Hi there! I currently attend the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated from UCLA magna cum laude with a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Conservation Biology. As a recent college grad, I understand just how essential an engaging teacher is to the learning process, especially when it comes to the sciences!

Hi there! I currently attend the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and graduated from UCLA magna cum laude with a B.S. in Environmental Science and a minor in Conservation Biology. As a recent college grad, I understand just how essential an engaging teacher is to the learning process, especially when it comes to the sciences! In cases where a professor/teacher is not imparting information in a way that works for you, a knowledgeable tutor can be a lifesaver. While in school, I found that the classes I got really excited about were the ones taught by people who were outwardly passionate about their subject. Fortunately, I've had a lot of amazing teachers over the years and as such I’ve caught the “bug” of loving many sciences such as chemistry, biology, genetics, and geology. I try my best to bring this enthusiasm to the table during tutoring sessions - I am excited to help you get the grade you want in whatever subject challenges you!

I worked part-time as a tutor for high school and undergrad students during the four years of my undergraduate education - via private tutoring sessions, as an employee of an on-campus tutoring center, and as a TA for a few classes at UCLA. As a TA I often held extra reviews before exams to ensure that the students that needed a little extra help would do well. Over the last five years I have repeatedly had the satisfaction of seeing the metaphorical lightbulb flick on in my students’ eyes. I find that explaining concepts by drawing parallels to everyday life is often helpful in forming the foundation for a higher level of understanding. In addition to talking through any stumbling blocks you may be encountering in your classes, I am happy to come up with example problems, lesson plans, or use materials from textbooks, practice tests, etc - whatever you believe you will derive the most benefit from.

Please feel free contact me with any questions or to set up a session! I attend the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine (I am a full-time student) so please forgive me if it t

In addition to working with high school, college, and adult students, I love working with children! Making sure your child has a solid understanding of basic sciences can be a great advantage for them for years to come. If you are struggling to keep your child on track in the era of "zoom school" or want to get them ahead of the curve, send me a message!

Are you struggling with memorizing every little thing that's expected of you from your anatomy class? Are you confused about the difference between the coracoid process and coronoid processes? Stop searching through google images and reach out to me! I will help you understand anatomy, rather than just memorize it.

Superior tutor

Katia jumped right in and pinpointed the missing chemistry components my child was missing. Her patience and flexibility are amazing but her knowledge is superior. Without reservation that we enthusiastically recommend her.

Anatomy

Katia and I reviewed conditions of the heart and lungs. She helped me understand the conditions and created fun ways to help me remember them.

public health, epidemiology

Katia is great. She is always prepared for the lesson. She was familiar with the material which helped me understand the subject.

X-Rays

Katia was well prepared for the tutoring session. She helped me understand the complex concepts of x-ray physics. She was able to explain MAs, KVp, inverse square law, intensifying screens, grids, and scatter radiation in a way that was fun and easy to learn.

Thanks again, Chris! I always enjoy our sessions. So glad I could help.

X-rays

Katia was great! She prepared for the lesson beforehand by reading over the material and creating test questions. I learned the information quickly and efficiently. Overall a great tutor who is passionate! I look forward to more lessons.

Caring and knowledgeable tutor!

Katia was great at helping me understand my AP chem material. She worked very hard to make sure I understood before we would move on and her explanations made more sense than my teacher's! I feel much more confident in the material covered after reviewing it with her. I will be coming to her for help again soon, I'm sure.
