Hello! I'm Kathy. I have 20+ years of teaching and tutoring experience to help you be successful in all things reading and writing related. I work with college and high school students, as well as adults in corporate setting and elementary school students. I was the Coordinator of the Writing Center in my community college, where students come for tutoring help in reading and writing. You will not be disappointed - I know how to get the best out of my students and am an expert at my craft.
Right now, I teach in a community college, both in English 101 Composition and in remedial classes in which students are struggling with college-ready skills. In addition, I substitute teach in an elementary school because I love teaching students the foundational literacy skills they will need their whole lives, as I get the unique perspective of the foundation they will need to be successful in high school and college - not to mention I love the playfulness of young children.
I am certified in the State of NJ as a Teacher of English in grades N-12. I have an M.A. in English with a Concentration in Teaching of Writing and Rhetoric from Rutgers University, and graduated with High Honors. I was on the Dean's List every semester while at Rutgers and received many awards. I was a graduate assistant teaching undergraduate classes at Rutgers while obtaining my Master's degree. One of my specialities is grammar. What can I say? I love the nuances of language and the power it gives us to be understood. As Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter said, "Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it."
Please contact me so we can discuss your needs and how I can help you reach your goals. If you email me, I will get back to you within 24 hours for discussion and lesson-scheduling. Please note I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, which I kindly request my students observe, whenever possible.
Wonderful & Patient Tutor!
Kathy W. was wonderful. She responded to my inquiry right away and was very patient when I explained what we were looking for. In high school my son had an IEP for a learning disability and he and I both felt he needed some additional support specific to his writing assignments in college. I wanted him to have an accountability that exceeded the peer tutoring at his school and that was more accessible than the writing center appointments - and more consistent. After each session with my son, Kathy sent me an update as to what they worked on, what his responsibility was moving forward and when they would meet again. She went above and beyond helping him with brainstorming, outlining, drafting and ultimately editing. While they met in person, Kathy also helped virtually particularly when it came to the editing. It was no small task but she remained positive and encouraging. My son felt she was extremely helpful too. He did well in the classes Kathy helped him with. Kathy is a very caring person. When my son got sick part way during the semester she even offered to bring him something for his cold. I would highly recommend Kathy based on our experience. She is very qualified, professional, caring and reliable. She has excellent communication skills.Keelin, 10 lessons with Kathy
Very Experienced and Knowledgeable!
Kathy has been an amazing Writing Coach for my daughter who is currently in 9th grade. She is extremely knowledgeable and provides invaluable tips to facilitate the writing process. Kathy's expertise in writing has significantly improved the quality of my daughter's informative and argumentative essays which will be beneficial for FSA Writing and beyond. At the end of each session, Kathy always provides a detailed summary of each lesson to keep me abreast of my daughter's progress. If you are looking for someone who is patient and exceptionally skilled in writing, I highly recommend Kathy as a Writing Tutor/Coach.DeVonne , 11 lessons with Kathy

Kathy is a wonderful tutor - patient, experienced, engaging, insightful and very supportive. She is helping my high schooler improve his writing -- working with him through the various steps in the writer’s process from idea conceptualization, through drafting and editing, to final completion. Kathy is super responsive and tailors her approach to the needs of her students.Eric, 9 lessons with Kathy
