Hi! My name is Katherine. I am a recent graduate from the University of Utah where I studied chemistry with an emphasis in business. I was born and raised in Park City, Utah and graduated from Park City High School with Honors in 2010. I played on the tennis team all four years and was Team Captain my senior year. I love learning, math, science–especially chemistry–and physics, but I also have a huge spot in my heart for reading. When I am not studying, I am most likely hiking in the mountains with my dog or playing tennis. Last year, I applied to become a Big Sister in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program and am now a mentor to a young girl. It has been so rewarding to be a role model for someone and have fun like a kid again.
I believe that learning is one of the most important and rewarding things in life. During college, I have made Dean’s List three separate semesters. Last fall, I took one of the most difficult classes while I was in college, Quantum Chemistry, which I worried would be over my head. I ended up loving the subject and receiving an A in the class. I realized my full potential and it was so rewarding. I hope to instill similar experiences in students as a tutor.
