I am a full time tutor for mathematics, computer science, Spanish, SAT, ACT, PSAT, and college prep. I am a proud graduate of Williams College, where I studied computer science and mathematics. I’ve tutored for over 8 years and enjoy working with students both in-person and online. I have substantial online tutoring experience on Wyzant, Varsity Tutors, and other online platforms. I am also available for in-person tutoring sessions.

Previously, I worked for IBM and a number of technology start-up companies. I also have research experience in computer science and mathematics. As a tutor, my main objectives are to help my students feel confident and ensure they fully understand the concepts and can solve problems on their own. I’m committed to helping my students be successful whether it be in the classroom, in their day to day jobs, or in a new passion or hobby.

My students can count on me to help them to complete their assignments, to review course material and/or concepts, or to revise past quizzes/tests to confirm concepts are mastered.

From English to Spanish, Algebra to Calculus, or for Computer Science related concepts/courses, I am here to help make the confusing and difficult topics more manageable. To me, there is no greater feeling of success or accomplishment than when you help someone understand a concept they were previously struggling with. I strive to help my students gain confidence and feel more comfortable with any topic they come to me with.

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!

Encouraging and patient

She help me with Geometry. I've been out of high school over 40 years and she gave me tools that is helping. I will definitely contact her for additional help. I was appreciative of her patience.

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.

Shawna, 6 lessons with Katherine

Knowledgeable and positive!

Katherine helped me out with Python today and it was obvious that she has an extensive knowledge of the Python language and she was a very positive tutor. I would not hesitate to book another lesson with her!

Star 4 - Katherine (Great session)

Katherine worked me on a few Python commands. We reviewed how to use python with a dictionary, for loop, sort and list. Katherine is knowledgeable, tailgated and thorough. I recommend Katherine for your Python tutoring needs.

Cynthia, 1 lesson with Katherine

Very supportive and Encouraging Tutor

Katherine was great working with me on developing a solid strategy for attempting different coding challenges. We walked through a few problems where she helped me to break down exactly what was being asked in the questions so that I could have a better understanding of how to proceed. She knows her stuff!
