About Christine

Are you heading into the college application process and feeling totally overwhelmed? Do you need to organize, prioritize, and just have someone to help you do the right things at the right time? Are you a parent and not sure how best to support your college-bound child? Contact me and let me help you get a head start on your post-high school plans! I am willing to work with you in-person or through video conferencing.

I am an experienced, certified, Professional School Counselor, with a Master of Science in Counseling from The Johns Hopkins University. During my 10-year career, I have worked with students in private and public school settings, guiding them through the college application process - choosing the right schools, creating strong application profiles, determining the best school from admissions, and completing financial aid and other processes. I can provide essay writing support and interview preparation, and I am willing to be a sounding board for both students and parents. I can provide support for the FAFSA, CSS/Profile, NCAA Clearinghouse, and other applications as well.

I prefer to work with students at the beginning of the application process - before applications have been submitted. It is my hope that we can plan together, and check in regularly to develop a path to college that works for each student.

If you are interested in more information, please contact me and let me help you reach your goals.

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.

ACT English

My work as a school counselor allows me to train students for success on the SAT, the ACT, and writing the college essay.

Career Development

I have a background in career development through my work as a High School counselor - I have helped students prepare for career-related exams (ASVAB), interpret results and take the "next steps".

College Counseling

I am an experienced school counselor, certified in Virginia and Texas. My ten-year career has enabled me to help students from all backgrounds navigate the college admission process, and gain admission to schools both domestically and abroad. I hold a master's degree in Counseling from The Johns Hopkins University and stand ready to work with students in person or via Skype, Face Time, or e-mail.

Phonics

I taught kindergarten and first grade before becoming a counselor, and used the phonics-based Distar program. I used the program to teach my own children to read.

Proofreading

I have a background in writing and editing, as I was a journalism major in college and a reading teacher before I became a counselor. Currently, I am an editor for a college preparation portal online. I write new articles and edit older articles to ensure they are appropriate in both construction and content.

SAT Reading

I have been qualified by WyzAnt to aid students in both SAT Reading and Writing. I have experience working with kids in groups and individually.

Study Skills

I've taught students at all levels study skills through my work as a school counselor. I have conducted small groups and led individual counseling sessions, teaching students at all levels to organize, focus, and achieve success. We can work together toward a targeted goal - getting a higher grade in one particular class - or on developing general study skills.
