About Catherine

My tutoring experience ranges from grade school to college levels, up to and including Calculus II and College Physics. I've tutored at Penn State's Learning Center as well as students at home. My passion for education comes through in my teaching methods, as I believe that all students have the ability to learn a subject as long as it is presented to them in a way in which they are able to grasp. I use both analytical as well as graphical methods or a combination of the two as needed to cater to each student. Having both an Engineering and Architecture background, I am able to explain difficult concepts to either a left or right-brained student, verbally or with visual representations. I am also great at getting students excited about the subject they are learning by relating it to something relevant to them.

My passion about education led me to co-found a college coaching program in Philadelphia, which provided essay writing and college application coaching. Through this program, I have insight into the college application review process and can help a student discover their application theme/personal branding as well as construct thoughtful essay responses.

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.

Architecture

I have a Master's degree in Architecture and has practiced in the field for 4 years, mostly as an interior architect. I've tutored at Penn State's Learning Center as well as students at home.

AutoCAD

I use AutoCAD extensively as an architecture / interior design professional. I have been using it since engineering schooling in undergrad and have continued to use it in an architectural capacity at large architectural firms.

Very patient and devoted tutor

Catherine helps me very much with geometry. She is always patient with me, goes through step by step, and goes out of her way to make sure I completely understand my material. She is a phenomenal tutor I highly reccomend her.
