About Katrina

Hello! My name is Katrina. I'm experienced with elementary students since high school. I currently am a mentor for Northwestern University's Science club. The club is about helping and enriching elementary students about Science. Not only do I help them with their activities. I also help them with their homework in various subjects.

What I truly learned through the experience in becoming a mentor is that keeping the student engaged improves their learning. The activities we have done in Science Club gave me great ideas to keep students engaged. An activity we did to understand leavening agents were to cook pancakes. Not only did they love the process of cooking, but they could actually see things happen.

Also patience and being able to relate to the student is also important. For instance, Math can be hard in terms of just numbers, but if we apply it to things they like such as sports, dance, art, and maybe even cartoons. The students have a better method in storing the information.

I am very passionate about helping students succeed. I think it's something that is innate in me ever since I was young.
