About Christine

Hello. I am a veteran teacher. I am currently certified through the Department of Education in Lincoln. My teaching certificate is current. I have a Masters in Education in Reading/ESL. I am currently taking an on-line course to earn my TESOL Certificate. I only have my thesis to write and then I will be done.

I am a former elementary school teacher. I have been teaching post-secondary (college) students for the past 9 years. I have taught Composition I/II, Critical Thinking, and Pathways to Success (how to be successful as a college student). I have good relationships with my students and my students know that my goal for them is to be successful!

I have my Masters Endorsement in ESL. I am currently enrolled in an on-line course to earn my TESOL Certificate. I only have my thesis left to write and then I will have completed the course. I have years of experience teaching international students at the university level.

I look forward to meeting you!

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 am a current certified teacher through the State of Nebraska. My teaching certificate states I am eligible to teach K-8 (this my undergraduate degree). I also have my Early Childhood Endorsement, which states I can teach Pre-K-3.

Handwriting

I taught writing at the elementary school level. I am a former elementary school teacher, taught for 7 years. Handwriting, in our school, was integrated into the curriculum. I did teach a separate course on "writing."

Phonics

As a former elementary school teacher, I taught grammar and phonics, as part of the curriculum. I taught each subject on alternating days. It was direct instruction, where I stood at the overhead and students would complete their worksheets.

Public Speaking

I taught a public speaking course, Public Speaking 1650, to international students at a local university. I also was on the Debate Team in high school and have judged many debate/speech tournaments for local school districts.

Study Skills

I taught a "Pathways to Success" course at two universities. I used the book, "The Master Student" by Dave Ellis. On the pieces from that book that I taught was, "study skills." This section provided students with the skills they needed to become better studiers and better managers of their time, as well as how to become better test takers.
