Kate Pece

Learning Specialist & Founder

I am an Atlanta native and certified teacher who began teaching in 2003 in public and private schools in Fulton County. In 2014, I started my own business to focus my expertise on providing students with one-on-one support that is tailored to their unique needs. I specialize in executive function coaching, study skills development, and all aspects of middle and high school English language arts. I also provide subject-specific tutoring in social studies, science, Spanish, and math through algebra 1 and geometry.

Many of my clients have disorders that impact learning, and I enjoy teaching students how to strategize around their learning differences, including ADHD, executive function disorder, dyslexia, neurodevelopmental disorders, slow processing speed, anxiety, OCD, depression, and more. In addition, I draw on my experience as a former 504 Coordinator in Fulton County Schools to consult with parents about obtaining accommodations at school and on the SAT, ACT, and AP/IB exams. 

I hold a bachelor’s degree in English and a Master of Education from Georgia State University. 

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, going to trivia night with friends, and riding my motorcycle on twisty mountain roads. 

Jessica Cerverizzo

Tutor & Academic Coach

I am an educator focused on implementing highly effective instructional practices to improve student learning and academic performance while maintaining a fun and challenging learning environment. My methodology focuses around personalizing my lesson plans for each child.  This allows me to tune into their strengths and give them the tools to feel confident and drive success in areas that they struggle with. I am a member of the Academy of Orton-Gillingham, an institution devoted to helping students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties.   

I am a graduate of Kennesaw State University with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding horses, reading, and hiking with my dogs.

Courtney Kilburn

Tutor & Academic Coach

I am a growth-minded educator, focused on helping children develop a true love of learning. It is my passion to help each child grow, through research-based instruction tailored to meet his or her specific needs. I work with many students who have disorders that directly impact their learning, and I aid them in developing the skills and strategies needed to overcome these challenges. My approach to teaching is hands-on and multi-sensory, starting from very concrete concepts and moving to more abstract concepts when the child is ready.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University, and I specialize in K-5 reading, writing, and math.

In my spare time, I love to read, bake, and cross-stitch.

Andrew Bopp

Tutor & Academic Coach

I’m an educator who views teaching like solving a puzzle.  How do I get the knowledge in my head into theirs?  Each of my students has their own unique set of strengths and weaknesses.  They are each a different puzzle to solve, and I love solving puzzles! The foundation of my teaching style is patience and positivity.  Any student can learn advanced math and science if they are taught in this way.  It’s a formula that has worked well for me and my students, including those with learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, and Asperger’s. I teach a AP Physics and a variety of math subjects from PreAlgebra up to AP Calculus (AB).

I hold a BS, MS, and PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the Georgia Instiute of Technology.

In my spare time, I enjoy video games, reading, jogging, watching sports, and playing with my chocolate lab, Leia.
