About Kristen

When I started college in the fall of 2008, I was running Division III Women’s Cross Country. It was in this activity that I found my pride and belonging. A year later, due to an injury, I could no longer compete at the required level of intensity. Not wanting to miss a beat, I decided to dedicate myself to something else: tutoring.

I actually started working as a math tutor the second semester of my freshman year. Knowing that I wanted to become an English tutor, I figured if I got my foot in the door, it would only be a matter of time. One semester later, I became a writing tutor. When I stopped running cross-country, I upped my tutoring hours. Helping students prepare for exams and projects was quite rewarding. By the time I was a senior in college, I was in high demand. During my tenure, I tutored English writing, spoken language with ESL students, business subjects, as well as math with a younger boy from the city of Springfield. Reflecting back now, it was not on the race course but in this role that I ultimately found my pride and belonging.

I have tutored a great range of students, from 9-year-olds to 50-year-olds, including ESL students. I take a consultative approach and adjust my style to fit each student's unique disposition. My students laugh a lot during our sessions, but they learn even more!

This past May, I graduated from the University of Kentucky with my MBA and accepted a Program Manager position with Tufts Health Plan. In my spare time, I'd like to use my talent to help others achieve their goals. Please let me know how I can be of assistance!

Experience Summary:
.5 year Math tutor (college level)

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.
