    Christine Kraft


    Christine grew up in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York but has lived in Florida for 21 years already! She received her Bachelor’s with Honors and Master’s degrees in Accounting from the University of Florida, a top 15 accounting school in the US. She has practiced as a Certified Public Accountant, CPA, in the Tampa Bay area and Rochester, New York. Christine has worked in public accounting and also has held various accounting management roles in private and public companies ranging in revenues from $125M-$8.7B. She is especially skilled in managing her teams and is an excellent listener who trained her team members for both individual and group success. She routinely conducted workshops and meetings, as well as evaluated her employees’ skill sets with respect to their goals and performance, much like teachers and tutors do with their students.

    In her spare time, Christine enjoys long walks with Abby, her pup. They like to dabble together in agility training, which her pup is much better at than Christine as her handler! She also enjoys reading, college football, travel, yoga, gardening, photography and special times with family and friends.

    I attribute my successful career and the opportunities I have had in my life to the solid educational foundation I was afforded as a young person. My strong educational background opened doors for me on my quest to own my own local business, Tutor Doctor, and at the same time show gratitude by giving back to others and by supporting my community, both Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch. Through Tutor Doctor, I am able to foster my own understanding of other people’s needs and passions, such as personal growth, determination, curiosity, ingenuity, and self-reliance. I am proud to support students in their personal desire to improve themselves through learning and to focus on fulfilling their lifetime dreams one day. For me, that is success!

    On behalf of Tutor Doctor and all of our tutors, I welcome the opportunity to work with your family and your children to help them succeed in their studies. Please feel free to contact me at any time at your convenience. Thank you!”
