About Me

I have taught every summer during my time as an undergraduate at the University of Pittsburgh. Most recently as a graduate, I have been involved with the Western Pennsylvania Writing Project through the Young Writers Institute where I teach creative writing at the Cathedral of Learning in Pittsburgh. As an instructor of writing, my primary goal is to motivate students to uncover the benefits and the value of the practice. I believe every student is able to be inspired by the act of writing and literature. As with most skills, practicing is a large component in helping students achieve comfort when writing and sharing what they've wrote. The habit of writing, whether it be fiction or nonfiction, is highly beneficial to constructing a sense of self and confidence for the student. I have updated teaching clearances. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you and happy writing!

ESL, Spanish

About Me

With more than ten years of tutoring experience in both ESL/TOEFL and Spanish, I have a true passion for engaging my students in language. I'm a certified language teacher. Having issues with grammar, vocabulary, or pronunciation? Let me put you on the path to success! I prefer one-on-one tutoring. Unlike in a classroom setting, I can address your difficulties directly. With personalized attention, your confidence will soar!

In college, I worked as a ESL/TOEFL tutor and assisted in the development of a TOEFL library at a local university. I also taught ESL/TOEFL summer courses at a private university on Long Island. My students were from Korea, Japan, China, Turkey and Spain.

I have taught Spanish for more than ten years. I have a BA in Hispanic Languages and Literatures, and an MSEd. in Foreign Language Education. I am a tenured, certified teacher of Spanish with more than 10 years of teaching experience in all levels of the language. Are you having difficulty with grammar and pronunciation? Let me help you! I have helped countless students improve their pronunciation, answered their grammar questions, and increased their vocabulary.

Moreover, if you are a native speaker of Spanish who would like to improve your English, I am able to explain grammar rules in your native language and provide you with examples.

Let's chat and work together to reach your goals!

About Me

Hi, my name is Cathy. I've been teaching English and other liberal arts subjects since I was a Senior in High School - a long time ago! Over the years, I have taught various subjects that did not involve advanced Science or Math, but I have always concentrated my teaching areas to writing and critical reading. I love instilling the love of reading to young students. I also teach study habits, spelling, and test taking techniques. I used to teach SAT and PSAT prep courses, as well as other standardized tests such as GRE and GMAT a lot (Reading Section only), but lately I have been focusing on teaching reading, critical reading (also called reading comprehension) and writing. I teach all ages, from preschool to adults. I do, however, have a personal policy that if the student is of the opposite gender and is over 17 years of age, that we study at a public place such as the local library or a coffee shop. This is for my personal safety and also to avoid any appearance of impropriety :)

I have a business degree and law degree for academic background, and also business experience both as an owner and an employee. I have taught Native English speaking adult students who are illiterate how to read and write, as well as young and adult students whose primary language is not English. I can teach ESL, accent reduction, as well as the American manners, culture, custom, etc., acting as your life coach. Please feel free to review my profile if you are on LinkedIn. Look up Cathy K. under Individual & Family Services, in the Greater Pittsburgh Area. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, and best wishes and happy reading/writing to everyone!
