About Christy

Hello! I'm a multiply certified teacher/school administrator candidate. I know that sometimes school can be challenging, however, I have had great success in my own classroom over the years and would love to help your child! I have taught many grade levels and subjects over the years so I am qualified in a wide variety of areas.

I think you will be pleased with my casual approach to learning because I get results!

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.

Algebra 1

As a math teacher, I believe that Algebra I is an important foundation for math courses to come.

College Counseling

I have extensive experience in the college admissions process. I have been an alumni volunteer at my alma mater for over a decade. I have helped students to write essays that have gotten them into the colleges of their choice. If you are unsure about what college you want to go to, I can help you out with that decision as well. None of the decisions about college are easy, but I can help make the process a little bit more painless!

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher. I have experience in tutoring students in all elementary subject matter, including the four major subject areas (reading/English, math, science, and social studies).

Elementary Math

Because I'm a history teacher first, I teach mathematics from the perspective of someone who math doesn't come to very easily. I can break it down and explain it in ways that make sense and apply it to real life situations so that the content is clearer.

Flute

I studied flute privately for a dozen years. In addition to private study, I played in a number of groups. I can teach the basics including tone quality, scales, how to tackle various musical compositions. My training was classical in nature, and while my approach is similar, that does not exclude learning to play more popular pieces.

Prealgebra

As a math teacher, I believe that prealgebra and algebra are important foundations for math courses to come.

Proofreading

Sometimes, it's easy to overlook errors in your own paper. With editorial experience, I can help you make your writing shine!

Social Studies

I have been actively teaching social studies for eight years. I take a story-based approach to history to make learning the subject more interesting for young learners. I also work to address specific skills like maps, charts, graphs, and interpreting data. I like students to also see connections between the social studies and the other academic areas.

Study Skills

I have extensive experience teaching students every single day. Study skills are always a part of my lessons. I can also offer assistance in organization as well. Often, many students who are not performing well are suffering from a lack of confidence in their study skills. Schools are sometimes not equipping students with the best study skills for their individual learning styles. I can help with that. I have helped many students conquer their daily school lessons, tests, and even standardized tests with great success.

Vocabulary

I also am being trained in the Marzano vocabulary method, a fun way to learn words in context.

World History

I am a certified history teacher with nine years of experience. I have taught all grade levels and I know how to make history both relevant and fun!

Writing

I am certified to teach English and I have a journalism degree. I love to write and read and I have a flair getting non-interested readers and writers to do both!
