Hi there! My name is Kristin. My love of teaching stems from a lifelong passion for learning. As a budding scientist with a bachelor's of science
, I know firsthand that hard work and dedication pay off. If you're struggling in the sciences, I can help you to become an Einstein in no time!
Learning anything can be tremendously fun if one is equipped with the tools to approach the material in a positive way. Therefore, the foundation of my teaching philosophy
is that anyone can understand core concepts in ANY subject with the correct cultivation of their personal learning style and some quality effort.
That's right--ANYONE, including you!
As a teaching assistant in college-level general and organic chemistry
courses for all four years of my undergraduate education, I developed personalized teaching strategies that make lesson design as easy as 3.14! (That's pi...!) My main areas of expertise lie in science and mathematics
, and biology
Test prep/study skills
are also my specialty, so if you are stressed about your standardized tests, don't be--I can help! My own standardized test scores were incredibly high, so you can benefit greatly from my ACT
, AP and GRE
studying and test-taking strategies! I have coached several students and assisted them in raising their scores--many of my students have seen increases in their ACT composite scores of 5 points or more! That's huge, and with the right mindset, anyone can do it!
I create personalized and challenging (but NOT overwhelming) exercises and lessons. I also provide active, ongoing feedback and am always available for questions, even between sessions!
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to improve your test scores and overall learning capabilities. I have a tremendous passion and enthusiasm for learning, and can't WAIT to kindle that excitement in students around Houston!
***NOTE*** : I LOVE to receive feedback and REFUSE to charge for lessons that are substandard--so feel free to let me know how I can improve!!
I am also willing to negotiate my rate depending on your unique circumstances. I do request cancellation NO LESS THAN 3 HOURS prior to meeting, but am more than willing to reschedule lessons that are missed (flexibility is key!) If a lesson is canceled without sufficient notice, I charge 50% of my customary hourly fee to recoup lost time with other potential clients.
3 hours notice required
I can adjust my rate on a case-by-case basis. Cancellation fee is 50% of regular hourly fee.
