About Katherine

I am an undergrad physics major at the University of Oregon. I am a 4.0 student, and a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society. My major is physics, but my passion is neuroscience and brainwaves. I currently work at the Wehr Lab where we study different structures in the auditory cortex of mice.

Before I had a passion for math I loved to write (I still do). I am a stickler for grammar, and because of that I am a great proofreader. Aside from academics I am a mother of two who loves to cook, hike, and read.

I have found that the key to learning is to find some way to relate to the material so you become personally motivated. Motivation and attitude are key factors in memory retention. As a tutor my goal is not just rote memorization, which works but will offer only a limited retention time, but to a find a personal motivation for every student so that true passion and learning may be achieved.

I aim to encourage students to find a way to take enjoyment in their lessons. This helps create a positive attitude about learning and studying which also effects memory retention and recall rates. I employ basic psychology to help make my tutoring sessions more enjoyable and more productive.
