About Christine

Hello! My name is Ms. Christine and I am a multi-disciplinary educator with many years of experience. I have an undergraduate degree in secondary education with a concentration in social studies. Many years later, after homeschooling all four of my children, I returned to school and earned a Masters in Elementary Education. I have taught children from kindergarten all the way through to high school in public, online, and charter schools in many subjects. Additionally, I have active teaching certifications in high school social studies, middle school language arts, middle school science, and elementary education for all subjects. Most recently, I have been a third and fourth grade teacher at the Souderton Charter School Collaborative and a reading teacher at the Laboratory Charter School of Communications and Languages in Philadelphia. Finally, I have worked one-on-one with homebound students and English Language Learners.

It is a unique joy and challenge for me to get to know how each child learns as an individual and tailor my instruction accordingly. I entered the teaching profession to help children succeed academically and socially and my success depends upon the success of my students!

~ Successful classroom experience teaching students in grades 1 through 8 reading and literature
~ Successful experience teaching my own four children to read
~ Experience with 100 Book Challenge Reading Program
~ Experience with guided reading programs

~ Experience teaching multiple grade levels and multiple disciplines

~ Experience with SRA and other phonics-based programs

I invite you to contact me and set up a few lessons to see if I am a good "fit" for your child.

Thank you for your consideration!

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.

Guitar

My first exposure to playing guitar was during a required guitar class in sixth grade. Consequently, playing guitar and other stringed instruments has become a lifelong pursuit and passion. I have taught beginning guitar classes and private guitar since 2007 and some of my students have become accomplished players. Currently, I play at bluegrass and old-time jams as a creative outlet. I also continue to perform special music or provide accompaniment at too many events to name.

When teaching beginners, I like to equip students with an understanding of the fretboard, note reading, and chord theory while keeping the learning fun!

Handwriting

I was certified as a Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Instructor through a Zaner-Bloser correspondence course. This was a requirement of my graduate program through Western Governors University.

I have at least 5-8 years of experience teaching handwriting using the "Handwriting Without Tears" program while homeschooling and in the classroom setting.

Additionally, I have experience using the Zaner-Bloser handwriting program for first through fourth grade in the classroom setting.
