Hello! My name's Christina. I work with many different types of students. I am able to teach students with disabilities, especially students who have autism or on the spectrum. I can give extra guidance in all areas such as literacy, language arts, and social studies. In my experience, many students need to learn through different strategies and a variety of ways. Once I have met your child, I am able to understand how your child learns best. Most students do very well once I give them different ways of learning the material that they are struggling with, such as visual aids, strategies to use while learning material, and hands-on manipulatives so they can visually understand the information. I am an educator who wants every child to have the opportunity to succeed. I'm a very determined teacher who will stop at nothing for a student to understand information they are struggling with. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
