When I started tutoring, I was tutoring friends of mine in high school, and it was then that I knew I wanted to help others learn new things.

Hello, my name is Christine. I have plenty of experience tutoring since I began in 2001. My tutoring experience includes tutoring individuals and groups at the K-12 and university levels. When I started tutoring, I was tutoring friends of mine in high school, and it was then that I knew I wanted to help others learn new things. Once I started college, it made sense to me to choose tutoring as a career. Tutoring for the university was a particularly notable experience because I tutored students with learning disabilities, and this helped me become more flexible in my tutoring strategies.

I am always ready and willing to learn new things. Coupled with the ability to learn things quickly, I can tutor anyone who needs help. I am very adaptable and patient. My priority is to make sure students understand the material, and it is important to me to make tutoring fun. I always make sure to ask students if they have any questions and if we are going at a good pace. I am flexible in my approach and I am happy as long as my students are happy and learning.

I have had plenty of experience with art, and in particular, with drawing. I took classes in high school, which introduced us to multiple media, as well as, teach us the various concepts and techniques. In college, I took some art classes, drawing in particular, and I like to draw in my free time. I have also previously tutored art at the university I attended for various students. Drawing was a large component although my experience includes other areas.

Russian

My family on my mom's side is from Russia, so learning Russian is very intuitive to me. I grew up learning some from my grandma, and as such, I took to studying it on my own as well. I love the language and I have a strong grasp on all aspects of the grammar as well as pronunciation.

Study Skills

Working on study skills was a very important component while tutoring for the university. As tutors, we had regular trainings featuring study tips and techniques for all students, and particularly those with learning disabilities. This was particularly useful because these tips are applicable to everyone, and thus I can easily come up with a set of tips for any given student based on learning styles and what kind of help is needed. My training at the university has also been supplemented by both trainings and a summer program I have taught for two off-campus tutoring sites. These trainings included study tips for not only subjects that require memorization of facts, but also writing-heavy subjects, where outlines and brainstorming are useful, and foreign languages. My own experience in classes has also been very useful in coming up with various techniques, and this personal experience lets me know exactly what is out there and how I can help.

History

Sociology,

Sociology

I love sociology and I love tutoring it. I was one of the go-to tutors for any sociology-related subject at the university I attended, and I was always tutoring at least one student in the subject during any given quarter. My experience with tutoring sociology includes concepts, theories, and practical application. I can and have tutored students who needed help with writing papers, understanding concepts and how they work in society, and more technical aspects such as research methodology and analysis. This covered a variety of coursework, ranging from the basic intro classes to technical research methods and writing and classes geared towards particular areas.

Logic,

Logic

Throughout my education, I have become very knowledgeable in logic, particularly because it was crucial to most of my core courses. Passing multiple logic courses was a requirement for my philosophy degree, and I excelled in all related classes. I enjoy the subject immensely and I have tutored it, as well as critical thinking and related math courses.

Special Needs

Speech,

Speech

I have plenty of experience with speech and public communication. I have taken classes specifically geared towards speech, and many of my classes featured debates, which have greatly improved my speaking skills. These classes have featured both structured speeches and debates, as well as open debates, all of which helped with techniques, delivery, and the ability to think and respond quickly. Furthermore, I have extensive experience with helping others work their way through speech classes. I have both tutored numerous students with various aspects of speech and debate, ranging from picking topics to methods of delivery, and I have taught a summer course to a small group of students with an off-campus tutoring company where I held a summer job. This covered not only the techniques of speech writing, debating, and speaking in public, but the background and key points of the subject in general.

Sports/Recreation

Swimming

Swimming

My experience with swimming is extensive. It is by far my favorite sport and I have been involved with it since high school. In high school I was on the swim team, where I learned how to do each of the four competitive strokes, and of course, competed in various events, in all distances and all strokes. I also take classes at college, both for credit and non-credit. I have had the privilege of participating in a U.S. Master's training course, and I learned a variety of drills. It was definitely very intense. Since I am passionate about swimming, I also do it for fun at the gym, always working on my form and getting in shape. My various swimming courses have included water safety lessons and to complete everything, I am CPR certified.

Patient and kind

Christine was great, I felt at ease immediately. She explained how to work through the math problems and gave some great strategies! I would highly recommend her

Patient and Helpful

Christine helped me understand all concepts of logic clearly. She's patient and helped me pass my class with a B!

Attentive, quick minded and patient

I've delayed writing this review because I'm afraid I can't convey just how essential her help has been with my progress in college. I've met with Christine several times now and every minute has been valuable. She's helped me with chemistry, biology, and my first PowerPoint presentation. It's obvious she loves to tutor so I quickly got over any self-consciousness about not understanding a concept. Her patience never runs out. If she doesn't know the answer to something, she knows the right resources to quickly find the answer, and has a knack for reframing information into a new angle that helps me understand better. She's punctual, funny, cheerful, positive, easy to work with and knows a lot about many subjects. After meeting with her, my study time is much more productive - meaning I can accomplish a lot more in less time (and get excellent grades!) I can't recommend her enough!

Great Tutor!

Christine tutored me in philosophy. She gave great examples, and helped me prepare for my mid-term. Christine was able to meet me short notice and stay longer to help me out.

Kylie, 1 lesson with Christine

Best Tutor at WyzAnt! Kind and caring, knowledgeable and hard working!

I never needed a tutor in my life, but in the rare moment that I needed one Christine was more helpful than I could have ever asked or imagined! I encourage anyone that needs tutoring for any of the subject or disciplines that she helps with to consider her before any other tutors. You won't regret your decision!

Educational Psychology CLEP Exam Preparation

This was a great session. We seem to have a good system in place where I go over all materials (i.e. read books and flash cards, and also take practice tests) on my own. Then Christine and I go over the answers I got wrong on the practice exams and/or take some of these exams together. It works out great because we can focus on the weak areas. Now I have started scheduling the actual exams within 2-4 days of our session so that the information is fresh in my mind for the exams (which I seem to be passing so far).

Terrific Tutor

Christine tutored me in Organic Chemistry, a subject that is extremely difficult for me. She was patient, precise, and she even took notes on the material that I was having the most difficulty on. I did not do well on the exams I had before my tutoring session, but my exam afterwards, raised my exam score up a whole letter grade. I recommend Christine highly. She is an excellent tutor!

Fantastic Tutor!

Christine is great!! She can take difficult concepts and put them in words that I can understand!! I love science but it's not my strong point for sure. Also, that amount of scientific math that has to be done is over my head and she makes it totally understandable! She is great, I recommend her HIGHLY!!!
