About Christina

I have taught at University of Kentucky and Georgetown College. I love teaching and tutoring and helping students understand chemistry. Organic chemistry is one of my favorite subjects.

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 Mastering Chemistry homework system and Sapling. 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.

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 at a University majoring in chemistry.

I can tutor you at a local library or coffee shop or the UK library. My schedule is flexible. I also offer online tutoring.

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 prepared for our lesson.

Looking forward to hearing from 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.

Biostatistics

I took several graduate classes in Statistics for my Ph.D. in chemistry and I am currently an MPH student in Biostatistics. I have completed 21 hours for my MPH including Biostats II (advanced biostatistics), Clinical Trials, Epidemiology and Advanced Epidemiology, and SAS and Database Programming.

Chemistry

I have a bachelor's degree in chemistry. I have taken freshmen chemistry, organic chemistry, quantitative analysis, physical chemistry, and instrumental analysis. My PhD in chemistry involved taking graduate chemistry courses in organic chemistry, biochemistry, synthesis, mechanisms, as well as spectroscopy. I also taught both general chemistry labs and organic labs at the university level. I was an instructor for general chemistry as well.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel extensively in my work analyzing data. I am fairly proficient in Pivot Tables as well as statistical analysis using Excel.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Ph.D. in chemistry - I took undergraduate organic chemistry to get my bachelor's degree in chemistry. I also took several graduate classes in organic chemistry as well as teaching organic lab while I was a graduate student.

SPSS

I have used SPSS extensively in my graduate work to analyze educational data as well as biostatistical data. I have used several versions of SPSS and am fairly proficient in performing basic and intermediate statistical analysis.

Statistics

I am working towards my MPH in biostatistics. I can use both SPSS and SAS. I have had several graduate courses in statistics including basic statistics, ANOVA, SAS programming, and biostatistics II.
