Katon tutored biology for my daughter, who is a junior in high school. Over an 11-week period, he was not only able to explain abstract concepts in a memorable way, he developed a study plan to keep my daughter on track for the SAT biology test! Katon was on-time for every lesson and often stayed late if my daughter still had questions. With Katon's weekly tutoring, my daughter's completed the SAT biology test with confidence and improved her score by 110 points! We are so happy to have found an experienced, dedicated tutor such as Katon.

As a non-traditional returning college student I needed help getting back on track especially in the sciences arena (biology) and wanted to ensure I really understood the material and could be successful. I am so glad I found Katon on WyzAnt as not only do I comprehend the material so much better, he has inspired and made me passionate about it. He enhances and reinforces what I learn in class by challenging me, contributing his knowledge and perspective, providing and referencing excellent resources and materials in the lessons customized to my specific learning needs. He is very patient, intelligent, a great educator and an all-around amazing tutor!
"Wonderfully helpful "

I worked with Katon during my preparation for the GRE. He was wonderfully helpful, as well as knowledgeable about details of the examination. He provided me with guidance from scheduling my exam date to details about how each section is scored. Katon modeled our tutoring sessions after the Kaplan GRE preparation course. The Kaplan methods are excellent tools to save time and Katon really helped me through understanding these short cuts and executing them efficiently. He also provided me with numerous resources, an outline of each of the lessons, and homework that would help solidify my understanding of the material. I would absolutely recommend Katon if you are looking for someone to help you prepare for the GREs. He is patient, flexible, easily accessible and he really goes above and beyond to help!

I really enjoyed working with you Kirsten.
Good luck with all your academic endeavors and professional goals!
"Katon made a hit with my son!"
Debbie from Tempe, AZ on 8/14/12
My 17-year old son hates homework and hates to give up his free time to study, so I was leery about getting him a tutor. But Katon got him engaged right away and they worked together for nearly an entire hour. After the session my son said Katon was "cool" and wants to keep working with him. All I can say is, "Whew!" And, "Thank you, Katon for being genuine, connecting with my son and getting right to work."

I recently contracted with Katon K. as a computer skills improvement tutor for three, one-hour sessions and anticipate contracting with him for additional tutoring hours. On each scheduled session Katon arrived on time (Punctual). As a seasoned educator, he is very (Passionate) about teaching and (Patient) regarding the teacher and student relationship. Additionally, Katon is very (Personable). Katon possesses the computer tutoring skills that I specifically need.
In addition to being Punctual, Passionate, Patient and Personable, I found the Price for Katon's services to be very reasonable and well worth the hourly fee.

Katon is a very good tutor! He was able to help me understand the basics of biochemistry thoroughly and then simplified the complex details. On top of all of this, he was very resourceful. He gave me a lot of websites that could prove useful, personal notes, and worksheets. I enjoyed myself, too! I'm glad that I choose Katon as my tutor! If I need help in the future, I'll be looking for him again.

Katon does an excellent job explaining subject mater. More over, his excitement and enthusiasm about the subject inspired my son to want to discover more. Thanks, Katon.
