About Cathy

I recently retired in August 2020 after 33 years of teaching most recent in public school.  I have taught in the private sector as well. I have been an adjunct professor at Brandman University for 7 years, teaching educational courses.  I have been a mentor to new teachers for the past 5 years.  In September 2020, I opened my own tutoring business in Palm Desert, California. I have experience with all grades and have a great deal of experience tutoring students.

I earned my Master’s Degree in Reading and Language Arts at California State University at San Bernardino in 2005. I hold a GATE Certificate and was awarded Teacher of the Year.

I am centrally located in Palm Desert. My office is in a beautiful professional building.

I believe the “one on one” approach is the best way to get to a student. I try to make it enjoyable rather than a “grind”.  Students need a  strong support system these days and Educational Connections by Cathy Bray will give them exactly what students need.
