About Kristine


Bio

After thirty years as a teacher at a Quaker independent school in suburban Philadelphia, I am now tutoring students in writing and research. I believe everyone can learn to write by understanding the process of writing and practicing the necessary skills. Good writing sometimes seems like a mystery to students because they often haven't been shown the steps to move from idea to finished essay. I know I can help students feel more confident as writers.

After thirty years as a teacher at a Quaker independent school in suburban Philadelphia, I am now tutoring students in writing and research. I believe everyone can learn to write by understanding the process of writing and practicing the necessary skills. Good writing sometimes seems like a mystery to students because they often haven't been shown the steps to move from idea to finished essay. I know I can help students feel more confident as writers.

My experience working with students from middle school through college has included assisting college students with research papers; helping high school seniors develop powerful personal essays for college admissions; teaching students literary analysis, grammar, reading, and study and organizational skills; working with students from China who attend U.S. schools; and teaching a "head start" seminar in Beijing for Chinese students coming to school in America. I know strategies to improve students’ work and help them develop more confidence in themselves as writers and researchers.

I hold a B.A. in English with additional work in Religion and History from La Salle University. I have an M.A. in English from SUNY Buffalo.

I have five years experience working in the classroom with Chinese students at our school. My school admits about ten international students each year, so for the past few years I have had up to six students under my professional care in my tenth grade classes. I also taught a "head start" seminar in Beijing in the summer of 2014 to Chinese students who were coming to American high schools. I helped them prepare for the different expectations and different methods of the American college-prep experience.

It's not difficult to unravel the mysteries of English grammar, punctuation, and usage. I can be your guide through the thicket. I have years of experience teaching the intricacies of standard conventions and know many easily remembered jingles and rhymes to aid students' memory.

I have a passion for sharing my love for books and writing with students. I believe that all students can improve academic skills and discover the joy of writing. As a writer myself, there is nothing more gratifying for me than to see students produce work they are proud of and begin to see themselves in different ways. zI hold a B.A. in English with additional work in Religion and History from La Salle University. I have an M.A. in English from SUNY Buffalo. Throughout my career, I have attended professional workshops to deepen my knowledge of pedagogical methods and to learn more about newly-discovered connections between the brain and learning.

Writing

Nothing is more critical to academic success in high school and college than the firm command of writing skills. School work is language based, and the more competence a student has, the more success that student will enjoy. I teach writing as a process. A student learns not to respond to one assignment, but to think like a writer and to develop fluency at the sentence, paragraph and essay levels.

Experienced and patient

Kristine has been an exceptional resource for the host daughter. My host daughter is from China and a freshman at a private school in PA. Kristine is helping her with writing. Sentence structure, verb tenses, capital letters, punctuation and citing sources are all tricky concepts for most Chinese students. Kristine is using her years of experience with other students to help my daughter navigate her new school and country.
