About Kristin

Hello, my name is Kristin. Over the last five years, I've enjoyed the opportunity to help high school students from North Carolina to Boston realize and fulfill their education goals.

Although I enjoy working with a variety of subjects, I specialize in college preparations. I have a proven track record of increasing students' SAT scores 200+ points.

As a 99th percentile scorer myself, I understand the work it takes to get a good score and enjoy teaching students the most efficient strategies to get there. I individually tailor lessons for each student according to their needs, maximizing their abilities and helping them obtain competitive scores top schools are seeking. I believe any student has the ability to master SAT concepts with the right focus, motivation, and dedication. As your child's tutor, I will be committed to helping them reach their goals. In order to fully maximize their scores, I recommend students start studying The SAT at the beginning of their junior year.

In addition to the SAT, I also provide tutoring for nine AP classes/tests, including AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Statistics, AP U.S. History, AP U.S. Government, and AP Comparitive Government.

I also offer college admissions counseling, personal statement coaching, and editing/proofreading services.

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.

Biology

I received a bachelor's degree in biochemistry from Davidson College, and a master's degree in nutritional biochemistry (with a focus in health communications) from Tufts University. Since 2009, I've enjoyed working with students to improve their understanding of science. My approach is to break down complex science into clear language that is both memorable and relevant for students.
