About Christine

I am a 2012 college graduate from Middlebury College, an institution best known for its superb foreign language teaching. I graduated with a degree in Japanese Studies and even spent a semester studying abroad in Tokyo my junior year.

After graduation, I spent an additional 7 weeks at Middlebury College studying Portuguese through its intensive Summer Language School Program, leaving the program with an advanced proficiency in the language. I also speak Spanish at home as it was my first language.

I have always been a lover of mathematics and have had experience tutoring and mentoring New York City high school students in writing while I was in college.

I have a passion for learning and hope to spread that love of learning to others.

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.


I am very passionate about language learning and began learning Japanese in high school. Having studied Japanese Studies at Middlebury College, I have attained intermediate proficiency in the Japanese language. I spent a semester living in Tokyo in 2010.


I began learning the language in the fall of 2011 through an accelerated course at Middlebury College called "Portuguese for Spanish Speakers" (I am a native Spanish speaker). In the summer of 2012, I enrolled in Middlebury College's Portuguese Language School, through which I attained an advanced level of proficiency in the Portuguese language. I speak Brazilian Portuguese.


Having tutored many students over the past 3 years, I have gained much experience in preparing students for their math Regents exams, including the Common Core versions.

With my help, students who have taken and failed the Regents exams numerous times in the past finally passed. Additionally, students who started off with failing grades in their class were able to excel in class as well as on their Regents exam.
