About

Do you need to catch up on schoolwork, improve grades, or prepare for a test?

I have been tutoring students since 2008, for thousands of hours of private sessions. I have coached students to perfect 800s on all sections of the SAT, and high 30s on the ACT.

I teach:

- SAT/ACT/GRE test prep

- Pre-algebra

- Algebra I/II

- Geometry

- Precalculus

- essay editing

I tailor my tutoring to the individual needs of each student. My students have attended public, private, charter, and home schools, and I have worked with students with many learning differences, including ADHD and dyslexia.

A testimonial:

"Thank you for your wonderful help with both of our children- Catherine improved her ACT test scores from a 19 to a 25; she received many great offers and chose University of Portland. With the scholarship she earned we are well below the cost of a state university. Marty did even better; going from a 17 to a 25- he has now been accepted to all 8 of his schools - and has received offers totaling over $80,000."

About me:

I have a BS in molecular bio from the UC Davis, and completed two years of graduate studies in environmental microbiology at UC Santa Barbara. After grad school, I discovered private tutoring was a great match for my skills. I truly enjoy working with students individually to help them surmount the many challenges school places in their paths.

I have been tutoring and teaching since 2008. I also tutored for the SUN after-school program in Portland, developed several classes for Saturday Academy, and teach SAT classes.

I am also an accomplished musician and songwriter (voice, various instruments) and I would love to work with more students who are studying music theory and voice!

I look forward to working with your student! Please contact me if you have any questions.

I truly enjoy working with students individually to help them surmount the many challenges school places in their paths.

Frequently asked questions

I like to assess a student's previous tests or assignments and discuss their goals. If we are working on test prep, I like to review content first to ensure that students understand the test material, and then we move on to testing strategies. 

I trained as a teacher during grad school and taught several classes. 

My typical rate is $60 an hour. I am happy to work with groups of students who would like to share that cost.

It helps to find someone with a lot of experience helping many different students. 

Students should think about their goals for tutoring. Would they like to improve their test scores or grades? Would they like a deeper understanding of a subject? What can they share about their learning style and what is the best way for them to retain information?
