About Kristy


Bio

I have a passion for learning and education. Gaining a better understanding of a subject is my personal goal as a life-long learner as well as my goal for students who I tutor. I believe in personalized instruction and appreciate that one-on-one tutoring gives me an opportunity to be creative and inventive in each session. Using a variety of techniques I work to help students learn in the best way they can.

I have a passion for learning and education. Gaining a better understanding of a subject is my personal goal as a life-long learner as well as my goal for students who I tutor. I believe in personalized instruction and appreciate that one-on-one tutoring gives me an opportunity to be creative and inventive in each session. Using a variety of techniques I work to help students learn in the best way they can.

I have a master's in chemistry and a bachelor's in chemistry education which I have used to teach introductory undergraduate chemistry courses for 8 years and 7-12 grade math and science courses before that. I have also tutored for a variety of math and science courses including three years as a master tutor at a community college. During all that time I always tried to make myself available to my students outside of class for extra help. Understanding of concepts takes a different amount of time for each person so I wanted to make sure that I could offer that extra time if needed.

My primary background is in chemistry but I have taught a wide range of science subjects. I love all sciences and try to stay current and continue to learn more about each field.

I want my students to succeed in their education so I try to be flexible with scheduling. I also know that prompt responses are important and respond to requests in a timely fashion. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about myself, my tutoring or to schedule a session.

Very Knowledgeable and Patient

Kristy is a very knowledgeable and patient tutor and flexible. She tutored me AP Chemistry when I was stumbled on some Thermo Chem concept and some complicated free response questions. With her help, I feel much better understanding of this unit. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with AP Chem. Thanks Kristy for your help!

Judy, 7 lessons with Kristy

Very helpful and knowledgeable

My daughter and I have been very happy with the excellent help Kristy has given her. We have had multiple lessons with her and expect to have many more. The process has been easy to set up and use.

Biology

Kristy was very knowledgeable and helped to explain subject in preparation for an exam. I will use her again, I needed both Chemistry and Biology so her expertise in both was appreciated.

Tracye, 1 lesson with Kristy

Great first time experience using Wyzant tutoring!

Kristy was very helpful for helping me review for a test tomorrow. It helped a lot to review with her and have her explain topics I was shaky on. Thanks for the help.

Jinok, 1 lesson with Kristy

One of the best chemistry tutors.

Kristy walked through EVERY concept with me. I had zero understanding of anything that was going on and she was able to turn light bulbs on. Seriously, she’s knows her stuff and I don’t want any other tutor. She’s hands down one the the best tutors I’ve ever had.
