Kate Pece

Founder, Consultant & Tutor

I am an Atlanta native and certified teacher who began teaching in 2003. In 2014, I started my own business to focus my expertise on providing kids with one-on-one support that is tailored to each child’s unique needs. I specialize in all aspects of English language arts, executive function coaching, study skills development, as well as subject-specific tutoring in math and Spanish. Many of my clients have disorders that impact learning, and I enjoy helping kids strategize around their challenges. I hold a bachelor’s degree in English literature and a Master of Education in English 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

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. I am a graduate of Kennesaw State University with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. My methodology focuses around personalizing my lesson plans in order to tailor it to 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. This institution is devoted helping students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. The Academy adapts its curriculum to each student in order to help them achieve their fluency and spelling goals.   

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

Courtney Kilburn

Tutor

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.
