Hello Potential Students!

It is a pleasure to be considered for your supplemental learning. My background includes graduate degrees in psychology and clinical research. I have experience one-on-one and in the classroom with elementary as well as college students. I also have career experience in professional writing and research data analysis.

My style tends to be patient and supportive while actively encouraging students to tackle challenging subject matter. I look for multiple ways to present information so that students understand it from various perspectives, able to apply their knowledge to both academic and practical situations.

I look forward to hearing from you about your particular needs and how I may be of service. Perhaps if the fit is right, our connection will turn out to be an enriching relationship for us both.

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I am convinced it is essential that children develop a strong foundation in math. Possessing a clear and sound understanding of mathematical fundamentals builds confidence. A lack of the same can affect their attitude about and their success in math for the rest of their academic careers. I not only have the materials (texts, workbooks, and games) to help children learn, I also have the patience and ability to explain the concepts in ways they understand. It is my goal to help my students see the interrelatedness of mathematical concepts as well as their practical applications.
Reading,

Reading

Written word often differs structurally from commonly spoken word. When we are unaware of such differences, it is more difficult to comprehend what we read sometimes. Not to mention, our speech and reading skills are not always at equal levels. My experience includes being able to help students learn how to read with expression, and to break down sentences in order to comprehend even complex reading – everything from storybooks to essays to academic journal articles. Along with supplementary materials to improve reading, grammar and writing (which often improves as one’s reading does), I have the patience to work with students on phonics and pronunciation. I also provide lots of encouragement as we advance toward our lesson goals.

Very Knowledgeable!

Dr. Crystal, was very knowledgable on the subject matter. She is also very pleasant. Not really knowing what to expect, the session went okay. She did cover all of the content that I presented. As an older MBA, student I was hoping to have someone who could translate stats to a simplied real-world manner, so that I can understand. Although she tried very hard, it just did not translate to to me. I would recommend her to someone who knows and understand the Statistcs language. One last comment. Make sure you and Dr. Crystal have a clear understanding of her billing and timing, prior to starting your session! That turned out to interesting to say the least. We had a conversation afterwards, and she still billed for something outside of our agreed upon time.

Tutor responded:

Thank you for the great feedback! I do apologize for any confusion regarding billing. If any of my students have any issues or questions about timing or a lesson that was submitted, they are always welcome to reach out to me via Wyzant Messaging. I am certainly willing to work with students to clarify and make adjustments. Thanks again and I hope all went well with your project. :)

Excellent!!!!

Excellent tutoring as always! We reviewed mathematics and spanish and I took the tests today and as usual with Dr. Crystal's help I got an A! I highly recommend her services.

Statistics expert

Dr. Crystal knows SPSS statistics she used illustration to make points and is good with terminology. I learn more from her that from the instruction from my school.

Professional tutor....on point!

Dr. Crystal exceeded my expectations. She was very thorough, detailed, and on point helping me with my statistics class. She ensured that I understand the concepts and subject matter. I highly recommend her, especially to the graduate students like me who need help with statistics or need somebody to critique their research, assessments and thesis thoroughly. Very professional......

Great tutor!

Dr. Crystal assisted me with step by step directions because I needed them explained to me where I could understand it. With her help and guidance I felt my confidence then what I had. Let me also say she helped me over the phone and last minute, and I really do appreciate that. I will be meeting with her again!

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your feedback! I am so glad our time benefited you! Yes, we were under a deadline, but you knew what you needed and we got it done. Way to go!

Patient and Thorough

Dr. Crystal has been helping my son with all of his 9th grade subjects. She has been a huge help in getting him to not only change and increase work habits, but also to understand concepts he was behind in. He feels that she motivates him to do better. I have found her to be caring, patient and accommodating. She does not just teach him and move on , she really CARES that Collin understands does better in his studies. She is definitely 5 STARS!!

Tutor responded:

Thank you for your wonderful feedback! I have enjoyed working with Collin, and I have seen great strides in his attitude about school and his attention to his work. Supportive parents like you, who encourage responsibility and growth in their children, make what I do that much easier. Thank you again!

Clear and Precise Tutor!

I enjoyed Dr. Crystal's style of tutoring. She was clear and very precise in redirecting the student to focus on the task at hand with an understanding. The only challenge that I had is Dr. Crystal allowing me to record the session because when processing what was said in the session later could be challenging for me, plus I have challenges because I am legally blind in my right eye, which impacts my vision. I took some notes but throughout my educational journey it has benefited me to record my sessions in order to receive the full benefit of each lecture, tutoring sessions, classroom setting or discussion. With that being said, I text messaged Dr. Crystal to see if she would allow our session to be recorded in order to benefit the student.

Personable and Professional

I have worked with Crystal on several occasions to assist with proofing my graduate papers. She provided excellent guidance with the structure, content, and grammar in my writing. As a result of her expert tutorial assistance, I was able to pass my courses successfully. Crystal is articulate and does her due diligence relative to inquiry of assignment requirements on behalf of the student. Her ability to discern the tasks and requirements of the assignment are exactly the skills that students need in the absence of their academic instructor. Her knack for inquiry was great and provided me with the tools and confidence I needed to make the proper corrections in my writings and add to it the clarity needed which enabled me to succeed in my coursework. I would recommend her any day of the week, she is a great person to work with and has the knowledge and skills to go along with her pleasant personality.
