Hello! My name is Kristine, and I love tutoring and teaching young students. I am a licensed teacher with a Multiple Subject Credential. I have worked at the elementary and junior high level. I have three children of my own, all of whom are now in college! My favorite part of teaching is working with students in small groups or one-on-one. I love helping students really understand the material. I have worked for the last three years as an intervention specialist at a junior high school. I enjoy helping children learn to build critical processing skills which are the foundation for reading, spelling, language, comprehension, and life-long learning. My main goal in tutoring is for the individual I'm working with to comprehend the material and ultimately experience success. I have found that when students achieve success with a tutor, students have the tools to build their own success in school. I am able to give individual attention and meet the student at his or her level of understanding and particular learning style. There are many benefits to private tutoring, including no distractions, the ability to focus on a specific subject area, and providing homework help. I am able to provide these benefits with an enthusiasm for learning while building self confidence and esteem at the same time. I want your student to not only learn the material, but enjoy doing so and feel good about the results!

I am also certified in American Sign Language and have experience tutoring deaf students as well as teaching sign language to children. I absolutely love sign language and would love to teach or tutor individuals and share my knowledge of a beautiful language! I also tutor both high school and college ASL students as well.

I look forward to working with your child!

I am a credentialed teacher. I have a multiple subject credential. I have taught at both the elementary and middle school level. I taught English Language Arts to 7th and 8th graders that were at risk of failing. I have had training in intervention techniques and I also have BCLAD certification.

Elementary Math

I am a credentialed teacher with a Multiple Subject Credential. I have taught math intervention to students from grades 2-6. I taught students grade level standards. I used re-teaching methods as well as front-loading so that the students would be familiar with the subject matter prior to instruction. I have two years of experience teaching elementary math.

Hard Of Hearing

I received a Bachelor's degree in Communicative Disorders with an emphasis in Deaf Studies. I have taken coursework in Audiology and am fluent in American Sign Language. I also have studied strategies to work with students with hearing loss. I also have C.C.A.S.L. Certification: Certificate in Conversational American Sign Language.

Phonics

I received a bachelor's degree in communicative disorders with an emphasis in deaf studies. I have taken coursework in teaching students that have difficulty accessing the English language and multiple linguistics courses. I have learned numerous strategies including using phonetics to help individuals access the sounds of the English language. I am also familiar with the phonetic alphabet.

Sign Language

I received a bachelor's degree in communicative disorders with an emphasis in deaf studies. I have taken coursework in audiology and am fluent in American Sign Language. I also have studied strategies to work with students with hearing loss. I also have C.C.A.S.L. Certification: Certificate in Conversational American Sign Language. I have worked with deaf students using sign language, and I have also taught sign language to hearing students.

Speech

I have a BA in communicative disorders and a Multiple Subjects Credential. I have worked with students that need extra help with their speech. I have used phonics instruction and helped hard of hearing and deaf students with articulation. I have also helped students with presentations and am able to help employ strategies to gain confidence with public speaking.

Study Skills

I have a BA in communicative disorders and hold a Multiple Subject Credential. I have attended workshops and conferences regarding study skills strategies. One of the methods I use is the SQ3R: survey, question, read, recite, review. I also have been an intervention teacher for the last three years, where I employed strategies for effective learning. I worked with students on how to manage their time & study environment, and helped students analyze past tests to determine how they could improve their test-taking skills.

Great Tutor — Kristine is a wonderful tutor. She is so patient but effective at getting my son to focus on the work for an entire hour, which is difficult for him to accomplish in other situations. She is also organized and creates goals with realistic expectations for my son to accomplish. My son enjoys his sessions with Kristine even though reading and writing are not his favorite activities. ...
