About Christina


Bio

All students can learn!

I currently hold a teaching License in Kansas, as well as North Carolina. I have been teaching for over 15 years, in special education, English, Math, Social Studies and Science. While I have primarily worked with grades 5 through 12, I am happy to work with lower grades!

I do not mind traveling, if the situation requires it, and prefer to work in an environment with access to plenty of reference material, such as a public library.

I currently hold a teaching License in Kansas, as well as North Carolina. I have been teaching for over 15 years, in special education, English, Math, Social Studies and Science. While I have primarily worked with grades 5 through 12, I am happy to work with lower grades!

I do not mind traveling, if the situation requires it, and prefer to work in an environment with access to plenty of reference material, such as a public library.

I have acquired teaching material ranging from grades K to 12 in all subjects, and would not need any additional materials provided, except for student homework, if necessary.

My passion for teaching and learning shine through!

Friendly and approachable!

Christina is working with both of my teenage sons on Algebra. She offered a different approach than what they were being taught in school; which is exactly what they needed; to see it from another angle. My youngest has Aspergers and she is very understanding and knows how to work with his very literal perspective. We saw improvement after just one session! Both boys enjoy their fun, casual study sessions with Christina.

Excellent

My daughter's first class with Christina was an excellent experience... My daughter really enjoyed the class. We are planning more regular classes with Christina.

Mamalay, 17 lessons with Christina

Nice and well informed tutor on the ACT.

We have not gone in depth yet because we have only met once for an hour. When given the time I'm confident Christina will accomplish what I'm looking for.

Luke, 9 lessons with Christina

Off to a great start!!!

My granddaughter has connected with Christina and her teaching method. After taking a partial ACT test, she said she felt confident. She is off to a good start!

Wonderful Tutor - So happy with her instruction.

10/27/2014 This was my daughter's 3rd lesson with Christina and she is feeling much more confident in her math lessons and completing her homework. We are so fortunate that Christina was able to take my daughter on and be her tutor as she had a super busy schedule already. My daughter is feeling better about college algebra, and I only hope that her confidence continues. Thank you Christina!!! 12/01/2014 After finally deciding to switch gears and focus on Math instruction in preparation for ACT and the SAT (Dec.6) I can only say how I wish we started this sooner. Math has been a constant struggle this year, and after we were unable to drop this course it was mutually decided to place my daughter's energy elsewhere. Christina has been wonderful in her instruction and my daughter understands and responds well to her. I am so glad we found her and even more so that she was willing to take another student on. We are going to continue with the instruction till semesters end, extending our original contract by a few more lessons as the routine and study sessions work well for my daughter. I only wish we could continue it longer. Thank you so much Christina. We appreciate you very much.

Super!

Currently Christina is working with our son to help improve his ACT test scores. She has been doing a great job working with our schedules and with the weather. She works with him from where he is and not on any preconceived ideas. I appreciate her willingness to work with him and start where he is and help him learn what he needs to so he can get where he wants to be.

Great Tutor for Our Middle Schooler!

Our 7th grader works extremely hard and is a great student; however, was having some trouble with Algebra I. Christina was able to connect with her right away! She is patient and has a wonderful, positive attitude that makes lessons enjoyable. Our 7th grader's understanding of the material has increased and the test scores have come up dramatically in just a few weeks of tutoring. As an added bonus, Christina has been able to help with Language Arts. I would highly recommend Christina!

Sarah, 22 lessons with Christina

Great match for my two boys!

We picked Christina for a few reasons: her experience with ADHD and her expressed enthusiasm for helping kids achieve their goals. She is clever and has quickly gained a level of comfort with our two sons.

Rachelle, 35 lessons with Christina
