Hi. I’m Kate. I like to work math problems and I like to help others with math! I enjoy teaching and learning in math and science so much as can be demonstrated through my completion of a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Southern Illinois University in 1991, another bachelor's degree in computer science from University of Illinois Springfield in 2009, and a master's degree in education focusing on community college teaching and learning from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2012. I have taught math and engineering classes at both the university and community college level, and I have 17 years of private math instruction experience in the southern Illinois area. I love it more than any other job I've ever done!
I specialize in math learning for adults but will happily meet with junior high and high school students to teach math or provide general homework support in most other areas. I will meet children in their homes with an adult present and adults in a mutually agreed upon public location (coffee shop, school, library). I offer a 24-hour cancellation policy (1 hour charge) and will happily reschedule appointments with proper notice. All lessons must meet for at least 1/2 hour to avoid the cancellation charge.
I’m very organized, prompt, reliable and friendly. It doesn’t matter if you are a student who is struggling with basic algebra or if you need help with more advanced topics in geometry, trigonometry, statistics, or pre-calculus. I *love* private instruction and am ready to help!
