## Awesome tutor

Lexie, 1 lesson with ChristinaChristina was very patient with me. whenever I asked for clarification on anything she explained it to me in a way I could understand. I will definitely be using her in the future!

My lifelong passion of Math/Science includes a desire to share my ability/interest with others. My goal is to make Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) subjects interesting and understandable, so lives of those learning are enhanced. Have a knack for connecting with learners, with ability to identify how a person learns, where they are struggling, and can determine creative ways of working with each unique learner to gain success.

Christina has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **4 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## amazingly

My daughter looks forward to her sessions and gets excited on tutoring day. It’s amazing how her attitude about math has changed. I’m so grateful

Christy, 7 lessons with Christina

## amazingly

My daughter says she finally can understand math. Wow. She hated math and although khan academy is great it wasn’t enough. I may have to hire her for my son.

Christy, 7 lessons with Christina

## Excellent tutor

My daughter is really connecting with Tina. She has been patient, flexible, and very helpful. I will continue to use Tina for a long period of time. I am even hoping to use Tina throughout all of high school.

Jessica, 12 lessons with Christina

## AMAZING

Christina plain and simple has helped my son feel incredibly confident in math and engineering. My son has had horrible experiences with some tutors from other platforms. Christina is truly a blessing for my son!

Carter, 11 lessons with Christina

## great tutor

She has been a life saver in helping me prepare for my entry exam for a apprenticeship. Would highly recommend

Robert, 5 lessons with Christina

## Knows her material, very patient. and easy to understand.

Christina helped my daughter with High School Honors Geometry. My daughter was having difficulty with Geometry.....circles to be specific and Christina really helped her understand. My daughter says her explanations were easy to understand....and she went at the right speed for her. I definitely recommend Christina and will be using her again when needed.

Cindy, 3 lessons with Christina

## Differentiated Approach, Extraordinary Results

Tina’s approach challenges my daughter to think beyond her school work, drawing upon real life examples to encourage problem solving, application and math fluency. Shortly after we began working with Tina, I discovered her proprietary method for teaching was far superior to our school's curriculum. In fact, she’s accelerated my daughter's already above-grade understand of math by introducing new concepts in unconventional ways. If you are looking for a challenger, a mentor, or that spark to ignite your kid's curiosity of math, I would reach out and have a conversation with Tina.

Eric, 35 lessons with Christina

## Honors Geometry

Christina was a God sent. We contacted her the day before the final test and she was able to help my 9th grader clarify and understand her review. My daughter had had no luck with a prior local tutor and was not prone to try again; but after 15 minutes with Christina her stress was gone and her confidence returned. Can’t thank her enough! Booking her for next year!

Maria, 2 lessons with ChristinaTutor responded:I am here when you need me!

## Coming in clutch 100%

If y’all are looking for a down to earth and friendly tutor, Mrs. Christina is the one! I was looking for tutors for my GED and she was recommended to me. From first impressions to continuous tutor sessions she’s really helpful. Not only she talks about the specifics about the topic of the subject, she also tells it to me in a way i can understand about the topic of the subject. Overall clutch and great tutor 👍

John, 10 lessons with ChristinaTutor responded:You did awesome! Congradulation on passing all four GED tests on the first try!
