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.

Algebra 2

I have 3 years experience tutoring basic and advanced algebraic concepts and skills. I use technology to focus student exercises on her or his specific areas of weakness.

Art History

I completed 12 credits in art history including courses such as Women in Art; PreHistoric & Medieval Art; Art Since 1950; and Art, Design, and Visual Culture. I love to share my passion for art history and help others understand its historical context and value.

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 tutored children as young as 4 in core subjects.

Elementary Math

I have 3 years experience tutoring math concepts and skills. I use technology to focus student exercises on her or his specific areas of weakness. This allows for more productive lessons and extended opportunities for students to practice on their own.

English

I taught high school English grades 9-12 for 2 years, including AP Language Arts. I've always been intrigued by the nuances of grammar and language. This joy in words has helped me be a successful teacher, tutor, and writing coach.

SAT Math

100+ Wyzant tutoring hours

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!
