About Kristen

I'm a recent graduate of the University of Maine at Farmington and I have a degree in Secondary Education Social Studies as well as a degree in History with a minor in music. I'm a certified 7-12 educator for the State of Maine. I've spent time as a writing and grammar tutor for students at the University of Maine at Farmington and I've student taught in middle school and high school social studies classrooms.

I feel that tutoring a student requires the educator to first get to know and understand the student and how he or she operates with the course material. After seeing the student's ability and struggles it will then be able to determine the best route for success whether it requires direct instruction or a creative angle.

In writing, especially, I tend to read the piece together with the student. If there is a sentence or paragraph with the problem I will ask questions - does this sound right, does it look right, what might we change? I try not to tell the student the answer too quickly so that he or she can figure it out and learn from the mistakes they've made.
