Bio

I have been working as a special ed teacher for the past 12 years. Some of this experience has been in a home-school environment, and some has been in classrooms at various schools. I have worked with youngsters from 3 - 18 years old. I enjoy working one-on-one with my students and I enjoy tutoring in a variety of academic areas.

I have been working as a special ed teacher for the past 12 years. Some of this experience has been in a home-school environment, and some has been in classrooms at various schools. I have worked with youngsters from 3 - 18 years old. I enjoy working one-on-one with my students and I enjoy tutoring in a variety of academic areas. I was a science major in college (Biology/Anthropology), yet chose to become an English teacher. I am strong in both science and English. Because I have always felt called to work with people with special needs, I obtained a Special Education credential and a Master's degree in Special Ed. My strongest areas to teach are: reading skills, writing skills, organizational skills, study skills, social skills and test-taking skills. I can help a student with science and math up through Algebra. I have a great deal of experience working with students who have learning disabilities, ADHD, high-functioning autism, emotional disturbance, or brain injury.

I love working with kids. I especially enjoy tutoring students one-on-one because I feel I can be the most effective in helping each student with his or her special needs. I have two sons of my own and have lived in the Grass Valley area for over 20 years. I do a lot of community volunteer work. You can also hear me on KVMR radio, where I am a broadcaster.

Learning to Write

My daughter was so excited to show me what she and Kristen had worked on in their session together. Kristen helped her to feel good about her writing assignment.

Beth, 15 lessons with Kristin

Kristen rocks!

Skilled, professional, and consistent. My two children have progressed in their reading skills significantly throughout their time spent with Kristen this past school year. Kristen cares. With her positivity and grace the children feel comfortable and engaged in their thoughtfully prepaired lessons. Thank you Kristen!!
