Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to peruse my page! Just a little bit about me: I graduated magna cum laude from Emory University in 2019 with a BS in Biology and a 3.9 GPA. I have tutored students part-time for three years in various STEM courses and academic writing. My ultimate goals as a tutor are to help you achieve your academic goals and acritically think about concepts.

Hello, I appreciate you taking the time to peruse my page! Just a little bit about me: I graduated magna cum laude from Emory University in 2019 with a BS in Biology and a 3.9 GPA. I have tutored students part-time for three years in various STEM courses and academic writing. My ultimate goals as a tutor are to help you achieve your academic goals and acritically think about concepts. While learning is very rarely a straightforward process, the emotional payoff from mastering a concept is incredibly rewarding and is something that I am excited to help you accomplish!

I have experience teaching students as a Supplemental Instructor in Advanced Genetics, where I created my own presentations, handouts, and practice exams for students that reflected the content and difficulty of the class. I also received the Biology Faculty Award in 2017 from Oxford College of Emory University for my contributions in teaching. In addition to this, I worked as a writing tutor for two semesters; having had two years of experience in cancer research, including my honors thesis which involved an oral defense of my research project and a written thesis, I am skilled at teaching students how to think and communicate scientifically.

Besides biology, have also taken and received A's in college level general chemistry I/II, organic chemistry I/II, and calculus I/II, which has given me a strong background in these topics. In total, I have accumulated well over 1000 hours tutoring high school and college-level chemistry and math both in person and online and have received many positive reviews from my students.

I am happy to incorporate any additional resources into my teaching, and I'm always willing to hear any feedback. I also like for my students to share any resources such as homework, notes, old quizzes, etc. with me before a session so that I can tailor my lesson to whatever areas they are having trouble with. Please contact me with any questions you may have, and I look forward to helping you with your academic growth and success!

I have a year of experience as an academic writing tutor at the college level and am accustomed to revising and critiquing a wide variety of subjects ranging from film studies to chemistry and biology. I also have research experience that culminated in a written honors thesis and am therefore particularly well-equipped to help with academic writing in the sciences. I also have helped edit college essays and job application essays. Having graduated from a top 20 university, I am also happy to give any additional interview and/or resume building tips that you may be interested in!

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I have received A’s in college level Calculus I and II, and I have tutored at the high school and college level in both courses. I have tutored Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus, AP Calculus AB/BC, IB Calculus SL/HL, Calculus I, and Calculus II. When teaching math I tend to explain how to solve a problem, asking questions throughout the process to allow students to understand the logic of each step. Throughout the learning process, I encourage students to adopt an increasing degree of independence until they are able to completely solve a problem while also understanding what their answer means.

I hold a BS in Biology, graduated magna cum laude from Emory University, and I am currently pursuing medical school. My honors thesis was in cancer biology, and the ultimate goal of my research was to determine whether a sub-population of prostate cancer patients with a certain genetic profile were particularly responsive to a cancer drug, and I will be a co-author on the article for this project (revisions in the works!). I have a couple years of experience teaching high school and college level biology, and I have written practice exams, creating handouts, and preparing biweekly presentations, and I've received the Biology Faculty Award in 2017 for my teaching. I also have experience revising and critiquing biology lab reports and projects. I have also received A's in all college-level biology courses that I have taken. Subjects that I have tutored in include AP Biology, IB Biology SL/HL, Introductory Biology at the college level, Advanced Genetics, and Evolutionary Biology.

I have received A's in college-level general chemistry I and II and organic chemistry I and II. I'm also currently studying for the MCAT, which requires mastery of general and organic chemistry, so knowledge of these topics is fresh on my mind. I have also taken labs for all four of the classes and have a year of experience tutoring college students in academic writing, including for chemistry classes. I was also offered a position as a supplemental instructor in general chemistry. I have tutored AP Chemistry, IB Chemistry SL/HL, General Chemistry I/II, and Organic Chemistry I/II.

Great Teacher!!

Great service. My son came out if his lesson with Christina with a better understanding of what he’s doing in Chemistry. I will definitely call on her again and also recommend this service to others. Thank you

Great AP Chem tutor

Awesome AP Chem tutor for my 16 year old daughter. Patient, focused and very easy to work with. Easy to schedule and very responsive. Very complex topics and she did a wonderful job explaining tricks to solving problems.

Chemistry - high school +college

We’ve worked with Christina with both of our daughters - a pre-med sophomore in college and a sophomore in high school. She was amazing for both of them. My college student set the curve on her last exam, and my high school student got a 100% on an exam that she was earlier (pre-tutor) convinced she would fail. Christina is so patient, knowledgeable , and knows exactly how to break concepts down. She works at your student’s level very effectively.

sharp and excellent tutor. just perfect.

Thanks Christine for tutoring my 10th grader foe chemistry. Great job and very clear and helpful instruction. We look forward to working with you.

Excellent Tutor for college Biology and Chemistry

Christina is an excellent tutor for biology majors. My Daugher instantly bonded with her and Christina is thorough with her review after each session I receive a break down on what was covered.

Elyse, 19 lessons with Christina

knowledgeable and patient tutor

Christina helped us in a pinch and was very helpful and professional. My daughter was preparing for a test and had a few questions over some of the concepts. We would definitely call Christina again in the future.

Melissa, 2 lessons with Christina

knowledgeable tutor.

We went over general chemistry; solutions, gas laws, endothermic and exothermic reactions, solubility, conversions, limiting reactants, oxidation and reduction. It was very helpful.
