About Krystle

I knew I was passionate about students the moment I stepped into my first education class as an undergraduate at UCLA. Ever since, I have committed to serving as an educator and continue to learn about how to improve pedagogy (the science of teaching). As a current doctoral student in School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA, I hope to integrate my own education into my tutoring practices in order to benefit my students. Prior to entering my PhD program, I have served in various capacities as a tutor and mentor for high school and college students and could not think of anything else I'd rather be doing that is as fulfilling or fruitful as seeing someone learn more about a subject, and themselves in the process.


I specialize in writing, English language and comprehension, the GRE exam, and proofreading, advising, and coaching for college applications.

My philosophy on learning is that every student has the capacity to do well. My goal is to listen to each of my students to better understand challenges, strengths, and learning styles in order to develop the best approach for comprehending material and improving progress. Additionally, I incorporate well-researched advice and tips on effective study skills based on my academic background in education and research.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to achieve your academic goals while having fun along the way!

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.

College Counseling

I have been working in higher education for the past 7 years as a student affairs administrator, providing counseling, advising, programming, and support to undergraduates. In those years, I have worked at a community college, a large public research university, a private religiously affiliated university, and a liberal arts college. As a current PhD student in the Graduate School of Education at UCLA, I am currently studying and conducting research on higher education. In addition to having personal experience with submitting successful undergraduate, masters, and PhD applications, I currently serve on the admissions committee for my graduate program and have tangible experience on the other side of the admissions process.
