Biography

Kate grew up in the New York City area and graduated cum laude from Horace Mann School. She has worked with more than one thousand students during her career in test preparation, which she began as an undergraduate. As a part-time teacher at Kaplan Test Prep, she taught ACT, SAT, and SHSAT in both in-person and online classrooms. By 2010, Kate expanded her tutoring repertoire to include both the ISEE and SSAT, as well as various AP exams, SAT Subject Tests, and high school and college admissions consulting.

Kate spent 2013 as a full-time instructor, teaching classes and tutoring students throughout the tristate area. In addition to training part-time tutors and developing teaching materials, Kate taught and tutored low-income students through her involvement in partnerships with the NYC Department of Education. In 2014, Kate was promoted to manager of content and curriculum, spearheading product and course revisions for the 2015 PSAT and 2016 SAT test changes.

Kate is an energetic and patient tutor (and cheerleader!) who is able to quickly and effectively accommodate her students’ needs. She expects her students to be prepared and do their best and is always willing to talk them through any related challenges they might encounter either within or outside of lessons. Her tutoring is creative and adaptive, providing her students with the support and skills they need to achieve their goals.

Kate is well positioned to help students with a wide variety of learning differences. In addition to her extensive experience as a tutor, she is a lifelong activist for the Autism community, and has been volunteering with children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder since her childhood. Kate also holds a Professional Certificate in Learning Differences (LD) and Neurodiversity with a Specialization in Executive Function through the Landmark College Institute for Research & Training.

In addition to tutoring full-time, Kate is Director of School Partnerships at Inspirica Pros and also leads ongoing efforts to remain at the forefront of Executive Function coaching and tutoring neurodiverse learners. When she’s not working, Kate can be found attending Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off-Broadway productions or competing with her trivia team, Green Eggs and Hamlet.

Kate is a funny, patient, kind, demanding, sharp, and responsive tutor who loves to help students reach their potential and achieve their dreams.
