About Kristi

I specialize in Reading and Language Arts. I have taught Kindergarten for one year and have worked with many different grade levels over the course of 2 years. I have helped students who are skilled readers to students who are just learning their alphabet. I have helped these students prepare for standardized testing in Math and Reading. My goals for tutoring are to achieve success with all of my students. I strive to help meet the student where they are in learning and help them grow from there. I also look for what learning style to student learns and do my best to work with them in that way.

I appreciate any feedback my students have to give. My goal is to be there for them when needed and to help them succeed in all areas of learning. I strive to be the best teacher I can be and hope that shows through my students.

I have been trained in MLPP and Orton Gillingham. I have worked with many struggling readers and taught them successful reading strategies.

I have taught Kindergarten for 1 year, 1st grade for 6 months, and tutored many other grade levels. I know where students need to start and where they need to end up.

I know zoophonics, which helps young learners use a more hands-on way of learning the alphabet. I know what blends, letter sounds, and sound spelling level students should be at.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies! Please contact me to schedule a lesson.

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.
