Very Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

Overall Kathrine, is a very patient and knowledgeable tutor who offers one on one instruction as well as guides you through all of the steps of a problem and how to solve it. I came to her with a JAVA project and she showed me her thought process on how to build it. Also she offers very reasonable rates. Overall I give Kathrine 5 out of 5 stars.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Very knowledgeable and patient tutor. Katherine was so helpful in making sure that I knew the steps that I needed to take to complete my python assignment. Not only did she teach me the steps that I needed to take but why. I very much appreciate her taking the time to assist me with python. I am not the best at programming language but she made it easy for me to understand.

Helpful and kind tutor

Katherine taught me problem solving skills in python coding language. I liked the way we worked together and taught me the meaning behind the error messages. Thank you Katherine for working with me and all the time you gave! Super sweet and kind person!

AMAAZING TUTOR!

Katherine taught my Daughter so much about the "little things" involved with math and problem solving. My Daughter loved her patience. kindness and intelligence. Thought provoking questions were used to determine what my Daughter knew and why. This was an amazing session and we are absolutely going to set a consistent schedule to solidify and improve my daughter's math knowledge and comfort. Thank you Katherine!

Excellent and Knowledgeable Tutor

Really took her time to not only impart her knowledge in a clear and simple manner, she additionally went out of her way to really motivate and boost my daughters self-esteem. It was a really good session and we plan on using her many more times!

Truly Patient and Encouraging

I was having a hard time with my Java assignment. I was not at my 100% that is for sure. Katherine was so patient and encouraging. Even I was irritated sometimes, but she helped me get through it. We really need more tutors like this. Patience is a virtue and not all have it, no matter how much they think they do. I would definitely recommend Katherine if you are stuck, she can help. I know I will!

Katherine has an amazing teaching talent. She is able to break things down simply and efficiently for feasible comprehension. I highly recommend Katherine for beginner programmers!

Krystal, 2 lessons with Katherine

MY FIRST AND BEST PROGRAMMING TUTOR

Very friendly and relatable and the assignment carefully. As well as helping me to understand what is going on and how the code works rather than simply doing the assignment for me or giving the answers. I actually understood the reason behind a few codes. Definitely booking for another lesson-lab.
