About Kristin

Hello. I have had much experience teaching all grade levels and many subject areas including: reading, art, physical education as a substitute teacher in both private and public schools.
I taught kindergarten to my child. I have taught Summer school classes "Getting Kids Ready for Kindergarten." I have taught in several Preschools and was a classroom teacher for 4 year old children for many years. I also have worked as an Autistic children's therapist for several years. I enjoy working best one on one with my students. I have tutored children in reading including a child with cerebral palsy. My most recent job is the full-time substitute teacher for a private school where I have worked with 5-7th graders.
I work well with all children. I am funny and engage my students in learning. I enjoy the challenge coming up with creative ways and materials to teach each of my students. I have many of my own classroom materials for especially the elementary grades including lots in Kindergarten. My favorite subjects to teach are Art, Reading, Writing, Kindergarten level Spanish, and Spelling. I also have an almost completed degree in interior design from MATC. I love to paint on canvas and draw.

The experience teaching my children how to read. They are avid readers and read way above their grade level. I also taught my youngest child how to read during our home school Kindergarten. She is one of the most advanced readers in her classroom in 2nd grade. I have held several long term substitute teacher positions teaching reading to elementary level students. It's a joy to work one on one with them.

My background experience in the Elementary Education field is extensive. I have taught all grade levels. I had the wonderful opportunity to teach my daughter Kindergarten level studies. I have also substitute taught in long and short term positions in Kindergarten through 7th grade. I have worked with the Handwriting without tears, Keyboarding without Tears, and Math U See programs as part of my teaching curriculum. I have several materials on study skills that I have utilized with my eldest child who is now entering 6th grade.

I used Phonics with my daughter to teach her how to read and write in Kindergarten. I have many materials that I own and have made to help students be successful in learning Phonics. I love to research to learn how to teach these subject areas like, Phonics even better.

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 have earned a BSE degree in Elementary Education (PreK-6th grade) from U.W. Whitewater, Wisconsin.

I am currently teaching Art in my children's school. I teach 5th-8th graders. I also substitute teach on a regular basis in the same classroom when one is needed. I have taught all age of children from infant up to high school level.

I have worked with all subject matter. I had the honor of homeschooling my daughter in Kindergarten a couple of years ago. I actively volunteer in both my daughters' classrooms. That is, upper and lower elementary grades.

Handwriting

I feel qualified to teach Handwriting because I taught my children how to write using the Handwriting without Tears curriculum in Kindergarten through 5th grade. With my background in Elementary Education, I feel very qualified to teach students Handwriting including cursive. I have many materials to help each child learn and be successful in this subject area.
