Kathy Kuhl equips and encourages parents to help children with learning challenges. She graduated from William and Mary, where she earned teaching certificates in secondary mathematics and English. She has taught junior high math, homeschooled her son for grades 4 to 12, taught courses for homeschooled teens, and given seminars for adults internationally.
Locally, she remains involved in homeschooling. She moderates a private online group for Northern Virginian homeschoolers with children with special needs. (Write for information.)
Apart from her work with parents of students with special needs, she is assistant administrator at CHESS – Centreville Homeschool Enrichment Support Services, which provides a la carte classes for homeschooled teens, but does not give chess lessons.
