Bio

I'm Cathy D. and I am currently finishing up a 26 year tenure with my dream job. I graduated from Michigan Technological University with a degree in Metallurgical Engineering. Jobs were scarce in my field after graduation, and I soon got a job as a math teacher.

I'm Cathy D. and I am currently finishing up a 26 year tenure with my dream job. I graduated from Michigan Technological University with a degree in Metallurgical Engineering. Jobs were scarce in my field after graduation, and I soon got a job as a math teacher. I was able to step down from that job so that I could have the privilege of raising my nine children, and home educating them. I was able to teach all of them from kindergarten through 12th grade. In the process of teaching my own children, I found that I had a passion and talent for explaining math facts to people of all ages.

As my home schooling days are coming to a close, I decided to pursue a second career as a high school math teacher. I have spent the last two years substitute teaching in the local public schools and am currently pursuing the career switcher program here in Virginia so that I can receive my teaching certificate. Through subbing in the schools, I found that I truly enjoyed working with high schoolers and helping them understand math concepts better.

My main philosophy is not that I am teaching math, but that I am teaching a person. My job is to communicate the math that I know in a way that the individual student will understand it and can apply it. I particularly enjoy teaching students who are not thrilled with math, and helping them to understand it. I really like to explain math in terms that will give someone confidence that they too can be successful in math.

I would love to talk to you about tutoring. I offer a complimentary initial consultation. I prefer to tutor at a public place (library, coffee shop, restaurant). If you cannot make a tutoring session, I ask that you give me at least six hours notice.
