Hi there, I'm Christina! I have a B.S. in Mathematics from Spelman College and extensive graduate-level pedagogical coursework from SUNY Empire State College and Western Governors University, including that pertaining to child & adolescent development, secondary math instruction, and teaching students with special needs.
Most importantly, I have been working with young people for over 20 years in mentoring, tutoring, and teaching capacities, including 6 years as a high school classroom math teacher. I have been blessed to help countless students overcome their challenges with math and get to a place where they could persevere through a variety of problems and finally achieve success in their math class, from understanding the material to making incredible gains on their End-of-Course state exams.
My students tell me I'm able to help them be calm so they can focus more on learning, and less on performing. They love the way I break the concepts and material down for them so that they finally and truly understand.
One past student said, "I hated math, but she helped me to overcome my fear of it. I'd recommend her to anyone. She's kind, intelligent, patient, so helpful, and just a great person with a gift for teaching."
Another said, "She was able to help me with math at the point when I was ready to give up...Along with her making it fun and understandable...If I had any troubles with a certain math problem she would be the first person I go to. She is a kind caring woman and has patience with everything. She doesn't give up and is very determined to make sure her students understand the work."
Teaching and tutoring is my passion, and my ultimate goal is to empower students all over the world to succeed by helping them overcome their struggles and anxiety in one of their toughest academic areas, math!
