About Krysten

Chemistry is my passion. I have been intensely involved in chemistry education for 7 years now. I started in college at the University of Illinois as a chemistry major and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in chemistry in 2013. In 2011 I started working as a chemistry teaching assistant where I lead small class discussion sections and taught lab sections. My love for teaching was discovered during those 2 years of working as a teaching assistant. During that time, I was ranked as our campus’s List of Instructors Ranked Excellent by Students for the spring 2013 semester. This is a distinct honor, and one that is earned by only about 10% of the instructors.

I have been working as an AP chemistry teacher the past two years at a south-side Chicago high school and honors chemistry teacher the past 3 years as well. I have been known to instill a love for chemistry in students that started my course disliking the subject all together. I have hopes not only to aid in your understanding of the subject and raise your grades, but to also help build proper study habits and improve organizational skills as a student.

I have a flexible after-school schedule and offer make-up classes; however, I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy. I look forward to hearing from you and helping your achieve success in chemistry!

Excellent tutor, very knowledgeable and makes chemistry easy to understand!

I had my first lesson with Krysten and I am more than satisfied. I struggle with chemistry, but Krysten was able to break down complicated formulas and explain them in an easy and concise manner. She definitely knows her chemistry, and I already feel confident just after my first session with her. I look forward to continuing my tutoring lessons with Krysten!
