About Crista

I am an experienced, certified English teacher for grades K-12 and would love to help your child improve his/her reading comprehension, writing, grammar, vocabulary, study, and overall communication skills. I have taught multiple English, Journalism, and Marketing classes and have served in admissions and marketing roles in a private high school for the past seven years. I have my Master's Degree in Teaching from Fairleigh Dickinson University, as well as Bachelor's degrees in both English and Communications from Boston College. I am also a mother of three, so I understand the challenges and stresses our children face in the school environment today. My primary experience is teaching high school students, but I also hold my teaching certification in Elementary Education. Prior to teaching, I worked in the corporate sector for ten years. Thus, I can help your child learn the skills he/she will need to succeed in the classroom, as well as in the workplace.

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 Certified Teacher in Elementary Education in the state of NJ. I also have my Master's Degree in Teaching. I have also volunteered as a CCD teacher for students in grades 3-5. I also have young children so I know what they learn in school and when.

Marketing

One of my majors in college was Communications. I worked at a Public Relations firm for 2 years. Most recently, I was Assistant Director of Print Communications at a private high school, where I wrote all of the school's marketing materials and placed all of their print, online, and cable TV advertisements. I also developed the school's Introduction to Marketing course and taught the class.
