My son, a 4th grader, has made lots of improvement after taking lessons with Christine. He used to have trouble grabbing the main theme from the story for book report. Christine asked him some leading questions and guided him to read the book effectively. Through writing exercises, she taught the guidelines of writing by giving basic and easy to follow rules. My son has been able to self correct his own writing following her instructions.
Most importantly, my child starts to enjoy writing now. He can come up with ideas of writing and correct his own writings. Christine is a special gift. We all feel that with her as a writing tutor, my child will be a successful and confident writer. No more headache for book reports!
"Could not have found a better tutor for my son."
Rui from Bellevue, WA on 10/27/13
My son is currently in 9th grade. He enjoys creative writing but has long expressed the desire to advance his writing skill, particularly in essay writing. It has been challenging for us to find a tutor whose teaching style fits his needs. We came across Dr. Christine H. on WyzAnt based on the stellar reviews left by her students, and decided to give it a try. After three sessions with Dr. H., my son and I both knew that he has found his tutor.
Dr. H.'s style is pragmatic and effective. At the same time, she also focuses on developing the student's literary interest so writing skill is not merely a tool. She took my son step by step through a structured approach towards writing while keeping the tutoring session fun and engaging. The result shows. There is a striking contrast between the same essay my son wrote before and after the three sessions. The sense of accomplishment was palpable on his face after the last lesson was over. We will stay with Dr. H. for long term.
"Beyond Great Tutor!!!"

First of all, Christine is very kind, polite and super friendly. She also truly cares that her student learns and be better at subject matter. she is very patient, professional and she has a very efficient method to help you find the answers on your own and think better. Her rich and diversified background in culture and knowledge is definitely helpful and makes her Excel at everything she does. I have had the pleasure and the true honor to work with her on helping me editing and proofreading my research paper and she did a fantastic job. I have learnt a lot from her and her skills so I can do it on my own as well. I highly recommend her as an amazingly excellent tutor!!!
"Great tutoring "
Wahida from Issaquah, WA on 10/3/13
There are lots of knowledgeable teachers but best to me is the one who can grow interest on learning. Christine's positive approach and constructive criticism was very helpful. My kids are happy and so do I.
"Great tutor to help you achieve your goals."

English is my second language. I wanted to find a sophisticated and knowledgeable tutor to improve my writing and public speaking. At first, I was somewhat skeptical if I could find a perfect tutor on line, but I decided to contact Christine anyway because her international experiences and the knowledge in art intrigued me. It did not take long to realize that she was the perfect tutor for me.
I was very impressed in our first session by how she approached the lesson. As an educator myself, I have observed a variety of ways of teaching students. For Christine, her best interest is to find a tailored approach to fit an individual student’s goal. Every time, she tries her best to help you improve by giving you a candid diagnosis, appropriate explanation, and warm encouragement. I am sure that she has a different approach to every single student, because every student is different in his/her goals, abilities, experiences, and personalities. She doesn’t only correct errors in my writings or correct my pronunciations. She deeply gets into the subject matters. I was amazed by the range and depth of expertise she has. You can find the subjects in her bio, and she is not bluffing. With Christine, I do not just practice a language technically, but also enhance my critical thinking. Language is best learned when it has a meaning in your life and when it is engaged in your thoughts, I believe. Her sweet and patient personality also makes her a great tutor. Christine will help you to get to the level you aimed to reach.
"Exceptional and Insightful Tutor!"

I have been with Christine for two weeks and my ACT Writing has already improved immensely! She is very patient and always points out my strengths and weaknesses. We get so much done in one lesson! I love that we can work together to create a plan that allows me to improve my writing skills from now till test day. I am so glad that I got to meet her and I look forward to working with her in the future!
Christine replied on 9/9/2013:
She is a gifted writer, and the sparkle and humor in her personal statement prove it. We work on getting that same 'voice', passion, and reasoning into her ACT writing. I have no doubt she will succeed brilliantly!

Christine is very well-oriented writing tutor who knows how to write appealing essays. She also has some great tips to write efficiently. In addition, she tries to her best to help improving students' weakness on writing. Great Tutor!
Sushama from Redmond, WA on 7/20/13
Christine can connect personally with both my kids 10 and 13 years old (and who are two different personalities). They have an hour each for Writing. The classes are geared toward their level and pace. Progress is seen every week. Not a single minute is wasted. She is very knowledgeable and the kids are really motivated! I am really happy we found her!
"Really happy to have her as our kids' writing tutor"
Ron from Redmond, WA on 7/12/13
Christine teaches creative writing to two of our kids- a 5th grader and a 3rd grader. Kids really enjoy her style. She gives challenging homework and keeps the kids engaged and focused on the topic. She explains everything well and provides feedback rightaway, which is very helpful.
