I am a certified chemistry teacher with over ten years of experience teaching high school chemistry classes. I have a deep understanding of chemistry. Yet, at the same time I know how to break down complex topics in a way that makes sense to students. I have taught all levels of instruction from college prep to AP chemistry. While I have taught biology, physics, ecology, and environmental science throughout my career, chemistry is by far my favorite. My undergraduate degree is in environmental science, with a strong focus on the chemistry of the environment. Recently, I earned a Master of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

I find the study of chemistry intriguing and I enjoy helping students gain a better understanding of what may be a challenging subject. As a teacher, I am motivated by the belief that a sound understanding of science will allow students to critically analyze the problems facing their communities and design creative and effective methods to solve these problems in the future. As a tutor, I am motivated by the results I see: an increase in students' understanding, improved chemical analysis skills, an increase in their enjoyment of their own class and ultimately a marked improvement in their grades and test scores.

The study of chemistry is some times a challenging one. I enjoy working with students to figure out where their misconceptions are and help clarify the subject in a way that makes sense. During my previous tutoring experience, I have noticed that the largest improvements occur after a series of tutoring sessions but even just a few sessions can make a big difference!

Please contact me to schedule a chemistry tutoring session. I look forward to working with you as you improve and enhance your understanding of chemistry.

Very patient and helpful tutor

Kristen knows how to engage her students and keep them interested. Very flexible in hours. Excellent skills in enforcing basics and building on concepts in chemistry. I would recommend her to anyone.
