Remedial Work/ Special Needs Students K-12
I am a retired special education teacher with 25 years in Jefferson Parish. My passion is working with the special needs student; however, I do work with regular education students that are struggling. I am patient and can spend hours working on the same skills--I simply back up and try a different approach. I have helped special education students achieve when others have given up on the student. I have work experience with the mild/moderate population, autistic, and emotionally disturbed...
I am a retired special education teacher with 25 years in Jefferson Parish. My passion is working with the special needs student; however, I do work with regular education students that are struggling. I am patient and can spend hours working on the same skills--I simply back up and try a different approach. I have helped special education students achieve when others have given up on the student. I have work experience with the mild/moderate population, autistic, and emotionally disturbed students.
I work one-on-one with the student on missing skills or weekly homework. I specialize in organizational skills, remedial reading, written language and remedial math skills. I feel students do better if they are on a schedule and know that I will help them with specific things during our time together.
I can come to your home only if adults are present. I also will meet older students in a public place.
Patient, Knowledgeable, and Easy to Work with Tutor
I reached out to Kathy to receive sewing lessons for my daughter and I. Kathy has been simply AMAZING in working with us and all of our needs. After teaching us how to thread and operate the machine, Kathy taught us how to make a beautiful cross body bag. We can't wait until our next session with Kathy and are excited about what we will make next! We would highly recommend Kathy for all of your sewing needs.Deborah, 4 lessons with Kathy
Very Patient Tutor
Kathy seems very patient as she gets to know my son and discovering where his learning deficiency lie. Andrew seems very comfortable with her gentle teacher demeanor. I have a high level of confidence that she will be able to help Andrew learn the skills he's been lacking to succeed in his various classes.Bridget , 4 lessons with Kathy

Prompt and professional
Kathy is accommodating and willing to tailor her lesson according to my son's needs. Needed math tutoring and was able to help him review for his test.Chris, 2 lessons with Kathy
Patient, supportive and effective
Kathy just started working with my daughter. Kathy is extremely patient and supportive which has resonated very well with my little girl, in fact in just a short time my daughter is finally making progress on multiplication.Wendy, 12 lessons with Kathy
Very Understanding and Cooperative
My son has been tutored by Kathy for months in an effort to obtain his GED. My son required a tutor who understood children with ADHD. Kathy understands his difficulties in learning and moves at a pace he can tolerate. She is patient, understanding, and cooperative. She works with him on meeting times and location. Very good tutor.Dayatra, 23 lessons with Kathy
This woman goes above and beyond!
Kathy has been great with 2 special students. They need a lot of patience and encouragement, and she has met that and more. She has shown more interest, given her personal time, and has been a great help for these 2 students. I appreciate all that she is doing.Jane, 49 lessons with Kathy
Thank you Kathy!!!
Kathy is a wonderful tutor. She is really helping my son a lot. Her teaching method is excellent. My son says he has learned so much ever since Kathy has been tutoring him. He has more confidence in himself. He is finally able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you Kathy!!!Vilma, 49 lessons with Kathy
Very patient and understanding
Kathy was great with our daughter. Our daughter had a meltdown and Kathy helped her work through it. I think this tutor/student relationship will be successful because of Kathy's calm demeanor and kindness. Thank you Kathy!Betty-Ann, 14 lessons with Kathy
