Christine: Founder - Tutors: ELA: K-12 / Math: 6-8 / Science: K-9 / TACHS / SHSAT / SAT: Verbal
I have a Master of Science Education and a BA of Science from The College of Staten Island. I’m working on my Doctorate of Education from the American College of Education. I am also trained in the Orton Gillingham method.
Hello! My name is Christine.
I have over 20 years experience teaching in the Staten Island Community.
I started “Tutoring By Christine” in 2010 to help empower students with knowledge, confidence and ability to advance and meet their academic goals. As I look back, I could have never expected to get so much in return. It is so fulfilling to be a part of the journey many of our students go through and to see them come out on top. I love that “Aha” moment- when a student who has been struggling makes a breakthrough.
The biggest compliment that I ever received as a tutor and teacher is that I make students feel smart and that I give them confidence. My goal is to encourage each and every student that I come in contact with to reach his or her fullest potential. I truly believe that self-confidence is essential to one’s emotional, intellectual, and physical well-being.
I have tutored students for state exams, TACHS and SHSAT exams, Regents and PSAT/SAT exams. Quite often, I will tutor the same student throughout the years for each of the exams- I am honored when students return again and again for prep, and when their siblings follow. When students’ academic needs are not being met in the traditional way, I am fortunate to be in the position to be able to fill this gap, whether it be by enriching students’ education or by providing needed support.
I love it when students text me pictures of their acceptance letters or of their impressive SAT scores. Tutoring at “Tutoring By Christine” has enriched my life in so many ways, and I have my students and their parents to thank for it. Thank You!
