About Kathryn

I am certified by the states of Oklahoma and Texas to teach students with special needs. With a 20-plus year background in special education and adult learning I have had plenty of experience helping all types of learners find out what their core strengths are. My students and I custom-design instruction to ensure learning experiences are valuable, fun and have lasting value.

With an eye for what brings the greatest return on time and money invested, I also work closely with families to carry through on the momentum we build during tutoring. In addition to the increase in academic performance and understanding their core strengths, my students learn how to manage test stress, build bigger brains and zero in on their unique learning styles .

As a result, we are able to move through material at a much quicker rate with greater retention than is typically expected. The result? Learning becomes highly prized and school performance becomes much easier. My goal is to make our time together in tutoring sessions pay repeated dividends throughout each student's lifetime.

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.

Special Needs

I am certified by the states of Oklahoma and Texas to teach students with the following categories of special needs: autism, Asperger's syndrome, emotional disturbance, other health impaired, learning disabilities, mental handicaps, and traumatic brain injury. I have had the honor of teaching people with all of these special needs, as well as many with visual and hearing impairments and ADD/ADHD.
