About Christine

I was an elementary school teacher for 33 years. I taught both 2nd and 3rd grades. My goal was to design lessons that were relevant and interesting. I believe in engaging students with hands on activities. I used creative drama in my reading lessons, math games to learn facts, and lots of writing across the curriculum. I have a strong background in children's literature and used that in helping the students create their own stories. I currently present Science of Energy classes for middle school students and I lead trail walks at the Audubon Sanctuary. I was an elementary school teacher for 33 years.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught grades 2 and 3 (all subjects) for 35 years. I was a math consultant for the Everyday Math Company and presented Math workshops for teachers. I was a member of the Whole Language Teachers' Association and presented Literature based workshops for teachers. I now work for an Energy Company presenting Science activities for students.

Elementary Math

I was an elementary teacher for 35 years. I taught Math at the 2nd to 4th grade level. I was an Everyday Math curriculum trainer for 6 years. I believe that students need to develop number sense as a basis for understanding more difficult math concepts.

Elementary Science

I was an elementary teacher for grades 2 and 3 for 35 years. Since I retired I have been working for Cape Light Compact doing science lessons on energy for grades 4-6. I also worked on a Science curriculum for the Chatham Marconi center for grades 1-5.

Reading

I was an elementary teacher for grades 2 and 3 for 35 years. I am certified as a Reading Specialist as well. I used a literature based program in my classroom and I am trained in DIBELS.
