About Kathryn

I have extensive experience preparing students for the SAT and Praxis exams in the state of NJ.

I am also a certified elementary teacher in the state of New Jersey and have a "Highly Qualified" status in the area of teaching middle school mathematics. I have a passion for teaching, a great deal of patience, and good sense of humor. I am flexible and have extensive training and practice on addressing the individual needs of all learners. I am a "geek" in the best sense of the word. I love technology and am proficient in Microsoft Office Suite and have tutored many children and adults in the use of PowerPoint, Word, and Excel. I am proficient in many PC and Mac programs. I have tutored high school students in Algebra I and Geometry as well as assisting many in obtaining their GED.

I was a teacher of Elementary Education in a local school system for 11 years and can provide many letters of recommendation upon request. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you or your child succeed in the area of need!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I was an elementary school teacher for ten plus years. In that time I was responsible for preparing and implementing lesson plans taking into consideration the learning styles and needs of all students. I found great success with teaching organization and study skills and the students enjoyed the incorporation of technology in lessons. I have taught third through fifth grades and was fortunate to be a basic skills math teacher for children in grades 1-5.

Macintosh

I have been using a Mac for over 10 years. I am familiar with, and have used, countless Macintosh programs in the classroom. Most recently, I have incorporated the iPad in my lessons.

Praxis

I received a Praxis score in the 90th percentile, as well as a passing score on the middle school math Praxis. Both scores are on file with the Jackson Township Board of Education, as well as with E.T.S.

Study Skills

As a fourth grade elementary teacher, teaching study skills was an important part of the curriculum. My motto was and remains "organization and preparation are the key to success".

It has been my experience that study skills encompass note-taking, time management, choosing an appropriate study environment, and use of mnemonic devices to name just a few

I have found that when a student practices and successfully utilizes study skills he/she takes ownership in their own learning process.

Kathryn is very patient and knowledgeable.

Kathryn is a great tutor! She was early for our first session and was very thorough in working with the material. She requested details regarding the math assignments ahead of time, and was very prepared for the lesson. She had a good rapport with my child, and she was able to assist in working through the problems in a timely manner. She was able to explain things in a manner that was easily
