About Christine

I believe learning can and should be enjoyable. While textbooks and written assignments do have a place in my tutoring sessions, I spend considerable time in visual and conversational exercises. My lessons are tailored according to the ability and needs of each individual student. The creative approach I have to teaching and tutoring has been affirmed over the years through parents and students, as well as administrative officials.

My experience includes teaching preschool through adult level Spanish and ESL classes for persons from various nationalities. I have tutored both privately and through public and private schools. My husband, David, and I have raised six children - homeschooling each of them through high school and mentoring them through college.

My life experience includes living, traveling and studying abroad in Central and South America. I have also traveled to Asia and Europe.

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.

Bible Studies

Extensive knowledge of both Old and New Testaments of the Bible Experience in teaching pre-school through adult. Served a cumulative 5 years on the mission field.

ESL/ESOL

Having experienced living in foreign countries, I know first hand the frustration of struggling to learn a new language and customs of a country other than my birth country. Without the help of dedicated native teachers, I would have failed miserably. That is why, now back in my own country, I have a desire to help others in a similar situation.

I am a certified ESL teacher. I have taught ESL both in this country and in the countries of Chile and Colombia. I have also tutored elementary, high school, and adult level Spanish.

Spanish

My experience in Spanish includes a cumulative 4 years of study in the United States the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica. Besides living and studying in Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic, I have lived for 2 years in Colombia, South America and over a year in Chile, South America. Other travels in Spanish-speaking countries include Spain, Mexico, Panama, and Guatemala. I have taught Spanish in home school, high school, elementary school and tutoring venues for the past 20 years. I am excited about sharing the Spanish that I know and a culture that I enjoy with both students that desire to learn the language, as well as students who must include Spanish in their academic credits.

Highly Recommend, great teacher! — I have met with Christine for 4 lessons now and have really enjoyed learning Spanish with her. Christine uses a few different methods to keep the lesson engaging. We use books that I purchased (she recommended a few and I chose from the list), she has flashcards, we speak in Spanish (my speech is limited at this point), we also do handouts to help learn conjugation. I highly recommend Christine. S ...
