About Kristen

Hello!

I am certificated to teach English language arts through the State of California. I have five years of experience teaching English at the high school and middle school levels and five years experience tutoring reading, writing, and study skills to students grades K-10. I am currently working at a nearby public library, where I run the Children's section. I am also an amateur fiction writer.

I love what I do because it gives me the opportunity to affect students lives in a positive way. I was always a very studious kid. I loved reading and going to school and I've always wanted to share this passion with others. I sincerely believe that education, reading, and communicating effectively leads to a more stable, reasonable, and peaceful society. After teaching in a formal school setting for five years, I realize that this cannot be achieved through the American school system. Standards requirements and testing and the everyday social sludge of the modern day public school inhibit learning and we must encourage students to take control of their education and pursue every alternative form of learning at their disposal. This means reading and developing personal relationships with independent tutors who can help students achieve their academic goals.

Five years of teaching experience in English language arts; ten years experience as a fiction writer; a life-long love affair with reading great classic and contemporary literature.
