My lifelong passion for math and science includes a desire to share my ability and interest with others. My goal is to make these subjects understandable and interesting so the lives of those learning are enhanced. I hold a current Michigan Professional Teaching Certificate in Math, Physics, and Chemistry and have five years of classroom experience and several years of experience tutoring. I have a knack for relating to the learner, with an ability to identify how a person learns, where they are struggling, and can determine creative ways of working with each unique learner to gain success.

In addition to undergraduate and graduate coursework in education, I also I have bachelors and masters degrees with experience in Engineering giving me insight into how these subjects are used in the real world. In several of my engineering jobs I served as a technical instructor, mentor, and coach. I have 23 years of experience as a swim instructor, and am also am a lifeguard instructor and water aerobics instructor. As you can see, I love helping others learn. I am eager to use my perceptive and understanding personality along with my deep and strong math and science capability to help you reach goals. Let's work together so you can feel the motivating feelings of success.

My instructional math and science credentials are strong. My capability far exceeds math and science subjects. I tutored for a year at Sylvan for 1st grade through college level Advanced Algebra. I privately tutored three adults in Algebra and Advanced Algebra equipping them for successful course completion and graduation. I privately tutored a high school senior for one month allowing that student to learn a full semester of math in that time and graduate on time.

Very patient and flexible tutor!

Christina tutors 2 of my kids in math and both come home with their homework finished and a better understanding of the lesson. She even allows my high schooler to text her pictures of the homework so Christina is always well prepared before their lesson. As someone who has used two different tutors from Wyzant I can confidently say that Christina is who we will stick with.
