Kate is a true professional who is very committed to her tutoring! We took advantage of group tutoring sessions that were very helpful, especially prior to taking the SAT for the first time. Then, Kate provided focused tutoring based on the test results. We highly recommend Kate for SAT tutoring and imagine Kate would be excellent in any content area tutoring provided. Thank you, Kate!
Kate did a wonderful job in making my daughter feel comfortable and motivated. She looks forward to working with her again.
Kate prepared my son for SAT. Though he had a pretty good score to begin with, she was able to evaluate him and help him in the right areas in a very short period of time. She helped him to score very close to a perfect score. She taught SAT Reading, SAT Math and SAT Writing. She is an excellent teacher and very pleasant person. I consider myself lucky to find her and hire her.
Kate has worked with both my high school kids, one for SAT and the other for writing. She has been very helpful with the writing as her grades went to A's. We are waiting for SAT results, but are very hopeful as the practice test went up 220 points.
Kate is very kind and patient. She is creative and has a wonderful understanding of children and the way they learn.
Kate did a terrific job with tutoring my daughter and a few of her friends during the summer for the SATs. She accommodated having both group and individual sessions and was able to help each kid with areas that they needed help. She was very responsive on email and on-time. It gave my daughter much more confidence going into the test and Kate was very knowledgeable on the subjects.
Kate has a great personality and easily and quickly connected with my 16 year old son. She was nonthreatening and helped him feel good about himself and his skills. She was positive and gave him confidence that he can easily fill in the knowledge gaps. I couldn't be happier with the interaction and progress in their first session!! Kate continues to engage him in a very positive way. He feels like he is really improving in his skills and is happy he is working with Kate - which is a huge complement from a 16 year old boy who would rather be playing x-box. His positive attitude is a testament to Kate's skills and abilities!
First, I am the parent of the student. Second, I chose Kate because of the way she presented her description of her abilities on the WyzAnt website. She followed up quickly and asked what, if anything should she be aware of about my daughter's study/learning abilities. Kate was prompt and accommodating with her time for our daughter. Third we contacted her to assist our daughter with her SAT test. Our daughter is an Honors and advanced class student, yet didn't do as well as we had expected on her SAT's; her score didn't reflect her ability. I can't say whether Kate's tutoring helped yet because my daughter hasn't retaken her SAT. I will update this in a couple of months if I can. Kate's style and concerns are what impressed me. I contacted her to help our daughter with the critical reading / reading comprehension portion of the SAT, though I didn't think my daughter did as well as she could have in the Math portion of the SAT either. We didn't know what the problem was. Kate took to heart that our daughter suffered from ADHD when she was younger. While it doesn't go away, it does require coping skills. My daughter really appreciated Kate's patience, and purposeful repetition with her weaknesses. She also gave my daughter homework. We thought that was great too because it enabled Kate to see and understand the areas where and why my daughter was messing up and rectify. Kate also DID help her with her Math! Kate was able to hone in on my daughters problem and create a strategy that gave my daughter renewed confidence to retake her SAT and expect a better outcome. My daughter and I whole-heartedly recommend Kate.
