About Katie

I am a recent graduate from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I studied biology with a minor in chemistry. With that, I am now working for a well known biomedical research lab in the Boston area. During my time at UNCG, I was a Dean's List student and I was employed by the University to tutor historically difficult classes in both biology and chemistry. During this time, I tutored well over 100 students for over 200 hours. I also became a CRLA Master certified tutor. I was also a TA in an introductory chemistry lab.

What sets me apart as a tutor is that I still think like a student, which makes me very good at explaining concepts in a way that the student understands. Along with that, I like to incorporate some study skills into my sessions as well, so that the student gets long term benefits from tutoring. I took AP Biology and AP Chemistry while in high school, and I also took their equivalents in college.

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 a degree in biology from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I've been tutoring biology for more than three years, with more than 200 students and over 1000 hours. I've tutored biology at all levels (high school and college) and also have experience preparing students for standardized exams such as MCAS, AP exams, and SAT subject tests. I have also worked in research labs ranging from invertebrate neurobiology, plant ecology, sea turtle conservation, fruit fly genetics, and now immunology.

Chemistry

I graduated with a B.S. in biology and a minor in chemistry from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I tutored for over 3 years for both high school and college students at all levels. I also have experience preparing students for standardized exams, including the AP test, ACS exam, and SAT subject tests. I also worked as a TA as an undergraduate where I was responsible for teaching a section of an introductory chemistry lab.
