Hi there! My name is Katie.
I am a senior neuroscience student at Michigan State University and I am passionate about lighting a fire to learn within others. I recently took the MCAT and I am in the process of applying to medical schools. It excites me to see all that we can accomplish together through tutoring!
Believe it or not, I hated school growing up. My mom forced me, kicking and screaming, to be tutored in math during middle school. After a few weeks, an odd transformation occurred. I was no longer overwhelmed and frustrated in math class, but motivated and determined. The problems that previously frightened me I now viewed as a challenge that I could conquer.
From my own journey, I have experienced how powerful it is to have a coach come alongside to teach, simplify, and explain. For two years of my high school career I tutored one student in all of her classes three times a week. It was invigorating to see our hard work take her grades from F- to A+.
My goal as a tutor is to clarify concepts in an approach that is tailored to each individual learning style. Core science classes are my strongest topics, but I also enjoy teaching math, writing, and test prep subjects. I would be thrilled to meet with you and accelerate not only your academic achievements, but also your desire to learn and excel in life.
