Hi, my name is Christine and I am a graduate of Rider University, where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Business Education. I taught in a public high school for 12 ½ years, and I am currently teaching online from home. I have taught (or are currently teaching) the following courses: Computer Fundamentals, Introduction to Web Design, Introduction to Microsoft Office, Marketing, Sports and Venue Marketing, Desktop Publishing, Multimedia, Personal Finance, Image Editing and Design, and Career Awareness. My work experience and education have taught me about organization, effective study skills, and time management, which I would love to teach to others. I have almost 20 years’ experience working in various industries has also given me an good idea of what employers expect, which helps me when I am teaching students to gear them for life in the workforce.

When working with students, I am very patient and thorough. I will help struggling students by working through the situations with them and providing additional questions/problems to ensure that they have a complete understanding of the subject. I will provide them with as little or as much assistance as they need!

I completely enjoy working with students and believe my education and past experience give me a lot to offer them.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Business

I have a degree in Business Education and have taught in a high school setting for the past 12 1/2 years. I have taught various business subjects, including Marketing, Personal Finance, Sports and Venue Marketing, and Introduction to Business. I also worked out in industry for almost 20 years before becoming a business teacher; so I am well aware of what employers expect.

Career Development

I have attended various schools over the years, worked in a number of industries, and taught Career Awareness to high school students. My own career has taken many twists and turns; I feel this helps me when talking to others about their career choices. Working with high school students for 12 1/2 years has also enabled me to learn about different career paths, write different types of resumes, and be able to research the necessities of any career.

Desktop Publishing

When working in industry, I was responsible for creating brochures, pamphlets, posters, presentations, and catalogs. My Associates degree is in Advertising Design, before it was computerized. I have worked over the years to keep current with technology. I have also taught Desktop Publishing (Microsoft Publisher) and Multimedia in a high school setting.

Dreamweaver

In my role as a business teacher, I taught Introduction to Web Design using Dreamweaver for the past eight years. I currently have two versions of Dreamweaver on my computers at home. I am constantly working to keep my technology skills up to date.

Marketing

I have an Associates degree in Advertising Design. I have my Marketing certificate along with my Business Education certificate to be able to teach it in the state of New Jersey. I also taught a semester-long Marketing course for the past 12 years in a high school setting.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used Microsoft Outlook for over a decade in my last few jobs. I used it for my home and work email, calendar, and contacts. I have the entire Microsoft Office Suite on my home/work computers.

Microsoft Publisher

I taught a desktop publishing course using Publisher for five years at my brick-and-mortar high school. I also used it for various committees/events at the high school. I would show my students and peers how to use the software when they needed it for another class or event they were organizing.

Web Design

I have design experience from my Associates degree (Advertising Design) and various positions in industry where I had to create small web pages/sites for company intranets. I also taught Introduction to Web Design for approximately eight years in a high school setting. I taught web design in an Adult School setting as well to the local business community.
