Catherine Dempsey

Mathematics Mentor


I moved from Southern Illinois to work here at Quest Forward Academy. This is my first year as a math mentor and I am super excited about this amazing curriculum. Teaching and mentoring is something I am very passionate about and I hope to make great connections in the community and build strong foundations for learning here at QFA.

Roles at Quest Forward Academy

Mathematics Mentor, mainly Foundation Phase


I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Resource Geology and I have a Masters in Geology. I have worked with 4th and 5th graders as well as mentored those students in math. I tutored in college for students with special needs. I also taught dual-credit high school students in classes such as Weather and Climate and Geology.

Before Quest Forward Academy

Before I started as a math mentor, I worked at a college teaching physical science classes. These classes were a combination of high school students to seniors in college. I primarily worked as a teacher’s aide, science/math/general science tutor, and a teacher.
