Hello! My name is Kristin and I would love to tutor you or your child!
Here are some of my qualifications:
I've taught high school science for 5 years, both in an urban, lower income school and an exemplary rated, nationally recognized school. Thus, I've worked with all types of students.
I've taught IPC, biology, and chemistry.
I completed my teacher training with the prestigious Teach for America program and I currently work with them as an Instructional Coach to train new teachers in the classroom.
I have 3 years of tutoring experience, both with a company and as an independent contractor.
I graduated with honors from Texas A&M University with a degree in Biomedical Science and Psychology. I also have a masters degree from the University of Houston in Science Education.
My tutoring personality:
I would first like to say that I firmly believe that every student can learn any subject. To achieve that, I try to break the information down into smaller pieces to make it easier for students to comprehend. Also, I show students how to figure out what is the most important information so that they can more quickly master the material. I love watching a student make progress and see the "lightbulb" go off as they realize they actually get it! Because of my teaching experience, I know what kinds of questions that teachers are likely to ask on tests, and I use this information to my students' advantage.
I am qualified to tutor in study skills because I have been a classroom teacher for five years, an instructional coach for one year, have a master's degree in curriculum and instruction, and have over 300 hours of tutoring experience with WyzAnt. I have worked with a variety of students and have a 5.0 rating over 300 hours of work. I am able to introduce many different methods of instruction and studying because of my background in education and teaching.
