Hi! I'm Teacher Katie. I have over a decade and a half of private, in-person tutoring experience, and I'm excited to bring my love of teaching to Wyzant and connect with students all over the world! I graduated at the top of my high school class, and from there went to Duke University on scholarship for a bachelor's degree in mathematics. At Duke, I was exposed to some of the best university professors in the world, who helped set my standards for my own teaching. During my time there I was employed by the math department to tutor other students, and continued this into my own career as a private tutor for years.

In my career as a tutor, I've worked with pre-K children, in-school students for public and private schools, home-schooled and unschooled students, college students, all the way through people prepping materials for their PhD's. I love getting to know the unique way each student approaches learning, and meeting the student where they are today to get to where they want to be tomorrow. Whether it's test scores, study skills, or deep retention that's needed, each student can be inspired by a deep one-on-one connection with the right teacher. For hundreds of students, I have been that teacher, and hope I can be for you!

Though I've taught comfortably in large classrooms, my favorite form of teaching is one-on-one, which is why I love platforms like Wyzant. Thanks to the powers of the internet, this one-on-one connection can span the globe! I'm a big believer in accessing the best of technology and tools for the job. If needed, I will work with you to find additional videos, apps, websites, online or printed textbooks, and other resources that can supplement your studies most effectively.

I'm also a home-schooling mom, and thus it's a matter of parental interest, as well as professional interest, that I keep up with the latest research based methods and techniques in education. I'm always on the look out for new information about best practices to bring home to my child, and extend to my online classroom. I believe strongly in gamification methods, seeking the personal intrinsic motivators of each student, and retention through spaced repetition.

Because tutoring is my full time job, I have my own classroom space set for online and in person lessons, with many reference textbooks, a whiteboard, and demonstration tools and props, which will ensure a professional, engaging environment.

My love of learning has led me to be proficient in a variety of subjects, but my first love will always be mathematics. I know that many students struggle with this subject and develop many emotional blocks. "Math anxiety" is a real thing, but it can be overcome. I am patient and encouraging, and believe we can make extraordinary breakthroughs.

Whether you're a parent looking for a good tutor for your child, or an individual seeking to deepen your understanding, I'll make sure I work with you to understand you or your child's needs and meet them.

Let's start the path to success! I can't wait to work with you!
