About Catherine

Hey,

I am currently a substitute teacher and am working on my masters in Literacy Education. I have my Bachelors degree and am certified to teach Social Studies 7-12 in New York. I will try to connect with my students and make learning fun. I will try to use what you know and are interested in, to get you to understand the material. We will work together and try new approaches if something is not working. I want my students to feel comfortable and able to talk to me about their problems and what they are struggling with. I am a new teacher, but am dedicated and will do anything to try and help you succeed.

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 am currently enrolled in the Master's program at SUNY New Paltz studying Literacy Education 5-12. I will be graduating in May 2014. I am also currently in the process of extending my initial certification from Adolescent Education: Social Studies 7-12 to include grades 5-6. I tutor at the Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh for students in the Elementary grades in both English and Math.

Regents

I am a certified 7-12 History teacher. I received my BA from SUNY New Paltz. I currently tutor for the Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh for students who need help with English and Grammar. I also am working on my Masters in Literacy Education 5-12 at SUNY New Paltz.

SAT Reading

I have my BA from SUNY New Paltz in Adolescent Education with a concentration in History. I am currently working on my Master in Literacy Education 5-12 at SUNY New Paltz. Also, I tutor for the Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh. I am young and can connect with my students. I try to make things easy to understand for them. We would go through SAT practice tests and books in order to prepare the student for the test.

Social Studies

I am a certified Social Studies teacher in New York. I have a BA from SUNY New Paltz in Social Studies 7-12. I am currently working on my Master's in Literacy Education 5-12 at SUNY New Paltz. I tutor at the Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh and try to connect with my students. I try to make learning enjoyable and interesting.

Study Skills

I tutor at the Boys and Girls Club in Newburgh. I am also a certified teacher for high school students. I have found that students usually have problems with study skills and organization. When they learn some techniques to help them both study and stay organized the changes are usually reflected in their grades. With enough hard work and dedication any student can become an A student.
