Welcome, it is my great pleasure to give you an educational experience that has been proven over and over in different cultural backgrounds and different levels. I currently tutor adults seeking their high school diploma and students in grades first through twelth grade. I have taught individuals from Cambodia, Puerto Rico, India and Jamaica. I have the unique ability due to my social work background to understand my student’s needs and tailor their tutoring to meet their specific needs. I have successfully helped special need students become mainstreamed into regular classes. I work with schools and education coordinators when necessary. I am asked by former parents to help their students even when they have moved to other states. During the summer, I contract with area counties to work with their summer programs to prepare students for the next school year. I am confident that my skills can be an asset to you and you child/ children.

My method of tutoring is to first find out what the students knows through an initial evaluation done in a unique child friendly way.They may not be aware that they are being assessed. Next, I let the student tell me what they do not like about the subject we are working on and then show them fun and interactive ways to make the subject enjoyable, while they are learning. Once the fear of the subject have been exposed and eliminated, teaching them the techniques to successfully solve and locate the answers to math concepts can be easily achieved. Not only will your child love learning but the joy you will see in your child will also bring you joy as well. My tutoring will enrich your life.
In summary, I am multi-faceted, efficient and a reliable educational professional with 20+ years of experience in working with adults and children.

Elementary Math

Elementary math is just that -- elementary -- once you learn the connections/relationship between one concept and another. For example, to find an answer for a division problem, look for the multiple of the numbers. This type of technique gives students the confidence they need to tackle any math problems by breaking it up into smaller components that they recognize. Then math can truly be elementary.

Learning math is like connecting pieces of a puzzle. To see the big picture correctly all the pieces must be in their proper place. Algebra is just a component of the puzzle. I will help you find the proper place where it belongs so that you will see how it connects to lower and upper math concepts. Let's connect these pieces together.

Top notch tutor! Patient and encouraging

Katrina has been a great asset to my son’s learning team. She is so patient and encouraging which has done wonders for his self esteem. Her different writing tools make learning fun and broaden his vocabulary at the same time. He gets so excited when his work gets “published” on the writing website. You can tell she truly has a passion for teaching kids. I highly recommend Katrina for any age group.

Amazing!!

Katrina tutors my 7 year old twins who are having a hard time staying focused and keeping up with virtual learning. They are excited to see her every time and anxious to learn. She makes the lessons fun yet challenging. Katrina has great energy and presence. She somehow manages to keep my usually hyper, easily distracted children grounded and focused for an entire hour, even after a long day of school. I would definitely recommend her.

Extremely intelligent and unbelievably kind tutor

This woman was phenomenal. She taught me and my son 9 weeks worth of Algebra in 3 hours. She explained things in a way that opened both our eyes. My son didn't think he could do it and she showed him he could. He made an A on his midterm because of her. I am so grateful. She is the best!!!!

MICHELLE, 1 lesson with Katrina

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

First time using Wyzant online...I would highly recommend Katrina. She immediately responded to our last minute request and our session was scheduled for the same day. My son was very thankful for Katrina's help, patience and knowledge in Algebra 2. He felt very comfortable working with Katrina as she explained the math concepts where he understood. Thank you Katrina and we look forward to working with you in the future.
