About Cristina

I've wanted to teach from the time I was a freshman in high school, and started working with elementary students at Nottingham Elementary. During my years in high school, I was involved with a lot of activities at Nottingham Elementary, including tutoring students and the C.H.U.M.S. program, which I co-founded. Recently, I ran into a student who I tutored and she told me how much of a difference I made in her life. In 1999, I was awarded the Randall Sebastian Volunteer of the Year award for my dedication to the students at Nottingham school.

I attended the Oxford schools up until graduating from high school in 1999, and I currently substitute for the elementary schools in this great district through Substitute Teacher Service. I graduated from Shippensburg University in 2003 and began my teaching career there with third grade for five years. I moved back to Oxford due to a decline in my mother’s health and to further pursue my dream of teaching in this great district.

The past three years I have grown and learned a lot through substituting. I'm currently a substitute teacher in the Avon Grove School District. Last year I was a long-term substitute at Avon Grove Intermediate School in West Grove, PA. It's been an exciting time working with a classroom of students and watching their growth. Teaching is my passion and I enjoy watching children blossom.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I'm certified in Elementary Education. I currently substitute teach and have used different curriculums. I've created interventions to both remediate and enrich students learning. The math programs I have used are Everyday Mathematics, Scott Foresman, and Bridges. I have lots of reading resources which include Compare and Contrast; Cause and Effect; Sequencing; Main Idea and Detail. I've worked with Word Study for Spelling.

Elementary Math
