Kristen ...through the material with you, at your own pace. I love working with kids, and I also have experience working with students ages 6-24. I know that there's serious pressure on students to excel and learn at home, and that can be overwhelming for parents. I am confident that I can help students improve academically by working patiently and diligently with them one-on-one. My strongest subjects are high school level mathematics, biology, English, and neuroscience.
