I specialize in tutoring physics, mathematics, and astronomy. I can also tutor French, English, psychology, chemistry, and standardized test prep (SAT, ACT, GRE). In addition to tutoring, I can teach hatha, prenatal, restorative, and yin yoga as well as beginning piano lessons.

I graduated from the University of Chicago with dual masters degrees in physics and astronomy & astrophysics as all but dissertation. An Indiana native, I graduated with highest distinction and Phi Beta Kappa from Purdue University, where I double majored in honors physics and mathematics with a minor in psychology. I also took five quarters of collegiate French classes and eleven years of piano lessons plus three years of jazz band. I completed my RYT 200 Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at Fire Horse Yoga, Massage & Wellness in Jasper, IN, my Yin Yoga Teacher Training at Tree House in Indianapolis, and my RYPT Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training at Sweet Momma Yoga in Bloomfield Hills. I taught a Friday morning guided imagery meditation class for two years as part of the Twenty Minutes Still series at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel. Before moving to Michigan in August of 2018, I taught yin yoga and goat yoga at Studio You Yoga in Greenwood, IN.

This past academic year, I taught as mathematics, science, and French instructor at Brightmont Academy. I taught AP Calculus, Physics, Chemistry, Introductory Algebra, Earth Space Science, and French. I worked with middle school and high school students, who have ADHD, anxiety, autism, and athletic travel conflicts in a one-on-one instruction format with a mastery-based learning approach using the Apex Learning software. I accommodated my individual students’ interests and learning styles with empathy, patience, and creativity. Prior to that, I taught physics as an associate adjunct professor at the University of Indianapolis for two years. For the last three years, I have also taught online astronomy as an adjunct professor at Ivy Tech Community College.

In graduate school, I led discussion a

Great Teacher

Kat did a great job! She assessed my skills then went over problems to help answer my questions and to solidify them in my mind. I would recommend her to anyone.
