## 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. I hold current Michigan/Utah Professional Teaching...

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

## 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, 20 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!

## 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 👍

## Advanced Algebra Tutor

Christina has been tutoring my son who is a junior in high school. She is an amazing tutor, professional, patient and dependable. With her help, my son has been able to keep up and understand with algebra concepts. She accommodates us if we need extra time or changes in schedules. She always gives her feedback on how the session went and what was reviewed. Highly recommend!

Teresa, 11 lessons with Christina

## Very Knowledgeable and Great Tutor

Christina is awesome! She helped my son who was struggling with Algebra II. She is very smart and could explain the concepts to him in multiple ways. She made sure he knew when he was doing well, to help build his confidence.

Erika, 4 lessons with Christina

## structured and productive time

Christina is able to be very structured and anticipate future challenges and topics so we can pre-empt the difficulty and so my son can get "ahead of the curve"

Bea, 14 lessons with Christina

## Excellent Tudor!

We were very pleased with Tina, my daughter’s tutor. She was very professional and did lessons in person most of the time and virtual other times when needed! She is very flexible and answered all of our questions! She’s very dedicated, extremely knowledgeable and gave my daughter the confidence she needed for the ACT exam!!! Highly recommended…..five stars plus!
