Hello! My name is Katherine and I specialize in middle and high school-level mathematics up through AP Calculus AB/BC and SAT math. I look forward to helping you achieve your educational goals and building your foundation for mathematical success.

In the past two years, I have been volunteering as a middle/high-school math tutor at Professional Tutors of America, giving me experience in working with students of all skill levels and educational backgrounds. During tutoring sessions, I guide students through their homework, clarify any misconceptions, and provide supplemental examples to solidify their understanding of the materials. Prior to that, I tutored my two daughters and their peers up through AP Calculus AB and AP Calculus BC, leading to them achieving 5’s and 4’s on their AP exams. I also tutored them in SAT math, raising their scores by 150 points until they consistently scored 750+ in the math section. It has been rewarding seeing my students rediscover their confidence and love for math.

My students’ success lies in: my emphasis on building a strong foundation before diving into deeper topics, my hands-on approach to ensure comprehensive understanding, and my patient and encouraging demeanor.

I hold a B.S. in Computer Science and Statistics from the University of New South Wales, Australia, and have 15+ years of working experience as a software engineer at various companies, including American Express, Citi Bank, and TVB Corporation.

Please reach out for inquiries and I look forward to helping you achieve your educational goals and building your foundation for mathematical success.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter is happy to learn from Katherine although this is her 2nd session. Katherine is able to explain how to approach to solve the problem instead of throwing an answer only. Katherine is very patient to listen to my daughter's every questions and responded quick and easy to understand way. I am appreciate that Katherine could help my daughter to improve her AP Calculus understanding especially AP test in the next few month.

Billy, 2 lessons with Katherine

Awesome Tutor!

Katherine was great with helping our daughter w/ Algebra 1. We sent over some of the learning material from school and she reviewed them thoroughly and was well prepared. The session was very helpful and our daughter learned a lot.

Taeyung, 1 lesson with Katherine

Knowledgeable and Helpful

Katherine was very helpful when tutoring my daughter for AP Calc AB and increased her grade by 3 letters. She is very patient and teaches fundamental concepts so it is easier to learn. Highly recommend

Chaitanya, 16 lessons with Katherine

explains everything in detail!

She made sure I understood basic concepts before moving on, which I really appreciated because my calc teacher doesn’t do this and assumes everyone knows “the basics”. Very helpful!!

Kenza , 1 lesson with Katherine

Oleksii, 23 lessons with Katherine

Patient and easy to communicate our needs.

She taught my daughter how to graph sin, cos, sec, csec, tan, and cot. Now she understands it all. Katherine is very organized. She preps lessons and communicates well with what my daughter needs and beyond.

Pia, 26 lessons with Katherine

Great Tutor

It is important to Siyani to work with her assignments, and we were not able to do that because of the school's setup. We have to speak to the school to work with us for tutoring purposes. However, Katherine is great, engaging, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient.

Stacey, 1 lesson with Katherine

Skilled and patient.

Katherine is a great teacher! She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. I am currently taking tutoring sessions with her on AP Calculus BC, and she is very informative. Not only does she teach you the concepts but she will also make sure you understand the basics that build up to those concepts. She is always well prepared, and if you don't understand something, she will come up with her own examples to show you different ways of looking at the concept/question. She also has helpful materials and notes to look at and refer to. I highly recommend Katherine as a math tutor.
