Available to tutor to students in Malvern, West Chester, and Downingtown area after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Throughout my teaching and tutoring career, I have worked with students of all ages (from preschool to college-aged). I am currently in my seventh year of teaching high school English (grades 11 and 12) and have been tutoring students in SAT reading and writing for the same amount of time.
I enjoy working with students who are yearning to write better, whether it be for one essay (especially the college application essay) or for a challenging English course.
If you are looking for someone to offer personalized SAT prep, I will review previous tests from PSAT and work on specific areas that your student needs. I believe that discussing how students think about questions in a one-on-one environment is the key to improving test-taking strategies and identifying areas to improve.
In addition to being in my seventh year of teaching, I have spent the same amount of time creating and running after school SAT prep courses. I enjoy editing college application essays and have great success in helping students get into the schools they want.
I am happy to work with students for test prep 6-8 weeks prior to a test if you are looking for someone in the short-term to boost scores.
I'm am easy-going, personable, hard-working, and reliable. Available to tutor to students in Malvern, West Chester, and Downingtown area after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Christina is a very nice and patient English teacher. It is her teaching that has changed my kid and now he is interested in English writing and reading. Almost every week my child is looking forward to his private lessons. As a parent, I am very happy that we have Christina as our long term tutor. With the help of Christina, the parents need not worry about the child's study. It is hard to find a good teacher, but Christina is truly a good one!
Christina is a great teacher. She is organized, focused, paying attention to student's need. My son who is an eighth grader feels comfortable with her. My son's weakness is essay writing and she spent a whole session today giving him some points. I think this is very good. Thank you.
We had searched for a local tutor for my son to help improve his test scores for the Verbal SAT's. It was difficult to find someone and I stumbled upon WyzAnt tutoring and read the review for Christina P. Her profile seem to fit our needs. I contacted her and she got back to me immediately. We set up a time and place for meeting and she met with my son every week with lessons. He loved her. She sent me a review lesson on what they covered and sent him the answers so he could check him self. He made great progress and his confidence improved. Christina had a flexible schedule and I thought a very reasonable rate. My son recently completed his SAT's so we are awaiting his scores but he did take his ACT's and his Reading score improved 4 points so we were thrilled. We could not be happier with Christina P and would recommend her to anyone with high marks.
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.
I have experience teaching 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. If you need reading and writing tutoring, I am able to look at the big picture and identify writing goals as well as make sure a student is prepared for future schooling.
I have experience teaching major texts from the canon. From American classics like The Great Gatsby to old British favorites like Beowulf, I am well-read and have spent many years becoming familiar with texts that are commonly taught in schools.
As a young journalism student I spent years working as an editorial assistant. Since then, I have spent each fall examining student essays to help seniors improve word choice, grammar, and overall style in writing.
Each student is different when it comes to the reading test; luckily, the test is predictable. I will work to evaluate current strategies and trouble areas and formulate the best plan for reading sections for test day. We will also build on vocabulary during every session.
I have experience working with students from K-college in academic and test areas. I worked at Huntington Learning Center and monitored student progress as they worked on homework, offering enrichment and activities for students to continue to grow academically.
I have also worked in a Boys and Girls Club after school program where I assisted students in organizing their assignments, managing their time, and making study guides for themselves.
I am in my 6th year of teaching high school English and constantly offer my students options and strategies for preparing for vocabulary and writing exams.
