About Christie

My name is Christie V. I have been an educator for 21 years and have taught all types of learners. The most rewarding aspect of teaching for me is to see the proverbial, “light go on” when students find their successful learning style. I have been the teacher of students who did not speak English with no desire to learn. By finding their learning strengths, I was able to inspire them. I have also taught gifted students who were not working up to their potential. By tailoring the curriculum to their interests and needs, they too became motivated and succeeded. I know that some students also have commitments outside of the school environment that may hinder their learning. Finding solutions to all of the above issues and more is a positive experience for me.

I have kept current with my educational knowledge. I am qualified to teach in many subjects and regularly attend workshops to enhance my knowledge. I have a Master’s Degree in Education. I have taken many additional classes to be well trained in the disciplines that I teach. Course work I have completed includes; Computer Science, Psychology, English as Second Language, Asian and Hispanic Culture, Spanish, Art, History, Math, and Reading.

I am a sensitive teacher who understands the individualized needs of students. I pride myself on providing a positive environment for all types of students. Finding the students’ learning styles is an amazing endeavor. I once found that a mildly autistic student was not succeeding because she only learned while sitting on the ground. Once given a bean bag chair, she started improving immediately. A gifted student in my class was failing in math. I realized that he was easily distracted and when I taught him how to focus, his grades went up. Teaching and tutoring is a wonderful experience for me.

I look forward to meeting you.
