"My son first met Kristen in 2nd grade before Kids Under Construction was created. By 3rd grade we were having fun, learning science and understanding how to create projects. Now that he is in AP classes in Wilson High School, her early learning technique STILL comes in handy. Kristen and her staff are much more than a "tutoring business". It is a learning experience that can help a child develop study habits and understand how to approach HW, projects and testing. Thank you Kristen for your commitment and passion for any child who is in need of just grasping a subject or excelling and going to the next level. Fight On! And 8 Clap!" -Susie, as posted on Yelp

 

"I have worked with Kristen for many years in a variety of capacities. I first met her as a college student when she came to my school to volunteer in 1st grade. Later, I had the privilege of being her mentor teacher. In addition, she is a regular substitute in my class and is always the first all I make when I know I'll be missing workdays. Lastly, Kristen has tutored many of my students and I have recommended her services to friends of mine. Kristen has a positive attitude with children and adults alike. Kristen's positive attitude also shows in the lessons she plans for students. They are creative, fun, and appropriate for the variety of levels in the class. Her creativity makes her tutoring sessions fun for her students and more importantly, what the students are learning with Kristen in transferring to the classroom setting. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for her services."​ -Mentor and LBUSD Teacher

 

I just graded her chapter test, and she earned 81%, a B-!  That's one of the highest grades in the class!!" -6th Grade Reading & Language Arts Core Teacher​

She will help my kids on any day of the week, If they need help on something they text her or call her and she is always quick to help. I would trust my kids in her hands anytime, that should say a lot. Knowing how much we love our kids." -Stan, as posted on Yelp

You are truly an amazing young woman! Isn't it interesting how when a huge door closes you can build a ramp and soar over the whole building? We wish you much success in your business ventures." ​-Family Friend and LBUSD Teacher​

 

"My wife and I exhausted every concept we could think of attempting to help our daughter with her homework. We felt hopeless. We had a meeting with Kristen about our dilemma, and she convinced us to have her come spend 1 hour with our daughter. That WONDERFUL day happened two days later! Kristen accomplished MORE with our daughter in 1 hour than BOTH of us did in a MONTH! K.U.C. became a regularly scheduled welcome to our home. We were amazed with Kristen's results! She also helped our daughter develop organizational skills that will help her for the rest of her LIFE! THANK YOU Kids Under Construction!!!" -Ben, as posted on Yelp

"Kristen, thank you so much for the opportunity to work with you these past 3 years. Your wealth of knowledge and support are one-of-a-kind. I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you and all that you do, have done, and will do for me. You'll always be on my speed dial!" -Former KUC Tutor

 

"Kristen has been tutoring my boys since they were in preschool. Both my kids are ADHD and have IEP's for learning problems.....that being said she has spent time getting to know them and how THEY learn, what works and what doesn't. Even though we no longer live in the area I know that if I need help understanding their homework I can call her and she is always willing to talk us through it. She finds the time to fit us in every summer so they can retain what they spent all year learning. What is even more important is my kids enjoy learning with her (they will deny it). She has truly become part of our family!!" -Sarah, as posted on Yelp

 

"My 11th grader just has his first tutoring lesson with Lauren last night. She ROCKS! She really explained the lessons well and he was so into it they went over the time by 5 minutes! That has never happened! Thanks for providing our family with a great tutor!" -Ecstatic High School Mom

 

"Kristen is amazing! What she does isn't a job, its a CALLING. She has dedicated her personal and professional life to educate children. If that wasn't enough she does it in a fun, structured, safe, and loving environment. Thank you Kristen!!" -Leanne, as posted on Yelp
