About Kristina

I have been involved in tutoring and teaching since graduating college with my English degree. I was an English conversation teacher at a Chinese university, and then moved to South Korea, where I continue to teach English to adults, as well as tutoring privately. I enjoy explaining concepts and helping my students improve their English speaking and writing makes me and them happy!

Back in the United States, I also worked at a CUNY college in their writing center, reviewing student papers and again coaching them on how to improve their writing and create a stronger paper. A master's degree in educational communication was a good grounding in educational theory and in how to frame instruction so that students can learn more effectively.

I look forward to meeting and working with you in the near future!
