About Christina

Hi!

I'm Chrissy, a young professional looking to expand my experiences in education through exploring tutoring opportunities. I'm currently working on my M.A. in Teaching of English at Columbia Teachers College. I have four years of experience teaching literacy to grades 6-12. My last teaching job was a growing school, so I was flexible and taught every grade level within my certification. I designed the curriculum and was the school's founding High School English teacher, so I have a great deal of knowledge in differentiating to different students' needs. I have also done private tutoring, and have tons of experience working with young people in the dramatic arts from directing main stage productions, to coaching speech and debate.

I have ADHD, but have been extremely successful and love to work with students to develop similar strategies or ones that work for them. I am a seasoned public speaker with national recognition in competitive interpretation (public speaking and acting). I myself have ranked third in the nation and have coached numerous high school students to national and state finals including championship. I'd love to coach you from overcoming setbacks and discovering the gifts of ADHD. I'd love to help you get through stage fright, and become confident. I'd love to help you see the joy in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

I love helping students. It is the most gratifying feeling there is.

I look forward to discovering your gifts with you, and using them to make learning fun.

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.

Aspergers

Worked with IEP's for my students on the spectrum. Planned differentiated assignments, and conferenced regularly to come up with individual teaching points. I've taken multiple special education classes at the undergraduate and graduate level which focus a great deal on autism.

College Counseling

I have taught entire units which focus on writing college essays. They use dramatic arts strategies to push students toward their personal truth. I'm excited by the opportunity to work 1-1 with students on this important work!

I've taken multiple special education classes at the undergraduate and graduate level which focus a great deal on Dyslexia. My father and sister are Dyslexic, so it is close to my heart. I worked with a student on a one woman show who has an IEP for her dyslexia.

Public Speaking

I was captain of my State Champion Speech Team, MFL 2007-2009. I won 3rd place in prose & poetry reading, NCFL Grand National Tournament, in Spring 2009. I was the Massachusetts State Champion in Poetry Reading, 2008. I have been coaching, and judging forensics, 7+ years.

My combined experience teaching ELA and 10+ years in competitive public speaking and coaching make me a highly qualified tutor for public speaking.

I am a singer/songwriter with some internet published work. I am a writer singer, and guitar/Ukulele player. I can teach students to develop their own creative process.

Special Needs

I've taken multiple special education classes at the undergraduate and graduate level which focus on students with exceptionalities.
