About Kathy

Hello,

My name is Kathy and I have over 25 years of teaching experience in the middle school, high school and community college systems. In those 25 years I taught English at all grade levels and I taught mini courses of drama, reading, basic writing and grammar. At the community college level I worked with students who were deficient in their reading scores. After the class, students were able to pass an exit test which enabled them to successfully proceed with their regular college courses. All classes involved lecture, but I also developed materials to work with individual students at their particular levels. These materials came from everyday sources like phone books, catalogs, and business forms. One-on-one help gave students that extra push to master reading and English skills.

I have also done private tutoring for ACT and SAT English and reading. If students followed my instruction, they have improved their scores significantly. In these sessions students and I worked together to decide what they needed, and together we developed the strategy for successfully mastering the problem area.

I believe in getting right to work in a session to give students as much instruction as possible. Together we determine what a student needs and then we work on relevant materials to quickly improve grades or scores. I am patient, have a sense of humor, and have been told that I put students at ease. My goal is for all students to improve skills so they can be more successful.

I welcome your call.

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.

Photography

I have been a photographer for 30 years. My area of expertise is portraiture, but I have also photographed many weddings. I photograph children, families, pets and business professionals. I have had my own studio doing everything that is required to keep a business going.
