About Kristin

I am a certified teacher with eleven years of teaching experience. I am licensed to teach kindergarten through eighth grade and have a subject certification in Social Studies. Currently, I am a fifth grade Language Arts teacher in Essex County. In the past eleven years I have taught grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8.

Each lesson is tailored specifically for the needs of the student that I am tutoring. I use assessments from the Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project to assess reading and comprehension.

In addition to subject tutoring, I am also available for resume and cover letter writing, specializing in educator resumes and cover letters. For the past nine years, I have served on various hiring committee, hiring teachers, aides, and administrators. I can also work with clients to prepare them for teaching interviews and demo lessons.

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.

Career Development

I am an educator who has served on hiring committees for the past nine years in a school setting. I can help clients structure cover letters and resumes for teaching positions.
