All of Kirsty’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Kirsty’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

I have tutored middle school, high school, and adult students in algebra I topics including basic algebraic expressions, algebraic formulas, solving algebraic equations, inequalities, graphing lines (slope, y-intercept, x-intercept), and word problems. I currently tutor middle school students in Algebra I as well as teach adult GED math classes that cover Algebra I subject matter.

Algebra 2

I have tutored high school algebra 2 and college algebra extensively in the last five years. I can work with students to refresh basic algebra skills and build on these for a solid foundation in algebra 2 from conic sections to synthetic division of polynomials and much more!

American History

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in History with a focus on American History. Courses include a survey of American history, great American leaders, American diplomatic history, history of science and technology, and American aviation history.

I have tutored middle and high school age students in American history as well as college age students in their survey (basic) American history courses.

GED

I currently teach GED classes (reading, writing, math, and science) for a local non-profit. This work includes helping students to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses, familiarizing themselves with the GED battery of tests, and focusing on specific skill sets needed to pass the exam.

Geometry

I have tutored students extensively in high school geometry over the past 5 years. In addition I currently teach GED math classes which include a geometry component.

Prealgebra

I thoroughly enjoy working with middle school students studying pre algebra. I know firsthand the importance of having a strong algebra foundation and number sense in order to succeed in high school math. My focus is on ensuring that each skill set is solid and students can apply concepts to other problems, including word problems. Who said pre algebra can't be fun?

SAT Math

SAT Math tutoring focuses on the math content (algebra I, algebra II, and geometry) as well as problem solving skills and specific SAT test taking strategies. The focus is on familiarizing the student with the test format, gaining confidence, and feeling comfortable in a testing environment.

Study Skills

I have tutored students (from middle school to college) one-on-one in study skills including note-taking, outlining, reading comprehension and strategies, test preparation, decreasing anxiety, paper-writing, learning styles, study environment, time management, listening, research, and stress management.

I worked for nine months for a tutoring company tutoring private clients in home on a contract basis. I tutored multiple students (middle and high school) in study skills and test preparation and worked for 2 years for a university tutoring center. Completed tutor training with the university. I worked one-on-one mentoring students (minimum of four months with the same student) in collegiate study skills and transitioning to university academics. I also developed tutor training manual and trained tutors in study skills techniques.

World History

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of North Texas. I have studied European history (with a focus on classical and medieval time periods) at the university level. In addition, I am of European descent and spent my early years in the European school system learning European history first hand!

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
