About Cathy


Bio

I am an experienced middle school math teacher with certifications in both Early Childhood and Secondary Mathematics. I am also certified to teach in both New York and Connecticut. I have seen first hand what happens when we depend on digital learning to help build foundations in student learning in math. This is not a one size fits all outcome. Nothing can substitute the connection that a dynamic and personalized student-teacher relationship can provide, even in the present environment.

I am an experienced middle school math teacher with certifications in both Early Childhood and Secondary Mathematics. I am also certified to teach in both New York and Connecticut. I have seen first hand what happens when we depend on digital learning to help build foundations in student learning in math. This is not a one size fits all outcome. Nothing can substitute the connection that a dynamic and personalized student-teacher relationship can provide, even in the present environment.
I have several clients who are supplementing their child this summer with fun. age-appropriate learning activities. I have developed STEM-related math lessons to help fill the gaps left behind in this current learning environment. The outcomes proven so far for my elementary and middle school students are undeniable.
I also can provide individualized instruction in Algebra, Trigonometry, and Geometry, TACHS, ACT, SAT and NY State Regents tests, all at reasonable rates.

Contact me so we can discuss your child. I will meet with your child to provide an initial consultation and discuss an individualized plan to best meet your child's needs.

Study Skills

Having tutored now for 4 years, providing students with stronger study habits is essential to my success. Providing students with structure and methods to organize and retain information is key to increasing ones study habits. With every student I give them a binder and folder which contains only work that we do. I show them how to set up a study guide for our work, one that works with their learning style. My hope is that this can be used by them for their own work in school.

I have been teaching classes and preparing students for the TACHS exam for the last 3 years. My experience with tutoring students for general education and other specialized tests only further qualifies me for teaching for this test. I look toward to sharing these skills with other students.

Regents

I have been tutoring several students to reach their maximum potential in many standardized tests. Most recently I am working with 2 other students specifically for the June 2013 geometry regents, so my experience is specialized and current. Having tutored for the Regents, Tachs and SAT tests for the Math subjects over the past 3 years, my success has spoken for itself. I have many students that have continued to use me for consecutive years for numerous subjects.

Great tutor

My daughter and Cathy B. connected immediately and worked hard. She was going to fail geometry and Cathy got her over the hump in four sessions. She passed her Regents Geometry and is very happy. Thanks, Cathy for giving my daughter her Summer back!
