About Kristen

I hold a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Duke University, as well as an M.S. in Pharmacology from the University of Virginia. During my time as a student, I was also a tutor in the Biochemistry department and a teaching assistant in the Chemistry department. I taught a recitation session and guided students through problem sets that applied the knowledge they learned in lectures. I am passionate about helping students learn to think critically. I believe in teaching the process, not just the answers, so that students can succeed after they complete their homework or test. We will work through concepts as we complete problem sets, and I will give periodic evaluations to gauge the student's progress and understanding of the big picture.

I was a successful AP Calculus student in high school and continued to use upper-level math throughout my science studies in college and graduate school. I have a strong math background as well as application experience, so I can help students understand the usefulness of math in their future careers or just everyday life. Additionally, in my undergraduate and graduate work, I used biology, biochemistry, genetics, and chemistry concepts everyday as a I conducted research in a laboratory for my thesis and was a Chemistry and Biochemistry tutor at both universities.

Respect for others' time, planning, and time management are all important life skills, but I do realize life happens. Therefore I have an 8-hour cancellation policy and offer make-up sessions. If cancellations are made 2-8 hours prior to the scheduled lesson, a 50% lesson fee will be charged. If you are a no show or cancel within 2 hours of the lesson, I will assess the entire session fee.

I look forward to working with your student and helping them learn to love biology, chemistry, and math!

Please contact me to learn more about my services and to schedule your first lesson!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

I scored in the top percentile on the ACT. Additionally, I have completed up through advanced Calculus in my courses, so I have a strong math background. I have researched changes to the ACT over the years and prepared a curriculum for teaching ACT Math. Each student will be evaluated and given a customized plan based on this curriculum.

Chemistry

I hold a minor in Chemistry from Duke University. Additionally, I have completed graduate-level biochemistry courses.
