Hi, I am Kristen and I am currently working to get a master's degree in special education with an emphasis on applied behavior analysis. ABA is helping someone break down large task into small accomplishable tasks. It has been proven to work with children of all ages with and without disabilities in and out of the classroom. These are the methods I would use working with anyone.
I have experience with typical developing children as well as children with disabilities. I worked in a small school while in college with an after school program helping children in grades k-5 with homework from all subjects. I have experience working with children with disabilities in the one on one setting teaching anything for daily living skills to typical school day independent work.
I love helping the young kids understand what they are learning and seeing the joy in their faces when they truly understand. I was the one who needed some extra help in elementary school so I know what these children are feeling, and I want to be the one that can make that fear and anxiety go away for them.
I have always done very well in English from high school and all through college. I have taught several children how to read and write while working in the after school program throughout my undergraduate career.
Any job that I have had since I was 16 years old has been working with children in elementary school, so I have 5+ years of experience working with children of this age group.
My undergraduate degree has an emphasis on ABA which lead me to work at an autism clinic through my undergraduate career, and I am currently working with children part time in the school system with disabilities. I also have a life long experience with autism because I have a younger brother who in on the spectrum.
I can make learning fun and exciting, in a way that you never though learning could happen. You might not even realize you are learning. I am very creative, and I can break down the hard task of homework and make it something easy ad fun!

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.
