About Christine

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.

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.

Spanish

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.
