Personalized Lessons With a Dedicated Tutor
I began tutoring younger students when I was in the eighth grade, and while it has not been my only line of work, I have since tutored a variety of ages and subjects for a total of twelve years. I will learn about you and evaluate your individual learning style, then I will create personalized, structured lesson plans, and we will work together to meet your academic goals.

I began tutoring younger students when I was in the eighth grade, and while it has not been my only line of work, I have since tutored a variety of ages and subjects for a total of twelve years. I will learn about you and evaluate your individual learning style, then I will create personalized, structured lesson plans, and we will work together to meet your academic goals. I am a very patient and encouraging tutor, and I have worked with a range of students, from those with learning disabilities to Honors and AP students. I absolutely love a challenge and will put not only my mind but my heart into your success!
My tutoring students have varied in age from five-years-old to adult. I have successfully tutored many subjects including Prealgebra and Algebra; Elementary Math, Eureka Math, and Math Concepts and Applications; English as a Second Language (ESL); Learning to Read and Reading Comprehension; Formal Essay Writing (expository, research, persuasive, literary, TDA, etc.) and Creative Writing (narrative, reflective, poetry, etc.); Vocabulary; Grammar; Proofreading/editing; Science; Social Studies; SAT, GED and HISAT (all subjects), SSAT, and ISEE preparation; Study skills; and Test-taking skills.
As for my education, I graduated Magna Cum Laude (High Honors) from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's degree in English. I also have Associate's degrees in Education and Psychology. Before that, I graduated high school with a 4.24 GPA while being one full grade level ahead in math, ELA, and science since the 8th grade.
Aside from tutoring, I have been an academic freelance writer and freelance editor, a substitute teacher for Horry County Schools, and am a wife as well as the mother of three amazing boys.

She is one of the best tutor that my kids had so far. She teaches writing to my kids who were getting 2/4 grades. Kids have been with her for couple of month and have started seeing grades 3/4 and many times 4/4. She is very plugged in with the progress of her students. She works with their teacher to come up with the plan. As a parent you don't have to worry about anything as she takes care of it. What a blessing. I liked her so much that started Math tutoring for my son with her. Believe me my kids like her too 😊Meeta, 123 lessons with Katherine

Katerine is helping my son with reading skills. He is excited to go see her every week. She is very motivating and gives my son feedback every class. I like it that she provides her own materials and that she is working on his reading and writing skills in general.ELine, 25 lessons with Katherine
Awesome writing tutor!
Katherine has helped my son tremendously with his cause and effect research paper. She got him to focus on the assignment and what it meant and helped him get his various thoughts into an outline form. She also guided him through writing his first "control", making him critically think his way through vice giving him the answer. My son is in high school but I would highly recommend her to anyone in any age group.Brooke, 15 lessons with Katherine
Today she helped with comprehension questions, and synonyms. She went over comprehension and helped my daughter, showed her ways how to read the passage carefully before answering the questions.Ronita, 82 lessons with Katherine
Exceptional and awesome!
Katherine tutored my G8 girl since last year. She customized lesson based on my daughter’s language level. I can see the great improvement on my daughter’s ELA across reading, writing and grammar. Katherine is hardworking and patient. She is so nice, responsible and my daughter loves her class very much.Cathy, 92 lessons with Katherine
Great tutor for my 8-year-old daughter!

Great editing and critiquing skills
Katherine was able to review my document and edit it so that reads with clarity and is grammatically correct. I love that she critiqued my topic so that I was able to see an additional point of view besides mine. This gives me additional consideration moving forward with my work. I recommend Katherine without hesitation!Marvin, 1 lesson with Katherine
