Katherine graduated from Columbia in 2013 where she received her B.A. in Psychology with a special concentration in Linguistics. There she combined her love of language with attention to philosophic inquiry and data-driven research. In addition to her studies, Katherine dedicated much of her time to teaching. She worked as a T.A. in the Psychology Department and volunteered with Brainiacs, a program that brought extracurricular science courses to public schools. Katherine is currently completing an M.A. in Linguistics at The Graduate Center at CUNY where she works on computational models of language acquisition. She is also a adjunct lecturer in Computer Science at Hunter College.
Tutoring for now nearly a decade, Katherine is passionate about empowering her students to learn through hands-on challenges. She takes particular pride in the confidence and self-reliance her students develop in their work and works hard to create individualized environments where her students, regardless of age, learning style, or subject, flourish. She has a particular knack for test prep and mathematics.
Though she’s based in New York City, Katherine is an avid traveler; she has visited 34 of the 50 United States (so far) and 15 countries! She also serves on the Board of Directors for FeelGood, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending extreme poverty.
