About Kristin

I am an experienced, licensed classroom teacher and tutor. My primary area of expertise is English Language Arts, specifically writing and reading. I focus on developing skills that are applicable beyond my particular class. For example, when working on a assigned reading, I help students to understand not only that text but also how to read other texts of that kind. I can't always be with my students to help them to understand the details of a given text, but I can teach students how to read actively so that they can make sense of any text on their own.

I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut (BA in English, 3.6 GPA) and the University of Massachusetts (MEd in Secondary Education, 3.97 GPA.)

I work hard to make sure that my students can make sense of content and are able to connect to the knowledge that we create. There is a connection between what you already know and care about and what you need to learn! We just have to find it.

I am happy to provide further details about my background at your request.
