About Kathleen

My true passion is working with children. I hold a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and have been an elementary school teacher for grades first-fifth. I have been tutoring for the past two years. I work with students first grade- 7th grade, giving them the skills they need to be successful learners. I am extremely patient and creative in helping each individual to learn according to their learning style. I would love to work with students who are being home schooled as well as students during the summer that may need extra help from a professional. I have three kids of my own, and I know that sometimes they listen better to a professional than to mom or dad when it comes to school work. I specialize in reading comprehension, writing, and math skills. I use resources that follow the Common Core standards.
I try to be flexible with time, and have a 4-hr cancellation policy, but will offer make-up classes.
To ensure students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work, I have a tutoring classroom set up in Rancho Palos Verdes.

I am looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

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.

Common Core

I have many resource materials at my home specifically for Common Core. These range for grades 1-6 which includes math, reading comprehension, writing. My clients for tutoring own the largest educational resource supplies in the United States and have provided me with over $2000 worth of the latest resources for Common Core. I have been using these supplies with my students for the last year. I hold a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential so work with children K-6th grade. I worked in Los Angeles Unified School district and Torrance Unified School district. I have a successful tutoring business based at my home and am looking to work more hours during the day with children who are home schooled.

Elementary Math

I hold a California Multiple Subject teaching credential and have worked with elementary age students for over 20 years.

Handwriting

I hold a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and have been an elementary school teacher for grades first-fifth. I feel I'm qualified to teach handwriting to elementary students. This was part of my daily lessons when I taught in the classroom. I feel it is very important to teach students this skill at an early age. I emphasize proper formation and have students practice until they feel comfortable and confident in their work.

Soccer

I have played soccer since I was a young girl. I played club soccer from the age of 8-18, playing High School soccer as well. I went on to play in college for 4 years at Division 2 Cal State Dominguez Hills and played a few weeks in Germany.
