About Cathy

I am a current 3rd grade teacher and love teaching elementary school. I just finished my 19th year of teaching. I have taught all grades K-3 in 6 different states. I enjoy teaching because I have an opportunity to make an impact in kids' lives and watch their growth.

In the past, I have had experience with both group and individual tutoring. I have helped kids that were struggling to work at grade level, those that wanted to keep learning over the summer, and some that just wanted to get ahead for the following school year. Tutoring allows me to form a relationship with individual students and help them be more successful in the classroom.

I have taught math to students in all grades K-3. I have had experience with several different math series such as Math Expressions, Every Day Math and most currently Envision Math. I am capable of individualizing student learning to meet each child's needs.

I have a passion for teaching reading. I love to see kids' confidence increase when reading starts to make sense and become easier. I also love reading myself so it is a perfect fit for me.

I have a varied background teaching all grades K-3 in a public school setting, charter school and within a tutoring situation. I am able to set specific goals to help kids make growth.

I have many years of experience teaching reading, in all grades K-3 and believe students need to be taught specific phonic skills in order to become a reader.

I look forward to meeting with your child to help him/her 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. 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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary education for the past 19 school years and held a teaching license in six different states. I have taught all grades K-3 in the public school setting, a charter school, and in a tutoring situation. I have been responsible for teaching all subject areas.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting in all grades K-3 for the past 19 years. I have used the Zaner-Bloser method and D'Nealian method. In addition, I have taught cursive.

Phonics

I have been teaching K-3 reading skills and strategies for the past 19 years. I have participated in specific phonics training and professional development. I am especially strong in teaching beginning reading skills involving phonics and phonemic awareness. I understand how to assess students' skills and plan for teaching.
