This is how 19 referees rated Katherine:
I am a very experienced chemistry tutor. My undergraduate school didn't have any graduate programs, allowing undergrads to serve as teaching assistants. I took advantage of that by helping out in "Kitchen Chem" (a non-technical general chem course) as a freshman, freshman chemistry lab as a sophomore, and organic chemistry lab as a junior and senior. I continued as a graduate student, helping teach courses such as general chem, organic chem, and chem for non-majors. I was even hired as a full-time lecturer while still in school.
I double-majored in Chemistry and Mathematics at Southwestern University and earned a Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from Texas A&M in 1984. I also have 30 years of professional experience in the chemical industry, taught all levels of chemistry as a TA, and tutored my daughters and their friends throughout their educational careers. I have won numerous academic awards as well, including a National Merit Scholarship, third-place in the state UIL in science, a perfect 4.0 GPA as an undergrad, and a National Science Foundation Fellowship.
Education should inspire students, and that's always my goal no matter what we're covering.
