Hello! My name is Kristin and I would love to tutor you or your child!
Here are some of my qualifications:
I've taught high school science for 5 years, both in an urban, lower income school and an exemplary rated, nationally recognized school. Thus, I've worked with all types of students.
I've taught IPC, biology, and chemistry.
I completed my teacher training with the prestigious Teach for America program and I currently work with them as an Instructional Coach to train new teachers in the classroom.
I have 3 years of tutoring experience, both with a company and as an independent contractor.
I graduated with honors from Texas A&M University with a degree in Biomedical Science and Psychology. I also have a masters degree from the University of Houston in Science Education.
My tutoring personality:
I would first like to say that I firmly believe that every student can learn any subject. To achieve that, I try to break the information down into smaller pieces to make it easier for students to comprehend. Also, I show students how to figure out what is the most important information so that they can more quickly master the material. I love watching a student make progress and see the "lightbulb" go off as they realize they actually get it! Because of my teaching experience, I know what kinds of questions that teachers are likely to ask on tests, and I use this information to my students' advantage. Hello!

We tried out several tutors and my son has been most comfortable with Kristin. She is very timely, professional, patient, organized and my son says he likes her approach to explaining Chemistry and Geometry. My son is now energized and looking forward to a very successful year. His confidence in Chemistry and Geometry has improved because of the positive attitude Kristin brings to the table. I personally look forward to working with her through out the school year and have plans to let her tutor my daughter next year in high school.
Kristin is an expert in biology and easy to relate to. Whenever I ask her a question she explains easily and simply. She is patient and kind and a great tutor.
My daughter for the most part has always been a "A" student but along the way got lost in math and received a 79 on her progress report however with Kristin's help in 3 weeks my daughter brought her grade up to an 85. Just in time for her report card! I know if my daughter had another week of tutoring with Kristin before her report card she would have made an "A". KRISTIN is....Awesome!
My daughter was struggling with Algebra until I contacted WyzAnt and found Kristin H. What a difference a month has made! Within the first few weeks my daughter was excited and looks forward to Kristin's tutoring. She no longer dread's her upcoming tests. WyzAnt allowed me to choose a tutor from a selection of certified tutors. Kristin is a total God send and has made all the difference in the world for my daughter. She is now passing Algebra!
Great customized approach to tutoring. Kristin took the time to evaluate learning style and areas of weakness and recommended a corresponding / customized development plan. There is very clear progress after only 3 lessons. She is always punctual and communicates objectives very clearly - Excellent work!
I was at a loss trying to get my son through high school and needed a miracle and I got one - I found Kristen. He needed help in all major subjects as well as structure and study skills. Kristen made sure he stayed on task, handed in his completed homework timely and was prepared for tests, including finals. She was very patient however was firm enough to hold him accountable. Kristen was very flexible on her time and she was there when he needed her. Very dependable, personable and effective! Most importantly - my son graduated on time!

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.
