About Kristina

Hi there! I am a Kindergarten teacher and have been working in education for four years. I take pride in both my work and my student's work. I use a growth mindset approach with my students. When they say they can't complete a skill, I say that they can't do it "yet." I believe that building a child's confidence can go a long way in order to reach their goal. I believe in providing repetitious activities that are engaging and that relate directly to what the student needs to learn. Because I teach during the day, I am available Friday evenings as well as the weekend.

Please send me a message if you have any questions or would like to book a tutoring session.

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.

Common Core

Being as I am enrolled in the teaching credential program at California State University, Stanislaus, I have been well exposed to Common Core. It is truly an amazing curriculum being implemented. Students use reasoning skills to come to conclusions. It allows for a deeper level of thinking for the whole child. Instead of merely coming to an answer, students have to explain how and why they believe that way. When I long term substitute teach, I have been teaching the Common Core standards, and it's truly a beautiful thing seeing student's reasoning. When discussed as a class, it helps struggling students.

Elementary (K-6th)

My Bachelor's degree is in Liberal Studies for elementary teaching. My heart and soul goes into education. Currently, I'm enrolled in a teaching credential program while I long term substitute teach. I have learned many different teaching strategies to reach children of all abilities and special needs. Before substitute teaching, I was a substitute paraprofessional. This position helped me explain myself in ways that I never could reaching children with learning handicaps and special needs.

Phonics

I have worked as a long term substitute teacher for a kindergarten class at the beginning of the school year. I taught my students the sounds of letters, and at the end of my time with the students, they were already beginning to blend CVC words! I am also taking a reading methods class in the teaching credential. I have many resources to grab from as well as many strategies to help students.
