Meet Katherine

I am a recent graduate from UCSB with a degree in biology. I am currently taking a year off before attending dental school. I have done private tutoring and volunteer tutoring in the past with all ages from elementary to high school. I have scored highly in standardized testing and can help in all subject areas related to science and math. I have been president of UCSB's Pre-Dental Organization and I am currently working with UCSB's Floating Doctors Dental to plan a non-profit trip to Panama to provide free dental care. These positions have taught me how to articulate myself well to others, organize and prioritize wisely and given me a professional demeanor. My goal is to make learning fun and make large concepts more manageable.

Katherine has been working with my boys ages 11 and 14 for a while now and we couldn't be happier! She provides homework support and test prep when needed but also has familiarized herself with each boy's curriculum as well as assessed what areas/skills need to be addressed or where help is needed and comes prepared with her own material or exercises for the boys to do relevant to what they are working on in class. In addition, she provides me with a detailed weekly overview of what they have worked on and how they are progressing. Her initiative to figure out where my boys strengths and weaknesses are and to gather the necessary support materials on her own to bring to the sessions has taken a lot of work off my plate. She runs the sessions - so I don't have to! My boys are tough critics and she passed the test and is officially approved. We recommend her with confidence!
