About this tutor

I stand out as a tutor because my students enjoy their sessions. After each class, I ask the student if it was tedious or inspiring. Fortunately, my students find the path to success a relief from the grind of academics.

I am not only a teacher; I am an accomplished writer, coach and entrepreneur. I was selected to be a member of the graduate program in Communications at UC Berkeley. I have tutored English for over a decade. Owner of a fifteen employee regional communications firm, I worked with such accounts as Twentieth Century Fox, Gatorade and Cleveland Clinic. Through tenacity and great staff, I sold the firm for a healthy profit. I am an English teacher, a certified college counselor, ESL teacher, and life coach.

I know a cliche, but I am passionate about teaching because I learn from my students every day.

I enjoy most the self-confidence that my students have when they complete their tutoring sessions.

    I was struggling in college with writing. I had the answers but I could not put them into words. I would get a panic attack. Miss Cathy taught me how to write in a easy way. She also helped me give speeches. Now I use her all the time with my college assignments.

    I worked with Cathy for over a year. She taught me to speak and write English. She was so patient with me and made me laugh. Mostly she taught me not to be afraid. I still get a little nervous but I no longer hide so I can avoid speaking English. We are working on my grammar but she is patient. I give her a 10 plus.

    Cathy works with me on my grammar. I am a highschool student who is struggling with writing essays. She was able to show me how to put my thoughts on paper and organize them. We then put together essays and I was able to get As and Bs. I always had fun with Cathy


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First I have a complimentary "get acquainted session". We talk about personal, professional/academic goals and interests. Also discussed is the objective of the tutoring and if I am the right fit.

I then submit a work plan for the students approval. We follow the plan throughout the sessions and it stands as a barometer for our progress.

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

I was accepted into the esteemed UC Berkeley graduate program in writing and communications. I have worked for a decade as a tutor and am certified as an English teacher. I also hold certifications as follows: ESL teacher, Proofreader/Copy Editor, Resume Writer, and Spelling/Writing teacher.

I held a senior level position as the Marketing Director of a 1500 bed trauma hospital and owned a successful regional communications firm.
