About Kristen


Bio

I have been a curious student my whole life and I like to pass on not just knowledge, but my love of learning. I graduated High School with a GPA above 4.0 and immediately joined the US Navy in their Nuclear Propulsion program. I spent 4 years in the Navy learning about nuclear reactors and then decided to start a family when I got out. Since then I have finished my BS in Physics with a minor in Math graduating Cum Laude. I also was inducted into the physics honor society, Sigma Pi Sigma,...

I have been a curious student my whole life and I like to pass on not just knowledge, but my love of learning. I graduated High School with a GPA above 4.0 and immediately joined the US Navy in their Nuclear Propulsion program. I spent 4 years in the Navy learning about nuclear reactors and then decided to start a family when I got out. Since then I have finished my BS in Physics with a minor in Math graduating Cum Laude. I also was inducted into the physics honor society, Sigma Pi Sigma, having attained a GPA in Physics of over 3.0. I have also gotten my MS in Education and am certified in the state of Pennsylvania to teach physics and chemistry.

I also enjoy reading and writing and love helping others to appreciate grammar, spelling, and writing with a purpose. It really makes me happy to find a way to help a student learn the material they are struggling with. Learning should not be confined to school, it should be a part of our everyday lives.

Having experienced so many different environments in my life, I have learned not only a large amount of information, but I have also learned how to translate that information so that others can understand it as well. Because we all learn differently, it is important to find a tutor that can modify her teaching style to fit what the student needs to learn. I believe with my experience and knowledge that I can help nearly any student gain proficiency in the subject they are currently struggling in and hope to help them gain confidence along the way.

Study Skills

I regularly help students organize their materials, find references in their books that will allow them to study on their own, and apply the knowledge they already have to learning new material. By learning how to organize, plan, and break large projects into manageable pieces, many of my students improve their grades and relieve a great deal of stress from their school lives. The parents of these students tell me they've seen a great improvement since I began working with their children.

Wonderful tutor!

Taught my son Chem and calculus. She was able to to explain topics in a way you can really connect and apply the knowledge. She helped my son get caught up on his schoolwork and get him back on track.

Greta, 3 lessons with Kristen

Knowledgable

Kristen gives great tips for the SAT's and helps further understanding of a problem I am confused on. Sometimes I am confused at her explanations of certain problems but when i express my confusion she makes sure I ultimately understand.

Morgan, 4 lessons with Kristen

Great tutor

Thanks again for working with Syd, I think we are off to a great start. Syd looks forward to her next lesson.

Positive, flexible and clear

Kristen has helped me maintain a B average in what has been my toughest course in my grad school program. I would not be succeeding in class without her guidance. She helps to break down complex subject matter and relate it to real world applications. With her continued help, there is a chance I will get an A!

Maria, 8 lessons with Kristen

Very Patient

Kristen is very smart and confident in what she does. My son is very comfortable working with her. After each lesson Kristen gave me update on how my son is doing and also gave recommendation on what to work on for the next lesson.
