About Kate

I am a highly accomplished National Board Certified Teacher with a Masters in Education. My teaching philosophy is focused on having a growth mindset - effort leads to achievement, and I am here to help you with reaching your education goals. I love working with people, sharing my enthusiasm for learning, and helping students build a bridge towards mastering challenging material.

With over a decade of teaching experience at the high school and college-level, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with thousands of students, enabling them to reach farther than thought they could. I know how to work with diverse learners in order to tailor instruction for the individual. My expertise is in the physical sciences - chemistry and physics, but I also keep up on coursework in biology, environmental science, and health sciences.

My undergraduate degrees are in chemistry and physics, and I have conducted research and completed graduate coursework in advanced inorganic chemistry. In college and graduate school, I tutored and worked as a teaching assistant in various chemistry and physics courses. While working as an educator, I have taught introductory chemistry, physics, and biology as well as AP level chemistry and environmental science. My AP students have overwhelmingly earned 4's and 5's on the AP exam.

When I work with you, I will make sure you get individualized instruction. I know that learning can be really hard especially science courses like chemistry. I truly believe everyone can learn science and math when it's tailored for them. Maybe you can't understand a concept yet, but I will work with you to help you get there and put the pieces together.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I have taught high school college-prep biology as well as AP Environmental Science. In high school, I earned a 5 on the AP Biology examination. I ranked in the top 5 in my state's Science Olympiad competition for events in cell biology (14th at nationals), epidemiology (10th at nationals), astronomy, and scientific problem solving. I have completed post-baccalaureate coursework in anatomy & physiology, microbiology, and pathophysiology.

Chemistry

I have a bachelors degree in chemistry, conducted undergraduate and graduate level research in chemistry, and completed advanced graduate coursework in inorganic chemistry. I am a National Board Certified Teacher in the field of Adolescent and Young Adult Science - Chemistry. I have taught and/or tutored chemistry to high school students and college students since 2001.

GRE

I have taken the GRE General Exam twice (in 2004 and 2015). I earned scores of 164 verbal reasoning, 165 quantitative reasoning, and 5.0 analytical writing on the 2015 exam. I am well versed in preparing students for standardized tests in my role as an educator.

ISEE

I am well prepared to tutor student in ISEE prep given my Master's in Education and experience as an educator over the past decade. I am highly skilled at teaching critical thinking techniques and quantitative reasoning, which are necessary to excel on the ISEE exam. Additionally, I have tutored students preparing to take the ISEE exam as well as taught students who have successfully gained entrance to schools based on their ISEE performance.
