Hi, I'm Katelyn! I graduated with Honors from the University of Michigan-Flint with a B.S. in Chemistry and dual minors in Environmental Science and Business. I have been in teaching, tutoring, and mentoring roles for more than a decade. My students have ranged in age from four to sixty-five, and have been of all cultural backgrounds and abilities. My earliest teaching experience came from being a martial arts instructor for eight years. I gained experience in creating lesson plans, recognizing different learning styles, and adapting lessons to each student. I also collaborated with students and parents to develop goals, create plans, and achieve results in helping the students continue to feel motivated and gain self-confidence in their abilities.

In traditional academic settings, I have experience as a high school mathematics Teacher's Assistant, high school chemistry tutor, college General Chemistry Supplemental Instructor, and I have experience teaching study skills as well. Additionally, I have extensive experience with homeschooling curriculum and tutoring students who are home schooled. As a Teacher’s Assistant, I tutored students in Algebra I and II, as well as Pre-Calculus. I was assigned to help individual students who were struggling to understand the concepts being taught, and I assisted with providing more challenging materials for the students who were able to work ahead of the lessons. As a Supplemental Instructor, I facilitated group study and exam review sessions for students. I also created worksheets and study guides to align with lesson plans.

During my roles as a chemistry tutor and Supplemental Instructor, I developed a problem-solving strategy that can be applied to nearly every subject. In this strategy, I help students to identify the key information, determine what the question or problem is asking, pinpoint which elements we need to find to solve the problem, and devise a plan of attack based on the objectives that are being taught. My students have shown significant improvement in their grades, test taking abilities, and self-confidence after learning and applying this method of thinking.

I am always willing to help and go the extra mile for a student who is willing to try. Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you or help schedule a lesson! I look forward to working with you!
