About Kathleen


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?

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.

Kathleen is making chemistry much more understandable!!

My son is less intimidated with chemistry now. He has the confidence to ask questions and explain what he is doing. This would not have been possible without Kathleen!

Robin, 10 lessons with Kathleen

Knowledgeable, Patient, Thoughtful, Attentive tutor

Ms. Kathleen taught my daughter AP Biology. She was very helpful in providing her with clear understanding of the concepts and boosting her confidence. She also helped with improving her study techniques. I wish we met Ms.Kathleen earlier! Will definitely use her services again - 6 lessons

Suma, 12 lessons with Kathleen

Intelligent tutor!

Kathleen is very helpful when teaching chemistry. She definitely knows what she’s talking about. She’s help me a lot already with conversion and understanding things.

Christy, 6 lessons with Kathleen

This tutor really knows her stuff

Kathleen is tutoring my daughter in college level biology and chemistry. They had a great first lesson. To quote my daughter "She really knows her stuff!" She traveled to campus for the tutoring session which helped my daughter immensely.

Wendy, 2 lessons with Kathleen

absolutely amazing!

What a breath of fresh air! This tutor “gets” it. We left lesson feeling encouraged and hopeful. We will definitely use Kathleen again!

Melissa, 7 lessons with Kathleen

Helpful Chemistry Tutor

Since school started, my daughter has been complaining about her lack of understanding in chemistry class. After her first lesson with Kathleen, my daughter said that Kathleen was very helpful with her explanations.

Donna, 1 lesson with Kathleen

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

She showed me how to be confident in myself. She's very patient and will walk you through every step. Excellent tutor

Logan, 3 lessons with Kathleen

So far so good!

Kathleen is tutoring me in biology and she does a great job with explaining a lot of the learning objectives to a certain degree where I actually understand what she's trying to say. I don't feel incompetent either and with her lessons she has great stories to go with them that gives me a clear visual.

Nikita, 4 lessons with Kathleen

Extremely knowledgeable and patient!

Kathleen was awesome. Her knowledge of the material coupled with her patience, brought out a confidence in my son that I had not seen before. I highly recommend and will continue to use her services. Thank you Kathleen!
