Qualifications & Experience

Hello parents and students,
As a former high school French teacher and elementary ESL teacher, I have several years experience in the K-12 setting. I am especially passionate about learning and teaching languages. A native English speaker, with near-native fluency in French, and an intermediate level of Spanish, I fully understand that language learning does not come easy to all. Having studied and learned a second language myself, I understand what it takes to gain these skills, wether you need help with speaking, and/or pronunciation, reading, or writing in English, French, or beginning Spanish. If it is test prep, or other Language Arts subjects that challenge you, I am equipped to provide you with many strategies to improve your study skills, and hopefully your grades! I am adept at developing relationships with students and meeting them where they are, so as to understand student learning styles and specific needs. I hope to help you become a more successful and empowered student!

Kristy did a great job at tutoring my high school son. Her assistance was key in helping him pull up his test grades in French, so as to keep his grade point average where it needed to be for his West Point application. She kept him engaged. Her services helped with his retention of test materials, due to her creative approach, and most certainly her patience. Very professional and always prompt!

I did not want to get a tutor, but my mom made me. I thought it would be really boring. It wasn't. Ms. Winkler had all these different ways of helping me remember. I had to write and recite a poem in French. I thought it would be impossible. We made it into a rap, and put a beat to it. It was pretty cool. We had fun. She was good at making me laugh. I got a 95 on that assignment that I didn't even want to do at first! If you need a French tutor, you should call her.
