Kennesaw State University (Secondary English)
Hi there! My name is Kristy and I'm an avid consumer of knowledge and lover of learning, and I look forward to being able to help encourage you or your children to be the same.
I'm a Georgia-certified teacher of English with more than ten years of experience working with children, teenagers, and young adults in a variety of contexts. I always wanted to be a teacher, even from a very young age. By the time I'd gotten into college, I'd been misled into believing that I should major in something that could be more lucrative.
It took all of a semester for me to decide very quickly that I'd rather do what I love than work for a paycheck. This thought process guided me through my education and graduation, and it has guided me since as well. From an early age, I fell in love with the performing arts, but not as an actor -- I realized quickly that I simply enjoyed working with people to create something beautiful and inspiring. I became a director, then a board member, and then the Program Director, all in a matter of years. I've become so incredibly passionate about teaching through personal interaction within the community.
I have experience working with a variety of students across the academic spectrum, including some with mild learning disabilities. As a part of my education degree and the student teaching experiences involved, I've engaged recently in the current expectations for Georgia students and have a solid understanding of what is expected of them. More than that, my experience working with teenagers over the last decade have provided me with a variety of tools for encouragement and confidence-building. I believe that at the core of learning is confidence, and that boosting that can ultimately make all the difference. Hi there!

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.
I hold an English degree from Kennesaw State University and am certified in the state of Georgia to teach secondary English for 6-12 grades. I have two semesters of student teaching and years of informal tutoring through high school and college.
