A fun fact about me is that I can recite every line of the movie The Princess Bride! Hi, my name is Sylvia. I love working with students.

On a personal level, I am a friendly, outdoorsy, athletic, and talkative type of person! I partner with students on a one-on-one basis in STEM subjects through SoFlo Tutors, my tutoring agency.

Jennifer N. says, "Working with Katie made family life enjoyable again. We had been struggling with our youngest son for several years. However, starting in 7th grade he was noticeably behind in English, specifically writing and arithmetic. Our son routinely had missing assignments or just performed poorly. The biggest issue was getting him to listen to one of us without getting frustrated and walking away. We then hired Katie to help. It not only reduced our stress but our son was more attentive with Katie. He seemed engaged when she was explaining a problem and had no issues attempting to solve it. After a short time, it was like magic. He was more confident and I could see him smiling when she was working with him. I can not say enough about Katie. He is doing very well and loves school.
