About Kate


I have over 10 years of experience as an Assistant Teacher and Tutor for grades K-12, college, and adult professional students (including ESL). I have worked as an Assistant Math and English Teacher for a local charter high school since 2007. I have a BA and passed the CBEST test for teachers.

I tutor individually and in groups all over Ventura and Los Angeles Counties.

My approach to tutoring includes working with each student to create a list of goals and concrete ways to achieve them. I work with the student to discover their style of learning and use both conventional and unconventional ways to explain topics. I often use "out-of-the-box" examples to help students understand concepts that they are not grasping in school or in their area of study. I also like to relate the subject matter to their lives and use every-day situations to help them remember topics, if these work for them.

I'm flexible in my approach, but firmly believe that, given the right assistance, *any* student can learn *any* subject, no matter the difficulty.

Please contact me if you would like to schedule a trial session, would like a copy of my resume and references, or have any questions.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

I have extensive experience tutoring in all sections of the ASVAB (except the mechanical section). I help students to pass and improve both their AFQT and overall scores.

I have been trained in Career Development by the California Conservation Corps. Career Development Training Program. I currently tutor students in Career Development classes.

I teach simple techniques that make a huge difference in your writing. I have helped many students improve their scores tremendously!
