About Kristen

I am 30 years old and have been working with children since I was 16 years-old. I started out babysitting and working as a teachers aide after school at a preschool, then became a private Kindergarten teacher, and am now teaching Kindergarten in the public school. I also worked for the Newton public schools doing ABA work and working with children with special needs. I truly enjoy working with children academically and watching them grow and prosper. I have tutored elementary aged children in math, English language arts, writing, etc and can provide many references. I look forward to helping your child grow!

Thank you,

Kristen

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have my M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education with and with out Disabilities. I worked as a special educational aide for 4 years in the Newton Public Schools. I currently teach Kindergarten for the Brockton Public Schools. I have made progress with my students diagnosed with ADD/ADHD by providing accommodations for them. Some accommodations are fidgets, special chair, body breaks, extra time on work, quiet work space away from children, etc.

Autism

I worked as a Special Education Aide at the Newton Public Schools. I worked one-on-one and in a small group setting with children who had Aspergers. I had to model appropriate pro-social skills, participation, adult behaviors and problem-solving skills and assist staff in the management of student behavior by applying proactive strategies when dealing with student behaviors. I made many social stories, behavioral charts, and modifications to the curriculum to best educate the individual child.
I have also taken many graduate level courses that specialize in Autism.

Phonics

I have my M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education with and without Special Needs and teach Kindergarten for the Brockton Public Schools. I have experience with Wilsons Fundations. I also instruct many small group response to intervention groups using a variety of strategies that help students learn phonics. I have experience with Reading Street and Lively Letters, which help to teach phonics.

Special Needs

I have my M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education with and with out Disabilities. I worked as a special educational aide for 4 years in the Newton Public Schools. I currently teach Kindergarten for the Brockton Public Schools. I have made progress with my special needs students by modifying their curriculum, using visuals, making and implementing behavioral charts and incentives for them, and so on.
