I just finished up my first year of medical school at Florida Atlantic University, and will be starting back up for the second year in August of 2014.

About me: I went to Suncoast Community High School, and graduated with an IB diploma in 2000. I graduated with over a 4.0 and was a National Merit semi-finalist. I took the SAT II in writing, scoring a perfect 800. I also have hundreds of hours of experience tutoring math subjects including algebra, geometry, trig, and precalc. If you are looking for a math tutor, I might be a good fit for you! I am also competent in and passionate about many other subjects, which you will see listed in my profile.

After graduation from high school I went to the Air Force Academy.

After graduation from the Air Force Academy in 2004, I went on to join the United States Peace Corps and served in Zambia from 2006 - 2008. In Africa I lived in a hut in a small village where I taught preventive health care to Zambian villagers.

Since returning from the Peace Corps, I've tutored in various subjects to students of different ages, always enjoying myself!

Feel free to contact me at any time with any questions about availability!

Kristen’s subjects

ACT Math

The ACT math is very similar to the SAT math, with the exception of the inclusion of trigonometry on the ACT. It's easier than the SAT but faster paced - you have about a minute per question.

Algebra 1

About 90% of what I tutor is Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. Many students seek help with these math subjects. I tutor home-schooled students, FLVS students, and students that go to local high schools and middle schools including Wellington High School, Palm Beach Central High School, Dreyfoos, Suncoast, and J.I Leonard.

Algebra 2

I tutor more math than anything else. Many students seek help with Algebra and Geometry, and I find that most students are bright and capable but find themselves in classes so large that they can't ask questions, or with teachers who don't communicate in the way the students wish for. I tutor home schooled students, FLVS students, and students that go to local high schools and middle schools including Wellington High School, Palm Beach Central High School, Dreyfoos, Suncoast, and J.I Leonard.

Geometry

About 90% of what I tutor is math. Many students seek help with these math subjects. I tutor home schooled students, FLVS students, and students that go to local high schools and middle schools including Wellington High School, Palm Beach Central High School, Dreyfoos, Suncoast, and J.I Leonard.

Precalculus

Many students are intimidated by this class, but it's really not as bad as it seems! I have years of experience tutoring all levels of math up through trig. Contact me if I can help you get through Precalculus.

PSAT

The PSAT is a very important test. Not only does it give a person some indication of how he will do on the all-important SAT, but it also determines his eligibility for the National Merit Scholarship. The good news is that there are plenty of resources to help you prep for the test, so the sooner you get started - the better!

SAT Math

I have several years of experience tutoring SAT Prep. For some great books to help you along, try the following:

The College Board's SAT Study Guide (there are two versions and both are good - one has 7 practice tests and the other has 10).

Up Your Score - This is a hilarious book that is particularly helpful with writing and vocabulary.

Math 800 - For students aiming for really high scores, Math 800 is the ticket. It's got problems that are harder than any you'll see on the real test. By practicing these, you're sure to see your math score improve.

Call me if I can help!

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is one of the most feared math classes. Many students feel like they are learning a whole new language when they approach sines, cosines, tangents, secants, co-secants, and cotangents. Don't worry,though - with a little bit of help I've seen many students who feel lost become quite confident working with trig! From graphing trig functions to proving identities, a little bit of help goes a long way in this subject.

Education

United States Air Force Academy (Philosophy)

Kristen S., the best Math tutor! I searched for the appropriate tutor for my daughter for 2 weeks and then I found Kristen. Perfect match! Kristen is the most awesome tutor. She understands the kids, very patient, pleasant and ensures that they grasp the concept before she leaves. What adds to my comfort is he fact that she is very accessible by phone. My daughter says, Mom Kristen makes me feel so comfortable with Math. My fear ...
