I worked for eleven years at Munster High School, as an instructional assistant, tutoring and teaching math and other subjects, primarily to students with learning disabilities and/or emotional disabilities. I am very good at finding ways to reach students and help them understand. I recently graduated from Purdue University Calumet with my Bachelor's in mathematics with an emphasis in physics.

I worked for eleven years at Munster High School, as an instructional assistant, tutoring and teaching math and other subjects, primarily to students with learning disabilities and/or emotional disabilities. I am very good at finding ways to reach students and help them understand. I recently graduated from Purdue University Calumet with my Bachelor's in mathematics with an emphasis in physics.

Being a "seasoned" college student, I have taken many classes (engineering, programming, chemistry, philosophy) and also have valuable life experience. I have been honored to be a mentor to many students over the years. I believe that everyone can be a success and that the only time you fail is when you quit. I enjoy opening students' minds to the idea that math is cool and conquerable!

knowledgeable and great tutor!!

Kay taught me Intergraded Math. I like how Kay completely explains everything and I can comfortably ask questions. I reviewed my intergraded math course lessons with her during the times when I did and didn't have math. It's helped me to the point where I've reviewed an A in my intergraded math 3A course during the summer.

Great Tutor

Kay is a great at tutoring. She has helped my daughter in act and math. My daughter feels more confident in both now, thanks to Kay. She is friendly and very reliable.

Michele, 4 lessons with Kay

Very Knowledgeable, Patient, & Understanding.

This was my first ever utilizing a Tudor. But because of Kay, it was possibly the best decision I've made yet. She's the kind of person that you meet for the first time and it like you've known her your entire life.
