About Cathy


Bio

Hi, my name is Cathy and I am a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. I have 1 year of tutoring experience which I did through the university my sophomore year, and 15 years of experience constantly tutoring my younger brother. During my time tutoring, I taught Calculus, Biology, and Statistics to freshmen at UPenn. I enjoyed my experience so much that I want to continue to teach other students to help develop the skills that they already have, as well as provide new perspectives...

Hi, my name is Cathy and I am a recent graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. I have 1 year of tutoring experience which I did through the university my sophomore year, and 15 years of experience constantly tutoring my younger brother. During my time tutoring, I taught Calculus, Biology, and Statistics to freshmen at UPenn. I enjoyed my experience so much that I want to continue to teach other students to help develop the skills that they already have, as well as provide new perspectives to the material that might help them learn better.

I love learning and teaching subjects in STEM, and I hope to bring that to the table when I'm tutoring. I have had the privilege of being taught by passionate teachers and professors throughout my lifetime, and I would love to have a similar impact on my students, encouraging them to pursue STEM with similar gusto!

I've had times when I struggled with calculus, so I know how frustrating and difficult it can be to learn the skills. However, I've taken 1 year of pre-calculus, 2 years of college-level calculus (AP in high school and MATH104 at Penn), earning A's in each class. During my sophomore year, I had 5 different calculus students, all of whom have told me they have done considerably better than they thought they could with my help. My strategy is to tailor the learning experience to each student, focusing on building a strong foundation before moving on to the trickier concepts. Additionally, I like to get a feel for how their teachers are presenting the materials in class, as well as how the standardized testing presents their problem sets. This way, students can really apply what they are learning to the material they will encounter.

The sciences have always come naturally to me, and I love learning and teaching them. Throughout my time as a student at Penn I have helped my classmates work through problems. I've had 2 Biology students when I was tutoring at Penn, and I will always bring my energy and passion for science when tutoring my students.
