Easy to understand Math and SAT preparation
Over many years it has been a thrill to see my students increase their grades in math, science and English as well as their scores on the SAT and ACT tests. I enjoy seeing students get the "ah-ha" moment when they begin to comprehend.
I am a National Merit Finalist who has tutored and taught classes extensively, including AP Calculus, AP Statistics, Precalc, and Physics in high school, Algebra at Pepperdine University, and Computer Science at CSUN. I hold a Master's degree in Computer...

Great Tutor!
Kathy has been so helpful as my tutor! Kathy is very prompt about getting back to you over the phone and makes it simple to set up an appointment. She believes in her students and goes above and beyond to help them. There are few tutors or professors I've come across who are amazing at what they do and who see their students' potential. I am very proud to say that Kathy is one of them. With Kathy's help, I jumped two full letter grades! When I first came to Kathy, I was working with a low "C" in a math class I was taking. Throughout the course and after having completed the final I jumped the 2 full letter grades from a "C" to an "A" with her help! Believe it or not, if you listen and put in the time, you'll see results.

Excellent Algebra 1 review
Kathy helped my son review Algebra 1 for a placement exam he had to take. She only had 3 lessons to accomplish this and he had not thought about math all summer long! Kathy was flexible with meeting times and got him right into review. She was very encouraging to him. She was attentive to his needs. I recommend her for all of the above reasons. I know who to call in the future when my son needs extra help with math. Thank you Kathy for your help.

High impact tutor
Our son wanted to focus on SAT strategies (he felt good on the content), so he had several sessions with Kathy leading up to the Test. Kathy's insight and input were invaluable to George, both in terms of practical tips and validating his confidence going into the Test. Her subject matter expertise and Test knowledge are impressive, as is her ability to quickly identify opportunities and address them. Our son has just sat his SAT, and feels very positive about it... so we will see! Kathy comes highly recommended.

Great tutor
I am so happy that I found a tutor who is patient, soft-spoken and kind. I think my daughter will slowly improve once she believes in herself and doesn't freeze up during a test.

We really like her, even though she is a little far from where we live. But the drive is worth it!

Kathy is terrific! She has been working my daughter since late last year trying to get her grade up. My daughter loves working with her. She is patient, knowledgeable and skilled in instruction. Since Kathy has started tutoring my daughter in math, she has brought up her grade two levels.
