About Kathryn


Bio

I have over 35 years of experience teaching all levels of math from high school Algebra I and II to Calculus as well as Engineering Statics and Dynamics. I loved every minute of teaching for each of those years. Now that I am retired, I miss working with students, so I have decided to tutor face-to-face but online. My students had extremely high success rates (and I was not an easy grader). Their success and reviews were the foundation of the teaching awards I received from my local...

I have over 35 years of experience teaching all levels of math from high school Algebra I and II to Calculus as well as Engineering Statics and Dynamics. I loved every minute of teaching for each of those years. Now that I am retired, I miss working with students, so I have decided to tutor face-to-face but online. My students had extremely high success rates (and I was not an easy grader). Their success and reviews were the foundation of the teaching awards I received from my local college, my state and ultimately my selection as the CASE/Carnegie U. S. Professor of the Year for Community Colleges.

My Engineering PhD was Interdisciplinary and enabled me to bridge the gap between the education theory and cognitive engineering views of the learning process. Combining all these complementary, yet diverse, areas of expertise, and my training as an engineer to be a a fixer, I will do whatever it takes to help a student be successful. Students have told me that my many nominations are because I obviously love teaching and work so diligently to help them.

I have taught Beginning and Intermediate Algebra (equivalent to Algebra I and II in high school), College Algebra, Trigonometry, Precalculus, Calculus I and Engineering Statics and Dynamics for decades! My three degrees are all in engineering and that knowledge helps me to explain math theory in practical terms. You may only need to have a brief question answered, which I will be happy to do. However, if you feel you need long term help throughout a semester, I would like to teach you not only the math but also help you determine the best strategies for you to learn, study and take tests so that you would, hopefully, not need a tutor in your next math or engineering classes.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I would be pleased to work with you to improve your math skills, find more effective and efficient study and test taking strategies, and provide advice for achieving your math or engineering degree.

GRE

GRE

Having taken the GRE myself and worked with many, many students who took the GRE, I feel confident I can prepare you for the GRE calculations and logic. In addition, I can help you with test taking strategies and ways to prepare for the testing of your stamina as you sustain a high level of mental awareness throughout the testing time.

My experience with all levels of algebra, both high school and college, will help me to help you understand what you are currently doing and better prepare you for what you will do in the future. I will work with you to help you see all the steps and procedures and to understand them as well as apply them. I can cut through all the theory and present it in the way you prefer.

Incredible tutor, a real find!

Kathryn helped my daughter with college trigonometry, who was thrilled with Kathryn’s ability to explain difficult concepts and make them easy to understand. She is very knowledgeable with advanced material. Kathryn is friendly and a wonderful tutor…..so glad she could help us!

Excellent teacher

Kathryn, connects with my son and adjusts her teaching methods to fit the best approach to his learning. He's growing more confident in his knowledge with each session, and she is invested in him. Thank you Kathryn!
