ABOUT KATIE


Katie graduated from Boston College magna cum laude.  She majored in Math and Theater while also studying Physics and being in the Honors Program.  She has been tutoring middle school, high school, and college students for 12 years and has classroom teaching experience as well.

Her specialty is test prep, including the SAT, ACT, ISEE and GRE exams.  She also loves tutoring math, from pre-algebra through calculus.

Her math skills are, of course, put to good use in her test prep tutoring, but Katie is a standardized test prep pro in general!  Her students learn the ins and outs of the exam(s), mastering the content as well as the unique formats of the tests.  She loves seeing students achieve better grades and higher scores and gaining confidence in themselves!
