Tutoring while guiding the student is my purpose. I believe that all students can learn and become high achievers if they are given the appropriate tools and strategies.

I have an MBA from Ohio State University, a BA in Economics and a BBA in Management (from St. Mary's at Notre Dame). I have a minor in humanities. My years in the business world, and more than 20 years tutoring students from kindergarten through college, as well as conducting corporate training have permitted me to help s...

Explains in more than one way when I'm not understanding the problem. She is patient and fun to learn with! ?? I'm farther along then I have ever been learning with you Kate! Thank you so much!

Kate does weekly sessions for our son. He has homework, not too much, but enough for him to progress. Our son likes Kate and we are very pleased with her professionalism and help!
- Cliff W. from Scottsdale, AZ
We are very impressed with Kate. She is very positive and patient with my son. She has been very accommodating to our schedule as well! We look forward to keep working with her.

Kate is a very sweet person. My daughter has a hard time with being around people she does not know and is easily discouraged when she does not pick something up right away. Kate is patient and makes her feel comfortable, so she looks forward to working with her. If you knew my daughter you would know what a compliment this is to Kate and her abilities.

My daughter has a very difficult time with math. Kate is great! She makes my daughter feel so much more confident each time that we meet with her!
- Theresa P. from Gilbert, AZ
Kate was wonderful. She helped me grasp some concepts that were difficult, and made them easier to comprehend. She was very interactive used visual aides and taught new tools to help get problems resolved faster and efficiently.

My husband is an adult learner who has struggled with math his entire life. He also has ADD and some other learning difficulties so when it came time to retake a math class for the third time, we knew we needed to bring in reinforcements. Enter Kate. Kate has turned my husband's phobia of math into a comfort level that I've never seen. He even said today, after coming home from his tutoring session, "I've never felt this comfortable with math before"! This is HUGE! Not only is Kate patient, but she tailors the tutoring sessions to the specific needs of her clients. She has taught my husband tips and tricks to help him break down the math problem and make it feel less overwhelming. She has made herself incredibly available as well so we could work around my husband's school and work scheduling needs and we have appreciated that very much. I will forever be grateful (as will my husband) for our experiences with Kate and we highly, highly recommend her to anyone, including adult learners, who find math to be tedious, overwhelming and daunting. She has made the entire math experience for my husband not only tolerable but, she has helped build confidence and a feeling of accomplishment in him that I am so thankful for. Thank you Kate! You are amazing!!

Kate is the best! I contacted her needing help with not only public speaking, but also coming up with effective PowerPoint presentations. She didn't just sit there and "preach"- she LITERALLY changed my way of thinking about how to get a point across and what techniques to use to change my attitude about both skill sets. I met her for an hour in the morning and left with a new outlook on ideas and focus and met with her again in the afternoon with a new approach. While I still need to "practice" the public speaking part, my skill overall is more refined and focused. Thank you, Kate!

Kate is a sweet woman and very versatile. She helped my sophomore son with algebra 1, world history, an English project, and study skills. For algebra, she was able to relate the lessons to something my son loves - football. For history, she showed him how to pull out key points from the text. And thanks to Kate, my son went from not really knowing how to take effective notes to getting an A in the class. The teacher even used his notes as an ideal example for the rest of the class. She also took time to go over his schedule and help him organize his after-school hours so he could be most effective with his time. Also, when he had large projects, she helped to break them down into manageable pieces. I highly recommend Kate!

Kate knew exactly where to start with my daughter. She gave me great ideas on how to work with her at home. She was always patient, kind and persistent in making sure she was prepared for tests. Thanks, Kate!

Kate tutored my son with the goal of raising his ASVAB (military entrance exam) score. Before tutoring, his score was 19 -- after tutoring with Kate for a relatively short period of time, our son's ASVAB score rose to 40! Our son enjoyed his tutoring sessions with Kate and found her to be patient and kind with a positive outlook and always ready with encouraging words. Thank you, Kate, for your very valuable help. We would highly recommend your tutoring services to anyone needing that extra help to achieve their goals!
- Kathy T. from Mesa, AZ
We had a great session tonight! We were able to finish up my son's algebra homework and spend some time working on graphing equations. He added these extra notes and examples to his folder. Excellent session!
- Cathleen D. from Mesa, AZ
My daughter has been going to Kate for tutoring for about 5 months. Her grade has improved steadily during that time. Kate has a great connection with her, which makes her feel comfortable and confident with her math skills. Kate is very easy to communicate with, and very accommodating when it comes to schedule changes. She works with my daughter at Barnes and Noble, which makes it very convenient for me as well. I would highly recommend Kate for tutoring!
- Tracey S. from Gilbert, AZ
We just LOVE Kate! She is so patient, very helpful and always has great tips to help her students succeed.
- Crystal W. from Mesa, AZ
Kate is a wonderful tutor! She has renewed my son's faith in his ability to learn algebra. Kate is always prompt, friendly and encouraging. She is a true educator in the sense that she cares about both her subject and her student. I am extremely pleased with my teenage son's progress-- he is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel thanks to Kate's patience and support! I highly recommend her!
- Jen T. from Gilbert, AZ
Our son has absolutely loved working with Kate from the very beginning. All the issues we are focusing on have shown excellent progress and he looks forward to each lesson. It's not possible to express enough appreciation for all the help! Thank You!
- Michael M. from Chandler, AZ
Kate has worked with my daughter for three sessions now. My daughter feels very comfortable with her and Kate really works on getting her self confidence up regarding math. Kate is also very thorough in her lessons. Definitely worth the money! Kate does an excellent job explaining math concepts to my daughter!
- Kim F. from Chandler, AZ
Kate is awesome! She has a great knowledge of highschoolers and what they need and how they learn. My son has not only increased his Algebra grade, but also has increased his confidence in math.
- Regina B. from Mesa, AZ
It was only one lesson, but both my wife and I were extremely happy with Kate, and our son, who does not like school, nor homework, was very excited to work with her again, and even asked if she could come every day. This has not happened to him in all his school years, so talk about a fantastic first impression! He took that single hour with her, and has already shown improvement in his study skills. Kate, I don't know how you did it, especially in only 1 lesson, but that was fantastic! Very, very much looking forward to the next lesson and beyond! Update, as of 4/24/2013 - Hi Kate. We just received word that our son received the highest score in the 6th grade, in math, on his Ames test. This is amazing, so exciting, and we?re so thankful for what you've done! You've done such an amazing job with him, and not just due to Ames testing, but in the fact that he simply DOES HIS HOMEWORK, and doesn't miss assignments (has never happened before). He just gets his work done, his grades are greatly improved, and the Ames testing -- well, the cherry on top of the cake. Again, you've done such a wonderful job, and we?re so grateful! Thank you so very, very much.
- Ken P. from Gilbert, AZ
Kate has tutored my daughter for almost 4 years in a wide range of subjects. She is amazingly dedicated, always comes up with ways for my daughter to understand things. She has become a member of the family and we rely on her. Thanks so much.
