About Kristen

My degrees from Loyola University Chicago are in English, Secondary Education and ESL. I have experience teaching English, ESL, Creative Writing as well as Reading courses for all age levels. I specialize in working with students in grades 6-12.

I am passionate about literature and writing. I decided to become a teacher because I want to help spread this love and appreciation for the written word with as many people as I can. I have taught in many settings and I must say that my favorite setting in which to teach is tutoring. I love being able to give my students such individualized attention and watch them grow and learn to take the tools I give them and put them to use on their own.

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.

Reading

I graduated from Loyola in 2014 with degrees in English and in Secondary Education, as well as a minor in ESL. I have taught a summer reading course to all ages from pre-school into adulthood. I was a high school English and Creative Writing teacher. I also spent four years as a reading tutor in several elementary schools during my time at Loyola.

Writing

I am a certified English teacher. I have taught high school creative writing.
