Bio

My name is Kate. I hold a Master's degree in Engineering from Santa Clara University. I live in San Bruno and work for a Software Company in San Francisco as my primary job. As a certified Reiki Master practitioner, I learned to stay calm and patient from daily meditations. I have tutored over 700 hours with Wyzant (at least 3,000 hours lifetime).

As a certified Reiki Master practitioner, I learned to stay calm and patient from daily meditations. I have tutored over 700 hours with Wyzant (at least 3,000 hours 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 have helped hundreds of students starting with Pre Algebra through AP Calculus. My goal is to help any student understands 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.

Knowledgeable, Committed, and Patient Tutor

When my son was in first grade, a teacher told him that math is like brushing your teeth. It is something you have to do every day and it is something you can’t forget. Practice makes you better and the more you practice, the easier math gets. Just like brushing his teeth, my son works with Kate regularly. Kate has been a part of my 6th grade son’s learning for the last two years, meeting every Saturday morning at the library. Kate follows along with my son’s math curriculum at school, reinforcing what he has learned for the week and explaining problems that were not clear in the classroom. Her patience and commitment to helping my son is truly commendable. My son is a more confident test taker because of Kate. He achieves his academic goals for the year and Kate is instrumental in his math accomplishments. Kate is knowledgeable and is able to explain concepts clearly. Kate also helps my 9th grade son. Last year, she helped prepare my son for the High School Preparation Test. She is a great tutor for his Honors Algebra 1 class and will be helping him with Honors Geometry and SAT preparation soon. Kate is always a pleasure to work with. My sons used to ask me, “Why is Kate always smiling?” Kate is a happy and a pleasant person! She is helping both my sons reach their potential.

Very good geometry tutor

Thanks for the lesson for our daughter today. She liked the session. We think she is more clear now on the concepts.

Ron, 1 lesson with Kate

Great tutor!

Kate was very kind and patient. My daughter, who was not thrilled about having a tutor, was very happy after her session with Kate. Kate is very smart and easy to work with.

Declan, 2 lessons with Kate

AMAZING!!

Kate is an amazing tutor. She is patient, thorough, and explains the material in a way that’s easy to understand. My daughter had a D in geometry and since we’ve been working with Kate she now has an A. We feel so blessed to have found Kate and highly recommend her.

Lynn, 46 lessons with Kate

I asked my son

I asked my son at the end of the session what star rating I should give. He said without hesitating - “give her a 5 dad.” Then he asked when can he have another lesson. Now that’s an effective tutor !

Ray, 33 lessons with Kate

Patient tutor

Kate came to our house in a timely fashion. Also my son feels she is able to breakdown geometry to simplify so it is easier to understand and remember. She is very knowledgeable in the subject and will continue to work together

Hema, 2 lessons with Kate

Very patient and explains concepts throughly

Kate has been working with my son and has a huge difference. He was struggling in math, and now he is scoring As and Bs. My biggest concern was he was not fully understanding the concepts, but Kate changed all of that. He understands the concepts now and can explain them back. He finished last year with an A grade. Kate's expertise, patience and positive attitude has made all the difference. My son is positive about math and his confidence is greatly improved.

Eileen, 91 lessons with Kate

Kate was the perfect tutor for me. She was intelligent and patient when teaching me things I didn't know.

Am a incoming sixth grader and wanted to brush up on my math skills before the start of school. Kate taught me how to convert fractions into decimals and percentages vice a versa and taught me a little bit of algebra. I loved how Kate was very patient and did not just teach you one way to solve the equation that was given but taught you many ways including the most efficient way. Kate was very friendly and kind and always has a smile. Kate's tutoring improved my confidence in math. Thank you Kate for everything and am hoping to work with you again in the near future.

Roni, 2 lessons with Kate

Knowledgable and able to explain in a way that is easy to understand

My daughter really enjoys working with Kate because she's able to quickly explain the Geometry problems that my daughter will get stuck on. A great confidence build in preparing for finals.
