Was effective in Precalc in the first session!

My daughter needed some help with precalc material because she missed a couple days of school. Katheryn knew her stuff and my daughter got what she needed.

Sheila, 1 lesson with Kathryn

Wonderful tutor....HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Kathryn is very patient and professional. She has truly made a tremendous difference in my daughter's understanding of physics, and her grades have skyrocketed! Highly recommend her!

Keri, 31 lessons with Kathryn

Kathryn is a wonderful tutor

Kathryn is a great teacher. She is always on time and is patient, kind and flexible with my daughter and our schedules. Kathryn is easy to communicate with and very responsive. She is passionate about what she does and we appreciate her help with my daughter as she navigates high school math and college testing. We are glad to have found her!

Excellent NBME Tutor - Shelf Obs/Gyn

I'm so glad I found Kathryn! I attend a Canadian School, however, we are required to take NBME shelf exams. I was struggling (failing) with the test-taking strategy before I met Kathryn. After 1 session, I could see that Kathryn cares about helping students. She took the time to assess my exam approach and is excellent at breaking down UWORLD questions. In between sessions, she would always check in to make sure I was keeping up. After working with Kathryn only 5 times, I could see a significant improvement in my test-taking skills. I highly recommend Kathryn. She clearly understands standardized testing. Because of Kathryn, I passed my shelf exam. Worth every penny!

Stacy, 3 lessons with Kathryn

Set me on track for success for chem ; better results than therapy for executive functioning help

In just one session, Kathryn came to the rescue like Superwoman helping me not just understand a lengthy exam review, address calculator issues, but also target a myriad of concepts I long told myself I'd catch up on, but I gave up on along the whirlwind of difficulties these past 2 years have been. She helped make a program to help me address the mountain of tasks that once left me paralyzed and depressed. Although I had gone to therapy over 50 times over 2021 seeking hope for my prospects in life and organization to my mess, I was stuck with the same weight dragging me. Although Mental health professionals provided help in form of lending an ear, neurological diagnosis, suggestions (like supports people could receive, but not possible for the counselors themselves to provide) it only went so far and I still felt ashamed to really lay down all of my frustrations that were still piling up (mainly my academic failures / challenges) and would withhold, as to not add what I imagine were the heavier weights therapists were carrying. But in just the first two session with Kathryn, I felt 100% heard, especially amazed when she could follow the many tangents my tangled brain jumped to, kindly pausing and untangling what I wanted to say but didn't know how to phrase. In therapy I would try not to share too many burdens, but tutor Kathryn kindly invited me even to share down anything else (the many tasks) that I felt was nagging me to address. In 30 minutes with Kathryn, I felt relieved of a weight of failures that I hadn't been able to be free from after 50 therapy sessions. And with Kathryn, after each session concretely I could see the fruits of progress--having learned & solved many practice problems, and a plan to reference (which has kept me on the best track I've ever been on, on a rhythm of consistently studying). Kathryn has given me the support that mental health counselors gave me an idea of what was possible (executive help functioning), grateful to Kathryn for demonstrating & helping me personally to see how hopeful life is like with that support.

A Master Math Tutor

My 17 year old, high school daughter had her first lesson with Kathryn this evening and I my daughter stated Kathryn was outstanding and the best tutor she has ever had. My daughter said Kathryn knew everything about her subject matter (IB Math Course) and she explained it to her so that she understood it. She was also flexible and considerate of our location needs for in-person tutoring. I am beyond thrilled we found Kathryn.

RHONDA, 51 lessons with Kathryn

Best tutor ever!!!

She taught my son and his friend Algebra 2 over the summer, two hours per week, around 10 weeks. She is always on time and well prepared. She is excellent in dividing the difficult concept into a piece for easy understanding. The boys are able to Learn every chapter of Algebra 2 and Trigonometry before they go into High School. We are lucky to have her during the Pandemic, and we’ve decided to have sessions with her continually after summer ends.

Jiah, 26 lessons with Kathryn

Super helpful!

Kathryn was patient and kind. She helped me gain a deeper understanding of my Calculus homework and allowed me to learn the content at my own pace.
