About Kristy

Hello,
My name is Kristy M. I am a thirty-something mom to a wonderful, precocious five-year-old daughter. I also run a children’s and family portrait business part time.

Before the birth of my daughter I spent ten years as an elementary school teacher. I taught K-2 and also worked after school with 5th-8th graders on homework and tutoring. I connect very well to kids of all ages because I listen to them and try to learn what is important to them. I am firm but not strict, and kids will find it pretty difficult to get one over on me. But I have a great sense of humor and I believe in making learning fun.

I am looking for part time employment starting now.
I am energetic, organized and reliable. I love working with kids. My favorite subjects to teach were math, writing and reading. I was one semester shy of getting my Reading Specialist certificate when my daughter was born. Someday I will go back but I am having too much fun being a mom!

I am proficient in teaching the math common core standards through Grade 5. I like to use manipulatives whenever possible to make math more concrete, and fun, for kids.

I have a strong knowledge of language and literacy development in children. I am familiar with the most common reading challenges and can easily develop strategies to overcome them. I really enjoy teaching both reading and writing and I have a bag of tricks.

I really love teaching. I am excited to meet you and hope to hear from you soon. Please contact me to schedule an appointment. I’d love to meet you and see if I am a good fit for your family. Please email me. Thanks and have a great evening.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received my BA in Elementary Education from Rowan University in 2003. I was a classroom teacher from 2003 through 2011. I have also tutored students in Grades 3-6 in multiple subjects. I am currently a stay at home mom but I like to read and research topics in elementary education for the day when I go back to teaching full time.

Phonics

I received my BA in Elementary Education from Rowan University in 2003. I was a classroom teacher from 2003 through 2011. In 2009 I began classes to receive my Reading Specialist's certificate. In 2010 I took a break from MA level courses for maternity leave but plan to finish my specialist's certificate soon.
