About Christin

I am a former English and Language Arts teacher for the Bethel School District. I was employed there for eight years and currently hold a Bachelor's Degree in English and a Master's Degree in Instructional Technology. Although I have been home for the last three years raising my two, young children, that has only fueled my desire to impact youth and I am drawn to continue my service as an educator. My experience teaching, both at the high school and middle school level, provides me with the insight to instruct appropriately and effectively. I understand that each student needs a unique learning experience, and I will strive to provide him or her with the tools needed to reach achievement and solve real-world problems.

In order to work with students needing support services, I believe an instructor needs to first understand the way in which a student learns best, whether it be visual, hands on, through group learning or tiered instruction. It is vital to have a positive rapport with students in order for them to feel safe to take academic risks and thrive when facing challenges. I feel that my previous teaching experience lends itself to tutoring role, and I am confident in my ability to communicate appropriately with parents and teachers. Along with being hard-working, I am also good-natured, compassionate, and team-oriented.


I believe my compassion for others, love for children and patience with students will make me a strong candidate for your position.
