About Kathy

Hello! My name is Kathy and I love math and logic; so much that I majored in Math and Computer Science. I have over 20 years of professional experience in the Business and Technology realms and a over 15 months of being a Home School teacher to my high school son (currently in 10th grade). My son has excelled in his work being home schooled and according to the standardized tests he took (Seton Testing and Iowa Testing), he was scoring in 11th and 12th grade equivalents.

I enjoy helping others learn math and really, any subject! Some tell me that I should have been a teacher. I use various methods and examples to help my children understand their homework; trying to fit those examples into real life situations or problems or gearing them towards the interest of the student. I believe that learning should be fun while also understanding that some things may be hard to get or that you just don't like. I will take the time to understand how the student best learns before beginning to tutor him/her. Should you choose me as your tutor, I will work with you and your child to understand your tutoring goals, setting benchmarks/milestones to ensure success!

I am a Math and Computer Science Major and my first jobs out of college was programming. While programming bored me, you have use logic and basic math principles and more importantly, logic in order to program successfully. After spending 20 years in the professional business arena, managing a team of 17 employees and the program/project management, system development and infrastructure, process improvement, communications and quality assurance functions, I am qualified to tutor many of the subjects that fall in these functions. Whether you're trying to learn a new skill or improve your grades, please contact me so we can set the course to your success!

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary Math

I am a math and computer science graduate and I love math, including elementary math. I have over 19 years of professional experience in the technology and business fields.

Homeschool

I have been a home school teacher going on 17 months. I currently have taught the following to my son...Mathematics (Algebra, Algebra 2, Geometry), Science (Biology, Chemistry), Social Studies (Civics, US History), Reading, Language Arts, Spelling, and PE. I also have been a substitute teach for our school district for the last 4 months, teaching grades K - 12. I can provide guidance in structured lesson plans and record keeping, how to best measure the progress of your child and what tools to use. Regardless of the homeschool curriculum chosen, I can work with children on their studies, helping them improve just as a student attending public school.

Microsoft Access

I have over 15 years of developing and maintaining Access databases starting with Access version 97 through Access version 2016. I am well versed with table structures, building forms, queries and reports. Databases cover a range of complexity. Additionally, I supported Access when working for the local community college in their learning center; assisting students with their Access assignments.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have over 15 years of professional experience where I used Microsoft PowerPoint almost daily to create presentations on business initiatives that were presented to a diverse audience; including management levels and executives. Additionally, I have used Microsoft PowerPoint to create slides used to communicate details online on upcoming activities for my church.

Microsoft Project

I have over 10 years of program and project management experience, working at Lowe's. Inc. In my role of System Development Manager, I managed several initiatives while managing a 17 person team. I created plans within Microsoft Project, including integrating multiple plans; created reports and provided status updates. Some plans were very detailed and I used resource allocation to help set realistic completion dates.

Microsoft Publisher

I have over 4 years of using Microsoft Publisher. I currently use publisher to make flyers, newsletters, and general information sheets. I have also used Microsoft Publisher to update content that is then posted to our church's website.

Prealgebra

I am a math major and have over 15 years of professional experience. I currently homeschool my oldest son who is in the 10th grade.

Project Management

I have over 10 years of program and project management experience, working at Lowe's. Inc. In my role of System Development Manager, I managed several initiatives while managing a 17 person team. I created plans within Microsoft Project, including integrating multiple plans; created reports and provided status updates. Some plans were very detailed and I used resource allocation to help set realistic completion dates.

Volleyball

I have played volleyball since junior high and I was named All State in my junior and senior years of high school. I went on to play volleyball at NC State as well as playing in spring and summer leagues. Volleyball is my preferred sport and I work with my own children, teaching them the fundamentals of the game as well as working on their bump, set, and spike skills.

Punctual, paitient and knew her stuff. My son said that she was able to "make things click" which he had been struggling with for weeks. We will meet her again next week and hope to see the grade improve.
