Kathy Platt Tutoring
I love students, and I remember being a student. Sometimes it was difficult to connect concepts because the teacher had to move at a certain speed or I just needed more help. I understand the challenges students face, and help provide the support, education, lightheartedness, care, and patience to help a student feel and be successful.
I have a BS in Chemistry with a math minor, an MS in Biocjemistry, and ten years’ experience teaching and tutoring all ages and levels.
