About Kristin

I have experience tutoring reading proficiency and comprehension at the K-5th grade level, and have also assisted students in preparing for the Verbal and Writing sections of the SAT exam. I'm a professional fiction writer, and am currently enrolled in university on the path to becoming a creative writing instructor. I have always done well academically, enjoy helping others learn and grow, and I love working with kids.

I participate weekly in Reading Partners, a tutoring program for students K-5th who need assistance with their reading skills. The tutors work one-on-one with students to help them improve their fluency, vocabulary, word recognition, and reading comprehension. Last year the student I worked with tested above grade level and no longer needs to be in the program; I miss working with her but am very proud of her accomplishments!

I'm also available to tutor adult students in subjects such as English, Literature, Essay Writing, Creative Writing, and Technical Writing, and in computer skills such as Web Design, Graphic Design, and Photoshop, with 8+ years experience in the interactive design industry.
