As a non-mathematically inclined individual, my mathematical accomplishments can be likened to successfully running a marathon in an ill-fitting pair of ice skates on scorching asphalt. Because of my personal history with math, I can relate to the feelings of imbalance, confusion, awkwardness, insecurity, and frustration that other mathematically challenged individuals experience. I can envision the stumbling blocks they will likely encounter and can illuminate the path before anyone lands face down in the gutter in front of a jeering un-empathetic crowd. I can relate to the experiences of the “keep up or get out” classrooms that perpetuate academic anxiety. I know what questions my students have before the query bubbles up from the depths of the unconscious. I understand the obstacles to overcome ... I’ve been there.
My education includes an Associate of Science in Mathematics from Columbus State Community College where I was an Honors Graduate; I also obtained my Bachelor's of Arts degree in Mathematics from Capital University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude; finally, I attended The Ohio State University where I studied Graduate Statistics as a University Fellow.
Professionally, I have over 8 years of tutoring experience with Columbus State and Capital University as a peer tutor, and at Ohio State in both the Student Athlete Support Program and the Statistics Department. I also taught with Columbus State in the Work Force Development Department for over 2 years teaching GED Mathematics, and I am currently employed at Columbus State as a Learning Support Specialist in the Mathematics Department.

Christine is able to relate to the student and explain math in "regular" language. She understands the pressures students face and has the ability to make them feel comfortable and confident.
She is the only tutor that takes time to understand how I learn. I'm finally starting to get algebra! She is worth every penny!
Christine is excellent,if the scale was 1 thru 10 she would have a 10 . She makes learning fun, nothing boring about her. She knows her stuff.
My son struggled with Algebra I during most of his freshman year. We hired Christine towards the end of the school year, and she helped him considerably, and has continued to work with him throughout the summer. Her style of teaching has made the difference in his comprehension of the content, and we are extremely pleased.
Christine was an excellent tutor for our 15 year old son who was struggling in Algebra 1. She was patient but pushed where needed, she kept things balanced by keeping the lesson on track but also allowed for moments of fun conversation. She helped him to 'get' Algebra with her Math 'stories' that transferred well to actual classroom use.
It's so amazing to hear your kid say that they don't dread math class or they passed a test because now they understand it! I have to say also that a she is also one of the most genuine, fun and sweet people we've met! And yes, he passed Algebra 1!!!
Christine was able to quickly assess where my daughter needed help in AP Statistics, determine how to make it clearer, and relay the important information and processes. We were under huge time pressure because my daughter was having a quiz at the end of the week and Christine jumped right in to help. She determined the exact content, what my daughter didn't understand, and how to get through. She also gave her a lot of confidence in her own ability to figure things out.
I am taking an online statistics course. It has been a nightmare for me. Learning statistics is like learning a new language. But Christine explains the concepts in ways that are easy to understand and remember. She is very patient, and supportive. I feel that she really understands what it's like to struggle with statistics. When I don't understand a concept completely, she finds another way to explain it. I don't feel rushed. She is also very flexible and willing to help whenever she can. I have learned a great deal from her in a short amount of time.
I definitely will continue in employing her services. She explains Stats in layman terms. I'm glad I found her.
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.
