About Kristin

I have several years of experience in the classroom of elementary, middle and high school. I also have been an assistant with a special needs class for several years and have experience with all different kinds of learning disabilities. I am a mom of an autistic son so I know and understand those challenges as well. I have experience tutoring elementary students in math and reading as well as writing. I have taught elementary and middle school vocal and piano lessons. I also have my ESL certification and have tutored in that area.

I would love the opportunity to come along side you and help out in any way that I can. I believe learning is important but each child is unique and different. Let's work together to see what works for you and how we can make you successful!

I understand the challenges of slow readers and those who struggle with reading comprehension as well as the dyslexic student. Each needs individualized attention to overcome those obstacles.

I am currently earning my dual degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. As well as my many years is experience in each classroom as an assistant and one on one provider.

Currently earning my dual degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I have been an assistant for several years in a specialized school for kids with disabilities. But the thing that qualifies me the most is the fact that I am a mom of an autistic sin and understand challenges first hand.

Learning needs to be kept fun. We can do that and meet our goals seriously at the same time. I use praise often careful to never criticize but encourage in the needed direction. We can do great things together!

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.

ADHD

I have had experience working and tutoring children in elementary school with both ADD and ADHD. Students like this need a strong but kind hand to keep them on track and sometimes repetition over and over of the information at hand. Frequent brakes are helpful as well as using their likes to keep their focus. I am completing my degree in Elementary Ed/Special Ed at this time.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have assisted for been a teaching assistant for 3 years in a classroom for children at various levels of the Autism Spectrum. I have experience working one on one with each child which is exactly what tutoring is so that each student will reach their goals and full potential. I have set goals for each student and then worked daily one on one with them to reach his/her goals.
I understand the patience and rewards that need to be in place as well as the gentle hand to understand. I also am a mom of an 18 year old autistic son and understand the specific needs of a family with a child with Autism.

I feel I have much to offer a family with a child with Autism first by working and teaching the child through different therapy's and the use of PECS or any other communicative devices they use. I also have experience with sign language if the child is not verbal.
I am currently finishing my dual degree in Special Ed./ Elementary Ed.

I also have experience working on on one as a care worker with children with different types of disabilities from the autism spectrum and downs syndrome to name a few.
