About Katherine

Hello students and parents, I started my career as a professional architect. I have always enjoyed both mathematics and art and this was a way for me to have both in one career. While raising my children, I decided to switch to teaching mathematics and spent time going back to college and training for this new career.

I am fully licensed to teach math 6-12 in Virginia and I am continuing my professional development with additional graduate coursework. I have tutored 1:1 in a tutoring lab and in my community, as well as worked full time as a math teacher. I specialize in geometry and SAT (math / verbal) but have experience in all middle school mathematics and high school math up to trigonometry.

I would enjoy talking with you about how I can help you meet your academic goals.

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.

Praxis

Students wanting to enter the teacher licensure program are required to take praxis core tests prior to admission. These tests include english and math subject material. As a secondary mathematics teacher, I was required to take a similar english and writing test called the VCLA and the Praxis 2 test for high school math teachers to teach grades 6-12. As a licensed 6-12 math teacher, I am qualified to teach content on the core tests which is math content up to grade 9. I have successful tutored a student already that entered the program this year.

SOL

I taught math in the public school system for 2 full time years. My subjects were Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra Functions. The second year the test was changed in Virginia to a longer, more difficult test. I still achieved a passing rate of 78% which was way above the state average. I have also worked as a private tutor at a tutoring center, helping students with SOL preparation. They all have passed their tests.

Katherine has been fantastic with my 14 year old daughter. After only 2 sessions, my daughter feels so more comfortable in class and when doing her homework. She left her exam feeling confident about Geometry for the first time this year.
