About Katherine


Bio

Hello! I am a junior at the University of Oregon where I am a physics major. I also work in a neuroscience lab where I study auditory cortex. Whether I am doing physics homework or working in Matlab to analyze data in the lab mathematical problem solving is part of my daily life. The highest level of math I have taken is multivariable calculus, and I received an A for both terms. Even though I am a science major I have been a writer my whole life, and I excel in writing and reading...

Hello! I am a junior at the University of Oregon where I am a physics major. I also work in a neuroscience lab where I study auditory cortex. Whether I am doing physics homework or working in Matlab to analyze data in the lab mathematical problem solving is part of my daily life. The highest level of math I have taken is multivariable calculus, and I received an A for both terms. Even though I am a science major I have been a writer my whole life, and I excel in writing and reading comprehension. I have taken a variety of English, Psychology, and Sociology classes at the University of Oregon and received an A in each class. Whether you are looking for someone to help you get a handle on math homework or to proofread your paper I am a versatile and dedicated teacher.

I have four years of TA experience; I co-taught acting classes for 2nd-5th graders before I had my own children. I also have one year of tutoring experience where I have mostly tutored Jr. high and high school math and science. I learned long ago in school that finding a way to relate material to your own life is key to finding an internal motivation to learn. I strive to connect lessons to each student’s life so that he/she becomes a self-motivated student who is excited to learn.

I am also a flexible and patient teacher. When I was young I hated math, and it was not until one high school teacher truly had compassion for me that I learned not only is math fun but a caring and patient teacher makes all the difference in the world. I encourage you to call and find out what kind of difference I can make for you and your student.
