Kristen is very excited to be a part of the Beach Cities Tutoring team. She has over 10 years of experience working with children as a teacher, after school counselor, and tutor. She specializes in tutoring English (including essay writing), French, and History/Social Studies, but loves working with elementary and middle school students in all subjects. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in English and Creative Writing, with a Minor in French, from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2013 and her Master of Arts in International Affairs from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University in 2019. She is also a certified substitute teacher for LAUSD. After receiving her BA, Kristen taught English abroad in France with the French Ministry of Education’s TAPIF program, helping students to improve their reading, writing, and speaking ability. As a graduate student, she was part of the Tufts Literacy Corps and tutored students ages 5-15 in all subjects, as well as taught an all-ages poetry workshop to students at a local community center. Kristen is always looking for new ways to engage students’ creative minds. It is her mission to ensure that her students feel empowered to lead in their own learning and find what sparks their curiosity.

Private tutors not only help students academically, they also serve as a consistent mentor who can support students to stay focused and on task. Does your child have trouble sitting down, being attentive, and getting work done? There is only so much zoom a child/teen can handle. It is not a replacement for human interaction. Tutoring can also help provide some structure to a student’s school day. Private tutors can teach important study skills such as keeping a homework planner or online calendar. They can help with binder or google drive organization and turning in assignments. They can also help with goal setting and time management. These are important skills not only for school but for life.
Additionally, tutors can also help to motivate and energize students. If they build the right connection they can make learning fun and even make the child look forward to their tutoring sessions. Finally, tutors can reach out to children’s teachers and work as a team. Many parents are trying to work full time jobs while also being the homeschool teacher, nurse, and counselor. Private tutoring can ease the burden and allow for the family to have more fun learning time together that can include taking virtual field trips, reading, or going on a nature walk.
Many parents often think of tutoring only for students who are struggling. Private tutoring can help students who need extra support in remediation and academic core content, but it can also help students who need more challenging work. Do you find your child is done with all their homework by 1pm and playing video games the rest of the day? Depending on the school and your child’s pace of learning, many students can benefit from supplemental instruction that goes beyond the grade level curriculum. This enrichment could be in the form of creative passion projects, science labs, computer science coding classes, higher level math problem solving, essay or screenwriting classes, or even financial literacy content. For students who are struggling, tutors can revisit and reteach content, provide additional practice review problems, help students study for tests, and guide them through school packets.
For parents that do have reservations about in person tutoring, online tutoring through zoom offers a great alternative where the student and tutor can see each other through a screen while simultaneously using screen sharing and annotating tools to make the sessions very interactive. Some students even enjoy this more and it is definitely the safest method for now.

Although technology can assist with homeschooling and provide supplemental instruction, it cannot replace one on one in person mentoring/tutoring. Hybrid homeschooling where students attend school a couple of days a week and are homeschooled the remaining days can be a burden on parents who work. Students are often asked to do more project based learning which can be time consuming and difficult for students who have ADHD or poor time management skills. Tutors can help break down projects and help students create a detailed plan. Common Core math concepts can also present many challenges for students. Tutors can coach students by helping to teach problem solving strategies and build their self esteem. Students who also need additional help with the writing process can receive support with brainstorming, prewriting, organization and editing. Many students struggle with even getting started on writing assignments and homeschooling can present challenges for students who need consistent guidance and checking in. Overall, hybrid homeschooling can help students to become more independent but for students who need a little more structure, tutoring for an hour or two a day can set students up for success for the rest of their homeschool day.
