About Katie

You need someone who is patient, calm and intelligent to help you excel when you're struggling. As a therapist, I can not only calmly/patiently help you learn new things, I can also help calm your anxiety about tests and feeling overwhelmed.

But I'm not just a therapist, I'm an experience teacher/trainer as well. IT department as both a technical instructor and a help desk analyst; I also supervise in both roles. I have had the opportunity to create and administer many classes for faculty, staff, and students and have even planned a two week "boot camp" session for new employees. I have taught couples classes and community classes for 4 years and always got rave reviews from my students.

I also love working with children and have 6 nieces and nephews ranging from 1-18 years! My communication and interpersonal skills have become honed through my study of psychology and my jobs in customer service. I want my students to have a great time, but efficiency is also very important to me so we don't waste our time or money!

The areas I am most excited to tutor are anything psychology or computer related (I am a certified Microsoft Office Expert, A+ technician, and Help Desk Analyst), public speaking, and anything in the sciences. However, I was a Biology minor and have always done exceptionally well in the sciences. I am proficient in many other areas as well and am more than willing to work with you to meet your needs and give you more information about my specific skill sets!

I hope to get to know you soon, let me know how I can be of service.

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.
