About Cathy

I've been teaching for 22 years! I started teaching on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. I subsequently taught English as a Foreign Language in Toyama, Japan for one year before returning to the States where I continued to teach ESL in middle and elementary schools in Washington before returning in 2008. I teach middle school language arts and geography, and I love it!

I love teaching and tutoring because learning is all about growing. The more you learn, the more doors open. That's really exciting!

As a language arts teacher, I'm used to using the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and adapting lessons so that they are fun, challenging, and connect to students' lives and interests.

I'm looking forward to meeting you.

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.

Reading

More about my reading expertise

As a reading teacher, I have guided my students to actively interact with their reading through graphic organizers, Post-it notes, and literature circle discussions. I've taught students from elementary through adult, individually as well as in large and small groups.
