Kathryn’s qualifications in specific subjects below.
I've been doing algebra 1 for what seems to be forever; I was interested in it when I was a kid, so when I was still in elementary school, my dad taught me how to factor and expand (foil). When I finally got to Algebra 1 in school, I passed easily, helping everyone else in my group to understand the concepts that I had known for years. I still love doing Algebra, and if you need help with it, I would LOVE to help you. It's OK, my boyfriend who is in calculus had to have me help him with factoring too.
Ever since I was little, I have been an Anatomy geek. I got my parents to buy me the books, and I took classes meant for teenagers at ASU when I was in Elementary school. If you want some help, feel free to ask me. :) And as always, worry-free, stress-free, Katie D.
I love science, I always have, and if I can bring that love of science to someone else by helping them to understand the concepts of science, I would be honored. Science!
I have done so much college research, and I have learned so much through my own experiences, but I know how frightening figuring out those first few college classes can be, I'm here to help. I do not feel qualified to help anyone at a level above their Associates, however, if you have questions about the first two years, I can help.
English and proofreading are two of my strong suits; I have helped other students with both of these areas and am willing to help you too. I will help you understand English in a friendly, no-stress, mistakes-okay environment where I assure you that you will learn a lot.
I loved Geometry in high school. At first, like many students, I was confused by all of the different angles and numbers, however, I soon found my niche and from there it was smooth sailing. One of the things that I took pride in that year was being able to help my fellow students who were having trouble in Geometry. Between my love of the subject, and already helping other students learn how to do it well, I know that I can be the right tutor for you. If you want an easy going, stress-free, mistakes-okay environment to learn Geometry in, then I am the tutor for you.
Grammar, like vocabulary, English, and proofreading, is a very important part of successfully communicating your ideas. If you want to learn more about Grammar in a friendly, no-stress, mistakes-okay environment, then I am the one you should contact.
Most of my English classes have been in classic literature; this along with critical reading skills allows me the optimal skill set in order to help others figure out the true meaning of the work. If you want a stress-free, mistakes-okay, easy going environment to learn about literature, then I am the tutor for you.
Microsoft Powerpoint is one of the most widely used programs in this millennium; it is more widely used that even Microsoft Word, and just like in Microsoft Word, if you want to learn the basics in a no-stress, easy going, mistakes-okay environment, I'm the person that you want to come to.
I use Microsoft Word, and I have been helping older students (as well as my parents) with learning how to do the formatting. If you are looking for learning all of the formatting and editing basics of Microsoft Word in a friendly, easy-going, mistakes-okay environment, I'm the person you should come to.
Philosophy is about one of two things: memorizing facts about philosophers of the past, or about being able to understand why each of these philosophers thought the way that he did. I cannot teach you to memorize straight facts, but I can help you understand why they think the way that they do.
I tutored Pre-Algebra for a year and a half, I know how to explain it to people who have problems with math. I can make it fun for you, if you give me a chance.
Probability was something that always interested me. I am a very visual person, and I like to feel and see my probabilities; for doing the certification test without pencil and paper, I am amazed that I scored so well. I aim to help people understand probabilities in such a way that they can understand and feel probabilities the same way that I do.
I proofread papers for my college English classes to the point that even the sloppiest students that I have worked with have gotten "A"s. If you want to get a better score on your paper, and have real, honest responses to your work, I'm the person you should contact.
I am a psychology major and I have helped many of my classmates as well as assisting my old psychology professors in helping out with their psychology 101 classes. I love helping psychology students, and would love to help you! If you want a stress-free, flexible, worry-free, easy going, mistakes-okay environment then I am the tutor for you!
I passed COM 225 at Mesa Community College, and I can easily say that I was one of the three best speakers in the class. I actually had to go to the teacher asking for what I should be working on because he wasn't giving me the same criticisms as everyone else.
Critical reading is a skill that I have been taught since I was in elementary school, and is a skill that I only mastered after discovering the tips and tricks to doing it correctly. I'm here to help you find those tips and tricks for yourself so that you too can excel at critical reading.
In high school, I took an AP/IB Statistics class, in college I took PSY230 Psych Statistics. I excelled in both classes, had fun, and was always helping other students. Additionally, in PSY230, we learned how to perform the entire range of tests using SPSS 22. As of Spring of 2014, I am enrolled in PSY 330, advanced Psych Statistics.
As a young adult, I had troubles with study skills, and over the years I have found the strategies that work for me, as well as for others. I don't just pay attention to what works for me, because I know that other people do not learn or process information the same way that I do, and what really matters is helping each individual in the way that works the best for him or her.
English is something that I have always taken pride in, both for myself, and for helping others. I love being able to help other people understand English, and being able to help people communicate their ideas is what really counts. If I can help someone do that... it feels good to watch someone else understand something that they have struggled with, it is a feeling like no other to know that you have helped someone so much.
I have taken dance for three years, and yoga on and off for two. If you need help with flexibility or balance, you can come to me for help. If you are needing to learn new positions or have very specific questions, I am not the tutor for you.
