Katherine nailed it. She listened, digested, and offered the precise solution I was seeking. She took the time to provide follow-up support and training aids after our session as a courtesy. Katherine takes her role as tutor very seriously and seeks to deliver professionals results. Overall, Katherine is a very engaging and supportive tutor.
Katherine taught my daughter so much about the "little things" involved with math and problem solving. My daughter loved her patience, kindness and intelligence. Thought provoking questions were used to determine what my daughter knew and why. This was an amazing session and we are absolutely going to set a consistent schedule to solidify and improve my daughter's math knowledge and comfort. Thank you Katherine!
