Great job. We covered the basic beginning skills and free resources. Homework has been assigned and I'll be working hard. Thanks.

Kate was an amazing tutor! I really enjoyed working with her. I needed someone to help me understand math concepts I had not practiced for years and years in preparation for the Praxis Core Math test. Prior to working with Kate, I had taken the test one time and failed. However, with her help studying for my second attempt at the test - I passed! I increased my score by 30 points with her help. Two things I loved about working with Kate - 1. Her use of the whiteboard because I am a visual learner and 2. Her coaching - the homework that she gave me to do. She also gave me quite a few tips which made studying and test-taking easier as well. Thanks a bunch, Kate!!!

I was struggling with the praxis test writing portion but Kate helped me. I finally got my results today and found out that I passed. She gave me the tools necessary to pass. She was always prepared for my questions. She helped improve my self confidence. None of the other tutors were as knowledgeable as her.

Kate T. is helping me get ready to take the Praxis Core Math exam. We?ve just had our first lesson and I am already feeling more confident.
- Mary S. from Snellville, GA
Kate was very knowledgeable during my tutoring sessions, she offered easier strategies for test taking, and offered other studying resources. I?m looking forward to other sessions with Kate.
- Paulette J. from Marrero, LA
I have always been a person who struggled with test-taking. At the beginning of summer 2020, I had a goal to pass the writing praxis. I had taken the test 3 times before contacting Kate for help. I was ready to throw in the towel and drop out of my major. Kate did an excellent job of calming my nerves and making sure I understood how the test worked. After speaking the first day, we set up a plan and meet multiple times a week. She always made sure I understood a topic before moving on and answered all my questions. I ended up passing my test, and I owe it all to Kate.

Kate T. is a wonderful and excellent tutor!! She helped me over a year ago with Praxis core and I was able to pass the sections I was struggling with because of her. She is very patient and super nice!! She also gives you multiple resources to study too! She is currently helping me with praxis 2 and I?m really excited to work with her again. If you need an ACT/Praxis tutor, she?s the one!!
- Jessica W. from Fort Mill, SC
Kate taught me a lot of different strategies and how to be successful on the PRAXIS. I am excited for the next tutoring session. I would definitely recommend her to my classmates if they need help with the PRAXIS.
- Dee S. from Killeen, TX
Kate is by far the best tutor that I have ever learned from. She is so positive. I am 30 years old and have not been in school for a long time and was able to help me with English, science, math, and reading comprehension for my TEAS test. I ended up passing my TEAS test with her help. She was so patient and helpful to me. I am so glad that I found Kate. I will use her again for tutoring. She truly got me through a very stressful time. Kate is the best and I will always be grateful and thankful for all her help.
- Stephanie C. from Douglas, WY
She taught me some testing techniques. I feel that working with her will definitely be a great asset! She is very knowledgeable about the PRAXIS. She also reviewed my weaknesses on previous test and gave me tips to improve.
- Candace T. from Orange Park, FL
Kate gave me a new way to look at things !! I?m only one session she started to rebuild my confidence back! She is teaching me that geometry does not have to create hysteria in me. She has a very welcoming and patient personality.
- Kimberley M. from Ville Platte, LA
Kate is helping my son to improve his act score. She is very detail oriented and very helpful. Doesn't waste any minute. Very efficient and requires a lot. She came highly recommended and I see why.

For any student trying to prepare for the ACT or the SAT, I cannot encourage you enough to request Kate's services.....if she is available. My daughter is a good student, and I wasn't sure the prep would be necessary, but oh was I wrong. Kate is thorough, she doesn't mess around. She expects the students to put the time in that she requires, but she is gently, caring, INVOLVED, and highly intelligent. When 1 point on an ACT makes the difference in what college your child can attend, don't hesitate to call Kate. My daughter went from a 30 on her practice test, to a 32 with the 1st ACT attempt and a 34 with a perfect English score of 36 on the 2nd attempt. Needless to say, college options are wide open. She encouraged us to apply and take the PSAT 1 week later --- which I thought was a waste. Turns out...once again....she was right! My daughter aced the PSAT and now her email inbox is stuffed with colleges interested in her. Your student does not have to be a star to benefit from Kate's help. They just need to be able to call her, talk to her, and Kate will design a practice review that works for your child's personality, study habits, etc. She fills in gaps where the schools miss out --- and believe me, there are many. I cannot thank her enough for her work with our daughter. She lightened the load for us, her parents, gave our daughter the confidence to do well, and meet her goals. It is worth every single penny you spend on the tutoring that she provides. Scrimp and save elsewhere, but not on this. You wont regret it!!

I'm currently being tutored by Kate for the Kaplan nursing entrance exam she has been tutoring in all 4 subjects Math, reading,science and English.She is very knowledgeable in all subjects.She really takes her time and explains things to you and helps you feel better my weakest subjects are reading and English after i have a session with her I always come away like i'm learning something new. I would tell anyone if you want someone who is kind and knows the material she is the best tutor for you. I have given her number to plenty of my nursing friends.Even after this test I'm going to keep her number for future references. Thanks, Kate your the best

I learned today specifically the multiple choice of the writing/grammar portion. I enjoy how much she broke each grammar rule down for me.
- Peyton H. from Hopkinsville, KY
I struggle with test taking in general. I took the TEAS once and could have passed by with getting into LPN school, but I really wanted to be a RN. It had always been my dream. The school that I was applying for needed my TEAS score to be an additional 10 points from my first test score. I knew I could raise my score by a few points, but would have never dreamed I could have done it by 12 points. I would not have been able to be so successful if it was not for Kate. She worked with me One on One regardless to where I was situated and helped me with TEAS concepts and practice tests. I am now in my 5th quarter of nursing School working on Pharmacology and Fundamentals. I worked very hard to get to this point and Kate was the push I needed to get this far.
- Alexandra S. from Leesburg, FL
Kate is just outstanding. Her lesson plans are clear, focused and truly represent the type of questions I saw on my TEAS exam. Kate challenged me to research answers independently but was always a "click" away when I needed additional guidance. Bottom line, I passed the TEAS and it's due in very large measure to Kate!
- Ellen R. from Aurora, IL
Kate has truly been a remarkable help. Her assistance with MATH and ACT Prep has been a huge help and we are so pleased that she is our tutor. Kate is an excellent tutor and her passion for the students shows in her teachings.
- Kendall M. from Humble, TX
Kate was excellent at explaing things to my son, evrything was so much clearer after my son had a lesson with her, and her personality is even better! She is very proffesional and knows how to apply her knowledge into the lessons. The only thing that I regret, is not picking her earlier.
- Martin A. from Asbury Park, NJ
I have two of my boys who are receiving tutoring from ms Kate. My youngest son who is a 7th grader, he's getting tutored for reading.. He is really enjoying ms Kate.. My oldest son is getting ACT prep tutoring from ms Kate.. Which at first he wasn't sure he wanted, but after the first session he said he really thinks she can help him get the score he needs for ACT. I really think ms Kate will be a great help to my boys and I would highly recommend her to any one who needs a tutor.
