About Kristina

I am a recent graduate of The University of Texas at San Antonio. I have a teaching certification in reading, language arts and social studies for grade levels 4-8. These subjects are my focus; however, I will tutor other areas. My student teaching semester was in a 6th grade reading classroom. I held an after school tutoring program for students who needed additional help to improve their reading benchmark scores. I would like to tutor for a while before I get my own classroom.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been tutoring elementary students for the past six months. I home schooled a student in 3rd grade science and social studies so I am very familiar with the curriculum. I was able to answer his questions that extended beyond the topic. We did science experiments on the topics we learned about. It was great for him to work with his hands and always want to inquire more.

Phonics

I have worked with students as young as kindergarten and phonics is a critical element of learning how to read. I have a phonics curriculum to use with students who are learning how to read- including long vowels, shorts vowels, consonant blends and much more. These skills are the building blocks for learning how to read.

Social Studies

I am a qualified social studies tutor because I am certified to teach social studies. During college I taught a few lessons in an 8th grade American History classroom. I have taught a home school student the entire 3rd grade social studies curriculum.

Great teacher — We love her, she is great. We are so sad that she has to move out of town, but she ever comes back and stay in town, we are sure the first to call her. Wish you luck Kristina. ...
