About Kristin

I have taught chemistry for eight years, and I know that many students find it challenging. The math is weird, there are lots of details, and it seems to many that their teacher doesn't actually "teach" them anything. How frustrating!

Take a deep breath. It doesn't have to be so hard. I can help you navigate the difficult territory of quantum numbers. I can make intermolecular forces make sense. I can simplify stoichiometry so you can determine the limiting reactant. I know chem-is-trying, but I can help you succeed.

I tutor all levels of chemistry including Introductory College Chemistry, AP, Honors, SAT Subject test, and ACT Science. I graduated magna cum laude from Raritan Valley Community College and from The College of New Jersey with degrees in General Science and Chemistry. I am a native English speaker and am very technologically savvy. I look forward to working with you!

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 Science

I find that the best way to prepare for the Science portion of the ACT is to work together on practice problems. It is important to discuss why the correct answer is a better choice than the wrong answers. The ACT mostly tests your problem solving ability, and that is developed through practice.
