About Christine

My love for teaching stems from my love for learning. Since I was in kindergarten, I was tapped by the classroom teacher to be the peer tutor for my classmates. My love for teaching and learning led me to pursue a career in education as a classroom teacher following my college graduation. As an educator for the past five years, I have seen hundreds of students unlock their potential to improve in the area of language arts.

I specialize in tutoring English Reading, Writing, and Grammar and Mechanics for increased confidence, comprehension, getting ahead and improving grades in school, and also for the SAT Verbal exam.

My tutoring method is individualized to each student which allows my students to be challenged without feeling overwhelmed. I assign homework after every lesson, and I provide assessments and progress reports.

I am available to provide tutoring on evenings and weekends. I can travel to meet students, or I can meet at an agreed upon location. My base rate is $50/hour, test preparation is $55/hour, and I offer group rates - contact me for details!

I hold an Advanced Professional Certificate in teaching Secondary English Language Arts and Special Education from the Maryland State Department of Education. I also tutor SAT Verbal preparation to high school students on a weekly basis.

I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you to achieve in your English Language Arts studies and Test Preparation!
