Hello, I'm Cathy! I am an elementary teacher with a Masters of Education and reading specialist certification. I have fifteen years teaching experience in both public schools and private tutoring. I love working one on one with students and helping students feel more confident in their learning.
I have a flexible schedule and am willing to work around individual schedules. I have been privately tutoring for the past 5 years and have found it very rewarding. Students communicate what they specifically need and we work together to achieve their personal goals. Hello, I'm Cathy!

Cathy has worked with my 6th grade son for close to a year now. He was in a below-level reading class and has now moved up to on-level. She not only works on reading with him but they do other English skills work which has improved his grammar, writing and sentence structure skills. She is wonderful with him and he truly enjoys working with her. Additionally, she is flexible when our schedule is difficult to manage. I would highly recommend Cathy!
Those were the words my 10 year old son used after Cathy left this evening: "I really like Mrs. C"! Cathy has a way of engaging kids so that they forget that they are working....not something easy to do with a 10 year old boy during the summer! To my son the tutoring sessions do not feel like work and that means he doesn't resent the time he is spending on improving his writing. I would highly recommend Cathy!
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.
My teaching career began in 2002 when I received my BSE from Cabrini. I immediately began teaching in grades K through 6. I worked as a daily substitute and held multiple long term positions as well.
I have extensive experience working with students who are struggling with English related subjects.
As a reading specialist I feel I can be of service to English language learners. I can teach basic skills to help acclimate them in the English speaking world.
Being certified as both an elementary teacher and a reading specialist allows mt to teach all the basics of phonics, grammar and reading based on my own education and the time I have spent with students.
I was a professional photographer before becoming a teacher. I have 15 years experience working a commercial photo studio.
I am a reading specialist with three years' experience in private tutoring along with teaching experience of over 10 years. I have my Master's degree as a reading specialist from Penn State.
