I’m Kate. I’m a 25-year-old alum of Acalanes High School and Macalester College, a liberal arts college in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I graduated with a degree in Classics. I’m an excellent writer, an even better editor and proofreader, and a National Merit Scholar. My specialties are languages—I can tutor in French, Spanish, and Latin—as well as history and writing.

I was a peer tutor in French, English, and history at Acalanes and a Latin preceptor during college. During my senior year at Macalester College, I studied at the competitive Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies in Rome, Italy, and was a research fellow at an archaeological dig in Israel.

Since college, I have been interning in museums, and I plan to attend graduate school in art history and museum studies. In the meantime, I’d love to tutor some great students!

I will substantially improve students’ writing, editing, and proofreading skills. I can also tutor in history and the PSAT and SAT. Can’t wait to meet you!

Macalester College (Classics)

Great motivation for my kids After going through different teachers to work with with our twins on reading, comprehension, and math, we finally found Kate. She is an inspiration to our kids. Our twins love reading and start to react differently about their experience with math and reading. We have started seeing light. Thank you Kate. ...
