About Katherine


Bio

I have an Engineering degree from Columbia University and have always excelled in academics. I am also a Mom of three and a military spouse. I enjoy tutoring part-time while homeschooling my own three children. Teaching others keeps my brain sharp.

I enjoy meeting students who are striving to improve themselves through education. Since I was in high school, I have tutored or mentored my peers and younger students. I have also taught in K-12 classrooms and have been a teaching assistant...

I have an Engineering degree from Columbia University and have always excelled in academics. I am also a Mom of three and a military spouse. I enjoy tutoring part-time while homeschooling my own three children. Teaching others keeps my brain sharp.

I enjoy meeting students who are striving to improve themselves through education. Since I was in high school, I have tutored or mentored my peers and younger students. I have also taught in K-12 classrooms and have been a teaching assistant (TA) at the undergraduate level. I especially enjoy teaching math and science, but have experience in all primary subjects.

I believe everyone can learn any subject. Not everyone learns the same way or at the same pace. I look forward to getting know each student and helping them be successful.

Math and science were my strongest subjects in school. I was a "math prodigy" as a child and won an award in high school for a statewide math contest (the "MathCounts" contest). I went on to earn an Engineering degree from an Ivy League school and had a successful career in high tech before focusing on teaching. I love STEM subjects because I like solving problems using logic and creativity; and technology provides great hope for the future.

Proofreading

Proofreading

Writing clearly is the most valuable skill an academic or professional can have. While I have always pursued degrees in math and science, it is my English Writing and Proofreading skills that have set me apart as a Top Performer, academically and professionally. I enjoy proofreading for others because it helps people to express themselves and to succeed in every endeavor.

Everyone can learn math! I love to watch the light bulbs come on when my students begin to feel confident with math. I make sure each student understands the fundamentals before moving on to more complex concepts, and try to give lots of real-world examples. I have taught math to 1st grade through undergrad level students. I have an Engineering degree and completed several years of advanced math myself, including Calculus and Statistics.
