I love seeing students succeed! Most recently, a current student of mine made a 34 (out of 36) on their most recent ACT score. She initially was scoring in the mid 20s on practice exams when I met her, but has now achieved her highest score. Knowing that students are taking the steps they need to either get to college or start a career is something I particularly enjoy about tutoring.

Katrina just started working with my daughter and she has been awesome! She gives us updates of our child’s progress and she is extremely patient and kind. My daughter is really enjoying the experience of working with her!
My favorite thing about Katrina is that she helped me build my confidence in math. I hadn't taken a math course in 2 years and was nervous about starting college algebra, but Katrina has been really patient with me and my mental math skills are improving too!
Katrina is so kind and patient with my child, their grade AND confidence have both improved greatly!
After my daughter dropped her Algebra II class, she tried again the next year with Katrina as a tutor. My daughter ended up passing the class with an A! She's an excellent tutor and I would definitely recommend her!
With any new student, I first like to understand their learning style and what particular topics they are stuggling with. Once I have a better understanding of this, I will create lessons that are tailored to their needs and continue helping them with their school material.I will also follow up by giving them weekly or biweekly quizzes over any new content learned to ensure they are retaining the information. With math particularly, most students need lots of repition. However, each student is different, so I will work to make sure each person is learning at a comfortable pace and retaining information.
I graduated from UNT with a BS in mathematics and a 3.7 GPA. As a junior at UNT, I was a teaching assistant and taught elementary statistics to new incoming students. I also worked in the school's math lab, where I tutored other college students from college algebra to pre-calculus. Later, I also worked at Sylvan Learning Center with a great group of teachers for about 2 years. Since then, I have been private tutoring students, primarily in high school, but also younger students in middle school as well.
I initially had an interest in teaching at UNT where I was studying mathematics. UNT has a program, Teach North Texas (TNT), that is specialized for students wanting to become teachers. While in this program, I was able to student teach elementary and middle school students in the Mckinney area while also learing how to plan engaging lessons.
Later, as a teaching assistant for a UNT statistics professor, I was able to work directly with college students in lower level math classes and teach a statistics course.
I have worked with students of all ages, from Pre-K up to college. I have some experience working with students with Down syndrome. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns.
