About Kate

Motivating people is my greatest joy. Let's work together to set goals, remove obstacles, and
achieve your dreams! A passion for learning, and patient teachers, made my educational and
career dreams come true.

I grew up in a small town but as a graduate of America's top universities I've performed in Carnegie Hall, presented at national leadership conferences, worked at a Fortune 500 company, and traveled the world. I understand college and MBA admissions/recruiting, and I have expertise in History/English/Foreign Language/Study Skills with
elementary students, teenagers, and adult learners.

Math can be fun once you approach problem-solving with a creative lens! From working as a statistics TA in grad school to mentoring fellow finance employees at a Fortune 500 company, I love teaching math!

Communication is key to leadership. I have extensive public speaking and writing experience, and I love teaching reading, writing, and presentation skills that turn you into the leader you want to be.

A fluent French speaker, I hold a degree in French Literature from Stanford University, and I have completed coursework at Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Paris. During my time in Paris, I worked as a researcher at Sciences Po and Bibliotheque Nationale. Ici on parle francais!

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

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.

Prealgebra

I love making math fun and interactive! I hold an MBA from Cornell and a BA from Stanford University, and I have experience working with learners of all ages.

Public Speaking

I love speaking in front of an audience. I grew up as a classically trained singer who performed in Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and spent several years performing at Disneyland. From business presentations to recruiting events to charity events, I excel at public speaking. I have given presentations at national leadership conferences, such as the 2011 National Young Nonprofit Professionals Network leadership conference. I have also given the keynote address at the 2010 Cornell MBA Orientation, and I speak frequently at MBA recruiting events and community service programs in California and across the US. Having spoken for community and social change organizations as a fundraiser for over 15 years, I find speaking to be a joy and a privilege. Thank you.
