Hello, my name is Christina and I have a lot of experience working with children in both academic tutoring, as well as in sports. I am available to tutor swimming, soccer, biology, genetics, and elementary school subjects.
I do not believe in giving out answers or necessarily being a facilitator. I like to teach, first and foremost. I want students to learn how to study, look for answers, and reason on their own. Once this is taught, learning follows easily. I help students with their assignments, but sometimes they need to struggle on their own, and with the right kind of guidance, they are able to help themselves. I like hearing, "Oh, now I get it!"
My tutoring availability is as follows:
Sun- 8am-4pm (starting in November)
I was part of a swimming team for 10 years and for my high school swim team. I have experience working as a certified lifeguard for three years and have taught learn-to-swim lessons (public and private) for three years. I have my WSI (water safety instructor) certification, as well as a current American Red Cross CPR certification. Additionally, I currently coach and referee soccer (3 to 12-year-old children). I have done this for over two years.
I have a bachelor's degree in biology and am currently applying to medical school. I am well able to explain things (biology or genetics related) in a clear, concise manner. I have also tutored elementary level students in all subjects, as a volunteer for a community service program, for over a year.
