About this tutor

Hey everyone! I am excited to announce that I've been named "BEST of Tutors.com" since 2018, an honor given to less than 5% of tutors. 

I am an energetic new college grad with a passion for helping others love learning, even in difficult subjects! 

About me: I studied biochemistry, business, and spanish in college, but STEM classes are my powerhouse.  I have 11+ years of classical music training and am fascinated by language, history, and social studies. I spent my summers teaching English to ESL students abroad, so I have coached many students to English fluency!

College Readiness: I scored in the 99th percentile on the  SAT and ACT, and on many AP tests. I'm intimately familiar with scholarship and college applications as well, receiving $800K in scholarship funding from many top 20 schools. I offer application reviews and consultations, and will work with you to get into your dream school!

Tutoring is amazing! I love helping students grow intellectually and witnessing their pride in accomplishment. There's something amazing about learning to love a subject you once struggled with!

    Kate is incredibly intelligent & patient! Kate is great with people of all ages - I am a college student and she helped me a lot!

    I hired Kate to be my 13-year-old daughters Algebra 1 tutor, Kate had a wonderful way of helping my daughter without making her feel dumb which in my opinion is a very difficult job! She was accommodating with times and Very good at communicating with me what areas my daughter was proficient and the areas that still needed some work. I highly recommend Kate.

    Kate really connected with our 13 year old grandaughter...and the result was a good grade on the final math exam

    I’m writing this as a review on Kate Wegener. She was my tutor for biology during last year and her teaching style is something i really understood. i’m a visual learner and she did what it took to help me understand the topic and would stay with me on it until I could comprehend it. Because of her I was able to pass the class and understand things I couldn’t before. thank you so much for taking the time to read this I appreciate it!
