About Crystal

If you need help with Elementary School subjects, such as Reading, Writing, English, science, or social studies, look no further. As the oldest of seven children, I have helped and tutored each of my six younger siblings in a variety of subjects to aid them in their journey through the educational system. I have also assisted my husband with getting his GED and have experience in tutoring those interested in prep.

I have a love of the educational process and thoroughly enjoy the ability to learn and grow and assist those who also would like to learn and grow as they move through the educational system. Although I have never been a teacher and I do not present myself as one, I have been involved with close family, friends, and have experience tutoring through a program offered by my old high school. I have a very flexible schedule and am willing to travel to you in order to assist you with your educational needs. Let me help you reach your potential as I have done for so many others before you.

I have a bachelor's in English from Montclair State University. I have been involved in advanced placement English classes since I was in elementary school and have a command of the English language that will definitely help me assist you in this area.

When I was in third grade, I went to the National Spelling Bee. I have been an amazing speller since I was very young and have many tricks that can assist you in a variety of ways when it comes to spelling.

By trade, I'm a computer programmer and I can assist you whether your needs are for operating system navigation, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Office, or something more specialized, such as learning a computer programming language.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding my qualifications or if you would like to schedule some lessons with an experienced tutor who wants nothing more than to assist you in meeting your goals.

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.

American History

As an avid scholar in the realm of American History myself, I have assisted as a student teacher in the areas of American and World History over the last two years in my hometown of Riverside, NJ.

Computer Programming

As a computer programmer by trade, I have been employed over the course of the past eleven years as an HL7 (Health Level 7) integration engineer in various healthcare organizations, such as Atlantic Health System and Emergency Medical Associates. I have a strong knowledge of SQL Server and have written code fragments that get incorporated into stored procedures, triggers, functions, temporary tables, and can both extract information already available within the database or update/insert information that needs to be in the database. I also have experience with Visual Basic, Objectscript, Tool Command Language (TCL), Python, VB Script, Batch scripting, and Powershell. I have worked with both Linux/Unix and Windows operating systems and have utilized Corepoint, Cloverleaf, Ensemble, and Epic Bridges at various points to create/modify HL7 code.

Computer Science

I currently work in the field of computer science as an integration engineer for Atlantic Health System. In this role, I'm responsible for data migration with regards to hl7 messages and programming that will allow those messages to be sent from one ancillary system to another and performing any manipulation that is required along the way. As I currently work in this field, I feel I am highly qualified to tutor in the computer science area.


I have a Bachelor's Degree in English, took two years of Honors AP English in High School, and possess a teaching certificate in English (High School level).

General Computer

I have been a computer programmer for 10 years and have experience tutoring basic computer skills for approximately 15 years.

I am proficient in Microsoft suite (Word, excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.), Oracle, virus identification and removal, Windows and Linux operating system's, networking, Access, FTP, batch files, VBScript, windows explore, download/upload programs, altered display settings, and other elements concerning General Computer utilization.

Microsoft Windows

As a computer programmer by trade, I utilize Microsoft Windows Kama both the home Edition as well as the server Edition, in my current career on a daily basis. Therefore, I am comfortable navigating the operating system and can easily explain how to do different things in the operating system, such as edit settings in the control panel, navigate the file system, perform the installation, and adjust visual settings to customize the OS to meet your needs. I am also comfortable working with my clients on more advanced settings, such as setting up the defragmentation on their computer and setting up automated Windows updates.

SAT Reading

In 2003, I graduated from high school as salutatorian of my senior class and having earned approximately 30 credit hours in my Advanced Placement coursework that got applied to my college transcripts. In 2007, I graduated summa cum laude from Montclair State University with a Bachelor's degree in English as well as a teaching certificate applicable to high school level English. I have assisted numerous students in their preparations for this exam, including my six younger siblings.


I have SQL Server Certification in versions 2000/2005/2008/2008R2/2012 and 11 years experience as SQL Server Database Administrator.
