Hello, I am Catherine! I am currently a High School Math teacher with 9 years experience. On top of that, I have almost 14 years experience tutoring all ages from elementary school through college. I have a BS in Mathematics from Georgia Southern University and a Minor in Spanish. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since I was a young child and I am passionate about helping kids know and love math.

Hello, I am Catherine! I am currently a High School Math teacher with 9 years experience. On top of that, I have almost 14 years experience tutoring all ages from elementary school through college. I have a BS in Mathematics from Georgia Southern University and a Minor in Spanish. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher since I was a young child and I am passionate about helping kids know and love math.
I am not tied to any one strategy of teaching--I think it is important to learn how each kids best learns and cater to their learning style, especially in a tutoring environment. I love when students have that "AHA" moment in math where it finally makes sense! It is my belief that anyone can learn math as long as they're willing to try and have a positive attitude! Anyone I tutor says that I am very patient with a calm disposition and that I explain things in a way they understand.
I believe that my extensive content knowledge and experience teaching help me explain math to students in a way that makes sense to them. I am also a firm believer in fundamentals, so I always make sure students have the right building blocks to be successful in their current math class.
In a classroom setting, I have taught Algebra 1, 2, 3, Geometry Pre-Calculus, College Algebra, AP Calculus, on-level Calculus, AP Statistics, AMDM, and on-level Statistics, so I am very familiar with all math curriculum.
I have a flexible schedule to meet in the evenings and on the weekend. I usually will meet at a library or Starbucks, but I am open to meeting at the student's house or other location upon request. Contact me to learn more about my teaching style and to schedule lessons!
