About Kristin

I am currently a graduate student at Iona College studying speech and language pathology. I did my undergrad at Marist College and studied both special education and elementary education, 1-6. After graduating and becoming a certified teacher I taught special education K-2 in the Bronx for two years. Deciding to go back to graduate school was a big decision but an exciting one! I am now available to tutor as it fits into my schedule of classes. I love working with kids and have tutored outside of the classroom also. I like to think of myself as a creative and fun tutor/teacher. I use games, projects, and fun songs to help my students engage in learning. The more students are engaged, the better they are able to use the information they have learned.

I have experience teaching using the Wilson Reading Program which is a tiered reading program that uses tactile materials to cater to all learners.

Teaching special education students requires patience and creativity. No two children are the same. After teacher special education students for two years I have learned to learn about the child first and then plan for tutoring or teaching so I can gear my lessons towards the interests of the child.

If you are looking for a fun, interested, and experienced teacher with a teaching certification please contact me to learn more about my availability.

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.

Common Core

Due to the fact that I am a common core trained certified teacher I have a great deal of experience teaching children how to understand common core vocabulary as well as thing using multiple modalities in order to understand common core curriculum better.

Phonics

I am a certified elementary education teacher and am currently getting my masters in Speech and Language Pathology. I did my undergrad at Marist College and studied both special education and elementary education, 1-6. Phonemic awareness and phonological awareness are two important skills to help young children become readers and help them learn to decode words. I taught K-2 special education children for two years and have a great amount of experience in the area of phonics.

Special Needs

I am a dual certified in both special education as well as elementary education. I did my undergrad at Marist College and studied both special education and elementary education, 1-6. I am currently attending school to gain my masters degree in Speech and Language Pathology.

Study Skills

As a certified teacher in elementary education and special education I have taught many children different study techniques that include various methods that are multi-tactile.
