About Katherine

I have a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry and over 30 years of industrial experience. My undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Mathematics and Chemistry. I tutor high school students in High School Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, Pre-AP Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Algebra I and II. I tutor college students in College Chemistry, General Chemistry, Analytical, and Organic Chemistry, and have tutored graduate students in synthesis and spectroscopy.

I have taught both General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry at the College level and can provide expert instruction in all areas of Chemistry.

If you need help writing lab reports, or reports in general, I am an extremely good editor and writer. As an avid reader, I have a sense of the rhythm and flow that should be present in written assignments, as well as the tone. I have written many technical papers and have worked professionally as an editor/writer to convert technical papers written by authors for which English is a second language. I have also edited many term papers for high school and college students.

For online tutoring, I have a Wacom tablet, which enables me to write quickly and clearly using the Wyzant whiteboard, or, if you prefer, we can use Skype and I can screen share Windows paint as the whiteboard. I have had great success using online tutoring to present concepts and solutions to problems. This is particularly important in Organic Chemistry, which is almost pictographic in nature, but also important for general chemistry and mathematics. I can tutor individuals or groups and have flexible hours. I have well over 1000 hours of online tutoring experience. Please contact me for more information; I'm eager to help you in chemistry, math, or writing.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from Texas A&M University

Organic Chemistry

I have a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from Texas A&M University (1984) and have taught Organic Chemistry at Texas A&M. I'm currently tutoring several organic chemistry students online.

Writing

I'm an avid reader, and a natural-born editor. I've written numerous papers, and have edited many papers and lab reports.

Fantastic Tutor!

I am an older student struggling with chemistry. Katherine has been able to assist me with a practical approach and giving me the tools I need to succeed and prepare for my classes and school deliverables. I highly recommend her!
