About Catherine

My passion for education started at a young age when I was routinely seen with my nose in a book. I returned to school last year for a Master's in Social Work and will be completing my degree this May.

I am currently an honors student in my graduate school program as well as a member of the Student Leadership Council. I graduated from the Honors Program in the Boston College School of Education in 2012 with a double major in Human Development and Psychology with a 3.6 GPA.

I have tutored since college as well as worked in a therapeutic school as a counselor. I have a passion for education and believe that everyone has the ability to succeed when given access to the proper tools.

I understand that school can be overwhelming and strive to find ways to provide scaffolding for students as we work through the lessons so they are challenged but never overwhelmed. I have experience working with all age groups. I have volunteered in preschools and was a lead preschool gymnastics teacher who focused on social emotional and physical development.

I have tutored in an elementary school after school program and was a Big Sister through Big Brothers Big Sisters for 4 years. I worked in a middle school classroom in a therapeutic summer program. Finally, I have taught health classes in high schools as well as working in a high school.

I have an ongoing love of Math. The thing about Math that is so great is that once someone can explain it clearly to you it all makes so much sense. I like to think of Math as a puzzle that always has an answer if you just look at it differently. I

I have learned many tricks from teachers and relatives over the years to make math more fun and would love to be able to pass them on. I have been a bookworm since a young age and am still an avid reader (granted, often, I am reading textbooks and journal articles these days). I know how to break down readings as well as how to get at themes and metaphors within them.

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.

Golf

I have played golf since freshman year of highschool. As a freshman I was on the Junior Varsity team and my sophomore and junior years I was the Captain. I have taken lessons with pros over the years and genuinely love the sport.
