About Cathryn

I am a certified English teacher for middle school and I look forward to expanding some of my time to tutor students that struggle with English and reading. I connect with my students to provide meaningful and creative lessons to improve their writing and reading skills. I am willing to assist with school assignments, create individual lessons based on student needs, and/or teach my original creative teaching curriculum.

Before tutoring begins, I will conference with the student and parent to set up expectations and needs.

I currently work as a full time teacher in a general education classroom in NEISD. This is my third year teaching. I have a Texas teaching certification for English, reading, social studies, ESL, and GT for grades 4-8. I have successfully worked with a wide variety of students with learning disabilities and I am able to adapt my instruction to meet their specific needs, abilities, and interests to make writing and reading interesting for them!

I am available to draft and proofread all types of essays and papers, teach engaging lessons for grammar and spelling, and improve testing skills.

Please contact me with your specific needs for your student and approximate time availabilities to set up a conference and tutoring! I look forward to meeting your students and being a part of a team to improve their learning 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.

STAAR

I have taught 7th grade English for the past three years and prepped all of my 160+ students each year for the Writing STAAR test. I have taught personal narrative and expository writing skills as well as revising and editing skills.
