EducationGraduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry/Cell Biology & a minor in Psychology at UC San Diego in 2011. Graduated from Moorpark College with nursing degree May 2015.
ExperienceI worked at Kumon Math & Reading Learning center for about 4 years now, while private tutoring on the side. I tutored a range of subjects, mainly all math levels & chemistry. I also babysat on the weekends. With all my experience with kids and tutoring, I understand which methods work with each individual child & will cater to his/her own specific needs.
HobbiesRecently became a registered nurse at Kaiser & striving to be a nurse practitioner one day!

Crystal has made a tremendous difference for my son's academic performance and confidence. We initially sought her out when he was failing Algebra, feeling hopeless and frustrated. After working with Crystal regularly, he earned straight A's in the class, including the final exam. He raised his grade beyond what even his teacher thought possible and more importantly gained the confidence he needed to remain successful. Crystal is highly effective and tailored her approach to cater to his individual needs. As a teen, he was apprehensive about working one on one with a tutor but her outstanding interpersonal skills immediately put him at ease, establishing an extremely productive dynamic. When he started Chemistry this year, we immediately contacted her again to assist with the more complex material. Once again he is earning A's. Crystal has worked wonders, not only with his performance but with his overall attitude overall towards school!
Crystal was our savior! We were desperately looking for help for my son who was enrolled in Pre-Calculus and pulling a D! Crystal to the rescue! She took the time for go over homework and problems that he didn't understand. You could see the lightbulb go off!! She clearly knows math and has a very natural teaching style that made my son comfortable. She worked around our schedule and even came in a moments notice just so he could be ready for a test. My son and I recommend her 1000% to anyone having difficulties in Pre-Calculus or any highschool math, without reservation! She was truly a a Godsend!!
Crystal helped my granddaughter on the trig portion of her algebra2/ trig class and did an excellent job. Crystal was positive with her and had a complete understanding of the algorithms involved. Thanks, Crystal.
She is wonderful! She arrives on time. She works well with my daughter! I would recomend her!
Crystal is a very effective and professional tutor.I highly recommend her. She arrives to the tutoring session prepared and on time. Grades will definitely improve with Crystal help.
I would highly recommend Crystal as a tutor. Aside from knowing her stuff, she is very professional, was flexible and always punctual. We hired Crystal to tutor my daughter in algebra. My daughter does not get math, does not like math, and was close to finishing her senior year in high school and was failing algebra. Crystal not only helped my daughter pass algebra and graduate, but her influence allowed my daughter to tolerate math. I'd give her more than 5 stars if I could.
Crystal has been a great tutor for our daughter on Pre-Calculus. She works with her as needed and is always very prepared. She often asks for the information to be worked on ahead of time so that she can be fully up to speed and ready to work. The hour is a full, information filled hour. Not only has it helped in understanding, Crystal has been a resource and given my daughter confidence that she can do this. We could not be more satisfied, given that she just received an A in her fall semester class.
