About Kristen

A good teacher will inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning. As a teacher I understand when I need to engage the mind, support the struggles, and encourage risk. With a BA in Speech Language Pathology I know that hard work and dedication to learning will pay off. As an English teacher who lived and worked in South Korea I know what needs to be achieved in order to reach goals. I have had the pleasure of having 700 students with 40 children per class and I know what it takes to keep the mind engaged and active. I am also an ABA therapist that specializes in teaching children with special needs. My goals for each session are to keep the student challenged but not overwhelmed. It is the upmost importance to make sure my students understand the concepts and retain the information. The biggest reward in life is watching my students grow and reach their goals.

I specialize in English, grammar, reading, vocabulary, and individuals who have special needs. I am certified in TESOL, TEFL, and TESL while having experience teaching overseas and in the states. I also have CPI training for individuals who have cognitive disabilities.

I am available 5pm-11pm on weekdays and available on the weekends. I can travel to a students home, meet in a public place, or tutor online.

I am ecstatic to hear from you and look forward to help you achieve your studies!

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.

Handwriting

I was an English teacher in South Korea and one of my goals was handwriting. I taught this subject throughout the year using methods and guided worksheets to help them understand how to write correctly. I am currently a teacher/aba therapist in the states specializing in kids with special needs and one of my goals is handwriting. I help the students achieve this everyday.

Special Needs

I have a bachelors in speech language pathology which requires me to understand and learn about those with cognitive disabilities such as autism Aspergers and ADHD. I was a teacher for a year and I am now an ABA therapist specializing in kids with special needs. Most all of my students have Down syndrome, Aspergers (which is on the autism spectrum), ADHD, and autism. I work with these students daily in order to help them learn in a safe and engaging environment. Since I am a behavior analyst I am also certified in CPI.
