My name is Kate. I hold a Master's degree in Engineering. I have tutored over 1900 hours on Wyzant's platform (at least 4,000 hours lifetime).

I did a lot of peer tutoring in both undergraduate and graduate school as my greatest hobby. I am also familiar with several online High School Math courses. I am good at adapting to different learning styles which I have researched extensively to help my career in Software Industries with my background knowledge of Engineering, and am confident that I will increase the rate of my students' academic success.

I have helped hundreds of students starting with Pre Algebra through Pre Calculus. My goal is to help any student understands the materials, and prepare for Math, GRE, SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, HSPT (Math Sections only) and other aptitude and achievement exams in order to obtain a desired result in a very short amount of time.

Thank you, Kate

Kate was so helpful in supporting my daughter this year in Pre-Calculus. I highly recommend her if your child needs assistance. Thank you, Kate :)

Sangeeta, 60 lessons with Kate

Very helpful

She helped me solve twice as fast and she’s a very excellent teacher!! If I had to do my HW alone I would have taken 3x as long and would not have understood anything.

Alia, 20 lessons with Kate

A great tutor who is extremely patient

I was having extreme problems in regards to online pre-calculus on edmentum. The "tutorials" that were given to me as lessons to learn those pre calculus topics were an enigma to me in the way they explained it and I was left with more questions than answers. Then I decided to get tutoring help from Kate and helped me a great deal! She was kind, patient and was willing to help me with problems I was confused on. She's a great teacher and 100% would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with pre-calculus.

Knowledgeable, Committed, and Patient Tutor

When my son was in first grade, a teacher told him that math is like brushing your teeth. It is something you have to do every day and it is something you can’t forget. Practice makes you better and the more you practice, the easier math gets. Just like brushing his teeth, my son works with Kate regularly. Kate has been a part of my 6th grade son’s learning for the last two years, meeting every Saturday morning at the library. Kate follows along with my son’s math curriculum at school, reinforcing what he has learned for the week and explaining problems that were not clear in the classroom. Her patience and commitment to helping my son is truly commendable. My son is a more confident test taker because of Kate. He achieves his academic goals for the year and Kate is instrumental in his math accomplishments. Kate is knowledgeable and is able to explain concepts clearly. Kate also helps my 9th grade son. Last year, she helped prepare my son for the High School Preparation Test. She is a great tutor for his Honors Algebra 1 class and will be helping him with Honors Geometry and SAT preparation soon. Kate is always a pleasure to work with. My sons used to ask me, “Why is Kate always smiling?” Kate is a happy and a pleasant person! She is helping both my sons reach their potential.

Very good geometry tutor

Thanks for the lesson for our daughter today. She liked the session. We think she is more clear now on the concepts.

Ron, 1 lesson with Kate

Great tutor!

Kate was very kind and patient. My daughter, who was not thrilled about having a tutor, was very happy after her session with Kate. Kate is very smart and easy to work with.

Declan, 12 lessons with Kate

AMAZING!!

Kate is an amazing tutor. She is patient, thorough, and explains the material in a way that’s easy to understand. My daughter had a D in geometry and since we’ve been working with Kate she now has an A. We feel so blessed to have found Kate and highly recommend her.

Lynn, 104 lessons with Kate

Amazing Tutor

We could not ask for a better tutor than Kate. She has helped my 10th grade daughter with Geometry and my daughter is thriving and so much more confident in her math skills. She even got 100% on her final Geometry exam! Kate tutors in a way that makes it easy to understand, she is thorough and extremely patient. She is punctual, reliable and we just love her!

Maddie, 83 lessons with Kate

I asked my son

I asked my son at the end of the session what star rating I should give. He said without hesitating - “give her a 5 dad.” Then he asked when can he have another lesson. Now that’s an effective tutor !
