About Catherine

I was born a teacher, and wanted to be one since second grade! After graduating Teacher's College in Brisbane, Australia, I taught elementary school grades (grade 2-7) at three different schools. I then traveled to Europe, where I was a guest speaker and substitute teacher at various schools in Sweden. After marrying and settling in California, I have worked various jobs which involve teaching children of all ages, such as tutoring ESL students; substitute teaching - short and long-term; teaching Sunday School; and being the lead academic teacher at a group home for girls. In 2013, I completed a Bachelor of Science in Education at Liberty University, while I was a stay-at-home mother.

Now that my children are in college and high school, I would like to return to teaching children. I love helping others, and especially helping children succeed in their education, by developing a love of learning. In my last classroom I had a poster that displayed a Nelson Mandela quote: "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." I strongly believe this.

I am that person who sees spelling mistakes in public places and cringes! With texting being a way of life, it is so easy for children to spell incorrectly. My children have called me the "Grammar Nazi" at times! I love being able to see when students "get it" and can understand. It's such a positive experience for everyone. I also strongly believe that children need to develop a love of reading, which I instilled in my own children at an early age. Another skill which a lot of people are extremely afraid of is public speaking, and this is a skill which everyone needs at some point in their lives.

If you need extra help, or would like to learn some new skills that will help you succeed in school and life, please contact me about scheduling a time to meet. I try to make learning fun, and have lots of interesting stories from places around the world where I have lived!
