**CREDENTIALS**

I have always been a lover of mathematics and languages, and have 7+ years of experience tutoring and mentoring elementary, middle school, high school, college, and adult students in New York City and around the country.

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 advanced proficiency in the language. I also speak Spanish at home as it was my first language.

Regents

Having tutored many students over the past 6 years, I have gained much experience in preparing students for their math Regents exams. 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.

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

Patient Tutor

Worked with me through my Algebra 1 Regents Exam. She provided me with great material to work with, was flexible for sessions, and helped me thoroughly understand the material.

Amara, 49 lessons with Christine

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

Knowlegable and patient tutor

Christine was very knowledgeable about the Geometry and worked excellent with my son. She has patience and gives praise to the student. I would recommend her highly for anyone. Great to work with her. Looking forward to next session. You've got the best here with her!

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much for your review, Mary! I enjoy working with you and your son. :)

Very pleasant and great at tutoring

Would highly recommend Christine. My son was preparing for a mid term geometry test. She came on time, was pleasant and was able to help my son review for the test.

Carol, 2 lessons with Christine

Christine is a life saver!

My daughter would not be able to get thru Geometry without Christine. My daughter was very frustrated and confused before she started getting tutored from Christine. Now she understands her lessons and is getting wonderful grades on her tests and homework assignments. My daughter looks forward to every session

Gina, 16 lessons with Christine

Dedicated and Patient Tutor

Christine works so well with my son. She is always open to new strategies and goes the extra mile to ensure that she is bringing her all to her tutoring sessions.

Caryn , 11 lessons with Christine

Awesome individual

Christine is very sweet, she caring, she's understanding and always willing to help. She never leaves without having to answer all of my daughter's questions. Christine covers what needs to be covered. And never leaves without making sure my daughter fully understood the material. Christine is awesome and very supportive. My daughter doesn't do well with strangers, however as opened up and allowed Christine into her circle.
