About Kristen

Experience in Education: 15 years
Degree:
Major - Spelman College [ Magna Cum Laude ] Political Science (Pre-Law)
Minor - Creative Arts

I have always enjoyed helping people learn. While in high school, I volunteered as a tutor for elementary school students in low-income households around the Sacramento area. As a student at Spelman College, I continued to volunteer as a tutor for low-income families in the Atlanta area.

Since relocating to Los Angeles, California 10 years ago, I have worked in various areas of the educational world. Along with serving as a Private Consultant to assist charter schools with updating their curriculum, I have also worked as an Intervention Specialist, providing students with the greatest learning challenges the extra one-on-one assistance needed to help them reach their maximum learning potential. Additionally, I continue to work as a tutor for low-income families throughout the Los Angeles area and substitute teach for LAUSD.

I specialize in Elementary and Middle School Education, but I also have a lot of experience working with high school and college students in a variety of subjects. Please feel free to send me a message for more information on those subjects.

As a teacher/tutor, I stress the importance of positive reinforcement in the classroom as well as in each tutoring session. I also believe that everyone is capable of being successful academically, sometimes it just takes a different approach!

I am available work with students in Los Angeles as well in surrounding cities.

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 really enjoy helping people learn and I have worked as a tutor for elementary age students (K-6th) for over 15 years. In high school, I started working as a tutor for elementary age children from low-income families. I continued working as a tutor for the same demographic of students while attending Spelman College. I have also worked as a Private Consultant, to assist charter schools with updating their curriculum, and as an Intervention Specialist, providing students with the greatest learning challenges the extra one-on-one assistance needed to help them reach their maximum learning potential. As an intervention specialist, I worked primarily with students in grades K-8.

I have continued to work as a tutor around Los Angeles and surrounding areas, and I also currently work as an Elementary Substitute Teacher for LAUSD.

Political Science

I graduated from Spelman College with Honors from the Political Science department. I also won 2nd place in The Spelman College Research Day Awards for my thesis in the area of Political Science. I worked as a tutor in the area of political science for other students while at Spelman. Since graduating from college, I have continued to work as a Political Science tutor for students attending several colleges in the Los Angeles area.
