About Cristiana

I was a teaching assistant at Lasell College for the head of the Applied Mathematics department. I have experience tutoring many different types of Mathematics students. I have tutored physics and math students at the college level and a high school level.

My primary dedication is always to my students. A student's goal is my goal, be it mastering a certain subject area or raising a letter grade. I always track a student's progress based on what he or she hopes to accomplish. One way I do this is by going over old tests, making sure a student is proficient in the problems that are correct and helping in the areas where confusion still exists.


My favorite part of teaching is when I am able to aid a student in grasping a challenging concept. I pride myself on using universal comparatives and tangible examples so that my students can understand even abstract principles in their own terms. In physics and mathematics alike, equations work for a reason. If the reasoning makes sense, my students can solve any problem and achieve whatever they set out to do.

To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable meeting space, I have a space for study sessions at the local public library. However, I am also happy to travel to another location if it is more convenient for the student.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you achieve success in your goals!

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.

Differential Equations

Differential Equations was one of the advanced subject areas I covered in my Applied Mathematics degree. I Also assisted my professor with a Differential Equations course, explaining subject matter to fellow students when they needed assistance. Differential Equations builds on an understanding of four different levels of Calculus, all of which I have assisted other students in. This course takes the Calculus knowledge base a step further and creates new ways of problem solving and critical thinking. There are techniques to solve certain equations which allow students to understand other similar problems.

Greek

My background in Greek comes mainly from my family. I grew up in a multilingual household, essentially learning Greek as I learned English. Both come equally natural to me. I also have experience tutoring friends and family members in the subject. For a while I was enrolled in Greek school and would help out friends that were struggling.
This language is not just a matter of memorization, and is not so incomprehensible as people often think. Greek is the immortal language of the sciences and is the origin of many English words. By demonstrating these similarities and by getting individuals to think Greek, I have helped students gain a stronger grasp of the language.
