About Kathy

I am a college instructor and a high-school teacher who specializes in AP Language an Composition, creative writing, expository writing, and digital technology. I have been teaching high school for ten years and have extensive tutoring experience. I came to love tutoring because it creates a one-on-one personal connection between student and teacher, allowing for more in-depth, customized learning experiences.

A resident of Germany for 20 years, I attended German schools, established friendships, and learned the customs an culture, all of which I build into my lessons.

I teach rhetoric, Advanced Placement English, and college writing and literature. A webmaster and network administrator, I left the computer field ten years ago to follow my true love: Literature. After graduating from Bard College with a Master's in 2006, I began teaching at the secondary level, and continue to teach at the college level. Common Core, SAT and ACT prep and coaching are part of my tutoring activities each year.

I use special strategies to teach the writing and editing of Common Core standardized tests, developed for after-school and in-class tutoring based on Institute for Writing and Thinking (Bard) techniques and NY state Regents principles.

Get in touch if you want help with your German, your writing, and all of the coursework that revolves around language, literature, and test-taking prep. Common Core? No problem. Grammar, spelling, speaking, poetry. Everything language.
