Hi, I'm Katie! I would love to work with you or your child to actually understand and enjoy your/their class!

My goal is for my learners to understand biology on a fundamental level like teachers or professors do. After 9+ years of experience in science education, I have developed methods that enable my learners to build a foundation of understanding that they can use to rationalize answers to test questions with confidence. Advanced Placement Biology is a specialty of mine! Below is the list of classes that I offer currently.

College Biology 1 & 2, AP Biology, High School Biology and High School Chemistry

While we are working together, I will not just simply talk. While I have mastered clear, direct and relatable explanations that I will share with my students, I've learned that there are more effective ways of building another's understanding. Once we have introduced a topic I will encourage my learner to explain biological concepts to me as you understand them. To potential students, don't worry! It's okay if you explain them to me wrong! In fact that is actually the point. Your explanations reveal to me what you know, what you do not know and any misconceptions that you may have. I can then work to reinforce what you already know and correct what you misunderstand. When it comes time for a test you will be confident because you have already demonstrated that you understand it because you have explained it yourself like a teacher.

I know that tutors don't come cheap and taking the time to hire outside help can seem like a big step. Know that my method is a highly efficient use of our time because it enables use to directly address problem areas, while reinforcing the knowledge that my students already have. Students often find they know more than they think they do. Often students find that they have some specific lapses in their knowledge or that they misunderstand a few specific things and when these problems are cleared up, everything their teacher or professor says in class suddenly makes sense!

A very patient tutor

I am struggling in AP biology and Katie helped me a lot. She explains every concept that I don't understand is a very detailed and understandable way. She always answers every question that I have patiently!
