Overview

Hi there, my name is Catherine. I have a B.S. in Physics from UC Riverside and about 3 years of research laboratory experience, 2 of which were at the UCSD Medical Center in Hillcrest. I have been a personal tutor for middle school and high school students off and on since about 2010. For me it is the most rewarding experience to help students understand difficult concepts through discussion and practice. I do my best to help make math and science clear and more importantly interesting. I am an easy going and flexible person who tries to teach through discussion and if possible practical application of concepts. I look forward to working with you and making math and science interesting and fun.

Catherine helped me with difficult science projects and pre-algebra homework for years. I have many learning challenges and an IEP for 9 years and have had many tutors but she was the best! She taught me so much despite my learning challenges.
