About Kristin


Bio

Born in Pensy, raised in Hopewell, NJ, I have taught chemistry for ten years. I tutor all levels of chemistry including AP, Honors, Modeling (Montgomery), College Prep, SAT Subject test, and ACT Science.

Until it makes sense, it's very frustrating! Take a deep breath. It doesn't have to be so hard. I can help you navigate the difficult territory of thermodynamics. I can make intermolecular forces make sense. I can simplify stoichiometry so you can determine the limiting reactant. I know...

Until it makes sense, it's very frustrating! Take a deep breath. It doesn't have to be so hard. I can help you navigate the difficult territory of thermodynamics. 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 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!

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.

Easy to Follow and Understand & Available on Short Notice

My daughter was very happy with this tutor. We gave the turtor her very short notice and she was willing to travel to meet my daughter on campus. We had limited resources to work with as the professor was not posting study guide, but she still was very helpful and able to go over old tests.

Kathleen, 5 lessons with Kristin

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Reviewed solution calculations, how to solve problems with molarity, molality, percent by mass and mole fraction; acid-base neutralization problems using the dilution equation.

Dorothy, 1 lesson with Kristin

Crash Chem with Kristin!

Kristin has very strong knowledge of chemistry and knows how to make it less intimidating. A great person with great skills!

Joyce, 7 lessons with Kristin

We are happy with Kristen!

My son finds his sessions with Kristen to be very productive. His grade has improved since he started tutoring with Kristen. She is patient, and knows how to explain the subject matter very well.

Excellent Tutor

We have been amiss in providing a review for our daughter's tutor, Kristin R., hired last school year. Our daughter was failing chemistry and had promised numerous times that she “had it under control.” Although her tutoring sessions with Kirstin started in her last quarter of the school year, she ended up passing chemistry with a C final grade. Kristin R. was a Godsend; an excellent match for our daughter with a wonderful ability to patiently teach her in ways that she easily understood. Kristin was extremely flexible (days/timeframes/locations) with all scheduled sessions. Our only regret was not hiring Kristin earlier. We would highly recommend Kristin and would definitely employ her again (if available), should we need tutoring services in the future. Thank you! ~Kelly and Thomas

Great fit!

My son selected Kristin from an extensive list of those available in our area. Very prompt with responses and easy to work with for scheduling. Kristen thoroughly enjoys teaching her subject matter and shares her enthusiasm. My son always seems rejuvenated and more confident after each session. He says that the way Kristin explains things and the examples she provides makes everything so much clearer. Thank you Kristin!

Excellent tutor.

Excellent tutor. Should I have need of additional instruction Kristin R. would be the person I would request. She listened to my description of what I needed and homed in on it.

George, 2 lessons with Kristin

Worth it

My daughter was really tensed about the the test tomorrow, when she came home from school. After the tutoring I could see that she was smiling and she said she was more confident about the test now.
