    About Our Presenters

    Kristin Hayter-Amberg – Master Tutor, Admissions Counselor

    Kristin Hayter-Amberg is a lifelong Californian recently transplanted to Atlanta, GA. After growing up in a small town on California’s Central Coast, she decamped for Washington's University of Puget Sound, where she received a BA in English Literature. She and her 100 linear feet of books then returned to California's San Francisco Bay Area to pursue a MA at Sonoma State University, specializing in English Early Modern Theater and Gender Theory. When not teaching, she designs literary-inspired knitting patterns while listening to NPR or better acquaints herself with Southern food and Southern writers.

    A Princeton Review instructor and tutor since 2001, Kristin proves that standardized tests are truly background neutral as she teaches SAT, ACT, LSAT, and GRE with equal aplomb despite not taking a math course requiring a calculator in more than a dozen years and having no background in law (unless Law & Order reruns count.) Her encouraging yet methodical approach makes her a favorite of math-phobes and non-native English speakers, and her ability to separate test-smarts from real intelligence helps her push strong students to optimize their scores.

    Erika Loupee – Standard Tutor

    Erika Loupee is certified to teach and tutor strategies for both the SAT and ACT. Her favorite things about teaching for TPR include meeting new people and helping her students reach their goal test scores! Originally from Savannah, GA, Erika has lived in Atlanta for over three years; she is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology where she is a member of the President’s Scholarship Program. She hopes to pursue a career in drug design, development, and delivery. A former Georgia Tech cheerleader and current Georgia Tech club gymnast, Erika also competes in Olympic weightlifting and tied for third at the 2012 National Collegiate Championships. She can also be found coaching at Crossfit Atlanta, where she has received certification for Level 1 Trainer, Kids Trainer, and CPR. Her hobbies include soccer, logic puzzles, and learning new cooking methods from Food Network.

    Nina Hyvarinen – Master Tutor

    Nina Hyvarinen graduated with honors from Florida State University with a Bachelors in Biology and minor in chemistry. She also received a Bachelors in Psychology with a minor in Child Development from Florida State. While at FSU she published research in Neuroscience, served as a teaching assistant for the Biology department and was inducted as a member of Phi Beta Kappa. She deferred entry into medical school to participate in the Teach For America program here in Metro Atlanta. Through Teach For America she has taught middle school and high school science in APS and Dekalb county. Nina was born in Finland and is fluent in Finnish and English. She was a dance major in high school and enjoys the occasional dance class, playing with her dog and spending time with friends. At TPR she teaches/tutors MCAT Biology, MCAT Verbal and SAT.
