Katherine C.

Katherine is completing her bachelor’s degree in math and physics from McGill University. She has attended both English and French educational institutions throughout her academic career. These include her studies at a French high school, Pensionnat Saint-Nom-de-Marie, as well as Vanier College to complete a DEC in Pure and Applied Science. In both of these schools, she consistently made the honour roll and excelled academically. Her most notable achievements would mostly be seen in her college years. There, she was appointed as a teaching assistant for several of the upper level mathematics courses where she helped students in courses ranging from Calculus to Linear Algebra. It was also during this time that she became a research assistant for her professor’s biology course and lead a team of other students through an experiment whose paper was eventually published in the Vanier Sigma Science Journal.

Despite being very occupied with her studies during her academic career, she began to take an interest in tutoring others a long time ago. As she went through high school, she saw her classmates struggle in subjects she both enjoyed and did so well in. It was then, at the age of 15, that she decided to start helping them after school. This is something that she would for years to come and now, at the age of 20, she continues to tutor, utilizing her vast knowledge and great experience in this field to help her students.
