About Krissy

I'm a graduate student at UH Manoa, working on my PhD in oceanography. I have both a master's and bachelor's in microbiology with an emphasis in environmental science and a minor in chemistry. I've worked previously with K-12 students as a science mentor for science fair projects, participated in ocean science community education events, and developed curriculum for K-12 science education kits. I specialize in chemistry, biology, microbiology, molecular biology, and general science.

My interest in tutoring stems from my love of helping people. I'm lucky and excited to study the world around me and like to share my passion for science with my students. It's exciting for me when hard work pays off, and suddenly things "click". I believe that each student has a different learning process and style. As a tutor, my goal is to guide students through their particular learning process to help them progress to the next level, whatever it may be. Since each student works at their own pace, I work to engage students in a lesson or activity that helps me understand their current level of understanding, meet them at their level, and together we can progress to the next.

I'm typically available weekday afternoons and evenings (3:00 - 8:00) and Saturdays for tutoring sessions. My base rate is $40/hour for in-person meetings.

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.

Chemistry

I minored in Chemistry while working on my Bachelor's in Microbiology. As a microbiologist, and PhD student, I use chemistry techniques daily and think about the chemical environment that my study organisms interact with. Throughout my studies, I have taken the following courses:

General Chemistry
Organic Chemistry
Quantitative Analysis
Environmental Chemistry
Aquatic Chemistry
Chemical Oceanography
