Cathy continued to tutor students referred to her in the community while pursuing another career in the mental health field. She found that through one on one tutoring, children were able to grow their confidence and excel at school. Seven years passed, many students achieved academic success, and in 1998 Beyond the Classroom was established as the organization it is today.
