"Hi there! You may call me Kathi or Mrs. W. I’m comfortable with either, and I want my students to be comfortable, too!

My education includes a Bachelor’s degree and two Master’s degrees. I’ve been teaching and tutoring for 30 years in traditional classroom settings, large lecture halls, and one-on-one. I enjoy working with students of all ages—kindergarten through college.

In addition to a BS and an MA with an emphasis in journalism, I hold an MLS or Master of Library Science.

And, of course, I encourage students (and caregivers) to ask questions, provide suggestions, and maintain an open dialogue about learning experiences in general. I believe learning at any age can be a fun and rewarding experience, even in subjects that students may find challenging. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.
