Bio

Even though I teach Science at the college level, I always enjoy one on one interactions with high school or college level students, where I can help that person achieve the goals and successes they desire. Most people just lack the confidence, and I so enjoy watching them gain confidence and achieve what they want to.

Even though I teach Science at the college level, I always enjoy one on one interactions with high school or college level students, where I can help that person achieve the goals and successes they desire. Most people just lack the confidence, and I so enjoy watching them gain confidence and achieve what they want to.

I have a broad education with a degree in Chemistry, minor in Math, and a PhD in Biology, so I think this can help me integrate subjects for the student to both engage their interest and find a starting point of strength for them. Students generally comment they find my explanations very clear, with many real life examples, that really helps them to understand the important concepts. I actually work hard at this, to make sure to explain the subject several different ways so that the student can grasp the material well.

One of my main objectives as well is to increase the "academic muscle" of any student I help, so that they are more confident in their own abilities as they move forward, and can make real progress toward their goals.

I teach open access college freshman, no entrance requirements. I see students come in ill prepared to do college work, and have worked very hard to help them acquire the skills that will help them succeed in any career path they choose, so I have some idea of where they need to be as college freshman. I regularly transform freshman A&P students into nursing students (one of whom just informed me she is making an A in nursing school!) The secret ingredients are old-fashioned reading and essay writing skills, especially for this generation of student. They must train to increase their working memory, to begin to understand mastery of subject (rather than factoid memorization). I feel I could adapt my methods very easily to any age group by using the appropriate level study materials. Who better to prepare students for college, than a teacher who sees what is lacking in students and has demonstrated successes in helping them build study skills that will allow them to be successful in any career path?

I have taught College level Genetics and Molecular Biology for many years, and recently tutored a Medical Student in Genetics and Renal Physiology. She scored in the top 10% of her class based upon my help. I was able to coach her on the basics so that she could then understand the medical relevance of the genetics.

Fawz, 3 lessons with Kathleen

Super knowledgeable in genetics

Helped me solidify genetics topics covered in class. She’s super knowledgeable in the field and knows what types of questions to anticipate

Patient, Detailed, and Encouraging!

I had 3 sessions with Kathleen to prepare for my biochem exam. She was very patient and went through all of the material with me to make sure I knew the broad concepts before diving into the details. She was able to explain the "why" behind concepts and help me with problems I was having trouble solving. She also provided some of her own materials to augment my lecture notes which was very helpful. I was so appreciative of all her time and effort!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Kathleen is a great teacher, very knowledgeable, warm with a nice touch of humor. She was patient when I had a harder time with some chemistry problems. I highly recommend her!

Doing better with her help.

Kathleen tutored my husband in Anatomy and Phsyiology 101. During this time where we are online and teaching is through lectures recorded instead of live methods where students can support each other, she has been a gem. Our secret weapon to limit the stress of the class, as well as having a keen insight on lesson plans and study methods and strategy of studying, but knowing EXACTLY what to study and having a check-in to be sure the methods are working and get questions answered about the material really helps. Hubby is doing much better with a clearer understanding with her help.

Erica, 3 lessons with Kathleen

Creative tutor

she is an amazing tutor. very kind and helpful. I highly recommend her as a tutor. Honestly, she is kind, patient, and extremely good. She helped me in my writing assignment class she explain thoroughly using simple ways.

Aseel, 3 lessons with Kathleen

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Kathleen is very personable. She knows her material and breaks it down so I can understand. I am taking biology for the first and it's a lot of information to grasp. With Kathleen I am confident I will get a good grade in the class!

Addia, 5 lessons with Kathleen

Great teacher!😊

Reviewed some practice questions together.Discussed our next study sessions,and what kinda strategies we will be using to better help me understand,and memorize.
