About Kaitlyn

Hello!

My name is Kaitlyn, and I am an engineer who graduated from Virginia Tech with a BS in Industrial and Systems Engineering and a BA in Economics with a 3.5+ GPA. While in college, I tutored 1-3 students a semester, mostly in business calculus. All of my students received a grade of B or higher, which I am quite proud of. While in high school, I also tutored classmates in various math courses.

I have been an active volunteer in the community, working with children to teach them about science concepts. I have experience working with children ages 10 and up, so I can work with those who are younger or those who are older and need assistance with more advanced coursework. While it is important to help the students get good grades, I also like to help them understand and enjoy the courses, and to draw connections between different classes.

I do work full time, but would be available during evening hours and sometimes on the weekends on a case by case basis.

I'd love to help you or your child succeed academically, be it in a school course or in preparing for an exam like the GRE. Please contact me if you are interested in working together.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have tutored HS math for the past 7 years and all students got As and Bs.

Algebra 2

I have tutored more than 5 HS math students and helped them achieve As and Bs on exams

Calculus

I have tutored calculus since 2007.

Econometrics

I have a B.A. degree in Economics. To obtain this degree, I took many economics classes, including Economics of Organizations (A), Analysis of Economic Data (A), Econometric Methods (B), and Statistics for Engineers (A). I obtained an overall GPA for my Econ degree of 3.7 and in Engineering of 3.6.

Linear Algebra

I have a BS in Industrial and Systems Engineering, which I obtained with an in major GPA or 3.6 and an overall GPA of 3.5. I took Elementary Linear Algebra class, which I got an A in. I also tutored students at Virginia Tech at our math lab in linear algebra for 2 years.

Mechanical Engineering

I have a BS in Industrial and Systems Engineering. While this isn't Mechanical Engineering, I took many similar classes, including Calculus 1 and 2, Linear Algebra, Vector Geometry, Multivariable Calculus, Physics 1 and 2, C++, CAD, Manufacturing Processes, Differential Equations, Intro to Materials Engineering, Theoretical Statistics, Statics, Dynamics, Operations Research, Statistics, and Electrical Theory. I graduated with an overall GPA of 3.5, and 3.6 in major (engineering).

Physics

I have tutored 5 physics students who have gotten As and Bs

Prealgebra

I have a lot of experience in tutoring math and working with children. I have tutored high school and middle school maths including algebra, geometry, statistics and calculus. I have also been working with children since I was a teenager, lifeguarding, babysitting, and volunteering for youth STEM programs. I like to help the children understand the concepts versus memorizing so that they can build a solid math foundation and problem solving skills to use throughout their math courses.

Precalculus

I have tutored calc and earlier maths for 10 years with all students getting A's and B's.

Statistics

I have taken many college level statistics classes while completing my Engineering degree including:
-Theoretical Statistics
-Statistics for Engineers
-Statistical Quality Control
-Analysis of Economic Data
-many other Operations Research classes
