Meet Kate Redmon

Hey, I'm Kate, the instructor behind Light & Salt. I've worked with struggling learners for the entirety of my educational career- first, teaching remedial and inclusion high school in my home state of Hawai'i, then tutoring adults with disabilities, then as an adult education instructor, and now as the founder of Light & Salt Learning. My dream: make high-quality GED math instruction accessible to every student.

How We Began

I was a private tutor for years, working out in the community. My students and I studied for the GED in McDonalds, the library, or Starbucks. The students' needs changed, the location changed, but one thing never changed- wherever I was strangers would approach me. Over and over, perfect strangers asked, "Are you a GED tutor? Can you help me?"

Sadly, most of those people who asked could not afford private tutoring. And I could only work with so many students for free. The need was so great and my time was so limited!

I wished I could clone myself.

Finally, I decided to put lessons up on YouTube so I could at least have SOMETHING to offer all those hopeful students. With that, Light & Salt Learning was born. In the decade since, we've grown from a few YouTube videos to a massive online community with a huge impact.
