Katherine spent her undergraduate year studying and appreciating the environment, both land and sea, then went on into a career in education. She believes that everyone has an innate ability to learn and tries to instill curiosity into all of her students. As a biology teacher to all levels of students, she wants students to create a fundamental understanding of the world around them and appreciate the world around them. In order for students to be successful, they need to have a solid foundation of knowledge that can be built upon. In addition, it's important for teachers/tutors to recognize students as humans and treat them as such along with building a strong student-teacher connection. With any kind of learning, students need to focus on the progression and building of their knowledge in addition to developing a why and true understanding instead of memorizing for a grade. I like to help students grasp tough concepts by breaking content down into pieces and build on their prior knowledge- it's the best way we learn! Teaching is an art form and each student should be treated as an individual- there is not a "one size fits all" method to teaching either, which is why every school year, each day and every class period is always different!
