Hi! My name is Kristen, and welcome! I am currently a fourth grade teacher at a private school. I graduated from Limestone College with a degree in Elementary Education. I have several past tutoring experiences. In college, I completed almost 30 hours of tutoring for course requirements. After college, I held a job with a tutoring company as site director/tutor for Blacksburg Elementary schools. I tutored almost three hours a day, four days a week.
I am interested in tutoring students who need extra help outside of the classroom, students who are having problems with particular subjects, and even students who just want a little extra study time. I do have experience working with children with learning disabilities and behavioral disorders. My schedule is fairly flexible. However, late afternoons/early nights work better through the week. I would also be willing to do Saturday mornings. I love working one on one with children or in small groups where they get the attention and help they need. I like to try different methods when beginning with a child to see what works best for them. For instance, where one child may be more tactile and need blocks to count, another child may be more visual and need to draw. I also like to play games or use flash cards to break up the monotony. After all, your child has already been in school for six hours, as have I, and needs something a little different.
I would be glad to answer any questions you may have. I am so glad you are willing to get the extra help for your student and would love the chance to be a part of their education.
