Regents

I am a certified NYS teacher in Social Studies grades 7-12. I have been tutoring in the area for 10 or more years. I have taught Social Studies grades 6-8. I believe in using many modalities to teach subject matter as we don't all learn the same way. Some of us absorb information better visually than by the written word. Some of us would rather listen to information than read it. I have just recently graduated from Dowling College with a master's in special education. I am very excited about continuing my education and being able help others to learn. For these reasons I think that I can help individuals prepare for the Global Studies Regents and the US History Regents.

Very Patient

Catherine has only had one session with my Son. Within that short period of time she was able to notice his difficulties to figure a strategy to help. Very good instructor.

Donald, 3 lessons with Catherine

Not what I expected

My daughter has taken the global regents 3 times in the past and hasn't had luck in passing this exam, so I decided to reach out for a tutor. Searching the reviews, I came across Catherine K., who I thought met all the guidelines for teaching her this subject. I started 2 months in advance meeting once a week for an hour maybe two. I feel that Catherine should have informed me earlier that my daughter was struggling with the vocabulary words, not to be told after she failed the exam. This should have been spoken about earlier, so I have to say that I was disappointed for the lack of communication and also for the very low grade my daughter received on the exam. The first grade was a 60 and the second was a 58. She got a 53 with Catherine K. being her tutor. She is now working with her school and seeking the help she needs to pass this regents exam.

ACT, Catherine

Catherine was a nice person. My son did not feel he got a lot out of the tutoring session that he could not have accomplished on his own.

Michelle, 1 lesson with Catherine

A pleasure to work with!!

Catherine was a very understanding and has the patience to understand the matter at hand. She helped my daughter prepare for the SATs. She worked around my daughter's tough scheduling which was important to me. She was very flexible and easy to get in touch with. I highly recommend Catherine for tutoring needs!

Eleanor, 9 lessons with Catherine

A skilled professional

Cathy is very pleasant, she has a veteran's capability and skill that got right down to the matter at hand. I can appreciate how quickly she understood the problem with my 2nd grade struggling reader. She also was able to give me suggestions as to what I should try to follow up with helping my daughter.
