About Cristen

About Cristen
I recently completed graduate school and have always enjoyed reading and writing. I tailor my lesson plans to each student's unique needs and am extremely patient. My favorite part about tutoring is helping my students set goals and watching them grow and succeed. I received a BA in Public Health and International Relations from Brandeis University and a Master of Social Work from New York University.

Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have more than 10 years of experience volunteering and working in elementary schools and at the local library as a teaching assistant and tutor. I've worked primarily with children ages 5-11, including those who are English Language Learners and/or have special needs. I can also assist with writing college essays and personal statements for graduate school.
