About Kristen

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was a little girl. I love helping children learn and become lifelong learners. I set high expectations for all my students because I know they are able to reach my expectations.

I am new to tutoring but I am an experienced educator. After graduating from Millersville University in 2012, I substitute taught in Lancaster and York counties. I taught kindergarten in Maryland for a year and all my students were able to reach my high goals and moved onto 1st grade with all the skills need to be successful.

I have my students practicing sight words with hands-on practice that is fun for young learners. I am able to help you develop strong reading skills

I look forward to working with you to become successful in school.

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

In my Elementary Reading course, we were taught the D'Nealian and Zaner-Bloser handwriting font. We were graded on our ability to write in each font. I taught handwriting during my student teaching in 2nd grade where I used Handwriting without tears program. I taught Zaner-Bloser to my kindergarten students and they had great penmanship by the end of the school year.

Phonics

When I taught kindergarten, I was teaching the alphabet, letter sounds and blending letter sounds. Phonics is understanding the letter sounds and blending letter sounds together to form words.
