About Cristina

I am currently a Graduate student working towards my Masters in Middle School Math education. This will certify me to teach grades 4-8, however, I also have experience tutoring at the High School level for grades 9 and 10.

Prior to my enrollment at the University of Georgia, I served with City Year Greater Philadelphia, an AmeriCorps program focused on addressing the high school drop our rate in the United States. While serving for City Year, I acted as a student advocate; tutoring academically and servind as a mentor. I am pationate about my future as a Math educator. I feel it is one of the most creative and useful skills to aquire while in school. My methods for teaching math are patience and relevence. Math is often associated with speed; if you can blurt out the question quickly, you must know what you are doing. In my tutoring methods, I instill the focus of creative thinking in math. I strive to have my students fully understand what mathematical concepts mean so that there is no stress of "memorization" because the steps of a problem now make sense.

Outside of tutoring, I enjoy soccer (I played my entire life and through my undergraduate years in college), running, and cooking (I can make some mean oatmeal cookies). I traveled abroad while in college, studying in Vienna, Austria where I tutored Math. I would love to answer any questions you have about myself, my experiences and qualifications.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of the most important skills of math to acquire. It builds the critical thinking skills that higher level math requires. I have tutored Algebra extensively in both middle schools and high schools.
