Hi! My name is Kathryn, and I've been tutoring for ten years, and my degree is in Molecular Biology from Harvey Mudd. During my time at HMC, I did work-study for a non-profit called Upward Bound, and that's where I learned how to tutor. Heads up: I am obsessed with Khan Academy.

Nowadays, I spend my free time thinking about Constructor Theory and catching up on my non-fiction. (12/15: I'm currently reading Deep Time.) I'm an Effective Altruist who's earning to give and has taken the Giving What We Can Pledge. I like camping and dolphin-watching, though I don't do enough of either at the moment.

Overall, I'm the kind of lucky person who loves both science and its communication and who's been learning and teaching for the entirety of her adult life. It's this engagement with both sides of the experience over such a long time, I think, that gives me my edge.

Looking forward,
Kathryn

A Master Math Tutor

My 17 year old, high school daughter had her first lesson with Kathryn this evening and I my daughter stated Kathryn was outstanding and the best tutor she has ever had. My daughter said Kathryn knew everything about her subject matter (IB Math Course) and she explained it to her so that she understood it. She was also flexible and considerate of our location needs for in-person tutoring. I am beyond thrilled we found Kathryn.

Best tutor ever!!!

She taught my son and his friend Algebra 2 over the summer, two hours per week, around 10 weeks. She is always on time and well prepared. She is excellent in dividing the difficult concept into a piece for easy understanding. The boys are able to Learn every chapter of Algebra 2 and Trigonometry before they go into High School. We are lucky to have her during the Pandemic, and we’ve decided to have sessions with her continually after summer ends.

Super helpful!

Kathryn was patient and kind. She helped me gain a deeper understanding of my Calculus homework and allowed me to learn the content at my own pace.

USMLE Step 2 CK Tutor- Knowledgeable and Patient.

Kathryn and I have been working together to prepare for the Step 2 CK examination. Today we focused on answering questions in a timed setting. Focusing on reading the clinical vignette silently and on the answer choices, helped me arrive at the correct answers. I have seen my scores improve overall, and Kathryn’s mentorship has helped me with my overall progress Thank you, Kathryn!

Amazing Tutor for Improving Test Taking Strategies (STEP 2CK)

Kathryn is great at identifying problems in how I break down questions and manage my attention. These seemingly small changes can result in big improvements. Before I tutored with Kathryn I wondered if my content knowledge was lacking. After working with her I realize my issues were with test taking strategies. I highly recommend Kathryn to anyone who is taking a big exam.

Knowledgeable, Competent and Highly Professional

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, competent and highly professional tutor, you can stop right now because Kathryn is the one. Since Kathryn offered us a 20 minute free consultation, it was very easy to make a decision for my daughter (previously we had unsuccessful experiences with two other tutors). My daughter needed some help with her AP chemistry and the first lesson with Kathryn was so helpful that we have decided to schedule two regular sessions a week. Now if my daughter doesn’t quite get certain notions during her school AP chemistry class, she knows that Kathryn will find the way to explain it to her. Kathryn knows how to listen to my daughter and address whatever challenges she might have. Kathryn has multiple ways of approaching complex subjects and breaking them down into ‘digestible pieces’ (bonus: Kathryn is fun, too). In short, my daughter is super happy with Kathryn’s style of teaching .

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Kathryn is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. When I had trouble understanding certain math concepts on the CBEST practice tests she took the time to explain various ways to solve the problems. Kathryn also gave me practice problems to do in between our tutoring sessions, which was very helpful.

Anna, 2 lessons with Kathryn

Best tutoring experience yet.

My daughter was able to understand and complete her homework independently after a session with Kathryn. She explains concepts in a way that anyone can understand. We are so glad to have found her, thank you!
