About Kathleen

I teach at Forest Hills High School in Queens. I am currently teaching three sections of Common Core Algebra 1 and three sections Algebra 2/Trigonometry.

I am also very familiar with the Geometry curriculum. Before working at Forest Hills, I worked at Great Neck South High School in their Study Center.

In the Study Center, I provided one on one tutoring or small group instruction to struggling students in Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2/Trigonometry. Also before Regents, I held regents review classes for common core Algebra. I also coach lacrosse at Great Neck South High School.

When it comes to tutoring outside of school, I prefer to tutor at a library in the students town because I believe if they are in their own home they have so many distractions nearby compared to being in a library where there are little distractions. For regents or general tutoring, I start with having the student complete a regents with no help.

I then analyze their results and create lessons geared to what they need the most help on. We will repeatedly view past regent exams to familiarize with the lingo and questions that could be asked. I know mathematics can be seen as the hated topic, so I will show you creative ways to help make the material simpler. Math was not always my favorite subject and I survived, so with my help, you can too.

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.

Lacrosse

I started playing lacrosse in 2nd grade and have been playing ever since. For the past six years, I have worked at a lacrosse camp during the summer. I also am the assistant varsity coach at the school I currently work at.

Soccer

I started playing soccer when I was around 5. I played soccer in middle school as well as four years in high school. I worked for a camp in the summer when I was younger where I had to keep the kids occupied athletically and soccer was also a favorite to play.

Swimming

During the summer, I was on a swim team for my town. We would compete with other pools from my town in the different types of strokes.

Genuine interest

She does a good job fostering growth by analyzing the topic and presenting an easy to understand approach to solve similar problems independently. Very personable and most of all my son feels comfortable working with her.
