About Christina

My name is Christina and I have a BS in Physics with a Minor in Psychology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I just moved to Durham and am trying to save money so that I can start my Masters in Physics at UNH. I will eventually go for my PhD relating to theoretical quantum physics and then work as a professor while doing independent research. Basically if you've ever seen The Big Bang Theory, it's Sheldon's job plus teaching.

I absolutely adore math, and love thinking of shortcuts and the most efficient, creative ways to solve problems. In middle school I won my regional MATHCOUNTS competition twice because of such pursuits, and it has instilled in me a love for standardized tests. I took the SAT 5 times, once a year starting in 7th grade. By 9th grade I had a math score of 770 and by 11th I had a reading score of 710. I received a 5/5 on the AP Calculus AB exam in 9th grade. Over a year ago I took the GRE and received a perfect score in math.

I have tutored students younger and older than myself at every stage of education, be it elementary, middle, high school, or being employed by RPI as a one-on-one tutor. I enjoy passing on my love of learning and am enthralled by the challenge of using creativity to explain concepts to each student in a new way specific to their interests and learning style.

I am so excited to tutor! Students leaving a session with me will have a new way to look at the concepts they were struggling with and will have a new found excitement for the subject matter. They will be more efficient at solving problems and have an improved mathematical memory. The money will then help me continue my education. It's a win-win! I can't wait to start.

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.

Thorough crashcourse

Great help in studying for the SAT Physics subject test. I started with only two weeks left before my test and still felt comfortable with all the the material (it was a light depth of most of general/classical physics). She also got me generally interested in physics and I've actually gone and picked up some books to check out some of the topics. So, if you have a lot of material you need to get
