KatieMy tutoring career began when my professors at the University of Portland recommended me as a tutor for other students seeking help in Chemistry, Biology, and Neuroscience. I found that I was pretty good at it, so I've continued to help students even after earning my BA in Biology from the same institution. I am comfortable working with a few different STEM subjects, including Algebra, AP Biology, High School Chemistry, Physics, and Psychology. I work in an ER, giving me plenty of experience dealing with the chaotic atmosphere sometimes demanded by the learning process. My interests outside of the classroom include running, swimming, knitting, and hanging out with friends, family, and my two beagles.

JulieI have earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in French, from the University of Oregon and Portland State, respectively. I've also studied TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), so I am able to tutor students learning French and students learning English. In addition, I'm fluent in Spanish and have some familiarity with both Latin and Portuguese. I've actually spent time in Spain teaching English to students there. When tutoring students in any language, I use what I've learned in my experiences to see things from the point of view of my student, and this allows me to come up with individualized methods of helping them realize their language goals.
