Teaches students:
and Ages 5+

Teaching since:
August 2008

I started tutoring student-athletes when I was in college. After I graduated with my BS in microbiology with minors in chemistry and Spanish, I was a tutor at a state college working with high school and college students. I have also been privately tutoring students of all ages and levels.

I enjoy the learning process and the interaction between instructor and student, working together to solve problems and figure out concepts that were not clear before. I've always wanted to be a teacher and I hope to be a middle or high school science teacher in the future. I'm currently a grad student finishing my Master's in biomedical science and a substitute teacher.

I have earned good scores in history and English, but I feel more comfortable tutoring in algebra, chemistry, biology, statistics, and Spanish.

As with all services, please give accurate, timely feedback to your tutor. We are tutors, not teachers, and if you are satisfied or dissatisfied with our work, please tell us! We all want to help our students and we cannot do that effectively if the student does not speak up about what they need.

If you enjoy what you're learning and you feel like you're making good progress with your tutor, say it!

If you feel like your tutor is not helping or is not a good personality fit, say it!

Thank you.

Christine was very instrumental in my B in statistic. I could have gotten an A had I been smart enough to engage her services at the beginning of the semester. She was very patient and knowledgeable and wouldn't let me give up on myself.

I was stuck on a few math formulas but after one session she found my errors and talked me through the corrections. We didn't move on until I completely understood the concept. It was like a switch had been flipped and then everything made sense to me. THANK YOU, Christine! Looking forward to our next session together.
