Kristal Jameson

Algebra & Geometry Department Head & Academic Tutor

As long as I can remember, math was my favorite subject. The rush of acing a timed arithmetic test evolved into drawing a deep satisfaction from breaking down complex problems and reaching the eventual triumph.

After high school, I moved from my small hometown to nearby St. Paul, Minnesota to attend St. Catherine University. Initially on the engineering track, I switched majors after realizing I was only attracted to engineering because it seemed like a sensible way to keep doing math.

During college, I tutored in my university’s walk-in tutor center and for the mathematics department, helping students with everything from brushing up on basic skills to mastering calculus. After graduation and working as a programmer at an insurance company for a few years, I realized how much I missed math. Returning to the rewarding challenge of tutoring seemed only natural.

My experience tutoring both in college and at AJ have shaped my conviction that the notion of an individual being a “math person” or “not a math person” is simply false. I truly believe that with the right help and enough patience and hard work, anyone can achieve their math-related goals. It is my goal to help students feel comfortable with the hard work math can require and to share the joy that comes with the “aha!” moments that make it all worthwhile.

In my spare time, you might find me out for a drive enjoying the sunshine or reading with my dog snuggled up beside me.
