Kathryn is the best!

Extremely patient tutor that’s very flexible with your schedule. She has been so patient with me my past few sessions and never looks down on me for information I don’t know. I can’t suggest her enough!

Ayianna, 4 lessons with Kathryn

Very knowledgeable!

Kathryn is very on top of setting goals to accomplish throughout your sessions together and really digging into topics you don't understand. She makes sure to understand your learning style and figure out ways to enhance these skills to help you retain and use the knowledge you have when answering questions.

Lexi, 5 lessons with Kathryn

She is a great coach

Kathryn is helping me with my USMLE step 2 test now. She is the nicest person to talk to. She always gives great suggestions whenever I have any type of challenge when studying. She is very responsible, encouraging, knowledgeable, and patient. I highly recommend anyone try at least one session with her. You will know it just a few minutes after talking with her.

Extremely organized and efficient

First session with Kathryn so far. She is kind, organized and very knowledgeable about USMLE boards. She demonstrated and explained clearly how she will ensure my success on exam and I look forward to our next session!

Great COMLEX Tutor!

Kathryn helped me tremendously as I was preparing for my Level 1 board exam. She helped my understanding in attacking questions and figuring out what exactly the questions were asking and picking out key points from the stem to help lead me to the correct answer. She helped me rule out answer choices through process of elimination by having me explain to her each answer choice and why it is wrong or right. This strategy really helped me on exam day. We met twice a week for a few weeks leading up to my board exam and would work through a set of questions together so she was able to assess my thought process and help direct me in the right direction. I highly recommend Kathryn as your tutor as you prepare for Step 1/ Level 1. She is very knowledgable and patient and really cares about her students. She helped me so much with my test taking skills which was exactly what I needed.

Excellent tutor

Kathryn is an excellent tutor who’s knowledgeable in many subjects, from AP classes in high school to college classes as well. She’s great with my two girls!

Nicole, 12 lessons with Kathryn

Great for MCAT tutoring!

I can’t thank Kathryn enough for the incredible support she provided me! With her help, I got an MCAT score that I didn’t think I could ever get (511, an 8 point improvement from when I studied alone). We mostly focused on CARS and chemistry/physics, which were two of my most challenging subjects, and together we created an individualized plan that helped me stay on track and motivated when reviewing concepts. Even when I got seemingly “easy” questions wrong, Kathryn kept up great moral and even used those moments as valuable teaching/learning opportunities. Kathryn also does an amazing job at helping you develop study habits and test taking strategies that can help you in just about any exam you need to take! She even helped me practice useful habits for coping with test anxiety. She’s extremely knowledgeable, personable, provides you with a ton of resources, and really works to learn who you are as an individual and a student. I honestly cannot recommend anyone better than her! Thank you, Kathryn!

Knowledgable and Adapting MCAT Tutor

Kathryn and I discussed the MCAT in general and worked together on strategies for the CARS section. Kathryn approaches each student to help create an individualized strategy to tailor to your learning and testing style. I look forward to many more session with Kathryn in pursuit of a high MCAT score!

Alexander, 4 lessons with Kathryn
