My name is Katie, I am a full-time math tutor, with over six years of experience. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Mathematics and a minor in Economics from the University of Arizona, where I completed CRLA's International Tutor Training Program. My passion for math and my strong belief that anyone can learn and engage with any subject, no matter their strengths or foundations, led me to help students who are struggling with math and who are looking to excel in class.

I believe my role as a tutor is to empower students to learn how to learn and be their guide as they connect the dots. Everyone can be successful in math if they only have the right teacher! I meet students where they are and then apply the best techniques that match their learning style and always keep students at the helm. This gives them the confidence to improve their performance. Students perform best when they meet with their tutor regularly, which is why I require my students to sign up for recurring sessions. I offer a free 15-minute orientation session to set goals and review expectations.

Over the last 6 years, I have tutored students in Algebra, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus and Calculus, working with students ranging from high school through college. I also worked as a certified math tutor at the University of Arizona's on-campus Think Tank tutoring program while in school. These experiences have sharpened my tutoring skills, techniques, and the effective use of the online white boarding platforms.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to working together on math! If you have any questions or would like to set up an orientation session, please reach out to me. I am easy to contact and provide fast responses.

best tutor ever

I truly can’t say enough good things about Katie! I used her for my Precalculus course for a pre-req for PA school after 8 years of not taking any math course. I’ve used tutors in the past but have never had one like Katie. She is incredible patient and kind and explains concepts so well. I really like how she would let me work through a problem and guide me to the right answers. She never just lectured me which I really appreciated. She is truly amazing and I actually looked forward to our sessions every week. I ended up getting an excellent grade in precalculus and learned to actually love math!

Knowledge Tutor

First session off to a great start! Katie is knowledgeable and patient. I’m looking forward to learning calculus concepts and feeling confident already. She explains concepts very well and goes over problems to help make it all make sense.

Another great session!

Katie and I went over adding fractions and finding the LCD of the denominator, tried different ways to solving the problem because the way my professor did it was confusing, how we did it made a lot more sense and I was able to understand it a lot as opposed to what my professor was doing.

Fantastic teacher very patient with me!

It was fantastic meeting Katie for our first session! She made my new material really easy to understand, and I was able to walk away from our session with a grim grasp on how to make sure the equation is undefined and to simplify as well.

Connects well/Inspirational

My daughter can be uncomfortable with others, however Katie has a way that made her feel instantly comfortable and she was able to make the lesson very enjoyable and valuable. We are very excited to have found her.

Friendly and Extremely Helpful

I don’t know what I’d do without Katie! I’m taking a college level Calculus course and I don’t understand anything until Katie explains it to me. She’s an absolute life saver and can tackle any problem.

Knowledgeable and patient

Kate, was great. Had problems getting on and she was patient and worked out the issues. My son thought she was very helpful and knowledgeable. We would definitely use her again if she has time!

Ratna, 7 lessons with Katie

Super helpful and patient

Katie has helped bring the grade level up from a D to an A....and maintain that A! Her personality and knowledge allow for an easier understanding of pre-calculus. We are super glad to have her involved.
