Introduction: I have been tutoring test prep for over ten years , with twenty years of tutoring experience. My work stands out as I am able to draw from my vast experience teaching/tutoring students, and tailoring test prep and academic tutoring to the student's individual learning style. I am experienced with utilizing differentiated instruction. I am extremely excited to share that 99% of my students have gained at least 200 points after tutoring! For the ACT the results are also remarkable- with gains of 3-4 points on average! I have designed my own strategies for the Science section on the ACT and the Reading and Writing/Language sections for both the ACT and the SAT. One of my students went up two points on the Science section of the ACT after only one hour of tutoring! Teaching and tutoring are my passion! I offer a free consultation to my clients and tutor most academic subjects grades seven through college level. I thoroughly enjoy working with adolescents and college students and seeing their growth and success! Recently, I have added a new tool to my academic tool box. This tool will be enormously helpful for most students and especially geared towards students with learning disabilities from middle school through college level.

I’ve worked with Kathie for years! I still use her to this day as a Jr. in college. She is amazing to work with and makes everything super easy to understand! As someone with a learning disability she has been nothing but an excellent resource. Her eagerness to work with me makes it exciting every time I get to work with her. She is able to break down and deconstruct anything and is able to reconstruct it to be more understanding. She is great! Work with her if ever get the chance!

Kathie was great to work with. She was very professional and was very flexible with working out a schedule with us. My daughter enjoyed her sessions and Kathie made them engaging. She checked in with both my daughter and myself in between tutoring session to see how she was doing and if there was anything she need to work on specifically at her next session. She tutoedr her for SAT's and her score increased greatly! We asked Kathie to stay on and Tutor her for ACT's as well. We do not have results back yet but I will update. Kathie was a pleasure to work with she didn't just tutor my daughter she got to know her. My daughter enjoyed going to her sessions and she said she felt it really helped her prepare and feel comfortable the day of the test.

Kathie was wonderful with my daughter. We only had a short time to work together before my daughter had to take her ACT and because of Kathie my daughter felt prepared. Will absolutely use her again for my other daughter!

Kathie was professional, on time, wasn't a clock watcher and kept in touch through email with my daughter throughout the week if she had something to send her outside of the tutoring session. She kept my daughter engaged and I would use her again. I don't know the results yet of her SAT's but I will follow up.

Kathie was very knowledgable and very responsible. My daughter met with her regularly and we really appreciated Kathie's patience, ability to teach and test taking tips.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My process is to have a telephone interview to ask specific questions about the student. If we feel we are a good match, I create a personalized plan.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I read constantly. Always staying abreast of trends in education, and using technology to assist students' learning.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    My Mom was a professional dancer, teacher, and a choreographer. As a young adult I began teaching dance to beginner students. This teaching evolved to academic subjects and the story continues!
