About Christie

Hello. I have 13 years of experience in tutoring reading, writing, grammar, and essay writing. I currently work as a teaching assistant with the NYC Department of Education. I work with students with special needs and with the general education population as well. I have worked with elementary school aged students to high school students. I have also worked as a writing peer tutor at LaGuardia College. I have also worked as an English tutor and an activities specialist for an out of school time program. My methods consist of easy to understand approaches. I make sure that the student understands and comprehends the lesson by asking a series of questions related to the lesson. In essay writing, I will go over the steps that one needs in order to convey an essay that stands out to readers. (ex. Introduction, body, conclusion) In reading comprehension I will go over every step that is involved in understanding a text. (ex. skimming a text, defining difficult to understand words). Hello. I have 13 years of experience in tutoring reading, writing, grammar, and essay writing. I currently work as a Read more

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.

Grammar

I am qualified to tutor in this specific subject because I have full command of grammar of the English language. I can read and write the English language fluently. I have also tutored grammar to school aged children as well as adults.

Proofreading

I am qualified to proofread because I currently work in a high school where I proofread student work on a daily basis. I have also proofread for other colleagues of mine. I am employed in a school and I proofread student work all the time as they prepare for state mandated ELA exams.

Reading

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I can read the English language very well. I can explain how to decode words and when to use a dictionary if needed. I read on a daily basis as my job in the school calls for it. I am part of a program at the school that is called "Drop Everything and Read" where I help many students foster reading skills.

Vocabulary

I have full command of the English vocabulary. I have peer tutored vocabulary skills at LaGuardia College and at the out of school time program where I was employed. I feel that I can convey it to learners no matter what learning level they are on.

Writing

I am qualified to tutor in this subject because I have (and still am) approached by colleagues with questions as to how some things should be written or phrased. I have tutored elementary school aged children to adults in college. I have written many essays in college and have achieved a high GPA because of my writing skills. I never had to take remedial writing courses. I advanced immediately into the Literature 1 and 2 classes at Touro College. One of my essays at LaGuardia Community College had been used as an example as it floated throughout the college for other students to look at.
