About Catherine

As a classroom teacher for twelve years, I bring a wealth of experience to each moment of tutoring. I understand the learning process and know how to reach the learning style individual students. I believe that each student is smart and wants to learn; my job is to activate their fire. As William Butler Yeats said, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire". Too often, students are left to flounder in the regular classroom because their learning style is a little different than other students. When one takes that student and restores in them their love of learning, and provides meaningful and authentic learning situations for them - then the student will begin to really prosper.

My joy is to see each student succeed!

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.
