Teaching since:
March 2011

I am a 31 year old aviculturist. I have a B.S. in Marine Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am currently applying for a Master's program in Biochemistry. I have taught at an after school science program for underprivileged children as well as done tutoring throughout my undergraduate program. I have been teaching swim lessons for ages 6 months- adults for over a year, including with the Autism Speaks program. I have been a Dive Control Specialist with a Scuba shop in San Diego for several years and enjoy it very much. I love to teach and watch people learn.

Feb 2012 - Jun 2012

I was a teacher at an after school hands on science program. I set a lesson plan and had hands on labs for students. They had two dissections, worked with marine plants and live animals, learned about the tides and what causes them and also learned about different factors that affect buoyancy.

Crissy was fantastic with our son and got him back on track with his Algebra studies. She was professional, yet engaging and connected very will with our student. She was prepared, knowledgeable and up to speed on the topics that were being covered in the class. Highly recommended.

Crissy was a great help to my daughter. Crissy jumped right in and was very personable with her. She felt very comfortable working with her. I will definitely keep Crissy's information for tutoring sessions going forward.

Lauren said that Crissy moved the subject matter along a little too fast for her so she became a little intimidated. I know there is a short amount of tutoring time and that may have been the problem. My only request is to really make sure Lauren is grasping the material

Crissy is just amazing! She exactly knows what the student needs, she prepares the lesson plan and follows up with the student! Extremely good. We are so glad to have found her. She is very flexible and very patient.
