Katherine is nothing short of amazing. From the academic need perspective, she is incredibly intelligent, well educated, organized and has great study habits. On a personal level she is sincere, well mannered, punctual and patient. In addition she has a wonderfully positive attitude to the task ahead, which in my case was a biochemistry final exam to complete a course at the University of California at Davis. Even though my professor was 3000 miles away, and my brain very rusty from a five year break from college, she was able to pull my head together and get me headed in the right direction. In one month, I was able to go from doing nothing to sitting down to a proctored exam (which she even arranged) and passing it. She made sure personally that I had all of the resources possible at my fingertips, and we even had late evening study sessions, and several last minute emails. Don't be fooled however, I was VERY motivated to succeed and willing to study my tail off for a few weeks night and day. But, I had done this before on my own without any luck. Katherine provided the hands on support and guidance I needed to prepare effectively in a short time period. I was able to pass my incomplete, and flew out to California for my graduation the day after I took my test. It was great! Looking forward to grad school. Thank you Katherine!!
Katherine can teach all the sciences and physics better than any educator I have ever met. She spent years in management and thankfully, for us, transitioned to education. Her passion is evident at all my son's lessons. She can take a complex problem and present it in terms that are easily understood. I highly recommend Katherine as an educator; she is "one in a million".
Everything I have heard from my daughter regarding Katherine has been great; a very knowledgeable, and patient tutor with a talent to transfer the knowledge. Always prepared and goes out of her way to help her student. Extremely nice.
She is an excellent teacher, was able to schedule lesson with a very short notice. Physics is a piece of cake for her. She tutored my son who has having lot of trouble with Physics and with 2 classes she was able to get him up to speed on the topic. She is very patient and I like her style. She has great resources, she has library of books, she was kind enough to lend me a book as well. I would recommend her to anyone who wants her for Physics from high school, college. She is Physics genius. I have no doubt that she can teach other subjects Biology, chemistry, Algebra. It was great working with her.
Katherine has made the time to help my son prepare for a final test and then for upcoming final. She has been professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic at the lessons. I wish we had started tutoring earlier because it has helped my son with understanding Chemistry.
Mrs. P. is an excellent tutor who has many resources at hand if you need extra help in anything. She is very flexible and is willing to work around your schedule. She goes at the right pace and explains concepts simply with many examples. She is also easily accessible and responds quickly to your emails.
Katherine is an excellent and very thorough and knowledgeable tutor. She is also a very POSITIVE person which is so critical in this learning environment. We would highly recommend Katherine to anyone needing help in organizing or learning Chemistry! Great experience!
Mrs. P. was truly a big help with my study of organic chemistry. She was always prepared and eager to tackle the difficult questions I asked throughout every session. She always had background information and additional practice problems if I needed to focus on particular areas. She supplied me with many teaching aids including books, flashcards, and even extra textbooks to support her points. I would recommend her to any student that is serious about performing at the best of their ability in the sciences. She was extremely knowledgeable and always explained things that made sense to me as a college student. We completed an entire semester course in two weeks and now I feel more than prepared to take Organic Chemistry 2 next year. Aside from being a wonderful person and tutor, she was always on time and she was even flexible with my schedule which was helpful! Any student would be lucky to have her!
I have to say that by far Katherine has been the best tutor I have met. She is always prepared, on time, and eager to help. I know I can make it through my chemistry course with her help!
