About Katherine

I attended a rigorous high school and received excellent scores on my SATs and ACTs. Standardized test-taking did not come naturally to me at first, so I have first-hand experience in studying for these tests and improving one's test-taking strategies. I graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University, and received my Masters in Music at the Royal College of Music in London, where I studied vocal performance (opera).

In addition to tutoring students in preparation for school classes and standardized tests, I can also help in the college application process, offering advice and proofreading/editing for application essays. I am also happy to edit and offer my suggestions for improving high school and college-level papers of any length.

I can work in person and online, and my schedule is generally pretty flexible. If you are interested in remote proofreading or editing services, I can give you comments on your writing within 24 hours, or sooner if you need.

It's time to unlock your academic potential!
