Hi. I?m Kate. I like to work math problems and I like to help others with math!

Every session she works with my daughter is invaluable. Kind and leading in the most positive way. Especially with math, students can quickly become intimidated but the way Kate teaches, my daughter just feels better after each session. I can?t believe how lucky we are to have discovered her!

Kate continues to perform what I hoped she would. She gives the student the freedom to discuss where they are at in a subject and to drive the lesson. This gives the student the chance to show what they know and allows the tutor to monitor their thought and performance process. When a student struggles they can ask for help or Kate can jump in to help them out and use that time to offer suggestions to assist the student in future problems related to that lesson. Kate is a student-orientated tutor and that is what I want. I want my child to demonstrate what they are working on, how they approach the lesson, and demonstrate how they approach problem solving. This approach allows Kate to monitor the student's understanding of the lesson, the problem-solving techniques exhibited, and ways the student can improve.

Kate has helped my daughter build her foundation and confidence in algebra 1 while displaying great knowledge, patience and kindness. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who is looking for a tutor.

Kate is very knowledgeable and eager to help. She is very patient and willing to go step by step with me so I thoroughly understand the material. She brought understanding to an otherwise complex subject. I am very thankful for Kate and her expertise in Calculus.

With all the new language and the fast pace of Calculus I was nothing short of completely confused. Kate was able to make sense of everything, she is very knowledgeable, patient, and I would recommend

Kate is an outstanding tutor who, on her own time, digests the material to ensure a productive and effective tutoring session. She is patient, kind and truly cares about her student's educational experience. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone seeking tutorial services.

Teenagers don't always want "extra" work. Kate is very patient when my son is not the most thrilled to have a tutoring session. By the end of the hour, he is always smiling and in a better mood than he was at the start. 9/22 - Another great session with Kate. She really has a way of connecting. My son always ends the tutoring session in a much better place.

Kate was really great with my son. She was very accommodating with her time. I would highly recommend her as a tutor. My son was able to bring his grades up with Kate's help.

Kate has been a great help to my teenager with his Geometry class! He was falling through the cracks in this class and now he is passing and feels the increased confidence of having a handle on the material. Kate is not only knowledgeable, she is a gifted teacher! We are luck to have her help!
