About Christine

I am a 29 year old college graduate. I studied English literature at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. And I am currently attending the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs for a graduate certificate in grant writing. During my time at CSU I helped other peers editing their papers and wrote many of my own. I gained extensive knowledge of grammar, editing and organization when it comes to writing papers. I also took seminars and worked on my studying skills for college level courses. I have experience in tutoring students for the ACT reading and writing sections.

I nannied for over ten years in which I helped children in kindergarten and first grade learn how to read and write. When I finally finished college I began tutoring two high school students who were prepping for the ACT. I specifically helped them with studying tips, taking the written portion and how to better serve their time during the reading section. I have a passion for English and am currently applying to grad school so I can become a teacher. I want to work with kids and help them overcome any fears they may have with English.
