About Christina

I have my preliminary single subject teaching credential in English, and classroom teaching experience. Currently I have six consecutive years of tutoring experience, and have worked at an educational institute as well as in-home. I have worked with students from pre-K to twelfth grade, and am confident about helping students in all subject areas for homework help. I am especially qualified for English, Grammar, Reading, and Writing.

I love working with students of all ages, and am passionate about helping students achieve their academic and personal goals. I believe in building lasting relationships in order to gain students' trust and challenge them to meet their potential and exceed expectations. I work with students to improve or maintain their grades in school, and also find out if there are any areas in which students lack motivation, and try to help them see the value of learning. I believe in positive reinforcement, and encouraging students to find their unique abilities.

Communication with students and parents is crucial in my tutoring relationships. As an English teacher and tutor, I do my best to keep parents informed and I constantly communicate with students so that I can help them in the most effective way.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
