About Kristy

As a high school English teacher of fifteen years, I have had experience working with all types of students and just about every learning style there is. I have worked with struggling readers, students with limited English proficiency, students with learning disabilities, and gifted students. My last teaching job was at Boston Latin School, where I worked with many students on their college essays. Recently, I ran a restorative justice program outside of the city, working with academically reluctant students helping them to make better choices, create plans for success, and find helpful resources for the work they have in all subjects.
My strengths as a teacher are not limited to just my experience, but also my sense of humor and relatability. Students I have taught or tutored in the past still stay in touch. I have been told that I am easy to talk to and I have a gift for explaining difficult concepts in simple terms. I love to laugh and believe all learning and most work can be fun if approached correctly. Though English is my subject of expertise, I also have experience helping students with study skills and general motivation.

I have 15 years of experience as a high school English teacher. I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching
and I am a Massachusetts licensed educator for English grades 9-12.

Please get in touch and let's find a way to make your summer both fun and educational all at the same time- especially if you are looking for help with college essays. Teaching the art and craft of essay writing is a passion of mine. I have never assigned an essay. I have only taught students how to write them.
