Hello, I realize that my profile has gotten very long. If you do not want to read all of it, there is a TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read) summary at the bottom of the page. Thank you! Sincerely, Katie D. - Dear future students, I'm a tutor, I'm a friend, I'm a cognitive psychology student; I like to work with people, and I do not believe that anyone should be without help if they need it, regardless of whether or not they can afford to pay. I work with people because I love learning myself, ... [more]

Algebra 1

I've been doing algebra 1 for what seems to be forever; I was interested in it when I was a kid, so when I was still in elementary school, my dad taught me how to factor and expand (foil). When I finally got to Algebra 1 in school, I passed easily, helping everyone else in my group to understand the concepts that I had known for years. I still love doing Algebra, and if you need help with it, I would LOVE to help you. It's OK, my boyfriend who is in calculus had to have me help him with factoring too.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is a solid continuation of Algebra 1 (which I have been tutoring for years). Without realizing it, I have been tutoring Algebra 2 for a few years as well, as I have watched my Algebra 1 students progress through their studies! While the topics in Algebra 2 are marginally more difficult than in Algebra 1, the same variety of teaching techniques apply. This is true though many different levels of math, including all levels of Algebra, including College Algebra!

Geometry

I loved Geometry in high school. At first, like many students, I was confused by all of the different angles and numbers, however, I soon found my niche and from there it was smooth sailing. One of the things that I took pride in that year was being able to help my fellow students who were having trouble in Geometry. Between my love of the subject, and already helping other students learn how to do it well, I know that I can be the right tutor for you. If you want an easy going, stress-free, mistakes-okay environment to learn Geometry in, then I am the tutor for you. As of December 2016 I've been tutoring geometry professionally for roughly five years, and I tutored geometry for about two years before that at an after school program.

Microsoft Word

I use Microsoft Word, and I have been helping older students (as well as my parents) with learning how to do the formatting. If you are looking for learning all of the formatting and editing basics of Microsoft Word in a friendly, easy-going, mistakes-okay environment, I'm the person you should come to.

Microsoft PowerPoint

Microsoft Powerpoint is one of the most widely used programs in this millennium; it is more widely used that even Microsoft Word, and just like in Microsoft Word, if you want to learn the basics in a no-stress, easy going, mistakes-okay environment, I'm the person that you want to come to.

Prealgebra

I tutored Pre-Algebra for a year and a half, I know how to explain it to people who have problems with math. I can make it fun for you, if you give me a chance.

Writing

English is something that I have always taken pride in, both for myself, and for helping others. I love being able to help other people understand English, and being able to help people communicate their ideas is what really counts. If I can help someone do that... it feels good to watch someone else understand something that they have struggled with, it is a feeling like no other to know that you have helped someone so much.

Statistics

I fell in love with Statistics in high school. In December of 2017 I graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in Statistics from Arizona State University. Throughout my degree I learned everything from basic statistics to quality control to nonparametric statistics. I've also learned how to use SAS, SPSS, R, MiniTab, DesignExpert, Excel, and the statistics functions on most TI calculators.

Psychology

I am a psychology major and I have helped many of my classmates as well as assisting my old psychology professors in helping out with their psychology 101 classes. I love helping psychology students, and would love to help you! If you want a stress-free, flexible, worry-free, easy going, mistakes-okay environment then I am the tutor for you!

Proofreading

I proofread papers for my college English classes to the point that even the sloppiest students that I have worked with have gotten "A"s. If you want to get a better score on your paper, and have real, honest responses to your work, I'm the person you should contact.

GED

I have tutored a couple of students for the GED test. While I can help with the other sections, I primarily focus on the mathematics portion of the test. I've helped students learn all of the necessary math for the GED starting at basic addition and subtraction, going up through more complex word problems and algebra.

ASVAB

When I took the ASVAB in High School, I scored a 91. That was before I had tutored math for six years and had an engineer as my calculus professor. I can't promise that I can help you with the non-math sections, but if Math Knowledge or Arithmetic Reasoning is where you're struggling, I can certainly help you there.

Study Skills

As a young adult, I had troubles with study skills, and over the years I have found the strategies that work for me, as well as for others. I don't just pay attention to what works for me, because I know that other people do not learn or process information the same way that I do, and what really matters is helping each individual in the way that works the best for him or her.

College Counseling

I have done so much college research, and I have learned so much through my own experiences, but I know how frightening figuring out those first few college classes can be, I'm here to help. I do not feel qualified to help anyone at a level above their Associates, however, if you have questions about the first two years, I can help.

ADHD

I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 14. Over the past several years of tutoring, I have worked with multiple students who have ADHD, both with and without medication. People with ADHD have a very specific way of accomplishing tasks, one with which I am well acquainted. I would be more than happy to help your student learn how to work with instead of against their ADHD too!
