About Kathy


Bio

I enjoy helping students to become more competent and confident in math. During tutor sessions, I focus on the student's homework. With my guidance, the student will learn the material and finish their homework! If supporting math skills are missing, I can provide mini-lessons while we work on the homework.

Explains Throughly

I am learning Pre-Calculus and Ms. Kathy helps me by making sure I understand the problem before I move on. I go through extra problems with her and she explains them more simply than my teacher does.

Kathy has been helping out 14yo with TSI test prep (comprehensive) and our 11yo with pre-algebra and we couldn’t be happier. She’s helping both immensely.
