About Christine

I am a graduate from Rollins College in Winter Park, Fl and a professional teacher who loves working one on one with students to offer targeted tutoring that meet the needs of the individual learner. I currently have a B.A in English with minors in Writing and Education, and I am working on a Master's in English Language Arts Education. I have over ten years of experience teaching and tutoring various age groups (8-adult) in writing, reading, grammar, test prep and other areas, as well. I am also certified, in the state of Florida, to teach English to grades 6-12 as well as ESL Education. I have a diverse background with ESE students, and I know how to teach to the needs of each learner through years of assessing different learning styles. I am a patient and professional tutor who can guarantee satisfaction, dedication, and results.

When selecting me as a prospective tutor, please consider what you can expect.

I love language, tutoring, and education in general. I am very excited about the work I participate in, and feel that teaching and learning go hand and hand, which is why I plan to further my education throughout my life. I believe that while molding a teaching experience for each individual student, it is important to consider his/her unique educational needs. This is an opportunity that the tutor is always fortunate enough to take part in that the classroom teacher must, too often, sacrifice to sheer number of students and strict lesson plan guidelines. Knowing this natural advantage to the tutoring environment, I realize that I must work to reap its benefits by paying close attention to my students and constantly tweaking my style for different learners. As such, I prefer a student that I can work with more than once or twice. It allows me to learn his/her individual needs and apply the best teaching approach. I believe strongly in tutoring that is fun, but productive and effective.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with hundreds of grades K-6 students since I started tutoring in 2004. When I graduated Rollins in 07, I thought my calling was with college students, so I decided to go for my teaching certification in secondary grades first. Yet, I did a lot of tutoring before I was hired as a teacher, and at that time, most of my students were from grades K-5. Since then, I've continued to tutor K-6, as well. Therefore, I have not added the state certification to my teaching credentials, yet, but I still have a large range of experience with this age group in all subject areas; I even home schooled a 2nd grader creating the curriculum from scratch.

English

I am a certified English teacher for students in grades 6-12. I majored in English in college, and I am currently pursuing my M.A in English Language Arts Education, so English is my area of greatest experience, education, and expertise. I have added experience teaching ESL students, and I am also comfortable with tutoring English related test-prep. I have worked with students ranging from pre-K through college.

Grammar

I have a background in teaching English, and I am especially interested in how English varies structurally from other languages. Because of my background studying and teaching English, I can make grammar seem much less random for students. I believe in teaching grammar structurally as opposed to descriptively, and this helps students to understand the way the grammar is working on the language, so that they can begin to recognize patterns in language. This method is especially great for ESL students, but it is helpful for anyone because it takes the mystery out of grammar.
