Knowledgeable and Patient Geometry Tutor

Christine was a hit with my high-school freshman who needed extra assistance with her Honors Geometry course. My student appreciated that Christine taught her problem-solving techniques she hadn't learned in school and then allowed time for her to work through the problem herself. We would highly recommend Christine.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Christine helped me get a B on a math test I thought for sure I'd fail. She helped me open up and learn even when I was anxious about the session with her. I highly recommend

Katelyn, 1 lesson with Christine

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Christine was very knowledgeable about college Calculus I. We went over everything I learned during the semester. I would highly recommend Christine! I scored a 99/100 on my final! She is very patient and took time to ask if I had questions and making sure I was understanding the material. She is very easy to get along with, and she made me feel very comfortable. I am looking forward to future session with Christine!

Went above and beyond

Christine went above and beyond to accomodate my daughter on very short notice and to work around our tight schedule. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in the are of Geometry.

Julia, 26 lessons with Christine

Great lesson with 7th grade math

Well done, engaging and simplified word problems for my so. He took notes from the lesson and filed them on the computer to use again. He did that on his own- because he thought they were so helpful.

Leslie, 9 lessons with Christine

Amazing and patient tutor

Christine is wonderful! She was extremely patient and knowledgeable. My daughter has learned various strategies to prepare her for the Regents. I highly recommend her for tutoring.

Good Tutor

She dug right into the lessons with my daughter and was very calm and patient with her, and knew how to get her to understand the problems. My daughter had been pretty good at math through 4th grade but was falling back in 5th.

Hugh, 7 lessons with Christine

Patient, kind and very knowledgeable!

Christine and my daughter worked on geometry proofs and they made solid progress in their first hour together. She jumped right into the problems and was clear in her explanation of each one. We will definitely ask for her help again!

Marcia, 2 lessons with Christine
