About Christine

Hello!

Thank you for taking a moment to learn more about me as a potential tutor for yourself or someone you know.

Background: As a certified educator, what I would like you to know is that I hold (3) degrees (B.A., M.B.A., and M.S.) as well as have been through a rigorous process in becoming a state certified teacher (Positive test scores in subject matter, teaching, and basic studies, background check, and a thorough examination of transcripts). In addition to credentials, next, consider experience. My experience includes three years of experience working with children in a primary school (K-8) as an Academic Intervention Teacher who provided support in Math, Reading, and Language for students not working on grade levels as indicated by IEP, standardized testing, and/or teacher referral.

In addition, I have four plus years of teaching experience working at the high school and college levels teaching business courses (Entrepreneurship, Management, Marketing, Leadership, Human Resource Management, Operations, Consumer Psychology, Business Ethics, and Public Relations). Writing solid papers according to APA or MLA writing styles is a major component of each course at the undergraduate level and an area I have great experience with. Finally, one of my advanced degrees is in Instructional Design and Technology and I have been designing and facilitating online instruction for the last four years. All of this enables me to design and facilitate student-centered tutoring sessions that align with your student's learning needs.

Philosophy: I believe in and operate from a "student-centered" approach, which means that my first order of business is to identify a student's potential strengths and weaknesses and then to create strategies that will enable the student to build on their strengths in order to facilitate progress in any areas of difficulty.

Mission: In operating from a student-centered approach, tutoring services will be provided based upon a need analysis (strength/weakness) and designed with an individual student's learning preference in mind. Tutoring services will be implemented from a goal driven perspective (overall supportive, test-oriented, and/or reinforcement of a specific target area) and facilitated with patience and caring professionalism to enhance student progress!

Additional Services: Corporate Training and HR Consulting

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.

Business

I earned a Master's of Business Administration Degree. I have worked as a College Instructor teaching various business courses (4 years).

Marketing

I earned a Master's of Business Administration degree.

I have four years of experience as an Instructor designing and teaching courses in Marketing at the undergraduate levels.

I have NYS Teacher Certification in Business and Marketing (which means I had to take content specific exams to prove I have the subject matter expertise).

I have three years of experience in sales and marketing in the insurance industry and as an administrator in an admissions.

Study Skills

In working as an Academic Intervention teacher for 4 years, part of my job was to assist students not working to grade level according to standardized testing. Some students were classified with an IEP while others were referred by their teachers as "struggling" in one particular area or another. Many students required additional time for test taking.

I then designed and facilitated "study skills" sessions outlining strategies for test taking, time management, writing essays and research papers (outlining), etc. These sessions were founded in (instructional design (I've earned a M.S. in Instructional Design) strategies based upon Bloom's Taxonomy- repetition, mnemonics, visual cues, information organization (graphic organizers, calendars, etc.).

Part of Academic Intervention is "Study Skills" as many students lack confidence, planning and organizational skills, and the knowledge needed to convey what they need help with. Through a needs' assessment one can identify patterns in order to develop study strategies, i.e. if one needs assistance with test taking; they probably do well with homework and in class activities but trends indicate low test scores. The study strategies for test taking can include "mock tests" (timed), breathing exercises, using scrap paper to write down formulas and processes, figuring out how many minutes one has for each question and using a timer for pacing (practice testing), etc.

I hope this better conveys my knowledge, experience, and expertise with study skills.
