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!

Among the many professional achievements throughout her musical career, it is worth to highlight her brilliant performance as Cherubino in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (The Small Opera of San Diego, 2000), Lola, in Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana (2002 - 2003), Serafina, in Enrique Medina’s Serafina and Arcangela (Los Angeles Eutrepe’s Opera Company, 2003), Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel (New York at Lincoln Center National Dance institute 2010).
