About Kathy

***I only tutor in the Kerhonkson, Napanoch, Ellenville, Wawarsing, NY areas. I do not travel outside of this radius, so if you do not live in the area or are not willing to travel to these areas, I would not be a good fit for you or your child's tutoring needs.***

AREA OF EXPERTISE: GRADES 7-12

I have a Master's degree from Columbia University Teachers College and a degree in English from Queens University of Charlotte. With over fifteen years of experience tutoring and teaching English and a top-ranked educational background from Columbia University, I know that I can provide quality tutoring services and help your student succeed! I am passionate about literacy and excellent communication.

I love teaching and always will.

Even if English isn't a strong subject for your student, he or she will begin to see the subject differently. Consequently, he or she will earn higher grades!

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.
