All of Christine’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Christine’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

College Counseling

I earned a Masters in Science in Educational Psychology from Cal State Hayward. I was licensed as a Marriage Family Child Therapist. I majored in English and minored in Communications for my B.A. degree.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught for 10 years in elementary schools. I taught at Sacred Heart Schools in Greenwich CT and in San Francisco. I have experience tutoring children and adults in reading, writing, and test preparation strategies.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math in classroom and private tutor settings for over 6 years. I use a multi-sensory approach so that math concepts are learned through games and manipulation of physical objects.

Phonics

I earned a Master's Degree in Educational Psychology, including coursework in elementary education. I taught in private elementary schools for 10 years. I tutored in the Riverside Unified School District and at the San Jacinto Public Library for 3 years. I use a multi-sensory approach based on the Lindamood-Bell Phoneme Sequencing Program.

Proofreading

I have proofread professionally while I was employed by The Academy for Future Science from 2005-2013. This included proofreading books (The Overself Awakening, and The Seventy Two Living Divine Names of the Most High), articles, and promotional materials for events. This also included checking words in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.

Reading

I have taught reading in elementary schools and in private tutoring sessions for over 10 years. I use a multi-sensory approach with emphasis on phonics to take the guesswork out of reading. Methods I use include Lindamood-Bell, Orton Gillingham, and "Brain Gym". Attitudes change quickly from "I can't" to "I CAN!"

Study Skills

I have taught in classrooms and as a tutor to help students learn many subjects. Study skills required for success in learning include organization, time management, establishing study habits, keeping motivation high, transforming negative mindsets, attitudes and beliefs, and behavior modification. These skills are developed in a step-by-step manner with constant monitoring to stay on track and adjust to individual needs of the student. I provide support and correction when needed to establish a solid foundation of study skills.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
