Bio

Hi! I’m Kathy, but my students know me by HKat. I’ve been teaching in Montessori classrooms for 25 years and I love adolescents. I have a special affinity for working with younger adolescents. I understand their sensitivities and work to help each individual discover their strengths. My greatest joy is helping students get an AHA moment. I use a document camera with my students and I've found that this really helps with online learning.

Hi! I’m Kathy, but my students know me by HKat. I’ve been teaching in Montessori classrooms for 25 years and I love adolescents. I have a special affinity for working with younger adolescents. I understand their sensitivities and work to help each individual discover their strengths. My greatest joy is helping students get an AHA moment. I use a document camera with my students and I've found that this really helps with online learning.

I help students identify what they already know and coach them as they stretch into new areas and develop deeper understanding. I help students discover the why not just the how of problem solving. I practice an integrated approach to math studies as much as possible. Math is the language of the the sciences so it is imperative that students develop skills in math so that they can work and use those skills in science.

I enjoy helping students gain confidence. I believe that competence begets confidence, so practice is key. One important objective I have is to reverse any negative feelings that the young adolescent may have about math and science. I tell my students, “ A day without math is like a day without sunshine!”.

I show students how they can be problem solvers and that there always multiple ways to approach a problem. I've been teaching pre-Algebra, Algebra and Geometry for 25 years and have worked with high school students teaching Algebra II for several years as well as supported students to succeed on the math sections of the ISEE and SAT. I have also taught Integrated Physics and Chemistry in middle school and biology, chemistry and AP Environmental Science at the high school level. I have supported students with one-on-one coaching and tutoring as well as teaching an integrated curriculum throughout my career. I am a TX certified teacher as well as hold AMI certification at the Adolescent Level.

Before my teaching career I worked in research in molecular genetics for almost two decades. I understand biology from the perspective of working in biolo

Very thorough and professional

My son had an urgent, complicated bio lab report that needed to complete. Kathryn spent 2.5 hours with him, thoroughly explaining the concepts and helping him complete the report. She also followed up via email to ensure the report is actually complete the way it was supposed to be. I would highly recommend her to others.

Great Tutor

My son enjoys tutoring with Kathryn x2 weekly. He is learning a lot and has shown drastic improvement in his work as well with his grades. We are grateful to her.

Shama, 14 lessons with Kathryn

well prepared and patient

She was very flexible with setting up a time, punctual and well prepared. We would like to continue using her services for Algebra 2 tutorials. We look forward to future sessions.

Yve, 8 lessons with Kathryn

Very patient teacher

I was impressed how kind and patient she was with my 14 y/o granddaughter. She will probably need additional help but her lesson today was a very good start. It is hard to get a teenager to stay engaged after a long day at school but Kathyrn was able to do it!

Knowledgeable Chemistry Tutor

Kathryn taught Pre-AP Chemistry to my daughter. She liked her easy to understand method of tutoring. Appreciate Kathryn's flexibility with scheduling & her preparation of the topic ahead of the session.

Truly helpful with my Geometry and IPC. Helped me understand it way more

The Geometry class was awesome! My tutor helped me clarify things that were a bit confusing to me. I'm really happy with my lesson. My tutor was patient and pleasant. i'm looking forward to more helpful classes for this course.

Well prepared and very patient tutor!

Kathryn was very well prepared for our lesson, and I learned a lot in just one hour. She is very patient and understanding, making the learning process less stressful and more enjoyable. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great math/science tutor!
