About Katie

I've always had a passion for math, and I enjoy helping others learn and work through challenges. My favorite subject to teach is Algebra 1 and 2. I am currently pursuing my teaching certification through the UTeach Dallas program, which includes both intense coursework and student teaching in math classrooms. I am very patient and easy-going, and can adapt to a variety of learning styles. In tutoring math, I walk through problems systematically and reinforce the fundamental concepts that the student can apply to similar problems. I prefer regular sessions so that I can observe a student's learning style and adapt accordingly. I believe it is important to build a relationship with the student first because they say "no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care." I have always worked very hard in my courses, and I expect my students to do the same.

I graduated from The University of Texas at Dallas with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a specialization in Statistics in May 2014. My cumulative undergrad GPA was 3.80. I completed advanced math courses in high school, culminating with AP Calculus and AP Statistics. I achieved a 5 on the AP Calculus BC exam and a 4 on the AP Statistics exam. During my time in college, I completed various upper level courses in math including Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Theoretical Concepts of Calculus, Abstract Algebra, Mathematical Analysis, Probability, Stochastic Processes, Numerical Analysis, and Complex Variables. I have tutored my younger siblings and friends in math for years, and I love seeing others succeed.

A little more about me: I have lived in Houston, Dallas, and Charlotte, NC. My parents homeschooled me from pre-K through the seventh grade. Then I attended public school at Downing Middle School and Marcus High School in Flower Mound, TX. For many years, I taught children's Sunday school at my church. I played the flute competitively for 6 years and now enjoy it as a hobby.

Note: I am currently student teaching Algebra 2 at Marcus High School, so I don't have much availability for taking on private students until May, but please never hesitate to send me an email!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have taken the ACT twice, with a top score of 29 on the math portion.

Algebra 1

I took Pre-AP Algebra 1 in 8th grade and was recognized for outstanding performance and success. The Summit Club of Flower Mound also awarded me for academic excellence in mathematics.

Personally, this is my favorite subject to teach.
