Tutoring while guiding the student is my purpose. I believe that all students can learn and become high achievers if they are given the appropriate tools and strategies.

Tutoring while guiding the student is my purpose. I believe that all students can learn and become high achievers if they are given the appropriate tools and strategies.

I have an MBA from Ohio State University, a BA in Economics and a BBA in Management (from St. Mary's at Notre Dame). I have a minor in humanities. My years in the business world, and more than 20 years tutoring students from kindergarten through college, as well as conducting corporate training have permitted me to help students learn at their potential.

Whether it is reading, writing, history, social studies, math, or many other subjects and even study skills, I can help you catch up or overcome difficulties in your subject. It would be a joy to help you.

I love working with (rather than against) a student's particular learning style. I passionately believe that each student can learn and become a high achiever.

In the areas of math, I take a step-by-step approach.In reading, I rebuild with phonics. In social studies and history, I teach the student how to connect and apply the information, and find parallels in other parts of history.

Through all of my tutoring, I go with the student's learning style. You can succeed with my help --- let's get started!

Elementary Math

Elementary Math

I have years of experience working with students on their math concepts. Elementary math, pre-algebra and algebra are among my favorites!

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

When it comes to math, Algebra is my first love. I find with my students that many of their problems with Algebra can be fixed with careful review of strategies for solving the different categories of equations. Algebra is my very favorite subject to tutor. Besides that, true memorization of math facts (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)~so that students instantly know the answers, will go a long way in improving the math grades.
Geometry,

If you are struggling with geometry, contact me. You see, you really can understand theorems, postulates, proofs, triangles, parallelograms, and oh so much more. Don't wait and figure 'oh it will get better'. Let's work together. i will encourage you and help you. You CAN do this!!
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I absolutely love tutoring Pre-algebra. It is a key stepping stone to all of high school math. Students can succeed in pre-algebra with proper tutoring even if they have had difficulties in the past.Their difficulties often can be resolved when they learn proper tools and strategies.

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

The ADD/ADHD students I have worked with have actually been quite a joy. the key for me has been to determine what learning style they appear to have. I try to adapt the material and session to play to their strengths. I have over 10 years of experience in tutoring students with ADD/ADHD. I have attended seminars covering learning styles in special needs students in the course of my tutoring. This has led me to conduct seminars for teachers in addressing learning styles in special needs students. In my corporate career, I conducted training seminars for managers in how to train their employees that had adult ADD. Overall, I have about 15 years of experience in teaching people with ADD/ADHD.

My absolute favorite part of the GED to tutor is math. Great progress can be made with steady work and multiple tutoring sessions. Math difficulties stem from big holes in knowledge and missing tools. My strength is to provide those exact things.

Test Preparation

ASVAB,

ASVAB

I am an excellent tutor in the big subjects on ASVAB (Math areas,Reading, Writing. ). I recently tutored a student who went from a 24 to a 56 on her ASVAB, using my guidance and tutoring. I work with the student to fill in missing gaps in math knowledge and math reasoning. We work on math skills and test taking skills. We work on vocab and reading comprehension. Contact me, let's get to work, and help you achieve your dreams.

Very helpful

We are very impressed with Kate. She is very positive and patient with my son. She has been very accommodating to our schedule as well! We look forward to keep working with her.

Angelyn, 3 lessons with Kate

Friendly and patient

Kate is a very sweet person. My daughter has a hard time with being around people she does not know and is easily discouraged when she does not pick something up right away. Kate is patient and makes her feel comfortable, so she looks forward to working with her. If you knew my daughter you would know what a compliment this is to Kate and her abilities.

Sandra, 10 lessons with Kate

Kate is excellent!

My daughter has a very difficult time with math. Kate is great! She makes my daughter feel so much more confident each time that we meet with her!

Theresa, 24 lessons with Kate

Very patient and interactive

Kate was wonderful. She helped me grasp some concepts that were difficult, and made them easier to comprehend. She was very interactive used visual aides and taught new tools to help get problems resolved faster and efficiently.

Excellent Tutor!

My husband is an adult learner who has struggled with math his entire life. He also has ADD and some other learning difficulties so when it came time to retake a math class for the third time, we knew we needed to bring in reinforcements. Enter Kate. Kate has turned my husband's phobia of math into a comfort level that I've never seen. He even said today, after coming home from his tutoring session, "I've never felt this comfortable with math before"! This is HUGE! Not only is Kate patient, but she tailors the tutoring sessions to the specific needs of her clients. She has taught my husband tips and tricks to help him break down the math problem and make it feel less overwhelming. She has made herself incredibly available as well so we could work around my husband's school and work scheduling needs and we have appreciated that very much. I will forever be grateful (as will my husband) for our experiences with Kate and we highly, highly recommend her to anyone, including adult learners, who find math to be tedious, overwhelming and daunting. She has made the entire math experience for my husband not only tolerable but, she has helped build confidence and a feeling of accomplishment in him that I am so thankful for. Thank you Kate! You are amazing!!

Dear Lyndsay~ Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so very thrilled that your husband was able to improve so much during our tutoring sessions. He was surprised that there are so many ways to learn math. I could not be more pleased that he succeeded. His work ethic and determination helped him so much. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to tutor him~~ Kate

Very Versatile

Kate is a sweet woman and very versatile. She helped my sophomore son with algebra 1, world history, an English project, and study skills. For algebra, she was able to relate the lessons to something my son loves - football. For history, she showed him how to pull out key points from the text. And thanks to Kate, my son went from not really knowing how to take effective notes to getting an A in the class. The teacher even used his notes as an ideal example for the rest of the class. She also took time to go over his schedule and help him organize his after-school hours so he could be most effective with his time. Also, when he had large projects, she helped to break them down into manageable pieces. I highly recommend Kate!

Great ideas!

Kate knew exactly where to start with my daughter. She gave me great ideas on how to work with her at home. She was always patient, kind and persistent in making sure she was prepared for tests. Thanks, Kate!

Tutor responded:

Your daughter is an absolute delight, and is a joy to work with. She is learning so quickly ~ and I know that we can come up with ways to help her with test-taking skills, too. Thank you for your kind feedback!

Great tutor!

Kate tutored my son with the goal of raising his ASVAB (military entrance exam) score. Before tutoring, his score was 19 -- after tutoring with Kate for a relatively short period of time, our son's ASVAB score rose to 40! Our son enjoyed his tutoring sessions with Kate and found her to be patient and kind with a positive outlook and always ready with encouraging words. Thank you, Kate, for your very valuable help. We would highly recommend your tutoring services to anyone needing that extra help to achieve their goals!

Awesome with Algebra!

We had a great session tonight! We were able to finish up my son's algebra homework and spend some time working on graphing equations. He added these extra notes and examples to his folder. Excellent session!

Cathleen, 27 lessons with Kate
Tutor responded:

Thanks for the great feedback. He did a great job during the entire session. He paid close attention, willingly worked extra examples, and did not get discouraged when he made errors. He hung in there and kept on trying. As a result, he made great progress in learning to graph equations. The thing that impressed me even more was that he asked if he could keep the notes and examples that he had done during the session. He immediately put them in just the right spot in his binder. Now THAT is a guy who is taking charge of his education. He has come so far already, and I am so proud of him.
