About Catherine

I love to teach, and I love to learn. I look forward to passing that love to all of my students.

I teach in a public school in central Ohio, so I have experience with instruction using the Common Core curriculum. I understand the dynamics of your child being in a classroom and the busy life of teachers. As a result, I will be a good point of contact between the classroom teacher and families as needed.

I believe that education needs to emphasize learning how to learn. With the increase of technology, the world our children are growing up in is very different from previous generations. Facts can easily and quickly be looked up online, so they are not nearly as important as thinking skills and the application of learning. This generation will be successful by learning how to be problem solvers and creative thinkers.

I have spent my career teaching math in elementary and middle schools. I understand you child's frustration with math because I struggled with it as a child. Through some great teachers and perseverance, I have learned how much fun it can be.

I have experience with Writer's Workshop, grammar instructions, and creative ways to learn vocabulary.

As Ohio has gone through the process of adopting Common Core, I have become familiar with the standards through studying them myself, and using it in the classroom for five years. I am enthusiastic about the changes that Common Core is bringing about in the quality of an education. The Common Core curriculum is designed to teach our children how to live in the 21st century by teaching them to be problem solvers and creative thinkers.

I have taught K-6th for 20 years.

I am excited about sharing my love of learning with families. One on one tutoring can make a huge difference in you child's success in school. I am looking forward to being a part of that journey with you.
