About Christine


Bio

I am an incoming Indianapolis Teaching Fellow, and I currently work as a substitute teacher for Parallel Education Division. Prior to pursuing teaching, I worked as a system performance engineer for Cummins Inc. I was a college hire co-op conversion and was with the company in total for approximately two years. I left of my own accord because I have always had an affinity to education, and quarantine conditions made me realize that I did not feel fulfilled in what used to be my dream job....

I am an incoming Indianapolis Teaching Fellow, and I currently work as a substitute teacher for Parallel Education Division. Prior to pursuing teaching, I worked as a system performance engineer for Cummins Inc. I was a college hire co-op conversion and was with the company in total for approximately two years. I left of my own accord because I have always had an affinity to education, and quarantine conditions made me realize that I did not feel fulfilled in what used to be my dream job.

I have a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a B.A. in Chinese Language, Literature, and Culture from the University of Florida. I also completed an International Baccalaureate program in high school and was an AP Scholar and National Merit Finalist.

I was previously a tutor on Wyzant's platform when I started college which is where the old reviews on my profile are from. I paid my way through college, and so I picked up more structured jobs to maximize my time. Both before and after my stint on Wyzant's platform I worked in tutoring and educational roles. These experiences include working for Kumon Math & Reading Centers, as a supplemental app-based English instructor to Chinese native speakers, and as an undergraduate teaching assistant for an introductory computer problem solving course.

I am a second-generation Taiwanese American, and I come from a highly nomadic and dysfunctional family background. I believe this experience allows me to find a way to provide value to any student who wants to learn despite learning environments or unique challenges. (Bring it on virtual school, poor internet, and old computers!)

I prefer to support existing curriculum, but I can work with you to design a curriculum for your student if you are flexible to my inexperience in formal lesson planning. I will adjust my rates based on the quality of service I can provide.

Please do not hesitate to request an interview or ask any questions to see if I can support you or your student!

My parents are both native speakers of Mandarin from Taiwan, so I self-studied traditional Chinese at a young age. However, I took Chinese through public school where only simplified was allowed, and my degree program through the University of Florida had an emphasis on simplified Chinese. Therefore, I am able to tutor in both and also have a basic knowledge of regional accents and vocabulary.

Speech

Speech

I worked as a supplemental English as a Foreign Language instructor for native Chinese speakers where I utilized my academic background of Chinese language, literature, and culture to assist students in identifying weaknesses and common pitfalls in their speech. I also formally studied Spanish for two years and am still studying informally, so I may be able to assist more advanced individuals who are studying with Spanish as a native language.

Can't wait for the next lesson.

Christine, listens to the student's concerns and adapts the lesson to meet the needs of my child. She tailors the lesson to help my son to complete his assignments. She is helping build his self confidence to speak and practice Mandarin.

Good method to learn numbers

Christine reviewed the radicals and helped me say 2 digit and three digit numbers. We used these numbers to ask about age and birthdays. Also went over new characters. Thank u!
