About Chrissybil

With over 10 years of international tutoring and teaching experience I have learned that education is more than just math and science. High quality education should be equally concerned with developing life skills such as creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem solving.

Education development is one of my life's greatest passions. I am the Founder and CEO of Merkabah International Foundation, Inc. This educational charity will build Ayiti's first art, science and technology elementary school. With environmental awareness as the cornerstone of learning, the school will be built with eco-friendly materials such glass bottles and bamboo. It will run on solar energy and will be equipped with a bio recyclable water filtration system. Through collaboration with social scientists, engineers and community members I am building digitized learning curriculum for elementary aged students.

I am a graduate from Florida State University and Emory University. I have degrees in Liberal Arts Education, Political Science and Women Gender Sex and Sexualities. I graduated college with a 3.8 GPA. In 2013, I served as the Intel for Change Education Ambassador for India. While in India I filmed a documentary about sustainability , education and development. I am currently the United Nations Global Youth Ambassador for education representing the United States.

I have recently been accepted to graduate programs at both Oxford and Cambridge University to obtain a Master's in Development/ Sustainable Urban Development Studies.

As a political and social scientist, education and life experiences have ignited my passion for teaching! I have traveled to over thirty countries and five continents in the last three years. These experiences have created the opportunity for me to engage in enriching cultural exchange. I am conversational in five languages and have taught children from around the world.

After traveling in India, South Korea and Ayiti, I became deeply convinced that self empowerment is developed when we become one with ourselves. This realization inspires me to dedicate every day of my life towards living in a state of increased balance, peace and mindfulness. I've trained in South Korea, New York and Atlanta to teach mind and body practice. I am certified to teach brain education by Dahn Yoga specializing in child yoga, wellness and mindfulness.

If you live in the South Florida area and are in need of assistance I am available for both temporary and long-term services. For more information please contact me to schedule a free consultation.

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.

ACT English

Want to improve your chances of collegiate success? One effective way is by raising your test scores. Colleges and universities are often looking for more than "a number." Still, SAT scores are an important part of the college entrance process.

As a graduate of a top 20 university I understand how important testing can be in the admission process. For five years I have tutored middle and high school students for college entrance exams specializing in the reading and writing portion of the SAT. Here are a few things you should know about the exam:

1) It is designed to be challenging! This means it is imperative that you learn TO STUDY THE TEST!

2) EVERYONE can improve their score with some practice!

NOTE: Studying and review is necessary but with consistent effort you will be prepared to score higher on your exam! I will introduce you to helpful test taking strategies that you can apply when you are unsure of the right answer.Lets use your strengths to improve upon your weaknesses!

After assessing the specific skills you will need to improve upon we can come up with a plan to help you succeed. In our session we will pay special attention to time management, reading comprehension and test strategies. We will review core subject concepts you forgot or are struggling with ! Invest in yourself ! Sign up for your first session today!

I have over 10 years of experience tutoring common core. As a curriculum builder for my educational non profit Merkabah International Foundation I have experience in both teaching and creating digital curriculum based on common core standards. I specialize in K- 8 education. I enjoy working with older students as well.

Through the use of workbook exercises, projects, digital media and animation multidisciplinary learning comes to life.

Elementary Science

As the founder of Merkabah International Foundation, I am preparing science and technology based teaching materials for my elementary school in Ayiti.

Using earthship technology this building will be "off the grid." Our school will power itself using solar energy and will be equipped with a bio recyclable water filtration.

I am currently working with a group of engineers to prepare curriculum that enable children to learn how to use these emerging technologies.

When your child receives tutoring in science and technology he or she will be equipped with rich curriculum materials.

Though digital media, projects and assignments your student will learn the elementary concepts of environmentalism, science and technology.

My experience as a political scientist, teacher and public employee allows me to create lesson plans tailored for real life application and understanding.

No matter what subject matter you are interested in reading is an essential part of life.

I have 10 years of experience teaching elementary, middle and high school aged students about reading.
