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.

Study Skills

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?

Absolutely Fabulous!

Excellent teacher, very clear, kind, and patient! Kathleen really helped me feel prepared and confident in the material and she was wonderful to talk to throughout the session! I look forward to working with her again!

Kathleen knows her stuff

Kathleen taught me plenty of useful things about Ecology that is going to be on my next test. She also connected it with life to make it easier to follow along. I look forward to learning more about Biology and raising my grade in the process!

Knowledgeable and helpful

It was our first session but my daughter was excited that Kathy was able to jump right in and help her with biology. Kathy made what is a difficult subject for her a little less stressful. Excited to see how their time together progresses.

Exceptional

Ap Bio - Kathleen made an enormous difference for my daughter. Her midterm grade is an A-! Originally, my child was anxious and struggling in this class (her grade was a C). As soon as Kathleen started with her, her grade and understanding popped. She actually likes ap bio now! It is truly unbelievable how much of a difference kathleen is making.

Kathleen is an outstanding tutor

Kathleen is an outstanding tutor. I am a medical student, and I was struggling with Physiology and Biochemistry as medical school is very fast paced and there is a lot of material to cover in such little time. I am glad that I reached out to her through Wyzant because she has extensive knowledge in both subjects. She explains each lecture in a thorough, concise, and clear way. She also emphasizes the most important details that I would need to know as a physician. My professors did provide practice questions to prepare for the upcoming exams and because its medical school, most of the exam questions are in the form of clinical vignettes. Whenever, I was confused on why the correct answer was the correct one, she would explain thoroughly why the answer was the best answer and what key details to look for in the clinical vignettes that would help me arrive to the correct answer. As I took the exam, I approached each question in the same manner, and this resulted in my exam grades increasing greatly. I am very pleased with her tutoring as I was originally doing very poorly in these subjects. I was happy with my final grades thanks to the outstanding job Kathleen did by tutoring me. My only wish is that I had hired her at the start of med school. I feel more confident in myself and I can explain the material that we went over very well to others. Anyone learning these subjects will extremely benefit from her tutoring. She is not only an amazing tutor but a very lovely person.

Excellent at Breaking Down Difficult Concepts!

Kathleen was very accommodating with my schedule considering I reached out for her help with preparing for my biochemistry final. I was very overwhelmed with the breadth of material I needed to know and she broke it down and made it easier to digest. I passed my biochemistry class with her help! She is great!

Hayley, 7 lessons with Kathleen

Amazing and patient tutor

Kathy was fantastic with my high school sophomore. Really getting him to understand biology in the virtual environment that he is in. She works so well with me and him in scheduling and improving his understanding of the material.

Niccole, 4 lessons with Kathleen

Excellent

Kathleen was excellent. She definitely knows biochemistry backwards and forwards. She was also very pleasant to talk to and didn’t make me feel terrible about not getting it.

Brooke, 2 lessons with Kathleen

Knowledge and well versed in many sciences

Kathy has helped me with Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, and Cellular and Molecular Biology. She is truly an amazing tutor and has great knowledge of all if these subjects. If there was a Wyzant top 1% club, she should be in it!
