have been teaching for five years. I match my curriculum to the goals of my students. I help with homework and add additional problems for the areas that they are having difficulty understanding. I like to use real life and visual representations as often as possible to help the student gain a more thorough understanding of the subject matter. I believe that learning should be fun and strive to inspire my students to enjoy learning even if they think the subject is a challenge.

About Crissy A.

I am a 34 year old teacher. I have a B.S. in Marine Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. I am currently finishing my teaching credential in the next couple of weeks. I have taught at an after school science program for underprivileged children as well as done tutoring throughout my undergraduate program. I taught swim lessons for ages 6 months- adults for two years including with the Autism Speaks program. I was a Dive Control Specialist with a Scuba shop in San Diego for several years and enjoyed it very much. I love to teach and watch people learn.

Crissy is so helpful with biology. She takes her time on the first lesson to learn how you learn. I found her very helpful and she made learning biology easy and fun for me.

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.

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.
