About Christina

Dear Potential Student,

Thank you for taking the time to review my profile. Even though I am new to WyzAnt, I have been a successful GED instructor for the last 7 years teaching at my local community college in Illinois. I love teaching my students and helping them pass the latest official GED test which is valid in all 50 states.

I have taught all subjects of the official GED Test, which includes: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. I am also able to teach and administer the U. S. Constitution exam which is required for Illinois residents only.

I will give you instruction on the GED subject material, processes, study skills, and hints--taking the fear out of the unknown for all my students. Often, the biggest hurdle to passing the GED is fear. If you are a hard-working student, I can take fear out of the equation and walk you through the steps that you need to take to be a successful graduate. I will also recommend appropriate study materials, including the TI-30XS Multi view Calculator.

Have you been waiting to finish that GED for a while now, but just didn't know how to do it? TODAY is the best day to get started. I provide that human interaction that many of us need, instead of just doing it on our own. In the long run, it will probably save you a lot of time as well. I'm available on Skype.

Please know that all formal exams, except the U. S. Constitution are computerized and must be taken at a GED approved testing facility. The costs for the official tests are not included in my fee and must be processed on your own.

Much of the current GED Test involves understand algebra. You will be given the formulas, but you must know how to use them. Some of the skills you will be tested on are linear equations, slope, integers, Pythagorean theorem, scientific notation, inequalities, exponents and more.

I have personally written curriculum for the State of IL for the Health Bridge Math program and have written other Adult Education curriculum for my college that included math and writing. On the side, I have also written two books on health.

More importantly, I have helped many pass the writing portion of the GED Test. This writing test is included in the Reading Through Language Arts test. There are two parts to this test: one on grammar and the other writing an essay from a prompt.

As mentioned earlier, I have been an educator all of my life, but the last 7 years I have taught in the Adult Education department at my college teaching GED. I enjoy what I do and love seeing students reach their goals so they can move forward.

Many years ago, I taught 3rd grade (bilingual) and also middle school, but I must say that I really enjoy teaching adults. I like to encourage them to the end. I think that many of us don't realize our potential, so I like to come along side and show my students how really easy learning is.

Many of my students currently have jobs, but just never got that GED for one reason or another. Some just want to get it for themselves, just to say that they have it or maybe to show their children that they did it. Whatever motivates you, I would love to help you reach this very important goal. Please consider me as your tutor. Thank you.

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'm actually certified K-9 since 2002 in the State of IL. I also have ESL k-9, and Spanish 5-8 certification. I've been teaching for seven years at the College of Lake County in the Adult Ed. department teaching GED, which also requires teaching Study Skills. I have written curriculum specifically on study skills and incorporating them into a welding program.

Writing

I've written and published two books currently available on Amazon in the Healthy Living category under a pen name. I have also written curriculum for my college and for the State of IL. I can disclose specifics if you are interested in my help.
