Educational Philosophy:

Kate's mission as a tutor is to increase both comprehension and confidence, to help students discover and rediscover a love of learning.  She believes that study skills, time management, how to approach problems, and arriving at solutions are all part of the learning process, and the benefits of such tools are transferable from classroom lessons to life skills. 

Kate's tutoring methodology works by meeting her students where they are, and by recognizing that different methods of learning work best for various individuals.  Kate embraces her students' individuality and to strives to spark their curiosity.  There is no one-size-fits all lesson plan; each session is designed to optimize results for the student before her. She is happy to work with her students' classroom teachers to identify areas of weakness. Following each session, parents/ guardians receive a progress report that details what was covered in the session.
