About Katherine

I adjust my support to fit each student's individual goals and learning style. My summer students typically include college students retaking math courses, high schoolers doing advanced work to get a head start on the next year, and students preparing to take standardized tests including the ACCUPLACER, which is used to determine which course levels are available to incoming college students.

While I help my students get through their assignments, I build their understanding of the skills needed to complete their work and make school easier. Learning flexible strategies and underlying concepts is the key to building a solid foundation for future success. I am also available to answer questions between sessions via messaging. Please note that I offer test prep for those planning to take a standardized test and for students I work with during the semester, but I do not offer last-minute test prep for first time clients.

Helping students reach new levels of success is my passion! I have a B.A. from Smith College and have completed several graduate courses in education (including assessment and intervention). I have been tutoring full-time for several years, working with students ranging from middle school to graduate school. I look forward to working with you this summer!

I schedule summer sessions between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Monday through Friday. You can click on my schedule to view available time slots which reflects summer openings.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is sometimes a student’s first time having trouble with math. It marks a transition to more advanced math coursework to come. But algebra is just math with new terms and definitions! Let me help you demystify algebra and lay a solid foundation for future mathematics coursework.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 builds on the terminology of Algebra 1 and introduces topics like complex matrices, advanced graphing, and systems of linear equations. It’s easy to get lost in a sea of new terms. Let me help you demystify math and lay a solid foundation for future mathematics coursework.

Discrete Math

If your school offers discrete math, you are in luck! I have experience tutoring several students in discrete math, and it is one of the more lively topics of mathematics. Discrete math is grounded in real-world problems, which makes it relevant and fun. I can show you examples related to your interests (biology, business, puzzles, etc.) as we explore this fascinating subject.

Elementary Math

Math is my favorite subject to tutor, because there are so many ways to teach it! I like to relate math to whatever topic interests you (sports, shopping, games, business) and explain concepts in multiple ways until we find what works for you.

Statistics

I have experience tutoring probability and statistics at the high school and college levels. I can provide examples that are explained at your level so that you can understand what your teacher and textbook are trying to say. I can get you up to speed so that you can understand your problem sets and pass your exams.

Study Skills

My approach to study skills involves identifying goals, motivation, and strategies for making study sessions effective. No one wants to sit at a desk re-reading notes for hours, especially when it doesn’t give stellar results. Studying science isn’t the same as studying French, so why do we take the same approach? Let’s work together to find strategies that will produce results. I will help you set meaningful, measurable goals so that you can see your progress.

Can't say enough good things about this tutor — Katherine was a super knowledgeable IB math tutor. She was quick to figure out what my daughter needed to know, followed up on the lessons way beyond what we expected, and knew her material. My daughter left every lesson feeling a greater sense of understanding of difficult concepts. She was always very organized, professional, and accommodating. It can be difficult to find a math tutor for highe ...
