About Kristine


Bio

I have taught English for the past 16 years in a high school setting. Before that, I taught in a Montessori grade school. I have a 12 year old son and love doing outdoor activities with him. I enjoy hiking and kayaking. I also love to travel and try to go to Disney world whenever I can. I divide up learning into segments so it is more manageable and not boring. I love animals and even have had a few farm animals!

I have taught English for the past 16 years in a high school setting. Before that, I taught in a Montessori grade school. I have a 12 year old son and love doing outdoor activities with him. I enjoy hiking and kayaking. I also love to travel and try to go to Disney world whenever I can. I divide up learning into segments so it is more manageable and not boring. I love animals and even have had a few farm animals!
For parents- I am aware of the current Common Core State Standards and what your child needs to know to be successful..as well as experience with the new Smarter Balance tests. I look forward to keeping sharp this summer with tutoring and perhaps sharing a favorite book or two. I enjoy current adolescent lit- Maze Runner Series, Divergent Series, Name the Wind, etc and am great at matching a book with a kid who thinks they don't like to read...until they find the right book!

I taught for over 16 years, love literature and current teen lit as well as the classics. I have two Master's degrees and am starting on a Doctorate so I have not lost my touch writing papers. I also just love reading and sharing that joy with non-readers. I can get along with the kid who just wants to work on his truck..to the kid who really wants to excel in order to score well on SAT's and be accepted at the college of his/her choice.

Please contact me- I like to tutor at the Mansfield Community Center for location/use of computers. Make your summer successful and not lose the learning that already took place this past year! Give the gift of a head start to your child for next year!
