About Catherine

For 12 years, I’ve taught high school and college students math, science, economics, and test prep skills. Let me tell you a bit about my qualifications.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard College. I taught one summer at Harvard, worked as a financial analyst for the SEC, and went to England, where I earned a Master's degree (in Economics) from Oxford. In 2006, I returned to my hometown and taught math at an exclusive private high school. After wedding a successful litigator, I began tutoring full time.

Accordingly, I’ve now accumulated more than a decade’s experience instructing algebra I, geometry, algebra II, pre-calculus, and calculus students. I really prefer teaching advanced math topics. I teach economics as well, a subject in which I hold degrees from two of the world’s best schools. For twelve happy and fulfilling years, I’ve helped kids earn A’s in Chemistry and watched my pupils crush the math sections of the SAT and the ACT. I coach a limited number of high school seniors seeking to improve scores on AP tests and SAT subject exams and, from time to time, I help a college junior or senior master the LSAT, GMAT, or GRE.

My academic philosophy is based on logic, not emotion or intuition. I approach math, science, and economics from a traditional, rational perspective -- building up each student’s fundamental skills as I explain the core material. I never delve into touchy-feely New Age hocus pocus. Yet, my communicative approach is holistic, open, and personalized. I recognize that one size does NOT fit all; perhaps my greatest gift is the ability to find an effective, pleasant way to instruct each unique individual. I am very proud to report that my high school students, several of whom graduated as valedictorian or salutatorian, have gone on to enroll in America’s finest colleges and universities, including members of the Ivy League.

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.

Algebra 1

In addition to tutoring in Algebra I, I was an Algebra I teacher in one of the premiere San Antonio private schools. I'm currently in the middle of writing an Algebra I textbook.
