About Catharine


Bio

I'm a graduate of West Virginia University with a Master's Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Education Administration. I am a certified teacher in West Virginia and teach a variety of subjects that fall under social studies such as history (all regions and time periods), economics, political science, sociology, and psychology. My age group that I'm certified for is 7-12, but I also work with college students.

I'm a graduate of West Virginia University with a Master's Degree in Education and a Master's Degree in Education Administration. I am a certified teacher in West Virginia and teach a variety of subjects that fall under social studies such as history (all regions and time periods), economics, political science, sociology, and psychology. My age group that I'm certified for is 7-12, but I also work with college students.

I have taught and worked with students from different backgrounds, abilities, and interests. I also have worked with many international students at WVU, teaching an orientation class and providing cultural counseling. Working with international students showed me how different students are and how their needs can be very different also. So, I have adopted a teaching style that varies for each student and subject. I prefer a more relaxed and informal student-teacher relationship. Each student needs to be individually evaluated for strengths, weaknesses, and interests. From there, I want to tailor sessions and lessons to fit that student. I like to explore new ways of learning. It's important to capture the student's interest and enthusiasm. I love helping students, nothing feels better than a student telling me that he/she got that "A" - it feels like I won the lottery.

Best of the Best

My daughter has been fortunate to work with several excellent Wyzant tutors over the years, but this semester we hit the jackpot! Catharine S. agreed to tutor my daughter to prepare her for several Praxis II exams for her Elementary Education certification. Catharine's teaching experience has definitely played a key role in her effectiveness, but it is all the "extra" preparation time that she does on her own time to find ways to present the information in the most effective manner for my daughter that takes her over the top! Catharine has used all the materials my daughter had purchased such as ebook study guides, flash cards, online tests and helped her get the maximum benefit from those study tools. The personal interest that Catharine has shown in my daughter's success has helped tremendously to increase my daughter's confidence in her ability to pass these tests. She still has several tests ahead of her, but I feel confident that as long as Catharine is her tutor that she will be successful. Catharine has the perfect blend of knowledge, empathy and humor that enables her to relate to her students in such an effective way. My daughter and I feel very lucky to have found her. I can not recommend her highly enough!
