About Christine

Recently received emergency teacher certification PK - 12 grade from the PA Department of Education to substitute teach in local school districts.

I believe education and perseverance are the main building blocks for success. As an educator, my goal has always been in building the confidence of students in a subject or subjects they do not feel confident in. My expertise is in English, writing (essays, creative writing, non-fiction, and reports), history, reading comprehension, test preparation. My experience has included working with elementary students in the school Resource Room helping them with grammar, sentence structure, writing and reading. I also have experience working with high school students, college students and adult students to improve their writing skills and research skills.

As a tutor, I encourage the students to problem solve and not do the work for the student. Everyone learns differently and I keep that in the forefront while working with students. I let them take the lead and try to figure the problem out for themselves. I believe that students need to experience the feeling of success no matter how small. I have a sense of humor, am patient, and respectful of those I tutor. I hold a BA in American History and Critical Writing. I have also taken courses towards a Master's Degree.
