About Kathryn

Hello, prospective student (and/or parent)! My name is Katy, and I've been delighted to tutor many college and high school students in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area since 2004. I graduated with honors from Arizona State University's Barrett Honors College, with one Bachelor's degree in Marketing, and the other in Chemistry.

My main skill as a tutor might initially sound a little strange: it's listening. So many people do not take the time to understand what a student is confused about, or how a student learns, before starting to work with them. Taking the time to do that preliminary step -- and continuing to listen throughout our time together -- makes lessons more efficient, and makes the experience much more enjoyable.

I love helping people find the joy in learning, or at least find the joy in succeeding. As a Chemistry major, I'm used to being asked "Why would you even do that?" (the implication being that Chemistry is too boring or hard to be enjoyable), and I love being able to share my enthusiasm for that subject -- and others!

As I've been tutoring for ten years, I have long experience with helping people from many backgrounds and age levels learn, including students who speak English as a foreign language. I've run the gamut, from teaching classes in Ethiopia to local social workers, to helping lawyers in DC with their grammar, to tutoring an ESL 16 year old in AP Chemistry. My primary experience has been with college students at ASU and SCC.

I am never condescending -- I'm here to help you learn, not judge you for where you are. Anyone who is looking for a tutor clearly wants to excel, and I firmly believe my purpose is to help you in every way I can. My favorite part of tutoring has been watching my students achieve, and often surpass, their goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Grammar

I am a professional freelance editor, and I have tutored both native and secondary English speakers in grammar and writing.

Marketing

I have a cum laude Bachelor's of Science in Marketing through ASU's WP Carey. I did my senior Honors thesis in Marketing, looking into how book cover design influences consumer purchasing.

I have experience in international marketing, strategic marketing management, marketing research (introductory SPSS), servicescape design, sevices marketing, survey and questionnaire design, and leading a focus group.

Marketing is one of my passions, and I would love to share my expertise with you!

Organic Chemistry

I have taken two years of Organic Chemistry and the related labs for Chemistry majors.

I graduated cum laude with an honors degree from the ASU Chemistry program.

I have tutored three individuals previously specifically in Organic Chemistry.

Study Skills

I have taught many students how to learn study skills in the course of teaching other topics. This includes coaching them through how to properly utilize their textbooks, helping them design study schedules, and teaching them how to develop their own study guides prior to tests.

I've done this work with middle school, high school, and undergraduate students, as well as students new to homeschooling.
