About Kate

For more than 20 years I have tutored various students and prepared teaching aids for teachers in different disciplines. I am a MD and have worked with students and teachers of different background and enjoy sharing my knowledge and expertise in various science related subjects.

I recognize that each student prefers different learning styles and techniques as they have different difficulties whether it is comprehension, improving scores in certain subject areas or overcoming anxiety with the material. My background and experience in the medical field and teaching has played an extensive role in tutoring those students with patience, perseverance, positive reinforcement and delivering complex material in simplified ways to enhance their learning process and succeed in their endeavors.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have successfully tutored English as a second language to a number of students who were unable to understand or speak English. I am proud to say that my students are now able to work in a professional capacity utilizing their English language skills.

Pharmacology

I studied Pharmacology as a premed student and then for four more years in Medical school. I also worked with a professor who needed help with pharmacology lessons and teaching aids for the university that he worked for. I have taught pharmacology to students who went on to get their medical licensing in the United States to practice medicine.
