About Kristin

I graduated with a BA in English from Florida International University in Miami, FL, and I am half-way through a master's degree in Social Work. I love to write! In fact, I consider writing to be a passion of mine. I have always excelled in the writing portions of state and national exams, and thoroughly enjoy when professors insist on giving projects that include a lengthy research paper.

I recently moved to the tri cities area from south Florida with my husband and our dog, Molly. I am currently working for Johnson City Schools as an RTI tutor for reading and math at an elementary school in the city.

I love working with people of all ages and sharing my passions with them. I have taught children to swim since I was 15 years old and was a swim coach for several years. I enjoy hiking and outdoor activities, which is why I am so excited to have moved to such a beautiful part of the country.

I received high scores on the writing portion of my SAT. I am skilled in both persuasive and expository essay writing. I can help students learn to develop proper writing skills based with the use of detailed brainstorming.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a math and reading RTI teacher at a local elementary school. Essentially, I am an interventionist who provides extra help to the students who are the lowest in the school at reading and math. The school is K-4th grade.

Swimming

I swam competitively from 10-18 years old. I have coached swimming for the past 10 years. I was in the top 20 in the country from age 10-13 years old. I competed in the State Championship individually all 4 years of high school. I have taught kids to swim since I was 15 years old.

Water Polo

When I thought I had started to "burn out" when it came to competitive swimming, I began playing water polo as an alternative. I excelled in water polo and highly enjoyed the competitive nature of the team sport. I was high school captain of my water polo team for 3 years in a row and went to several state championships. I also received several honors in Broward County, FL for water polo.
