About Christina

I have 25 years of experience as a professional business writer, and I have mentored many people in writing. I love to teach others how to write well, in a style that is clear and consistent, using good grammar and punctuation, and with a logical flow of ideas. I also believe it is important for each student to honor their own personal style of expression. As a business writer, one of my main tasks has been to teach effective writing skills to younger professionals, and it has always given me great pleasure to mentor young people in developing their own writing abilities.

I also have a Master's degree in Biology, and as a Research Associate I mentored graduate and undergraduate students in science and laboratory techniques. During my business writing career, I worked with many scientists in conservation nonprofits, and I have extensive experience translating complicated scientific concepts into language that is interesting, engaging, and easily understandable. This experience has given me the skill of understanding and comprehending all kinds of information, and it allows me to teach reading and comprehension to others. I am also a life coach, and this work gives me experience working one-on-one with people to overcome obstacles through positive thinking, and to achieve their personal goals. I have written my first book, which is for young people and adults, and I am now in the process of publishing it.

I have a passion for the natural world, and for the way biological systems work at all levels, from the biochemical reactions in our bodies to the vast ecological processes in nature. I have worked in a research lab, published in scientific publications as part of a research team, and have written about scientific findings for much of my career.

I love to teach others how to read and write. I am a professional writer, an author, and I love to teach the use of correct English to others. I believe that good communication skills are essential in all walks of life, and reading, writing and comprehension skills are essential abilities that children, teens and young adults must have to succeed in today's fast-paced, global world. My command of the English language is superior -- for instance, I scored in the 99th percentile in my GMAT English scores.

I will be pleased to meet with you in your home for an initial consultation. I am willing to travel to your home or other location for tutoring sessions, and I do ask for 24-hour notice of cancellation. I can be flexible with my schedule, to either reschedule sessions or to offer make-up classes. Thank you for contacting me. I look forward to helping you succeed in your studies!

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.

Reading

In my professional work in the business world, I have worked with many adults in helping them to understand written instructions in business communications, and to use words and language to communicate clearly. This kind of mentoring work has been the most gratifying part of my professional life. Today, I have excellent skills in mentoring adults, as a coach and spiritual counselor. This combination of my professional experience in mentoring adults, and my coaching talents and abilities, are my greatest strength. My own reading abilities are very advanced. I scored in the top 1% of all students in reading comprehension and ability in the GMAT standardized test for entrance into graduate school.
