About Cathy

I am an experienced teacher and mentor with an aptitude for working with special needs students. Ph.D. in Geography with specialties in historical geography, water resources, human-environment interactions, mountain geography, and the North American West. My experience includes college teaching, classroom instruction, and outdoor education. Mentoring, supervising, and assisting students with individualized projects is a forte. A full resume including work experience and lists of publications and presentations is available upon request.

My approach to tutoring emphasizes the student as an individual and as a learner with unique capacities, abilities, and interests (not just problems). Building on their strengths is the essence of the process, and helping them become enthusiastic about their studies and the learning process is the aim. Fostering a lifelong love of learning is what I seek to do.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I hold a Ph.D. in geography from the University of British Columbia, a Master's in geography from the University of Colorado, and a B.A. in psychology from Colby College in Waterville, Maine. As a college professor I specialized in teaching special needs students, including learning disabled students and students diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, and worked closely with the disabled student services offices at all the places I taught. Working with special needs students is a particular interest of mine and and area of true strength.

Sociology

College education included over 18 credits in sociology, including courses on social stratification, the sociology of the family, small group sociology, and social theory. As a graduate student the study of social theory continued, this time in the context of social and geographical change and transformation.
