About Christina

I tutor full-time, tutoring is all I do because I love it so much! I started my own company in 2015. I have tons of resources that I use in tutoring - old exams, worksheets, textbooks and workbooks. I have taught at University of Kentucky and Georgetown College and have many contacts in the area. I love teaching and tutoring and helping students understand chemistry and statistics. Organic chemistry is one of my favorite subjects - I excel at synthesis and mechanisms which are typical exam questions.

I have tutored and taught chemistry at the high school and college level for many years. I have a PhD in chemistry education and feel very comfortable with chemistry at the high school level and any freshmen or introductory class in college. I am very familiar with UK's chemistry professors and classes including the online chemistry homework system including Mastering Chemistry, Sapling, Wiley Plus, and ACE Organic. I have tutored nursing chemistry, all of the freshmen chemistry sequence, and organic chemistry. I know where students tend to get stuck and can help you consistently solve problems and do well in your class. I have helped students prepare for the AP chemistry exam and successfully pass!

I have tutored students from middle school age to college level and graduate level. My students have been from several local high schools, Centre College, Transylvania U., Morehead State, Georgetown College, and University of Kentucky. Most of my students are pre-professional students - premed, pre-vet, pre-pharm, etc. Many of my students end up with a B or A in the class, even after having failed the first exam!

I am getting an MPH in Biostatistics and have taken several graduate classes in statistics. I am proficient in SPSS.

I have helped several students working on their masters or Ph.D. dissertations with statistics, research design, literature review, orals preparation, etc. My students have been from a variety of fields. Having gone through a Ph.D. program as well as the fact that my husband has been a professor for over 20 years graduating many masters and Ph.D. students, I know what it takes to get through a graduate program successfully.

I have successfully homeschooled my own children - my oldest child was homeschooled from 2nd grade through high school and is now on the Dean's List in college majoring in chemistry and math - he has also gone on to start tutoring others!

I have an office close to the university where I usually tutor students - it has free parking, internet, and is quiet! If you prefer another location, let me know. My schedule is flexible. I also offer online tutoring. I may ask that you send some examples from your course ahead of time so I can be fully prepared for our lesson.

I really enjoy the one-on-one interaction with students and think it provides a great framework for learning. I promise to be punctual as well as ready for our lesson. My goal is that at the end of the lesson, you walk away feeling that you got your money's worth and feel more confident in your coursework. Please contact me today to see if I can help you succeed in your goals!

Looking forward to hearing from you!
