About Cathy

Hello, I want to tell you about my past and my present in the hopes that you and yours might be part of my future. I have taught English classes over 12 years with grades 5-12 and ENG1010 through ENG2020 with college freshmen. Why so many you may be asking. Well, my husband has been a Special Forces soldier since 1990 and we have lived in the states of Washington, Tennessee, Arizona, Kentucky, and we most recently lived in Belgium where he served with NATO forces. My talents are getting those who are struggling to really learn a topic and to get those terrified of public speaking functioning and even thriving. I've also taught reading only classes, writing only, theater, business writing, literature, and several English classes for those struggling in all subjects.

My husband and I recently retired from the Army and have settled in Freeport, Florida. Due to his service at war for 18 years, he is a disabled veteran and I serve as his full-time caregiver. My passion is teaching and all things language and literature, so I am hoping to keep my skills fresh while caring for my veteran. Thank you for reading this far and I hope I might be able to help you meet whatever goals you are needing assistance with.

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.

Cathy is helping my daughter in AP Language Arts. She is better than my daughter's teacher at school. After two lessons my daughter seems much more confident.
