Bio

Dear Students,

I would like to take a brief moment to introduce myself. My name is Christina and I am a highly energetic learning-lover. I have lived in or traveled to Germany, Dominican Republic, Japan, Mexico, Haiti, Jamaica, and India.

I take a radical approach to learning. I firmly believe that if you can connect what you are learning about to something you absolutely love, you will begin to appreciate the process of learning. For example, I was the type of student who thought history...

Dear Students,

I would like to take a brief moment to introduce myself. My name is Christina and I am a highly energetic learning-lover. I have lived in or traveled to Germany, Dominican Republic, Japan, Mexico, Haiti, Jamaica, and India.

I take a radical approach to learning. I firmly believe that if you can connect what you are learning about to something you absolutely love, you will begin to appreciate the process of learning. For example, I was the type of student who thought history was boring. That is, until my professor explained how crossing an international border started a war, and people's homes and lives were never the same. I loved learning about people, how they work, think, and how I can help them live better. All of a sudden history was very important to me.

I have my Associates Degree in Arts, and my Bachelor and Master's Degrees in Social Work. In an experiential time, I also went to Law School for a year and half. I am certified in Trauma Studies and have worked with children, young adults, and families in a community setting for 7 years.

How do I tutor? Let's be honest, lecture is not my style. Here's how I prefer to tutor. We begin by going over the assignment, review the information, practice the model/questions, and then you teach it to me. I have found this model to be extremely successful.

Still not sure? Think of it this way.

Imagine you have to prepare for a speech. We discuss the assignment, you decide on a topic, we do effective research, review the information, format an outline, you practice the speech, and then I'll ask question. The goal of my tutoring sessions is not that you can get an A on a multiple choice exam. I want you to know the information and be able to explain it. Above that, I want you to have all the necessary skills to learn effectively.

I look forward to meeting you, tutoring you, and watching you love learning!

Excellent tutor!

Christina was very easy to work with and helped me break down different case studies to help me prepare for my licensing exam. She went out of her way to offer me many different online tools and resources I could use to help me prepare. My overall experience with Christina is that she was flexible, knowledgeable, and patient when I needed help understanding a concept.

Resourceful tutor

Christina offers a fast response on messages / assignments, is very knowledgeable and resourceful. She turned an editor's headache into a seamless process and I would definitely recommend her services to other Master's level students.

Great tutor...very flexible

I would highly recommend Christina as a tutor for ASL. My son was really struggling and she was able to simplify the information and help him better understand the signs. She was also very flexible and drove a significant distance to meet with him. Her friendly, laid back personality made him feel very comfortable.
