About Cate

I am currently a teacher of biology and forensics. I have taught high school biology, anatomy and forensics for twenty years. I am certified to teach biology and chemistry in Massachusetts. I have a degree in Spanish and can tutor in Spanish as well. My Bachelor's degrees in biochemistry and Spanish are from the University of New Hampshire and I have a Masters degree in Education from Northeastern University. Before teaching I worked in a genetics lab at Harvard University and I have worked summers in research laboratories several times over the last twenty years.
In my classroom I have lots of experience working with students with various learning disabilities including executive function difficulty, ADHD, memory and reading issues. I have also had several English Language Learners in my classroom and have experience working with ELL students with many different native languages.

I have many years experience in classroom teaching and tutoring my own students who have a wide array of different learning difficulties.

I have a degree in Spanish and have used the language regularly over the years for student and parent contact as well as travel.

I always have student with ADD/ADHD in my classroom and so I have a lot of experience with helping them to strategize student techniques to maximize their focus and concentration.

Please feel free to contact me to determine if I might be a good match to help you with your learning issues. I became a teacher after I realized through a tutoring job that I love to help students learn. Working one on one with a student is very rewarding.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have been a classroom teacher since 1991 at the high school level. I always have students with ADD/ADHD in my classroom. Through years of tutoring these students after school and hours of teacher professional development in helping students with executive function issues I have become skilled at helping these students strategize to become effective learners given their learning issues.
