About Katie


Bio

I have always enjoyed helping others learn. I started tutoring and teaching when I was in high school, and I've never looked back! I attended the University of Notre Dame and graduated in 2011 with a 3.5 GPA and a double major in Mathematics and International Peace Studies. After graduation, I taught upper-level math courses at a high school. (My favorite was AP Calculus!) I realized my passion was working one-on-one with students though, so I left teaching to become a full-time private...

I have always enjoyed helping others learn. I started tutoring and teaching when I was in high school, and I've never looked back! I attended the University of Notre Dame and graduated in 2011 with a 3.5 GPA and a double major in Mathematics and International Peace Studies. After graduation, I taught upper-level math courses at a high school. (My favorite was AP Calculus!) I realized my passion was working one-on-one with students though, so I left teaching to become a full-time private tutor.

I specialize in tutoring students in mathematics (pre-algebra, algebra I and II, geometry, precalculus, calculus 1 and AP calculus AB, college algebra) and GED math prep. I can also tutor beginning Spanish! In addition to teaching experience, I have over a decade of tutoring experience with various companies including Kumon, Sylvan, and Upward Bound as well as hundreds of private students both in person and online.

I love tutoring and teaching, and I look forward to working with you to help you achieve your goals. I specialize in helping students build confidence in math and their ability to do hard things. I have a relaxed and warm personality, and I am able to foster an environment where students feel safe to try, make mistakes, and truly learn. Learning and helping others to learn is my passion and I look forward to sharing that with you.

I tutor online or in North Portland only.

And, a little about my self, I live in North Portland. I grew up in Minnesota, but I've lived all over the country. I love yoga, gardening, hiking, making music, hanging out with my dog, and teaching.
