About Kristy

I currently work in Higher education at CPCC and have professionally mentored students at UNCC, for which I am certified. My previous employment also includes working for the Greater Enrichment after school Program in Charlotte where I aided students with their homework and assisted and lead physical education activities, arts and crafts and creative play for math, English, and science subjects. I was also employed as tutor for GEP assisting K-2 students in Language Arts. I am currently maintaining a 4.0 GPA in my graduate studies and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA from UNCC's Anthropology program.

I absolutely love tutoring and/or mentoring because it brings me joy to see the look on a student's face when they meet or exceed their goals. I believe academic success is not measured in A's and B's, but by the confidence students gain by improving their academic performance overall. I also believe tutoring should be a process of encouragement, praise and fun in a supportive environment.

I am currently pursuing an 18 credit English concentration as part of my Master's degree and writing is one of my strongest academic pursuits.

I am currently employed as an academic advisor at CPCC so I am extremely well versed in the requirements for college and the transfer process for NC colleges.

I am a voracious reader and writer in my spare time and my academic experience is Language art/humanities based.

My academic career is steeped in the Liberal Arts tradition which fosters critical thinking, free flowing ideas and is humanities based. I offer learning assessments and study skills in addition to time management, motivational and self exploration activities. Please contact me so we can work together to help you achieve your academic goals!

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.

My undergraduate major was in Anthropology, with a concentration in Applied Anthropology. I excelled in my studies, being inducted in the Anthropology honor society and graduating with a 4.0/4.0 GPA.

Archaeology was my sub-field specialization within my Anthropology major. I have also taken additional Archaeology classes at the graduate level as well as attended an archaeological field during my undergrad studies.

I tutored elementary school students across all subjects for over two years as an employee for the Greater Enrichment Program in Charlotte. I served as a tutor for K-3, a classroom assistant for 4th graders and a lead teacher of 2nd graders.

I have been an avid reader all my life and have completed numerous literature courses as part of my Master's degree, part of which I am completing as a concentration in English.
