About Christina

I am a Princeton University graduate with an A.B. with honors in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. I also attended Harvard's Health Careers Program and have been working as a teaching fellow at Harvard Extension School and Harvard Summer School. I will be starting at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in the fall. I have been tutoring students (ages ranging from 5-22) for over 10 years in subjects including, but not limited to, SAT/ACT prep, math, biology, chemistry, study skills and French. All of my students have seen drastic improvements in their grades and/or standardized testing scores. As part of WyzAnt, I am interested in tutoring SAT/ACT preparation, as well as middle school and high school level math, biology, English, study skills and college application advice. I am willing to provide my high school and college level GPAs in addition to ACT and SAT scores to those interested.

As a person who thrives on intellectual stimulation, I love nothing more than sharing my interests in learning with others. I become personally invested in the success of all of my students and thoroughly enjoy the satisfaction my students express upon mastery of a subject. I recognize that each student is unique and my priority is to understand both a student's strengths and weaknesses and to utilize their strengths to overcome any challenges posed by the material. I am a very creative person, and I am not afraid to think outside the box to present the material in new ways.

My schedule is flexible, and I am willing to travel to a public location for tutoring sessions (e.g., public library, coffee house). I am also available for online tutoring. My baseline rate is $80/hour. Prices are negotiable.

On a more personal note, I love biology and field work and especially love studying animal behavior. I thoroughly enjoy traveling, wildlife photography, theater, piano and playing tennis.

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.

College Counseling

I have been working as a college counselor for a few years. I help students with all aspects of the college counseling process including selecting specific schools to apply to, determining which extra-curricular activities and leadership positions to highlight, helping them choose a subject for their personal statement and aiding with any questions regarding the application itself. All of my students have been accepted by one of their three top choice institutions, including Ivy League schools such as Brown and the University of Pennsylvania.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored elementary school level math and reading to four previous students, all between 2-4th grade. I have passed the WyzAnt subject certifications for elementary math and elementary science. When teaching younger students, I spend a lot of time trying to get to know the students and exactly what aspects of basic concepts that are difficult for them to comprehend. I then use creative methods and hands-on teaching approaches to help the students grasp the concepts via real-world applications. For example, when teaching students basic addition and subtraction principles, I use marbles to illustrate the concept. It's a way of both teaching the necessary concepts and making math fun for both tutor and student!


I have been working as an Academic Tutor for the required pre-medical classes that are necessary for MCAT preparation for the past couple of years. These subjects include organic chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and verbal. In addition to preparing for and successfully completing the exam myself, I have worked with several students on MCAT preparation and medical school application guidance.

Organic Chemistry

I have worked as a Teaching Fellow at Harvard University for several introductory organic chemistry courses at both Harvard Extension School and Harvard Summer School. I have also been approved by the professors of these courses as a recommended academic tutor for the course and have previously worked full-time in this position.

I recognize that every student has different strengths, I utilize individualized learning styles to help make organic chemistry as accessible as possible. As a result, my students have seen tremendous improvements in both their understanding of the material and their course performance.
