About Kristi

34saStudents and Teachers!
I am a veteran teacher who has taught in the public school system for 25 years. I have taught students from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I love to learn, and therefore I love to teach. I have a masters degree in Gifted Education, so I understand those students who want to do well and get frustrated. I also have taught remediation students who need someone who will take the time to make sure that they understand the basics.
I love math, and I enjoy teaching students to enjoy math. So many times they enter a tutoring situation hating the subject, and much of the work is to give the student confidence in themselves. The rest is easy. I am very familiar with the Common Core curriculum, and also have also used the Arkansas Benchmark curriculum. I like to create fun and interesting lessons that get the students involved.
I am an energetic, happy person who wants to help kids succeed.
I have tutored students for the ACT, and also student teachers who needed to pass the math portion of the Praxis test. I have a 12 hour cancellation policy, but will work with your schedule. Tutoring locations can be arranged, and I am open to tutoring on-line.

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.

Aspergers

I have a masters degree in Special Education with a major in Gifted, Talented and Creative Education. This is similar to the how high functioning students with Aspergers usually need to be taught. I have an 18 year old son with Aspergers who is a National Merit Scholar.

Common Core

I have been trained in 4th-8th grade Common Core math through the Educational Coop in Melbourne, and have had a group of students take the PARCC test this year in mathematics.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an Arkansas teaching license that allows me to teach elementary subjects grades 1-6, and middle level licenses for math/science and literacy/social studies. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.

Music History

I have a music education degree from Arkansas Tech University. This included 2 advanced courses of music history. I feel I could help someone with the information that deals with music history

Prealgebra

National Board Certified Teacher- Middle Childhood Generalist, Who's Who Among America's Teachers, lead math coach, experienced tutor in Pre-Algebra.

Trumpet

I played the trumpet from 6th grade throughout my college career. I have a BA in music education with the trumpet being my major instrument.
