Honors in Science and Technology
Hi there! My name is Kristin. My love of teaching stems from a lifelong passion for learning. As a budding scientist with a bachelor's of science in biochemistry, I know firsthand that hard work and dedication pay off. If you're struggling in the sciences, I can help you to become an Einstein in no time!
As a teaching assistant in college-level general and organic chemistry courses for all four years of my undergraduate education, I developed personalized teaching strategies that make lesson design as easy as 3.14! (That's pi...!) My main areas of expertise lie in science and mathematics (particularly chemistry, genetics, and biology.)
Test prep/study skills are also my specialty, so if you are stressed about your standardized tests, don't be--I can help! My own standardized test scores were incredibly high, so you can benefit greatly from my ACT, SAT, AP and GRE studying and test-taking strategies! I have coached several students and assisted them in raising their scores--many of my students have seen increases in their ACT composite scores of 5 points or more! That's huge, and with the right mindset, anyone can do it!
I create personalized and challenging (but NOT overwhelming) exercises and lessons. I also provide active, ongoing feedback and am always available for questions, even between sessions!
I can tutor both online and in-person, so please feel free to reach out and let's get started!

Learning anything can be tremendously fun if one is equipped with the tools to approach the material in a positive way. Therefore, the foundation of my teaching philosophy is that anyone can understand core concepts in ANY subject with the correct cultivation of their personal learning style and some quality effort.
HobbiesHobbies include indie science, research, wildlife rescue, reading, outdoor activities and hanging out with my dog. I love teaching students about the real-world applications of all of the cool science around them!
I also run Science Hack Day Houston, I've co-founded a biotechnology company and I am trying to become a self-taught programmer!
