My name is Kirsten F., and I'm here to help you with your tutoring needs. I currently teach 7th and 8th grade English. I have taught high school as well, and have worked with students at all academic levels. I have experience working with students with educational challenges and can help with organizational skills and study skills as well. I know that sometimes we all feel overwhelmed with rigorous classroom expectations and with pressures associated with testing. I'm here to help you find ways to break the work into manageable pieces and find ways to present your best work.
Let's work together to achieve success. I am willing to drive to meet you or work with you online. I am computer literate, and love to utilize technology in my classroom as a way to support my students and encourage independent learning. I can be flexible with my time, and am willing to give you the support you need to excel. Let's talk soon!
I am an experienced proofreader, and am familiar with the SAT and MCAS testing requirements.

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 am certified to teach middle school English (grades 5-8), and I have worked with students in a therapeutic school setting whose academic instructional levels varied from emergent reader to above grade level. I am able to work with students across a variety of instructional levels and academic abilities.
I am certified to teach English for grades 5 through 12. I have worked with students in various academic success programs, both here and in Maine, helping them improve their academic and organizational skills.
I am certified to teach English for grades 5 through 12. I have worked in an after school test prep program, preparing students to take the MCAS and the SAT successfully.
I am certified to teach special needs (mild to moderate disabilities) for grades 5-12, and include study and organizational skills in my classes regularly. My current school has daily intervention sessions, which focus on teaching and improving these skills by using agendas, graphic organizers, and other tools. In addition, I have worked with special needs students for almost 10 years in a variety of settings and situations, with study skills a component of every program. For example, I teach students how to scan a text for important information, how to highlight necessary details, how to create outlines, and how to effectively take notes.
