About Kristina

I have 20+ years of experience as a Substitute Teacher, Tutor, Trainer, Director, and Coach. I have been a Substitute Teacher in the Metro Nashville School System for the last 10 years, teaching students various subjects in grades K-12.

I have 17 years of experience as a Certified Religious Education Teacher, developing the courses, teaching the courses, and managing all teacher responsibilities for grades 4-9.

I taught all of my children to read before first grade and one of them by the time she was 4. They consistently tested 3-4 grades above reading level. All 3 of my children have some form of attention deficit disorder so I have experience raising and training children with ADD and ADHD. I was also a Foster Parent and received specialized training from the Division of Youth and Family Services for 4 years.

I have taught students from many different countries, backgrounds, cultures, and learning styles. My teaching/tutoring style includes using nurturing, active listening, problem solving, and customizing my approach to the student's learning style and needs.

For the last 10 years, as a Substitute Teacher, I have completed Annual Teacher Training and Re-certification, and passed the annual Background Checks.

In High School, I was the Homecoming Queen, a member of Student Government, an actress in the Thespian Society, and a Peer Tutor.

In college, I completed courses in Business Writing, Technical Writing, Child Psychology, Group Communications, Team Building, Drama, Abnormal Psychology, Introduction to Law, Criminal Law, Family Law, among others.
I am a member of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society for Psychology majors.

In my professional Sales Management career, I have obtained numerous Sales Management Awards for Relationship Management, Top Sales, Leadership, Training Staff Members,and Customer Service.

As Film Director , Producer, Screenwriter, Actress, and Executive Producer (a life long passion) I have managed many activities for filmmaking including evaluating, selecting, and training cast members and film crew members and have started a small production company that I hope to grow within the next few years. I have had entries into the 48 Hour Film Festival that have won awards and entries into the Nashville Film Festival. I have written and produced several short films that I hope to parlay into larger projects in the near future and I have a film currently in post-production.

I have completed the 2 year courses on Film Production I and Film Production II at the prestigious Watkins College of Design, Art, and Film in Nashville Tennessee.

I have completed various classes and training on Child and Adult Learning Styles, and Creative Training Techniques. I have training and experience in teaching/tutoring to all learning styles for auditory, kinesthetic, and visual learners, and I customize to the student's learning style.

I am an Academic coach, Drama coach, Life coach, and Career coach/counselor. I am also a red belt in Tang Soo Do karate working towards my black belt.

I look forward to providing you with sensitive, professional, and expert tutoring. Please contact me for your tutoring needs.
