About this tutor

I have extensive experience prepping students for standardized tests:  ACT, SAT, ISEE, HSPT, and CHSPE, as well as all-levels math and science.  I am a patient, encouraging, high-energy motivator who addresses individual needs and crafts tailored one-on-one plans.

The results speak for themselves!

Rates vary between $80-150 an hour, dependent upon subject, location, and number of hours.
Tutoring is available at your home, at my Burbank home office, or online.

I love influencing students to work hard, maximize their potential, and develop confidence.  It's a beautiful gift to see students transform their grades and watch their confidence blossom.

    As an adult entering the college arena I was way over my head in the math department. Krystina helped to break down the seemingly complex concepts and equations with a smile. Prior to her tutoring I was overwhelmed and often wanted to crawl back under the covers to pray for a miracle download of understanding. Krystina provided the acumen I needed in a fun environment. Her youthful appearance made me doubtful at first but with 100% certainty her methods work! She shows up with an unparalleled enthusiasm for learning. The passion for progress is infectious. To put it into perspective, I had a 68 on my first exam without her help. I scored a 97 out of 100 on the final after her tutoring sessions. I still sit here in awe. Previously, I would have never aspired to do anything but squeak by and pray for a passing grade. Krystina was catalyst for an almost perfect score on a business math course at Northridge CSUN. Sitting in a class with 120 students the material was briefly visited but it was her tutoring that enabled me to achieve the comprehension to be confident and excel.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I've been doing this a long time.  I'll gather any and all helpful information about the student.  I then discuss tutoring goals with both the parents and the student.  Sometimes they have different goals!  Then we'll come up with a tailored plan dependent on the students goals, challenges, and personality.  Every one is different!  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated from the University of Miami with a 3.9 GPA, completing the pre-med track, majoring in Biology and Theatre Arts, and minoring in Chemistry and Psychology. I've been tutoring for a decade. I love learning and have a passion for teaching and inspiring others. I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I grew up reading textbooks for fun and began competing in and winning math competitions at age 10. I am continually taking classes and reading books to expand upon my knowledge and skill sets. My hobbies include reading, songwriting, singing, violin, piano, and dance.

I was inspired to create Avery Prep to serve our community.  Children are the future.  My goal is to educate, inspire, and empower.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes. Lessons cost between $100-150, depending on subject, duration, location, and number of lessons.  

I like to work my family's needs.  You don't have to spend thousands to reach your target score.  I am able to set up systems that work within a family's budget, while still delivering the results needed.  I'm happy to offer a free consultation to discuss options. 


How did you get started teaching?

I have five siblings.  It started there, with playing teacher-- it was my favorite game!  Then in middle school I enrolled in a peer tutoring program and LOVED it.  I've never stopped.  

I take great joy in helping students.  It's a gift of mine.  


What types of students have you worked with?

All types!  Perfect students wanting perfect SAT/ACT scores. Failing students.  Ridiculously motivated students AND ridiculously UNmotivated students. 

I am a people person.  I am here to serve you.  I adapt my teaching plans and styles to what will best serve each individual.  No two students are alike! 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently helped a young girl improve her ACT score by fourteen points.  That's basically unheard of!  And more important than the increase in score, is the increase in her self-esteem, her confidence, and her hope for her future. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure they are qualified.  Be wary of companies that charge you a lot of money, and then pay relatively new tutors only $30-50 an hour.  Private tutors might be more experienced and better qualified.  

Get details on their experience.  How many students in the subject? How fresh are they on the content?  Get a sense of their integrity and make sure you are a good match.  

Lastly:  Communicate!  Let tutors know how to best serve you.  Speak up with concerns, ideas, likes, and dislikes.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

It's a dialogue!  Pick up the phone or shoot an email out and get the conversation going.  An experienced tutor will guide.
