About Katja


Bio

I taught introductory programming in Python at Carnegie Mellon University. I love coding in Python for artistic purposes which involves a lot of trigonometry and algebra. As a hobby I work with numbers in order to find patterns with integers and I enjoy doing mental math. I flip through textbooks solving problems to keep my mathematical mind working. I continue to study and think about physics. Besides this, I am an artist, which is how I make a living. Nonetheless, I love teaching math...

I taught introductory programming in Python at Carnegie Mellon University. I love coding in Python for artistic purposes which involves a lot of trigonometry and algebra. As a hobby I work with numbers in order to find patterns with integers and I enjoy doing mental math. I flip through textbooks solving problems to keep my mathematical mind working. I continue to study and think about physics. Besides this, I am an artist, which is how I make a living. Nonetheless, I love teaching math related subjects, which I did at the university for over 3 years. I also have experience teaching online.

I love teaching because it is so unique and special being able to share experience and help another person while I also can feel challenged to communicate well. Communication is my focus and I am always looking for innovative ways to share my understanding in order to challenge the student's way of thinking. I believe that my mathematical skills are meant to be shared.

I will always be a student of mathematics and for this reason I can present the student a common ground where we can meet and learn together. I love math and feel blessed that I have the opportunity to help others learn. My grandfather used to teach me algebra and trigonometry at the kitchen table and I was at first very confused and uninterested, but his efforts grew on me and now I have a passion for teaching others.

I have a degree in physics and I was TA for introductory physics at Carnegie Mellon. I always want to hone my physics mind more and more.

A lot of people say that I have a calming presence. I am able to take things slow or to keep up with you if you want to go fast. I am fun and nice.
