About Christa

Hello and welcome!

My name is Christa and I'm a recent college graduate originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I attended Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on the Diversity Leadership Scholarship -- a full-tuition scholarship from the college based on an essay and an interview -- for my Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing and Business Administration. I'm now in New York interning with and pursuing a career in publishing.

Currently, my schedule is in flux, but I'm generally available weekends and some weeknights. Please take into account where we will be meeting for the sessions when looking at times -- I do use public transportation and will have to work around that.

Previously, I worked at CJ Banks as a Personal Shopper; Wal-Mart as an Electronics Sales Associate; Simms Library at Albuquerque Academy as a Library Assistant; and various positions through the temp office agency, OfficeTeam, where I did everything from reception work to call centers and library work.

I participated in the College Scholars Honors Program and made Dean's List at Coe College and I graduated Cum Laude from my high school, Albuquerque Academy, Class of 2011. I received special letters of recognition from many departments at Albuquerque Academy -- including Spanish, English, Mathematics, Science, and History. I was also the founder and leader of my high school's slam poetry club, where I wrote poetry and then performed and competed with it on stage, as well as judging competitions of which I was not a part. I was on staff as Intern and Poetry Editor of a Christian horror publication titled "The Midnight Diner," and as a manuscript reader and co-fiction editor for "The Coe Review." I was co-text editor of my high school's literary magazine, as well.

I look forward to hearing from you and thanks for stopping by!

Coverage is timely — Christa has been working with my niece for 3 sessions now, and I can tell that my niece is loosening up and working with more ease. The subject matter they are covering is what she really was in need of from day one. She is a great, patient tutor. Too bad she isn't doing it forever. ...
