Hello! My name is Christine, and I am a current 6th grade math teacher. I have taught in the classroom for the past 11years (9 years in 7th grade and 2 years in 6th grade) and have been tutoring math from Pre-k through Calculus for the past 15 years. I have my Bachelors in Elementary Education from West Chester University and my Masters in Mathematics Education from Widener University. I also hold New Jersey and Pennsylvania teaching certificates from Kindergarten through high school. My family of now five and I reside in Mullica Hill. My husband and I have a five year old (going on 20), a three year old and a one year old, along with our first born, our dog.
As a teacher, I believe in a balanced based approach between the "new math" and traditional teaching methods. I believe students understand math better when they see the real-life application of it in the real world. But, I also whole-heartedly believe the basics are essential. I am very up to date on the new Common Core Standards at all levels and was a member of the curriculum revision team in the school district where I am employed. I am also familiar with MAPS tests and ASK (soon to be PARCC) testing. Depending on the level of math and the personality of each student, I teach using many different teaching styles and math programs such as Everyday Math, Connected Math, PMI and traditional text books.
As a mother of three, I know what it is like to place your trust in someone to care for your child. Therefore, I treat every student as I would want my children to be treated. I am stern but caring, serious but fun, and nurturing but have high expectations of all of my students.
Together as a team, you and I can help your child to do his or her best. I look forward to working with you and your child!
I am a certified and current teacher in the public schools. My New Jersey certification is k-12. In PA, I am certified k-6. I have my BS in Elementary Education from West Chester University. I believe in and understand the Core Content Standards as well as the NJ state testing (ASK) for all grade levels.
I have passed six different Praxis Exams (I and II). These include both elementary and high school levels (k-12). I have taken and passed all tests for Pennsylvania and New Jersey certification requirements the first time I took each exam. I have also taken and passed the Middle School Math as well as the High School Math exam.
Great Success for Praxis! — Before being tutored by Christine, I was unsure of how to properly solve many of the math problems that showed up on the Elementary Education Praxis 2 math section. Christine showed me many helpful strategies and techniques, as well as provided me with many resources to give me the most practice. She was always consistent when it came to meeting for tutoring and always made herself available for q ...
