Hello Future Students!

Do your chemistry tests look like they are written in a foreign language? Are you tired of not getting the grades that you want? Are you worried about how to score high on the SAT and get into your dream college all while managing too many AP and honors courses? I know that upper level math and science courses may seem intimidating at first but a little bit of hard work and tutoring with me will get you the grade that you want.

I managed a full AP course load in high school along with multiple after school activities (like honor societies, language clubs, and sports teams). After I graduated as valedictorian, with over a 4.0 GPA from my Fairfax County high school, I went on to graduate from the University of Virginia in 3 years. I followed my dreams and earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology.

I can teach you effective study skills and how to budget your time. I can help you plan out your high school career if you are just beginning or help you tackle the college application process. I have been working with students for several years at both the high school and college level. I have excelled in my own AP and college level courses, and I know how to teach you what you need to know to perform in the classroom.

I look forward to tutoring you!

I took college-level genetics courses at the University of Virginia (Biol 300) and was a biology major. I have tutored several students in genetics at the university level.

Organic Chemistry

I was a pre-med student in college and I know how challenging Organic Chemistry can be for chemistry majors, pre-med/pre-dental students, or anyone who just wants to learn about O Chem. Scoring in the top 90th percentile on my own graduate exam, I can help you understand why chemical reactions occur and teach you want you need to know to do well on graduate level exams.

Study Skills

I am very patient and understanding of students needs. I work with students in order to help them learn how to budget their time and prioritize tasks. I also teach students how to study and what they need to focus on.

Excellent Katherine is a great tutor. As my daughter prepared to fill out college applications in her senior year, we knew her biggest stumbling block would be the essays and would need help.
