About Kate

I hold a Master's degree in Engineering from Santa Clara University. I live with my husband in Burlingame and work for a large Software Corporation in Silicon Valley as my primary job. As a certified Reiki Master practitioner, I learned to stay calm and patient from daily meditations. I have tutored over 200 hours with Wyzant (at least 3,000 hours in lifetime).

I did a lot of peer tutoring in both undergraduate and graduate school as my greatest hobby. I am also familiar with BYU online High School Math courses. I am good at adapting to different learning styles which I have researched extensively to help my career in Software Industries with my background knowledge of Electrical Engineering, and am confident that I will increase the rate of my students' academic success.

I work with 10 to 15 students in all level Math starting with Pre Algebra through AP Calculus each week. My goal is to help any student understand the materials, and prepare for Math, GRE, SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, HSPT (Math Sections only) and other aptitude and achievement exams in order to obtain a desired result in a very short amount of time.

Best tutor

She was knowledgeable about the subject matter, she was patient, she was encouraging, and she is a natural teacher. Kate was able to improve my sons math performance more in two days than weeks of school. Excellent tutor. I'd recommend her without reservation.
