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. I can envision the stumbling blocks they will likely encounter and can illuminate the path before anyone lands...

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.

Christine knows her math AND has a terrific, encouraging approach to tutoring

Christine has been working through college calculus I with my daughter who is a senior in high school. She was terrific! She knew the material and explained it in a clear, logical manner that was easy to follow. Also - and very importantly - Christine did not talk down to my daughter or make her feel stupid. It takes a lot for some kids to admit they need help, and having an impatient or eye-rolling tutor is really embarrassing for them. There are quite a few tutors who are amazing in their field, but convey a "you seriously don't get this?!" attitude. Christine was quite the opposite and that's what really sets her apart. :)

terrific calculus tutor

My son was very reluctant to have a tutor help him with his calculus. Christine had him smiling by the end of the session. She was patient and explained things clearly. Looking forward to more sessions with her.

Eric, 1 lesson with Christine

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.
