About Christina

I have had experience in high school being an SAT tutor for math and English for Kumon, and in college when I TA'd general biology lab and tutored students in biochemistry as a work study. My approach to tutoring is more one-on-one and visual rather than lecturing general information from textbooks. I come prepared with example problems that increase in difficulty and diagrams to help them grasp the lesson as I am also a visual learner.

I enjoy teaching because I feel fulfilled when my students finally understand how to approach a problem and get an answer correct on their own. Since I am more of a visual learner than one who can listen to lectures and memorize the facts, I want to incorporate that type of learning into my students' lessons. My goal is to make sure they understand the larger picture of the lesson before knowing how to dissect the details within it to approach a problem (which can be applied to math, english, and science lessons.)

I have received high scores on both the SAT math section and the GRE quantitative section, have taken Calculus and Differential Equations I & II, and have taken Physical Chemistry (which uses differential equations and linear algebra). I have tutored students in SAT math at Kumon.

I have experience studying for the Biology SAT subject test and AP Biology test (I scored a 5), have taken General Biology I & II, Genetics, Anatomy and Physiology, Biochemistry, Immunology, Protein Chemistry, Molecular Cell Biology, and other required classes for my major. I have TA'd for general biology lab three years after I had taken it and have tutored biochemistry students as a work study one year after I had taken it.

I have experience tutoring for SAT reading, SAT writing, and GRE verbal section. I have taken the AP English Literature exam and scored a 5.

I have a flexible schedule, so feel free to contact me with whatever you are comfortable with (location, times, etc)!

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.

Great Tutor!

Christina has been amazing. She's been helping me with Biochemistry. We meet every week for 2hrs and she is incredibly flexible when my schedule changes last minute! She does a great job of working through concepts with me and quizzing me on the material as we go so I know where to further focus my studying.
