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.

Great Approach and Care

Kristina’s experience and knowledge really show. My son enjoys doing work with her and his grades have quickly improved. The best thing is she genuinely cares and that quality is invaluable. I highly recommend her.

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!
