I teach all core subjects at the elementary and middle school level (K-8th) in addition to advanced-level chemistry (high school, AP, introductory college level).

Using my background as a behavioral therapist, I specialize in helping students with disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

I have over 15 years of teaching experience, and my favorite aspect of teaching is empowering students. Having earned my PhD in chemistry, I have a particular love for teaching math and science and overcoming students' conception that these subjects are "too hard."

I love teaching at the elementary/middle school level because I'm able to build kids' confidence at a foundational stage in their lives. My approach is to keep learning relaxed and fun and to show kids their own talent.

When teaching chemistry to high school and college students, I pull from the experience I gained as a Senior Research Scientist at an environmental technology company. I have a detailed knowledge of both the academic and real-world applications of chemistry, and I love showing students how a knowledge of chemistry benefits everyone regardless of the career they pursue.

Everyone who learns must overcome obstacles, and those obstacles are unique to every individual. I take the time to understand the challenges faced by every one of my students, and I work to make sure that each student achieves their goals.

Let's begin by discussing how I can help you. Contact me to set up a complimentary consultation.

Great tutor

I have done three sessions so far with Katherine. she’s amazing. Katherine ! thank you for the privilege of working with you. I highly recommend Katherine .

Mohrah, 3 lessons with Katherine

Knowledgeable and pateint

I felt a weight lifted just from the 1st session. My son really liked Katherine and was very comfortable with her. We signed on 2 days a week. My son has an ADHD diagnosis and is having focus issues at school. Math has become a nightmare for us at home. From our first conversation with Katherine she made me feel like we were not alone and she was very knowledgeable and understanding with our issue.

Dana, 15 lessons with Katherine

Very patient and helpful tutor

My son has been with Katherine for 2 weeks and total over 30 hours so far. We are very happy with all the sessions. Katherine is very patient and creative.

Paul, 34 lessons with Katherine

Knowledgeable and friendly tutor

Katherine gave me a presentation on some of the work she'd done in the chemical industry, and also helped me work through a few problems about organic reactions in acidic vs basic solutions. She seemed knowledgeable about the things we talked about.

Buck, 2 lessons with Katherine

Very patient and helpful tutor

My son just finished the 3rd session with Katherine. She is very impressive. My son is usually shy and quiet with new tutor at the beginning. However, Katherine is very patient and caring, and she was able to my son to talk and work from the beginning. Look forward to having more and more successful sessions with Katherine.
