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!

Extremely knowledgable tutor

I have been struggling in Human Anatomy and Physiology this semester, and Katon explained everything so that I could understand it perfectly!

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!!!

Highest Quality!

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!

Wonderfully helpful

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!

Tutor 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."

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.
