About Kristen


Bio

I help high school and college students write essays for their classes and for college/graduate school applications. I have worked as a high school (Francis W. Parker School) and college (Columbia, Loyola, Harper) English teacher and as a textbook editor for McGraw-Hill.

I went to Kenyon College for my undergraduate degree in English, where I minored in French. I studied abroad at Oxford in England and came back to the States to earn my PhD in English Literature at Marquette...

I help high school and college students write essays for their classes and for college/graduate school applications. I have worked as a high school (Francis W. Parker School) and college (Columbia, Loyola, Harper) English teacher and as a textbook editor for McGraw-Hill.

I went to Kenyon College for my undergraduate degree in English, where I minored in French. I studied abroad at Oxford in England and came back to the States to earn my PhD in English Literature at Marquette University.

My business gives me an opportunity to work with students as they explore their post-high school and post-college options. Most choose to go to college right out of high school, but some want to work with me so they can discover their career interests and talents. I help my students identify their goals and plot out a course to reach them.

I love to help students learn to write better and appreciate literature. We usually work through the entire writing process, from brainstorming ideas to final proofreading. I look forward to working with you!

Career Development

I am qualified to teach Career Development because I work as a college and post-high school counselor. I use several assessments (a Meyers-Briggs type quiz, a narrative story interview, and the Mosaic questionnaire) to help students identify their learning and personality styles -- this will lead them to possible college major and career choices.

College Counseling

I am qualified to tutor College Counseling because I own an educational business and have been working as a college counselor for three years. I have taken classes with UCLA's Certificate in College counseling program. My experience as an English teacher makes me especially helpful when my students are composing their college application essays. Additionally, I spent several weeks each year visiting college campuses and speaking with admissions officers to learn what they are looking for during each application season.
