I have taught math, from 6th grade through pre-calc in Colorado high schools. I have also taught college Geology at Florida International University and Arapahoe Community College. I am currently teaching Earth Science, Astronomy and Meteorology at HCC Brandon. I also teach GRE and SAT prep at the university of South Florida.

I have been tutoring math since I was in 10th grade. I have worked with every type of child, from special education to gifted & talented. I have taught math, from 6th grade through pre-calc in Colorado high schools. I have also taught college Geology at Florida International University and Arapahoe Community College. I am currently teaching Earth Science, Astronomy and Meteorology at HCC Brandon. I also teach GRE and SAT prep at the university of South Florida.

Most of my students are high school algebra or geometry. Many good students find that their grade will drop when they enter geometry. However, with a little bit of help, they pull through and their grades go back up during algebra 2. I can help smooth out this transition, and keep grades up across the board!

I have a background in Math, Geology, and computers.

Great Tutor

Katie has been tutoring my daughter on trigonometry/precalculus for several months. She has done a tremendous job helping my daughter understand concepts that she was struggling with and her grades are improving. Katie also has helped my daughter gain confidence in test taking and organizing herself during the test so that she can complete the exam on time.

Huge help!

Katie is so great with my two girls. They both look forward to working with her and getting ahead in geometry. She explains things until they understand.

Linda, 30 lessons with Katie

Great Tutor

Katie has been working with my daughter for a month and has done a wonderful job. My daughter was already falling behind in her freshman math class and we wanted to get someone that could help every week with her. Katie has been so very patient and explains everything so that it is easy to understand. My daughter has gone from having a D in math to have a high B, we have been so pleased with Katie. I would recommend Katie as a tutor to anyone she will do a wonderful job with your child.
