About Katherine

I have worked as a teacher/coach for 11 years and have learned how important it is to be patient when presenting new material to a student. I returned to school to get my degree in chemistry and physics, with the goal of one day doing research related to renewable energy. For the past 2 years, I have made straight A's in all my classes, including biochemistry, modern physics, differential equations, multivariable calculus and physical chemistry. I have taken organic chemistry I and II and passed with an A. I truly enjoy teaching and love watching the people I tutor succeed.

One of the main problems I see with college is that the teaching staff is comprised primarily of experts, but not teachers. Both of my parents have a master's degree in education, and it is from them that I learned how to teach. Anybody can recite information, but teaching is more than just telling someone what to do. I focus on giving clear and simple explanations with lots of examples in order to solidify learning. I have found that I learn best when I have a lot of worked examples to refer to, and find that most of my textbooks have only 1 or 2 examples to work through. I also like to keep notes on each tutoring session in order to cater my style to each individual student, and will answer specific questions free of charge day or night for my regular clients.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Differential Equations

I passed this class with an A and have tutored 3 students, all of which passed the class. The methods for solving differential equations are also constantly used in physics, especially when solving Schroedinger equations.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken organic chemistry I and II and passed with an A. I have also taken advanced organic chemistry, and received a B+. The concepts learned in these classes are also reinforced in biochemistry, in which I also received an A.

Patient sweet and awesome!

Katherine knows what she is doing. She is excellent at explaining complicated topics in organic chemistry and makes the material look simple. I hated chemistry and now I have a positive attitude towards it. She makes drawings and explains every single detail, there's no question she couldn't answer. And on top of that, she is patient, sweet, and cares about your grade. I recommend her for people t
