About Kay

My wide experience teaching is the result of a life long passion for learning and travel. I grew up in a military family, attended 16 schools before high school graduation and have unbounded enthusiasm for new experiences and knowledge. I have taught in rural, suburban and urban schools with advanced, average and special needs students. I have been a full-time certified teacher in 3 states.

My positive attitude and commitment to encouraging all students toward success whatever their current academic status help my students make measurable progress in achievement and attitude. Each new student represents a wonderful opportunity to work together to improve performance and increase their personal satisfaction. I can use a variety of approaches and techniques depending on student needs and abilities. I believe in a diligent work effort which involves relevant homework, accountability and measurement of progress.

I'm a mother and grandmother, animal lover, craftsperson, singer, actor and painter. I enjoy students of all ages and am expert at making them enjoy challenges and opening their minds to new ideas and possibilities for themselves. My tutoring is a way to help them bloom in ways none of us can now imagine. It's great fun and rewarding work.
I look forward to us planning how we can accomplish your student's academic goals. We'll make progress that will have a positive effect on other areas of your student's life. I'll enjoy the experience and so will she/he!

I teach exclusively via Skype.

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.

American History

I've tutored more than a dozen students in the last 3 years to improve their AP grade and prepare for the test. We can accomplish this goal together.

Political Science

My undergraduate major was political science. My 15 years of classroom teaching and AP history tutoring has given me a thorough knowledge of theories, practice and history of this discipline.

Social Studies

During my 15 years of classroom teaching, I have taught classes in Politics, Geography, Economics, History (American, Modern European, Global). For several years I tutored students preparing for the SAT tests in these subjects.
