Kristine has a gentle touch and puts my daughter at ease with her math struggles. We have tried several other tutors before settling on Kristine. As parents, we have a lot of anxiety about our daughter's school performance as well. Not only has Kristine helped bring up my daughter's grades and confidence, she has helped guide us on how to best use free resources at school to help our daughter. She has been instrumental in turning a negative experience with our daughter's school into a positive one. I do view her as an Academic Coach with a variety of skill sets. We have recommended her to others and have received similar excellent reviews.
