About Christina

For the past eight years, I have been a dedicated and diligent kindergarten, first grade, and second grade teacher at various schools in Connecticut, Long Island, and New York City.

I am currently employed as a kindergarten teacher in a NYC charter school. It is my goal to bring my knowledge and passion for rigorous instruction and life-long learning to parents seeking tutoring services for their children. My experience has helped me to become and expert in early childhood education and has helped me to set students up to achieve their full potential. I am confident that my motivation, enthusiasm, and nurturing skills will help students achieve academic success.

My goal is to set up each tutoring session in a fun and engaging way using games, manipulatives, and leveled readers. I use periodic assessments and progress reports to keep track of student progress. I am available Monday-Friday after school. I am willing to travel to a student's home or meet at a local library. My base rate is 100/hour (negotiable). I offer lesson packages at a discount rate- contact me for more details!

I utilize guided reading and close reading strategies to teach reading and comprehension.

I have designed and implemented units of study to support the Common Core State Standards. I also am experienced in using the EngageNY curriculum to deliver data driven literacy and math instruction.

I use EngageNY curriculum to deliver data driven and hands on math instruction. I am certified in the Wilson Fundations program to teach students handwriting skills.
I am certified in the Wilson Fundations program to teach students phonemic and phonological awareness. I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child achieve success in reading, writing, and math.
