About Katie

I’m a great tutor because I teach students where they are, and I invest in them as a whole person. I look at what they are capable of, what their strengths are, and what their interests are, so that I can teach them in a way that will be engaging and helpful. I really come to care deeply about my students, and I genuinely care that they learn in a way that is fun and effective. I am in school for Elementary Education, and I bring all of that knowledge to my tutoring. I also have been helping friends and family members with their homework since I was a child, and I really love to help people learn!

Together, let's figure out the best plan for you! I like to teach in ways that work for you, using examples and applications that simplify difficult concepts.

I am currently in school for anthropology, and I really love it! I have experience collecting field data, using statistical data to find patterns, and writing ethnographies.

I have taught English at the elementary level both in California, through student teaching, as well as to ESL students in Equador. I am currently majoring in English and hope to be an English teacher.

I'm 23, so I remember what it was like to be stressed out in school when things got difficult. I came up with lots of ways to succeed, both academically and in time management. I have been where you are. Let me help you get where you want to go!

Awesome and extremely patient — Katie worked with my eight year old daughter who dreaded the word "mental math", and in my daughter's words " I'm just not getting it". Katie spoke with me for a moment and immediately hopped into the tutoring session. She was able to teach my baby mental math and even work on long division. Katie was extremely patient and worked well with my daughter. I would definitely recommend her. ...
