About Catherine

I taught 6th grade, all subjects, and discovered that my students excelled in Math, Social Studies, and Science because I loved teaching these subjects. I also discovered that when I attempted to teach practical application of these subjects, particularly Math, students appeared to learn and retain the information more easily. I enjoy learning new words, their meaning and how to use them in writing or speaking and because I make learning fun most of my students also enjoy learning new words and finding ways to use them in their everyday life.

As a 6th grade teacher, many of my students made great gains in their math scores on their achievement tests, particularly one girl who scored at the 9th grade level by the end of 6th grade. Another girl entered 6th grade with a D as her final grade in math from the year before. By the time she left my class at the end of 6th grade, she had an A in math and was confident in her new found skills!

I can travel to your home or an agreed upon location to tutor your child and can accommodate your family's schedule. I can also tutor online for those interested in this service. I hold myself to a high standard and therefore, I often ask for feedback and will never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

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 (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from a highly qualified university known for graduating skilled teachers. I taught sixth grade all subject for three years and my students excelled in Math, Health, Science and Social Studies. I have provided many hours of remediation in reading and vocabulary and have helped students maintain their knowledge over the summer breaks.

Handwriting

I taught handwriting as a 6th grade teacher who taught all subjects.

Phonics

As a young child, I learned to read using the phonics method. I also taught phonics to 6th grade students who were not reading at grade level. Additionally, I learned how to teach phonics in our reading methods class while studying to become an elementary education major in college.

Study Skills

I have been teaching College Success classes and College and Lifelong Learning at Northeast State Community College in Blountville, TN. These classes include lessons on time management and study skills. Many students have informed me that they have improved on their study habits as a result of taking this course.
