About Kristen

I have a Master's degree in Adult Education and have taught at Job Corps (trade, career prep and GED), Santa Fe College, substituted at the Alachua county school board and tutored adults and children of Korean background in English. My undergraduate work is in the Social Sciences/Psychology. I will begin working towards my teaching certification for 6-12 in Fall 2016. I also have 15 graduate credit hours in ESE education and am comfortable with special needs children. I am comfortable with almost any subject but math. English, reading, writing, some science, and social studies would be a good fit.

I have a lot of patience and try to stay upbeat with the younger students to make learning as fun and interesting as possible. I have two children of my own (now both high schoolers) and have always been very hands on with their school work and academic progress.

I have always worked in Education and Social Services so I am very people friendly and can meet my students where they are while challenging and encouraging them to keep moving forward. I am approachable and genuinely care that my students gain the skills/confidence that they need to be successful.

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.

Career Development

I have worked as a Cosmetology instructor with strong focus on business and career development/preparation. I have taken several business courses and worked with the Small Business Administration to complete a business plan for my own business. I also taught at the Job Corps Center where I taught Career Preparation which included; trade exploration, student employment interest tests (ONet, Career Scope), employability, dressing for success, resume writing and interviewing and interpersonal skills.

Cosmetology

I have been a licensed Cosmetologist in the state of Florida since 1985. I taught Cosmetology for a year at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida until the program was closed. I have worked as a stylist, a manager for a corporate salon, and an educator.
