I love to tutor! While getting my undergraduate math degree, I used to tutor college students in College Algebra, Business Statistics, and Business Calculus. Also was a private tutor/consultant for a graduate level statistics course. While in undergrad, I tutored students beginning at 2nd all the way to 12th grade. This included: Geometry, Algebra 3, Middle school exit exam prep, Calculus, SAT prep, 4th grade, and 6th grade math. I started off the session by asking them what they needed help in, as well as giving them a few questions, give them a few minutes to work on them, and then explain how they did it to me. This way, I was able to see their thinking process when it comes to them doing math. It helps in trying to figure out the best way to help the student.
One of my biggest excitements happened when the mother of the student that I was tutoring for the middle school exit exam called me and told me that her daughter's test score increased 50 points!
I just finished a Masters degree in Mathematics Education so I am a certified math teacher! I am currently a high school geometry teacher.
Also during my senior year in undergrad, I was the in-class tutor for a College Algebra 2 class. I was treated like a TA which means that I tutored students, answered questions, and even taught some lessons.

Kristen established a great rapport with my daughter. My daughter is usually a little non-chalant when she is asked about new experiences, but she was very excited to share information about her tutoring session with Kristen. She walked away excited about learning a new subject, geometry.
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.
