About Katherine

I am a cancer immunology and biotechnology specialist with a passion for tutoring! I would love the chance to help you understand your science courses. In 2013 I completed my B.S. with a 3.98 major GPA. As a pre-med student, I took the MCAT and scored a 14/15 on the biological sciences (biology and organic chemistry) portion. I am now a master's candidate at Columbia University, where I have received a 4.0 in my first two semesters.

Aside from school, I have used stem cells to study disease in a lab at UCSD School of Medicine. After graduation, I worked on a clinical trial that used genetic engineering to make patient's own cells attack their cancer!

I have tutored for about two years now, and have found that it is a passion of mine. I have been told that my explanations are straight-forward and comprehensive. Ultimately, I would love to help others find affinity for this field by showing them science from a new perspective.

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.

Genetics

I am qualified for genetics because I have taken upper division genetics at UCSD and received an A. I also have taken molecular biology and other relevant courses. Furthermore, I have experience with many molecular lab techniques in genetic manipulation, so I can provide real life examples. I love this area of biology, and I would be elated to help anyone master it!

Nutrition

I am qualified to tutor in Nutrition because I took a Metabolic/Clinical upper division Nutrition course at UCSD and received an A+. Nutrition is one of my favorite aspects of human physiology, and I would love the opportunity to tutor it!

Organic Chemistry

I completed the organic chemistry series at UCSD and the o.chem lab with straight A's. I love the subject, and found that it changed my approach to school as I believe a thorough understanding of organic chemistry is essential for future success in biology. I helped my roommate as a tutor for her last two quarters in Organic Chemistry and she was much more successful.

Best of the Best!

Katherine is a phenomenal tutor; I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with any kind of chemistry/biology-related course. She is very sweet, kind, patient, and I was very impressed with her knowledge of the subject (she helped me with Organic Chemistry-- I think that speaks for itself). Even though I was not within her driving distance, she suggested meeting up half way at a Starbucks
