Bio

Teaching is my passion and I am fortunate in having been able to teach a variety of subjects to students with a wide variety of academic abilities and interests. I have taught students at many academic levels, from two year colleges to post-graduate programs. At Bryant and Stratton College, a two year school, I designed the curriculum and taught a course on ecology and contemporary environmental issues.

Teaching is my passion and I am fortunate in having been able to teach a variety of subjects to students with a wide variety of academic abilities and interests. I have taught students at many academic levels, from two year colleges to post-graduate programs. At Bryant and Stratton College, a two year school, I designed the curriculum and taught a course on ecology and contemporary environmental issues. At Rice University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill I taught undergraduate courses in laboratory biology and ecology. At George Mason University I taught ecology and the computer laboratory section of a course on multivariate statistics to students in the post-graduate program in Ecology and and Environmental Science and Policy. Finally, I have graded state mandated standardized tests in English, Math, and Biology.

I know my subject matters; I am patient; and I am able to adjust my approach to teaching to how the student learns and what the course is requiring. I look forward to being able to apply my knowledge and experience in one-on-one teaching situations.

Proofreading

No matter what field you work in, clearly and concisely conveying information and convincingly presenting your point of view is an essential skill for success. I have found good writing skills to be an asset in every job I have held. I have written and reviewed technical reports as well as shorter pieces to inform the general public. At a consulting firm at which a half-dozen scientists and engineers might be involved in a project, the project manager designated me as the "go to" individual for writing and or editing reports. As a teacher, I have always urged students to submit rough drafts of their assigned research papers to me for editing and advice prior to turning in the completed project. Their papers were significantly improved by my editing and students reported that it helped them with their overall writing skills.

All reviews enthusiasm

Knowledgeable and patient

Kathy is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor. She encouraged my daughter to ask questions and help her to understand biology. She was very flexible with timings for lessons.

Neelam, 5 lessons with Kathy

review emergency Management research paper

Kathy is very helpful and open to meeting around student availability. She also is responsive if there is a need to reschedule. I find her very helpful with working on paragraph sequence and picking out vocabulary that makes sentences better flow together.

Alex, 9 lessons with Kathy

Disappointed!

After having one session with Kathy and giving her a 5 star review, we book another session. She was a NO show! I called and text her the day before to confirm and several times the morning of to she was meeting with my daughter, NO RESPONSE! Very disappointed.
