About Cristl


Bio

Hello! I'm a patient and dedicated tutor who 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 at my home, either in person or online; and I have a pet bunny, which is mentioned in case of allergies.

Hello! I'm a patient and dedicated tutor who 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 at my home, either in person or online; and I have a pet bunny, which is 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.

Subjects

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Having tutored in the Wake County area for over 10 years, I am familiar with the WCPSS math curriculum. When the Common Core standards came on the scene in 2012, I had to quickly adopt the new material being taught. I am now well versed in Common Core Math, levels 1, 2 and 3, which is a combination of Algebra 1 & 2, geometry, and discrete math. I also tutor all of the honors classes mentioned above.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is now combined with the Common Core standards, which is composed of statistics, probability and discrete math. I took Population Statistics in college, a required course for my biology major, which helped equip me for tutoring the Common Core topics.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Chemistry was my favorite subject in college. I have real life experience from working in several labs, so I can teach a student the "why" and not just the "how", which makes a topic more tangible and easier to learn.
Geometry,

Geometry

I enjoy helping students who have trouble visualizing how to solve problems, or where to start when trying to solve a proof. Often times a diagram might have too many lines for a student to comprehend what they are looking at. I can help them to dissect a problem into smaller, easier parts, until the whole puzzle is put together and be able to see the bigger picture.
Precalculus

Precalculus

Precalculus was not an offered subject when I was attending school way back when. After Algebra 2, you took trigonometry and then calculus. Times have changed, so I took two semesters of online precalculus classes (parts 1 & 2) at BYU, and got high A's in both courses. I have experience tutoring high school precalculus and have worked with students from Wake Tech.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry

I tutor all levels of trigonometry from basic right triangle trig, which is taught in middle school, to the more advanced level found in precalculus classes. I can help students solve trig identities (which can be like trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle without a picture), trig equations, navigation word problems, and more!

Great for my son's final exam prep

Very patient, responsive to email and posted video sessions immediately after. My son was very pleased. She covered many concepts that were necessary for the chemistry exam.

Ken , 2 lessons with Cristl

Knowledgeable and patient

My son had his first lesson with Cristl today, it went really well. My son was engaged throughout the whole one hour session which doesn’t happen all that often. We hope to continue with her service.

Anna, 2 lessons with Cristl

Excellent!

Cristl is fantastic. She broke down the material and made it very easy understand. When he had the "ah - ha" I knew everything was going to be OK! Thanks Cristl!

Charles, 4 lessons with Cristl

5 stars!

Cristl was a great tutor and very patient! She really helped me better understand some Algebra 1 problems I was struggling with.

Mia, 4 lessons with Cristl

Immediate Response from Cristl, very helpful!

She helped my high school son tremendously & was very patient with the startup delay (we had connectivity issues). Very knowledgeable about trigonometry & other related math as well. Would highly recommend her.

Ms Cristi

A great experience! Wonderful communicator and a deep knowledge of the subject. We have found a treasure. Will be her client forever. We love Miss Christy...you'll never find better.

Richard, 27 lessons with Cristl

Knowledgeable, patient, and friendly!

Today Cristl taught me how to transform various parent functions using a table, and how to determine what transformations are taking place just by looking at the function (vertical and horizontal shifts, vertical and horizontal stretch or shrink, and reflections over the x-axis or y-axis). She was extremely patient when I had technical issues and when I had questions about the topic. Her lessons and reassurance gave me a newfound confidence (two hours ago I almost dropped out) and I feel like I can get the hang of this! Thank you, Cristl!!! :)

Brittany, 1 lesson with Cristl

Amazing!!

Cristl really helped our daughter with high school Math 2 . . proofing and other tricky problems that we can't explain to her. Very patient and explained things well. We weren't sure about an online session, but it went well and was easy to navigate and use.
