My expertise is in the life sciences with specialization in AP biology exam preparation, introductory chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, and human anatomy and physiology. I look forward to hearing from you and getting started towards you reaching your educational goals.
Katon tutored biology for my daughter, who is a junior in high school. Over an 11-week period, he was not only able to explain abstract concepts in a memorable way, he developed a study plan to keep my daughter on track for the SAT biology test! Katon was on-time for every lesson and often stayed late if my daughter still had questions. With Katon's weekly tutoring, my daughter's completed the SAT biology test with confidence and improved her score by 110 points! We are so happy to have found an experienced, dedicated tutor such as Katon.Vera, 11 lessons with Katon
He knows everything!
I am a student at the University of Illinois taking the class MCB 150. This class is curved so that an 83.9% counts as an A- and the exam averages are around 50%. Once I started tutoring with Katon my exam scores rose and I went from a 52% on the exam to a 90%. I would say that he had the answer to every question I asked no matter how obscure off of the top of his head and usually an article or graphic to back it up. I will end up with an A- in this class which is way beyond my expectations and I owe it all to Katon. I would definitely recommend him for any biology class and I think that he was an extremely helpful and patient tutor!Isabella, 15 lessons with Katon
Flexible and understanding!
Katon has been so patient with the non traditional approach my college genetics course has. In just a couple of hours I was able to catch up on some more basic knowledge and get a better understanding of what is currently being covered in class (I’m very behind, so the patience there was much appreciated too). He was so kind and able to be very flexible with his hours and quickly fit me into his schedule before my big exam. I look forward to working with him more!Genevieve, 2 lessons with Katon

Accolades to Katon!
Katon tutored biology for me. His lessons were a life long treasure no other instructor or tutor has given me before. I struggle with ADHD and he gave simple study tips that have proven to be beneficial since. He has a history of teaching high school kids and others. Suffice to say, he understands and delivers material per the student need. He not only new the material but was quite familiar with the book and author. During the lesson he answered all of my questions without delay. During break he expanded on his knowledge base. This tutor really knows is stuff! He is an intellectual with patience and a teaching background. It does not get any better. Thank you so much! Accolades to Katon!!!Julia, 1 lesson with Katon
As a non-traditional returning college student I needed help getting back on track especially in the sciences arena (biology) and wanted to ensure I really understood the material and could be successful. I am so glad I found Katon on WyzAnt as not only do I comprehend the material so much better, he has inspired and made me passionate about it. He enhances and reinforces what I learn in class by challenging me, contributing his knowledge and perspective, providing and referencing excellent resources and materials in the lessons customized to my specific learning needs. He is very patient, intelligent, a great educator and an all-around amazing tutor!Erin, 7 lessons with Katon
I worked with Katon during my preparation for the GRE. He was wonderfully helpful, as well as knowledgeable about details of the examination. He provided me with guidance from scheduling my exam date to details about how each section is scored. Katon modeled our tutoring sessions after the Kaplan GRE preparation course. The Kaplan methods are excellent tools to save time and Katon really helped me through understanding these short cuts and executing them efficiently. He also provided me with numerous resources, an outline of each of the lessons, and homework that would help solidify my understanding of the material. I would absolutely recommend Katon if you are looking for someone to help you prepare for the GREs. He is patient, flexible, easily accessible and he really goes above and beyond to help!Kirsten, 1 lesson with KatonTutor responded:
Kirsten did a great job. She was always prepared, excited and had a great attitude every time we met for tutoring! I really enjoyed working with you Kirsten. Good luck with all your academic endeavors and professional goals!
Katon made a hit with my son!
My 17-year old son hates homework and hates to give up his free time to study, so I was leery about getting him a tutor. But Katon got him engaged right away and they worked together for nearly an entire hour. After the session my son said Katon was "cool" and wants to keep working with him. All I can say is, "Whew!" And, "Thank you, Katon for being genuine, connecting with my son and getting right to work."Debbie, 2 lessons with Katon
Punctual, Passionate, Patient and Personable
I recently contracted with Katon K. as a computer skills improvement tutor for three, one-hour sessions and anticipate contracting with him for additional tutoring hours. On each scheduled session Katon arrived on time (Punctual). As a seasoned educator, he is very (Passionate) about teaching and (Patient) regarding the teacher and student relationship. Additionally, Katon is very (Personable). Katon possesses the computer tutoring skills that I specifically need. In addition to being Punctual, Passionate, Patient and Personable, I found the Price for Katon's services to be very reasonable and well worth the hourly fee.Curt, 4 lessons with Katon
