About Cristl

Hello! I'm a caring tutor who is extremely patient and loves working with middle and high school students and adult learners who haven't been in school for years. I was a volunteer tutor for many years working with children and slow-learning adults. That experience helped to hone my skills in targeting problem areas and finding new ways to present material. My tutoring practice is full-time at my home or on-line between the hours of 10am-9pm, seven days per week; and I have a pet bunny, mentioned in case of allergies.

Some of my background: I graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor in Biology, and then went onto my dream job working at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics. While there, I attended graduate classes in Environmental Chemistry. I then moved to Durham, NC and worked at Duke University Medical Center in the Department of Molecular Mycology. I have authored several publications in top-tiered scientific journals.

When I left the lab in 2005, I attended the American College of Health Sciences where I earned a degree in holistic health and aromatherapy. Please read my blog on aromatherapy and its use for people with ADD/ADHD to help calm them and focus better.

I look forward to helping you or your child.

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.

I can help with high school chemistry, but not honors or AP chemistry.

Accomplished what others could not — Cristl had helped my HS junior turn his failing math grade into an impressive B. He had struggled in math for years, and although he had been tutored in the past, his grades were barely passing. Cristl was able help him understand complex material in a way which was easier for him to understand than how he was being taught at school. It was refreshing to see him gaining confidence as his lessons p ...
