Meet Kathryn Lord. Kathryn is an SAT Math & English tutor at College Quo. She is currently a student at the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton '23), where she studies Business Economics and Public Policy. She is planning on pursuing a career in management consulting after graduation, but plans to do economic research into developing countries like Jamaica in the future.
