About Kathryn

I'm Kathryn and I recently finished graduate school. I received my PhD in pharmacology and conducted research related to hypertension during my tenure at Boston University. During graduate school, I helped tutor students in my department and students from the dental school in pharmacology/biochemistry courses. Due to my education I have an expansive knowledge of biology, chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, and physiology.

Throughout the course of my undergraduate education, I conducted chemistry workshops for students in the general chemistry classes to facilitate the discussion of difficult questions and concepts. I also participated in community building programs where we helped foster an interest in science. During my time before graduate school, I tutored reading and math for Portland Public Schools for middle and high school aged students.

I have always enjoyed teaching and helping others understand difficult concepts. There is nothing better then when someone has that lightbulb moment where everything clicks. I have spent the past 10 years tutoring on and off in a variety of subjects, but mostly in math and science.

I have taken numerous math courses throughout my education from basic algebra and geometry to calculus and differential equations to statistics. I have always excelled at math and enjoy passing on my enthusiasm for math to others.

I have tutored college level chemistry and graduate level pharmacology/biochemistry courses. I have taken dozens of science classes throughout my education.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Pharmacology

I received my PhD in pharmacology from Boston University. I have tutored graduate students in pharmacology for the past 4 years. I have covered basic pharmacological concepts like the volume of distribution and pharmacokinetics to mechanisms of action for specific drugs/drug types.
