About Christy

Math never came naturally for me. I thought I was just "bad at math," but now I know that doesn't exist. I just didn't know the right approach to learning. I have studied various methods for 20 years and now have a grasp of the most effective means by which to help students understand and overcome any obstacle. My success as a tutor stems from my own experience as a struggling student. I haven't forgotten what it was like to feel unusual because I was failing and not able to understand my own tutors. I am a very sensitive person who understands that not everyone learns the same way and instruction involves finding how each person can relate in order to master a particular concept.

I graduated from MTSU in Murfreesboro, Tennessee in 1993 with a teaching degree, I taught 3rd and 5th grades for 7 years, which is where I realized my absolute love of teaching math. I adored teaching and only stopped when my daughter was born. Now I homeschool my children who are currently high school age. As a homeschool teacher I am active in these subjects daily with my own children. As a mom, I understand budget constraints and expect results for your investment.

I enjoy helping my students find ways to retain various concepts that are unique to each of them. As we are working, I will often ask them how they might suggest to be able to remember how to do this in the future, providing them with valuable study skills that will assist in any subject studied.

I am extremely patient and willing to tailor my instruction to what best fits each individual learning style. I'm excited for you and your child to see their results!

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

I have a teaching degree from MTSU and have been teaching algebra for the last eight years.

Elementary Math

I have taught Elementary Math for 12 years and it's one of my favorite subjects. While earning my degree at MTSU and through my teaching experience, I have learned many handy instructional tools that make math both fun and real to the students. Teaching my own children at home has helped tremendously by allowing me to explore a multitude of helpful materials.

I enjoy working with kids to help them understand the very foundation they'll need for the advanced math that awaits them.

Prealgebra

As a former struggling student myself, I have dedicated myself to studying and understanding pre-algebra. I have an Elementary Education degree from MTSU which gave me important teaching methods for math. I have taught pre-algebra in schools and to my homeschooled children.
I love pre-algebra! The beginning of algebra is my absolute favorite. The foundation is critical to future algebra success and I work hard to make it fun and relevant to your child.
I have taught pre-algebra for many years and both enjoy and understand it while still remembering how hard it was when I was learning.
