About Kristi

Hello! My name is Ms. DeFranco and I was born into a family of educators who instilled a love of learning at an early age. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Rhode Island, with a minor in Fine Arts. After many years of working with children, I decided to follow in my parents’ footsteps and returned to school to earn a degree in Education. I taught Kindergarten for 3 years in New Jersey public schools before deciding to obtain my certificates in Special Needs and Fine Arts. I am currently an Art Teacher in North Jersey, and teach Kindergarten through 5th grade. I am also in the music industry teaching drum lessons as well. My love of the Arts and Education together make learning interesting, and most importantly fun for all of my students! Hello!

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.

Drawing

I am currently an art teacher. I went to college for fashion design, before CAD, hence all design was down through drawing. My minor was fine arts, where my classes were all drawing, shading/sketching, along with painting, sculpture, and the necessary art courses to graduate with my art teaching certificate.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified kindergarten through 5th grade teacher. I have taught kindergarten for three years and am qualified to teach all grades K-5 along with a certification in art, and special education. I am currently an art teacher.

Macintosh

As an art teacher, I own a Mac computer myself, and troubleshoot all issues on my own. I am both Mac and PC literate, but pride myself in Mac education. I also own all Apple products including but not limited to iPhone, iPods, IMac, and iPads. In my past, I used to work for a production company where I had the opportunity to use Macs for editing, building websites, and other Mac-intense programs.
