I have been a professional tutor for five years in biology, math and French, and am currently an adjunct professor in Biology at Blue Ridge Community College, where I was recently recognized for excellence in teaching. I have a Master's in Biology from James Madison University, and another in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Biochemistry from SUNY Stony Brook. As a graduate student and now at Blue Ridge, I have gained a great deal of experience in clarifying the many difficult, and sometimes confusing, concepts inherent to biology.

I have also completed the necessary training in order to teach in public school in Virginia. However, I prefer to provide one-on-one tutoring and enrichment opportunities as these experiences are far more rewarding than k-12 classroom teaching.

In addition, I have a solid mathematical background, having taken courses including calculus, linear algebra, differential equations and discrete mathematics. I have had a lot of success helping students understand the complexities of statistics, algebra, calculus and trigonometry. I feel that the root of my success is my ability to respond to various different learning styles and interests. I love to teach, and find that teaching students one-on-one is the most rewarding since we go at the pace of the student and I do not move on from one topic until I feel that the student is comfortable with that topic.

I am a native speaker of French and love to provide lessons in that language, both conversational and writing. Learning a new language is both fun and challenging but, most importantly, it requires active practice, with which I am happy to help.

It works!

I see my sons grades improving! Catherine teaches foundation as well what he is currently working on in class! Understanding why helps a lot with anything you are doing. She is very professional and patient. Glad we made this decision!

Susan, 8 lessons with Catherine

Great tutor

Catherine worked diligently in explaining the necessary parts of the topics to the student. I would recommend her to someone who is having trouble with calculus.

Claire, 2 lessons with Catherine

Saved me in Calculus!

I went from getting an F on my first calculus test to receiving an overall grade of B- in the class! Very helpful, and I will be utilizing her services in the future.

Cole, 21 lessons with Catherine

Very Good

Hired Catherine for my daughter at JMU. My daughter instantly text me and told me she really liked Catherine and finally "understood" chemistry. She's looking forward to meeting with her again.
