academic tutoring

for LGBTQ+

and gender expansive

elementary and middle school students

in a welcoming, affirming space

2023 GRANT

Hi! I'm Kris.

I'm a certified K-8 teacher with over 17 years of teaching experience both in and out of the classroom.  I’m dedicated to creating a supportive space where LGBTQ+ students can discover who they are, what lights them up, and what they can contribute to the world. This is a safe academic space where kids can be completely themselves.

  • 1:1 tutoring sessions, individually tailored to your child's needs
  • available in-person in the Santa Cruz, CA area or online via Zoom
  • sliding scale and scholarships available
“My 11-year-old non-binary child's academic performance has improved tremendously this year, as well as their confidence. We are grateful for Kris’ engaged teaching, student-centered approach, and new (to us) learning activities."


2023 Scholarship Grant

Birds of a Feather received a grant from the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County to support queer youth! I'm now offering scholarships to make tutoring accessible for all.
