About Kathleen

I am a 2014 graduate of Manhattan College with a dual degree in History and Peace Studies. I have over 5 years of tutoring and mentoring experience at the grade school, college, and adult basic education level. As a student at Manhattan College, I was a Supplemental Instruction fellow and led peer based study groups to assist students with writing, study skills, and history.

After serving as a Supplemental Instruction tutor, I was later promoted to oversee the program. In this role, I supervised and mentored new tutors and assisted them with creating lesson plans, organizing tutoring sessions, and any other needs they may have. Additionally, in 2012, I worked at the Alternative House, a center for at risk youth, assisting with reading, writing, and math. In my most recent role, I taught workshops for men and women reentering the workforce. I assisted with resume writing, cover letter writing, and basic skills.

As a lover of history and writing, I would be thrilled to assist students at all levels hone their study skills, sharpen their writing, and develop sustainable study techniques that can be transferred to other courses. I am a people person and bring patience, kindness, and understanding to all tutoring sessions. I will not do the work for you or your child, rather I will work with them to ensure that they understand the issues they are facing and can solve them on their own in the future.



I have a Bachelors Degree in History and Peace Studies and have taken the following relevant courses: World History, American History, The History of Modern Africa, The History of Modern Japan, Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, The History of Modern Germany, Intro to the Study of History, Global Issues, Social Problems, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, Urban Environments, English.

I have won the following awards as a student: Joseph J. Gunn Medal, Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, The McGoldrick Medal for History, Morrison Swift Award, The Pope St. John XXIII Peace Studies Medal, The Harold E. Hazelton Humanities Medal, Kenneth Tietjen Memorial Scholarship (2012, 2013), Epsilon Sigma Pi Honor Society, Pen and Sword Honor Society, Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society, Anna Bendernagel History Scholarship, Egan Award Nominee for best paper (2011, 2012), James Patterson Scholarship winner for academic and leadership accomplishments, The George B. and Susan Kirsch Award, Dean’s Honors List (x8).

I would love to hear from you and answer any questions or concerns you may have. I have flexible availability, including evenings and weekends. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me to find out if my tutoring is the right fit for you.

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.

American History

I have a Bachelors Degree in History and Peace Studies and have taken American History.

Criminal Justice

As an undergraduate at Manhattan College studying History and Peace Studies, I participated in a Criminal Justice Ethics course in Rikers Island. During this course, I worked alongside 10 Rikers Island inmates to study the history of criminal justice, incarceration, and best practices. Additionally, in this role I served as a mentor and tutor when needed.

Upon graduation, I worked at the Campaign for the Fair Sentencing of Youth as an Outreach Coordinator. In this role, I learned about the practice of sentencing juveniles to life without parole, a practice unique to the United States. I worked alongside advocates, litigators, and educators to understand and raise awareness the criminal justice system.

In my most recent role as job search coach and case manager at Jersey City Employment and Training Program, I worked with individuals returning home from jail and prison and assisted them with finding employment. In addition to learning directly about issues of incarceration, I facilitated group workshops and assisted individuals with research, writing, resume building, and editing cover letters.

Social Studies

As a graduate of Manhattan College with a dual degree in History and Peace Studies, I have taken many different social science and social studies courses. As a Supplemental Instruction fellow, I led study groups in introductory history courses and focused my lessons on research, writing, identifying a thesis, and understanding the bigger themes of social studies. Additionally, while working at the Alternative House, a center for at risk youth, I tutored 4th-6th graders in math, reading, and social studies.
