Homeschooling my three daughters for the last eighteen years, my life revolves around loving them and teaching them. Reading, writing, literature analysis and all things English, delight our family and provide joy and discussion around our dinner table most evenings. Three different students with different learning styles challenged my abilities as a teacher at times, but my resulting interactive learning methods, writing models and diagnostic tools accommodate the most neophyte writer and most fledgling reader. My older daughters scored near perfect (1600) on their reading and writing scores for SAT! Your student will achieve mastery of reading/writing in my tutoring environment, as well.
Delivering the “missing link” concept of grammar, or spelling, or writing, or literature, to a frustrated student differentiates my instruction methods from any other tutoring method. When your pupil recognizes and places these “missing links” into his existing academic framework of English, an attitude of confidence emerges and the desire to write and read increases. Augmented reading desire signals increased academic appetite and improved grades!
When majoring in Communications at Baylor University, my passion for Speech and Journalism spawned compassion for the communicators in a our newly-created technological age. So when I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1986, I immediately entered the world of teaching adults how to communicate in a digital world. My writing expertise came in handy as I taught word-processing skills of different software programs to classrooms of professionals who now needed to create their annual reports, performance brochures, and training manuals via desktop publishing. From the classroom, a tutoring business rapidly emerged and carried my career until Mommy time, when I took off the career hat and put on the mothering one when I birthed my first child with husband, Robert.
Eighteen years and two additional daughters later, my passion for teaching ignited by a love for my children, I tutor twenty plus students of varying ages on a weekly basis in all facets of communicating the English language from reading and writing to speaking. Marriage to my husband Robert for twenty-six years and mothering my three daughters, nourishes my love of family and heightens my aspirations to propel children to success in our culture. Allow my zeal for articulating a message, sensitivity to missing links, and tenderness towards family, attain academic success for your learner today.
Cristal Works Miracles
Our 17 year old was struggling in English. Since she has been working with Cristal her grades have improved and most importantly she loves going to her tutor sessions. This is only after 1 month. Cristal is such a joy to work with. Her approach is perfect with students who lack confidence, and need positive instruction. We can't say enough great things about her.Pamela, 8 lessons with CristalTutor responded:

Cristal visited with me and my daughter and worked with us on a homeschool plan that will bring out the strengths in my daughter, who has some struggles. I was so impressed with her knowledge and ability to pinpoint the best options for different learning styles.Sandy, 1 lesson with Cristal

Cristal is an amazing tutor and was very helpful with assisting my daughter with her college essay's and prepping for the SAT. We are extremely pleased with the outcome we have received from my daughters college applications and the improvement in her SAT scores. I highly recommend Cristal to you and believe it was the best decision to utilize her services for my Senior in High School. I was impressed with her professionalism and she listens to your requests and concerns and is very focused on accomplishing the tasks at hand. We spoke often regarding my daughters goals and made adjustments to her tutoring program as we moved through the process of College applications and essays. Best decision ever! I would do it all over again, it is money well spent!Lisa, 10 lessons with CristalTutor responded:

Cristal has been tutoring my son for over one year now. My son has moderate to severe dyslexia and has seen multiple tutors over the years. Our son has made great improvements in his spelling, grammar, and writing skills since seeing Cristal. She definitely has a gift for tutoring students and especially dyslexic students. I would highly recommend her for other struggling students.Tami, 92 lessons with Cristal
