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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master's degree in Education. My experience includes tutoring and coaching in multiple subjects in the K-6 grades. I've been a teachers aide in a 5th grade classroom and will be a substitute teacher in a k-8 charter school in the upcoming school year.

Study Skills

I've assisted students with improving study skills for 5 years. I also have extensive education and training in learning theory and human/student development. I use my experiences to help students develop skills that allow them to reduce dependency on tutoring and homework assistance over time. I do this with the use of activities that develop focus, hone note-taking techniques, and improve textbook reading comprehension.

Great Tutor!

Christine was a wonderful tutor for my daughter. She was struggling with her studies and very frustrated, ready to give up. Christine made it easy and fun for my daughter to be able to study in a different way. My daughter passed her final exam with a B. Thanks, Christine, this was the best thing that has happened for her. She feels more confident as well. Thanks so much!
