Hello, my name is Kristina and I have been involved in tutoring for the past 9 years. I received my undergraduate degree from Illinois Wesleyan University. There I studied both Biology and Spanish including participating in a study abroad program in Quito, Ecuador which allowed me to travel to the Amazon rainforest as well as the Galapagos Islands. I really enjoy traveling and also backpacked in Europe for 5 months after I graduated experiencing the rich history and meeting amazing and diverse people. I then moved out to the west coast to pursue my love of Marine Biology and earned a Master's degree in Marine Science from the University of Oregon. While in graduate school as well as studying oysters, the focus of my thesis research, I was also teaching hands-on Marine Science in a local elementary school.
I then moved south to San Francisco where I had been working for three years working in informal science education. I love working with students and passing on my love and knowledge of Science and Spanish. I have been tutoring or teaching in both subjects since college and I am excited to continue to do so after moving back to Illinois! I especially enjoy tutoring because it allows a closer connection with the student than in a large classroom setting. I enjoy sharing my experience and enthusiasm with student while also helping them progress toward their academic goals. Outside of my love of Biology and Spanish I also love playing tennis, rock climbing, watching movies and TV and I have a new found enthusiasm for biking.
