Bio

Greetings!

I have lived in the area for almost three years, and in that time I have completed over 2500 hours of individual tutoring sessions with college, high school, and FLVS students across the greater Orlando area (through Wyzant and independently).

Greetings!

My name is Kristin and I am a Professional Tutor based in Orlando, Florida. I have lived in the area for almost three years, and in that time I have completed over 2500 hours of individual tutoring sessions with college, high school, and FLVS students across the greater Orlando area (through Wyzant and independently). I currently specialize in assistance with chemistry (all levels), but I also offer tutoring in algebra I & II, geometry, math for college readiness, SAT/ACT/PERT test prep, and other college and high school courses. I know tutoring can sometimes seem like a nerve-racking experience, but it is my goal in every session to provide a friendly and relaxed learning environment. It is my goal as a tutor to not only help you find the correct answers, but to also work with you to develop a reliable strategy for solving even the most complex problems on your own.

A little about me: I received my Master of Science degree in chemistry in 2016 from Western Carolina University. While earning my degree, I was an extremely dedicated graduate level course tutor and logged over 500 tutoring hours with 200+ individual students in just a little over one year. I facilitated one-on-one and small-group review sessions for general chemistry, organic chemistry I & II, environmental organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, mathematics, and materials science classes. During my time as a graduate student I also achieved level I & II tutoring certification by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). After obtaining my degree, I relocated to the Jacksonville, FL area to teach general and organic chemistry at the Chamberlain College of Nursing. After a year of teaching, I settled here in Orlando where I worked for a year as a Chemist at The Coca-Cola Company's Florida Juice Quality Center before deciding to pursue tutoring full time. Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little about me, and please feel free to message me with any questions you may have. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Organic Chemistry,

Organic Chemistry

As an undergraduate I excelled in organic chemistry; I passed both organic I & II with grades in the A+ range and also received honors credit for both organic classes after completing supplemental coursework. As a chemistry graduate student I tutored over 500 hours worth of organic I & II sessions with students who needed help with the fundamentals of chemistry (bonding, molecular geometries, Lewis structures, etc.) to students who just wanted practice reviewing reaction mechanisms and synthesis problems. As a professional tutor, I have met with hundreds of students over the past 3 years and find the most joy in helping people to understand challenging organic concepts and to succeed in their classes.
