About Christine


Bio

I have been teaching Spanish language classes since 1981 and have taught all levels from kindergartners up through college literature classes. Some of my most rewarding teaching experiences have been through tutoring students who were struggling, some of whom were convinced that they just couldn't learn a language. I have been able to convince them otherwise. I believe that a good tutor works very hard to put herself or himself out of a job. My goal is to teach students how to learn so...

I have been teaching Spanish language classes since 1981 and have taught all levels from kindergartners up through college literature classes. Some of my most rewarding teaching experiences have been through tutoring students who were struggling, some of whom were convinced that they just couldn't learn a language. I have been able to convince them otherwise. I believe that a good tutor works very hard to put herself or himself out of a job. My goal is to teach students how to learn so that they don't need a tutor anymore. Some students need just a few sessions to get on the right track. Others need more prolonged support. In all cases I focus on how a student can use his or her strengths as a learner to best advantage and how to develop other skills as well.

I have been teaching Spanish language and literature classes since 1981, and have taught all levels from kindergarteners through seniors in college. I also have many years' experience as a tutor and have worked with educational psychologists in identifying possible learning differences. My focus is on helping a student identify his or her strengths and then showing them how to make maximum use of those strengths. Some students need explicit instruction in how to learn a language, and this is often not addressed in language classes. My goal is to help a student become an independent learner as soon as possible. I currently teach in a private high school. I am certified in Pennsylvania to teach Spanish K-12.

Great Spanish tutor!

My daughter attends a very rigorous private school and her Spanish 2 class was especially challenging to her. She felt confused and lost and after one session with Christine she finally felt she understand the grammar that was confusing her. In her words after one session with Christina- "oh my gosh I actually understand it now". Will definitely work with her ongoing.

Highly Recommend!

Christine jumped in on short notice to help our 8th grader prepare for his Spanish final. She was responsive and flexible with scheduling. She was able to keep our son engaged in Spanish review for hour-long sessions. She was creative in her approach and encouraging. She is helping our son to overcome his "I just can't learn Spanish" mindset. He enjoys working with her and we plan to continue to use her next school year. Thanks Christine!
