About Catherine

I am very good at helping people fit together the pieces of knowledge to make sense of the world, pass exams, understand subjects and expand their mastery of the world and themselves. My undergraduate degree is from a top college in the subject of English; I understand literature, having read the most of the classics and analyzed them and written extensive research works on them and on their themes. My command of grammar and the principals of rhetoric and language are unparalleled and I also have wide experience in the principles of putting together a well-written research paper.

While English literature and grammar are my specialties, I also have wide experience and knowledge in history, basic mathematics, logic, and I currently make my living in Web usability, so I have substantial knowledge in those fields as well; all of which I have tutored others in.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Macintosh

I have been using and maintaining Macintosh computers since 1984. I am a technically skilled early adopter and especially familiar with their laptops, desktops, and tablets. My undergraduate degree is from a top college in the subject of English; I understand literature, having read the most of the classics and analyzed them and written extensive research works on them and on their themes.

Study Skills

I have worked with students from elementary school through graduate school on study skills. I work on note-taking, memorization methodology, problem analysis and repetition. I work with individuals' differing learning styles to master subjects by using skills they feel strong in. I believe that each student can master appropriate subject material and my goal is to ensure that each of them has the tools, information, and skills to confidently approach their current learning as well as learning in the future.
