About Kathy

I love Math! I teach at the community college and in a high school. I have taught math online, on TV and for SAT/ACT Prep classes. I enjoy seeing the "aha" moment in a student when he/she clearly understands a concept. To put it simply, I believe that Math is Fun! Teaching is an art, a gift, and a privilege. My experience is an asset to my teaching, as I have successfully taught teens and adults for more than 30 years. I love Math! I teach at the community college and in a high school.
