I am an experienced math and chemistry tutor. I have helped high school students, college students and adults looking to upgrade their skills. My students rave about my friendly and helpful approach. I have taught high school math and also have worked as a chemistry instructor for basic chemistry through to advanced synthetic chemistry.

I enjoy tutoring and having once hated math and chemistry myself I know what students can be feeling. I once had a math teacher who wouldn't let me say "I'm just bad at math!", and after years of hard work and applying myself I realized that I am not bad at math, it just takes practice. In addition to personal experiences, my teaching and tutoring experience have given me insight into where students struggle and the best methods for helping them.

Please send me a message if you have any questions that I can answer!

I am not a "math person"; algebra never came easy to me. I have had to work hard at improving my math skills throughout my academic career. I had to teach myself the patience and study skills that courses such as Algebra require. I can teach these skills to you or your student. I taught high school math, including Algebra I. Good basic algebra skills are the foundation for so many other types of learning, it is crucial to master these skills for a successful academic career. After many years of hard work, I now love math. Having good math skills is an empowering feeling, and I love to help students reach their goals.

Superb Tutor

My daughter has always done well in school, until Honors Chemistry came along. Despite lots of studying and effort she struggled. Then we met Kate. My daughter looked relieved and happy after just one session. We will continue to use Kate to keep up the progress. Per my daughter she explains things clearly and simply.

Knowledgeable & friendly tutor for my sophomore daughter studying Chemistry

Kate helped my sophomore daughter study for her honors Chemistry class. She said Kate had a great way of teaching and she was very comfortable being around her. They met at the Oak Park library. I would recommend Kate!

Worked well with my daughter on AP calculus

Kate reviewed my daughter's skills and worked with her on some concepts. She was professional and effective in her interactions with my daughter. We will work with her again.

Knowledgeable and reliable.

Kate has explained chemistry concepts well and has helped my son where he has felt stuck. She is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject matter and always reliable when my son needs help.

A blessing!

My daughter has been struggling with chemistry all semester and the teachers and school tutoring wasn't helping. She was discouraged and frustrated. I hired Kate and after the very first session, my daughter had a look of relief on her face I hadn't seen in awhile. Kate has been able to explain things to her so that she actually understands it! I will continue to hire Kate with complete confidence.
