My undergraduate degrees were in Psychology and Biological Sciences. I have graduate level coursework in Mass Communication majoring in Communication as well as two years of medical school. I have a doctorate in Dentistry and practiced as a general dentist in Illinois for 18 years before retiring.
I have been a college instructor in Anatomy, Physiology, General Biology, Nutrition and Community Health for the past seven years, teaching a diverse group of students taking biology as an elective as well as those entering the various health fields .
My formal education focused on all the various subjects of basic and advanced biological science but I have very strong interests in psychology, literature, communication and management. I have extensive and intensive experience in reading and writing technical and creative papers.
My philosophy of teaching is to first discover your baseline level and build on your strengths and abilities through methodical study, review, testing and self discovery. If you feel successful in discovering something new on your own, it is more memorable and motivating than giving you the answers.
I think it is also very important to provide positive feedback to the student every step of the way. There is nothing more rewarding than helping you discover your potential and learn to conquer challenges on your own, after proper training and feedback.

Cristina T. was an excellent tutor. I requested her services for an Anatomy and Physiology II class. During our sessions, Cristina did a wonderful job of explaining material (very knowledgeable), and quizzing me to help commit the information I was learning to my memory. After being tutored by Cristina, my grade raised by an entire letter! She is dependable and kind; I strongly recommend her.
Cristina T. is a great tutor, I would recommend her to everyone. She is always on time, she can easily reach by phone or email.
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.
