About Kathryn

I have been working as a tutor for 16 years. I worked with students as a peer tutor, then as a professional tutor after obtaining my Bachelor's degree and teaching credential. My favorite part of tutoring is watching my students' faces light up when they have an "ah-ha" moment. It is extremely fulfilling for me to have the opportunity to work with students in small groups and one on one rather than in a whole classroom setting.

In addition to tutoring, I have been a classroom teacher for middle school math and science. Students in my classes enjoy my project-based approach to the curriculum. I integrate technology where appropriate, and present a curriculum that had room for students to explore their own curiosities. I focus not just on the content, but also the scientific process. I ask open-ended questions and give my students the tools to discover systematically the answers, which I believe are fundamental to their educations.

I have found that working with students is a perfect match for my science-oriented mind and love of learning.

I have had training as a math teacher to approach math with a variety of strategies in order to determine the best approach for each individual student.

I look forward to speaking with interested students directly to determine how I can best meet their needs.
