About Christine


Bio

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.

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 with a concentration 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 graduate school at Ohio State where I was awarded a University Fellowship.

Professionally, I have over 12 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 am currently employed at a Columbus State Community College as a Learning Support Specialist in the Mathematics Department, where I tutor college level mathematics daily.

my favorite, most effective tutor ever

Christine helped me for a few weeks when I was struggling in my precalc class. She was patient, funny, and helped me make sense of things I truly struggled with. Because of her, I raised my grade by one letter grade. I greatly appreciate how she helped me and I could not recommend her more.

Great geometry tutor

She helped me work through a lot of problems and understand topics/problems in multiple ways helping me understand. She also helps with notes, and they come very handy later on!

Strives for student's understanding of material.

Christine has been tutoring my son in trigonometry. She is knowledgeable if the material and teaches it in a positive way. She makes sure he has an understanding before moving forward, so much so that they ran a little past hour. He has had tutors in the past but was really happy with her. She was very accommodating with scheduling, extremely prompt and great with communicating.

Christine is very patient and kind. My daughter felt both assisted and reassured. I would confidently recommend Christine to anyone needing algebra tutoring. She's been a great help.

Fantastic Teacher!

I have always struggled with Trig and had a test coming up that had material I had a lot of difficulty grasping. In just one hour, I understood everything and got a 100% on my test! She is very nice and patient and explains the material in a way that’s very easy to understand. Will definitely be scheduling more sessions with her.

Knowledgeable and Helpful

Christine was so helpful in teaching me the basic fundamentals of quadratic functions and transformations, she helped me tremendously in walking me through an assignment that I was struggling with. She spoke in terms that were easy to understand! She used real world examples for problems which was awesome.
