About Catherine

I started teaching after I graduated college. I taught English I, II, and ACT Prep/Learning Strategies for two years, and then taught seventh grade ELA for half a year. I love teaching, but tutoring and remediation is really where my heart is. I love coming up with creative solutions to help students internalize material, and I am proficient at combing through data to figure out the best possible way to meet the needs of my students.

My favorite part about tutoring is being a catalyst for learning to take control; I'm able to give students the confidence to change their mindset from "I can't" to "I can." The best moments of my teaching/tutoring career have been when students get that "a-ha!" moment. I love to see the lightbulb click!

I taught ACT Prep/Learning strategies and helped my students grow an average of 5 points in the Reading section and Grammar section. I am constantly building my knowledge of remediation strategies and am dedicated to finding the best solutions for my students.

I have taught Common Core curriculum for three years and am very competent in the standards. I also understand how each part of the curriculum builds on prior knowledge and how writing and reading go hand-in-hand. Due to my expertise in Common Core curriculum, I am able to build individualized lessons to help students internalize CC standards.

I am so excited to share my love of learning with you! Please contact me if you would like a fun, energetic, and passionate tutor. I would love to help you learn!
