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!

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.

Nice and Understanding

I specifically asked my tutor to break down the subject as simple as possible. She was patient and kind enough to repeat or explain the things I was unsure of. I'd be happy to recommend my tutor to other students.
