About Katryn

I enjoy learning, which is why I pursued graduate work in biomedical research. The most enriching part of my graduate experience was mentoring undergraduate students. I love helping them work through the process of learning to ask the right questions and mastering key concepts.

My past tutoring experience includes working as a Supplemental Instruction Leader for General Chemistry I and II. As an instructor and a peer tutor, I enjoyed helping students to grasp concepts by relating them to familiar topics or developing analogies to more familiar objects; for example, explaining chemical bonding structures as the difference between a classroom of people, a family, and a romantic couple. In addition to undergraduate students, I have experience working with middle school students, primarily in literature research and essay writing.

With my educational background, I have extensive experience working with Microsoft Office. I am well versed in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint and would be willing to provide instruction in these areas as well.

Exploring the mysteries of the human body is fascinating. My undergraduate and graduate work has provided me with a broad background in both biology and chemistry including general biology, molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, cell biology, intro to physiology, human nutrition, general chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, and toxicology. With my practical experience in the laboratory, I have learned how to integrate and apply these diverse subjects, which helps me communicate content as I tutor.

Biblical study has been a life-long pursuit. I am passionate about my faith in Christ and have recently completed two years of ministry school. My experience includes leading and developing group Bible studies for a graduate community at my alma mater.

Before tutoring begins, I offer a free half hour consultation to develop an action plan and get acquainted. I do require a minimum of 2 hours notice if a tutoring session needs to be cancelled, and I will be happy to reschedule any missed meetings.

I am excited to communicate with you about your goals and develop a study plan that matches your learning needs.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

As an undergraduate student at a Christian liberal arts college, I took several Biblical studies courses before attending ministry school. I have recently completed my second year of ministry school. I have taken a full year course on Biblical exegesis. I also studied core Christian doctrines and Christian history. I have completed a Biblical survey course, intensive courses on the Gospels, and Biblical leadership (I & II Timothy and Titus), and I have completed two theology courses. My Bible training was expanded with complementary classes, including a courses on different religious worldviews, intercession, and Christian lifestyle.

Nutrition

I received my doctorate from the Graduate Center for Nutritional Sciences (now part of Pharmacology and Nutritional Sciences) at the University of Kentucky, where I studied the inflammatory effects of environmental pollutants and the potential anti-inflammatory effects of fish oil. I completed multiple graduate courses on nutrition including macronutrients, micronutrients, and current topics in nutrition. As an undergraduate student, I also participated in a community nutrition course, in which I developed a grant for a local food pantry.
