new confidence and belief in his or her ability to learn. With that in mind, let us work together to succeed in learning!

Speaking clearly, providing explanations without jargon, and making sure that my student understands the content are my priorities. I love English and will find ways to make it understandable and enjoyable for my students.

Having an N-6 certification and years of experience teaching youngsters, having raised three children of my own and having worked with youngsters in various community settings, I will put that experience to work for the students I tutor.

I love providing creative, meaningful examples, and will try alternate ways to get a concept across until I find one that works.

How can I help you succeed in learning? Email me and let's set up a meeting!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have permanent certification from MA in grades K-6. I also have over 16 years of experience in teaching, specializing in small group and one-on-one sessions.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Masters Degree with Distinction in Bilingual and Multicultural Education - ESL. I have been in a setting where I was learning a second language myself more than once in my life and remember what it is like! I love the English language and will help my students learn it.

Phonics

My undergraduate degree is in N-6 education. I have taught my three children to read using phonics, and they all excelled in reading and writing through high school and college.

Proofreading

As a teacher, wife of a professor, and recent student, I have been proofreading for many years. I rarely had mistakes in my writing because I understand grammar, spelling, and usage.
