About Kristina

If you are looking for an experienced English teacher of grammar, writing, reading and language, you have come to the right place. I taught in the classroom for 22 years and now tutor at home. I have a BA and MA in English literature. Most of my teaching was at the high school and middle school levels, but I also taught third grade in South America when I lived there for one year. I believe that students need to learn in a positive atmosphere with someone who understand their needs and can guide them to success. I also believe that practice makes perfect.

I feel very fortunate that I am able to work from home in this way. It would be my pleasure and privilege to tutor you with you language needs.

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)

My California Teacher's Credential qualifies me to teach K-Adult, English, and Beginning Spanish. In addition, I have a CLAD certificate. I taught middle-school and high school Language Arts for more than twenty years including part-time English as a Second Language. I spent one year in Uruguay, South America, where I taught 3rd grade at the Uruguayan American School.

Study Skills

I am an experienced English teacher of grammar, writing, reading and language. I taught in the classroom for 22 years and now tutor at home. I have a BA and MA in English. During my tenure as a high school and middle school teacher, I realized that in addition to content, I was actually teaching my students how to study.

Very Patient — I like it when you spent a few minutes after the session talking to her about your upcoming trip and showing her the location on the map. You helped her to be more grounded and more aware of the world around her. I also like it when you encouraged her to explain what she wrote. It's important to improve speaking skills. Thank you! ...
