Crystal was born on the small island of Trinidad and Tobago where she spent her formative years. During that time, she received a rigorous education designed by the British system. She has a BA in Religious Studies from the University of Virginia. Crystal discovered her passion for teaching at St. Christopher’s Preschool in Virginia where she taught toddlers and preschoolers. Crystal started private tutoring in 2013, which served as an extension of the classroom and gave her the opportunity to teach students one-on-one. Over the past 8 years, she has worked with students ranging in age from 4 to 25 as well as in varying stages and levels in overall development and academic pursuits. She resides in Maryland and enjoys singing, writing and spending time in nature.
