Katherine is trained by Princeton Review to teach the SAT classes, she is definitely who you are looking for if you are seeking more focused and personalized lesson plans.

They have worked on essay for English classes, for scholarships, and even for her upcoming college application. In addition, Katherine has fantastic teaching styles that makes her lessons engaging. She is also very patient and understanding.

Lucy B. from Milford, NJ We chose Katherine for ACT lessons for our son and could not have been happier with our selection. Katherine knew just how to relate to a teenager and made us very comfortable right from the beginning. Our son's scores in his practice tests have improved tremendously under her guidance. Never has our son complained about going to his lessons, even if they cut into his weekends. Katherine was very flexible with changes we needed to make to the schedule and her correspondence with us was excellent. We always knew exactly what was taught and what the homework assignments were. Not only did Katherine improve our son's English, she also gave him the confidence he will need for the upcoming ACT test. We know that he will do much better than in his previous tests. We would highly recommend Katherine to any student who needs tutoring in English. Thank you, Katherine!!
Makoto O. from Ann Arbor, MI I enjoy conversation with her every week! Because she talks about American culture, tradition, politics, economy, it is not just an English lesson but learning everything about America. Of course it doesn't mean only she speaks. She also wants to learn Japan from me so I have a lot of opportunities to speak English. Every week, time flies.

My son may not be crazy about writing, but he really likes Katherine and says that she is a great tutor. From an administrative aspect, Katherine is easy to get a hold of and very organized. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor.
