About Christine

Hello!

My name is Christine, and I have been teaching since 2004. I have a B.S. in chemical engineering from UC Berkeley and a M.S. in mathematics from California State University. I currently teach at the University level and have taught everything from basic math and algebra all the way up to calculus. I started my college career at a community college. The first class I ever taught was Intro to Statistics and it is the class I have taught more than any other course. I have also taught (and tutored) basic math, algebra (I, II, and college), trigonometry, finite math and calculus. I am certainly capable of and have tutored other math courses such as higher level calculus and linear algebra. Please let me be your ticket to passing your next math class! Know that when hiring a tutor you should be selective because knowing math and being able to communicate the math language are two different things! Since I have been teaching, helping students in office hours and tutoring in the tutoring center at school I know how to get students to understand math on their own. I tutor the math and science sections of the ACT and SAT. Before I started teaching I was an engineer in the semiconductor industry. I wrote chemical recipes for making microchips. It was a very creative and challenging job which taught me how to communicate with not only engineers but also many non-engineering types. I am very good at breaking complicated topics down to simple understanding.

I can help you if:
* You need a little one on one guidance
* You just have one more math class to pass before graduation
* You are preparing for a standardized test
* You need testing techniques
* You need help managing your time
* You focus on the most important aspects of the course
* You need a patient and capable math expert!

In addition to the zip code listed, I am frequently in the DTC and downtown Denver areas.

Thank you for reading my ad!

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.

Linear Algebra

I received a Bachelors on Science degree from University of California at Berkeley where linear algebra was part of the core curriculum. I then continued my education and obtained a Masters in Science degree from California State University East Bay in applied mathematics where I took more advanced courses in linear algebra. I am currently teaching at Metropolitan State University of Denver and teach many of the topics that are covered in linear algebra. This semester I am teaching Computational Matrix Algebra which is entirely linear algebra.
