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.

ACT English

I have three years of in classroom experience teaching test prep at the high school level. I hold a Master's degree in education and I have real strategies that can help you learn to conquer this test. It isn't a test that tests what you know, it is a test that tests how well you take this particular exam. I will help you through it so that you get your highest personal score.

American History

History can be confusing because of the timelines. Let's talk and I will show you how to keep all that straight so that history can come alive for you! I have extensive teaching experience and will combine that with my love for American history so that it helps you!

Anthropology

If you need help in Anthropology, this is a great place to start. I have 22 years of teaching experience. My master's degree in education has opened doors that have allowed opportunites to teach all history, including the study of the origin of man.

I was lucky enough to study under Richard Leaky in college for one class/workshop. My experience with hands on Anthropology is also extensive because of the access I have had to dig sites. I grew up and studied in New Mexico and was able to work on Anasazi dig sites.

I would be happy to share my experiences with you!

Art History

If you are a visual learner struggling with any kind of History, I would love to put my expertise to use for you. Art history is a visual representation of most other times in history. It is a great way to connect with other subjects.

I hold a master's degree in education and Bachelor's degree in design. The history of Art has been at the center of what I teach for the last 20 years.

A little eye training will help you discern the subtleties in the eras of art history while you are pleasantly surprised to discover cross curricular connections to other subjects.

Bible Studies

I have 12 years of teaching experience in the Christian classroom and Sunday School format.

My education includes in depth Biblical studies that look at the Bible in comparison to other religious texts as well as the definitive word of God.

As a teacher of literature, I am able to make the Bible approachable to those who are most confused by the language. As a Christian I am able to make the text tangible to anyone, especially those outside the faith.

English

I have 22 years of teaching experience both in studios and the traditional classroom. I have taught English for grade levels 7- 12.

I can help you master reading, writing and verbal skills. You will gain a solid understanding of the fundamentals of grammar as well as literary tools like voice, tone and intent.

English can be confusing because for every rule there is an exception. Let's map that out together so you can find success!

General Music

With a bachelor's degree in performance, theatre, music and dance, general music is a skill that is a "must" to survive in the industry.

I have taught general music, theory and basic sight reading for the last 22 years in the classroom.

I have discovered that a general music foundation, helps students succeed across the board. They are especially successful in areas like math and reasoning. This is because of the way music and music knowledge help you think. You find patterns and systems in things that help navigate tougher subjects like math.

Hard Of Hearing

I have 12 years of teaching experience integrating ASL into the classroom. The bulk of this experience comes with working with non verbal special needs kids. It was the most effective way to get them to communicate.

I have also led 2 different groups of students to engage in ASL so that they were able to pass proficiency tests in the language.

I received my training from a combination of college studies and direct instruction from deaf community members in my various work places.

I have passed proficiency tests for schools I have worked in as well as for Walt Disney World. I was able to serve as a translator in emergency situations. It is important to note that I am NOT a translator by certification.

My training in ASL as well as my extensive background in speech and diction are blended together in a method that helps those who are hard of hearing not only get a handle on their hearing loss, but take control of their own language skill and ability.

Public Speaking

I have a master's degree in theatre and educational leadership. I have taught public speaking and theatre for the last 20 years in both the private sector and public school arena. Furthermore, I have coached public speaking teams in competitions and served as an official public speaking/debate adjudicator.

SAT Reading

I have three years of in classroom experience teaching test prep at the high school level. I hold a Master's degree in education and I have real strategies that can help you learn to conquer this test. It isn't a test that tests what you know, it is a test that tests how well you take this particular exam. I will help you through it so that you get your highest personal score.

Sign Language

I have 12 years of teaching experience integrating ASL into the classroom. The bulk of this experience comes with working with non verbal special needs kids. It was the most effective way to get them to communicate.

I have also led 2 different groups of students to engage in ASL so that they were able to pass proficiency tests in the language.

I have passed proficiency tests for schools I have worked in as well as for Walt Disney World. I was able to serve as a translator in emergency situations. It is important to note that I am NOT a translator by certification.

Speech

I have an extensive background in speech performance and education. My experience with teaching speech began 22 years ago.

My method includes breathing to find your center, and projecting from that core. You will learn to control your breath, projection, and lexicon. Further, I concentrate on muscular control to help you increase your pronunciation and understanding. Diction training to improve overall communication. The muscular work will help eliminate things like slurs and lisps. The breathing will help control things like stutters. Lastly, I will help understand and improve your temporal resonance auditory processing so that you can more effectively hear yourself when communicating.

The holistic view includes automatic self esteem increases with specific work on taking control of your own eloquence.

You will find energy and focus increases as well as a strong sense of control.

Let's chat!

Study Skills

I was a classroom teacher of K-12 for the past 22 years. I taught both core classes and elective classes. In every subject taught, I would build my curriculum on the strong foundation of "ability to study". If students did not have the right study skills, they simply didn't succeed. I started with an assessment that determined their best method of learning. Not all students are the same. Scores and attitudes rose, dramatically, when the student connected with the right learning style. It was truly a joy to watch.

Theater

I have been performing and teaching theatre arts for the past 22 years. I have performed professionally in 3 different states and taught in 4. I hold a bachelor's degree in theatre arts. I have studied and received additional training in New York City and Chicago. I have also begun work on my PhD in theatre from CU Boulder.

World History

History can be confusing because of timelines. I can help with that and so much more that tends to make the subject confusing. I have strategies that have worked throughout the years that I can share with you to make history come alive! I have 25 years of teaching experience and would love to put that to work to help build your success!

Writing

I have been teaching for the last 22 years. In those years I have taught English to grades 7-12. I concentrated on writing and reading comprehension.

In the writing component of my approach, I really worked with the students on format, grammar and the strength of their voice in their writing.

I also concentrated on varying styles of writing such as: persuasive, expository, prose and poetry.

I would love to help!

I am so grateful to have found Kristin!

My daughter was very specific with regard to her sign language tutor's criteria..."she must be fun"! Well, every session with Kristin not only challenges my daughter, but she is laughing and smiling the whole time. She looks forward to each lesson and takes her homework very seriously. Kristin keeps a high-energy, wiggly 10 year old focused for over and hour and I am amazed at the progress she bri
