Christina

I earned my bachelor's degree from Northwestern University in computer science. I have worked at the NIH and at Caltech as a bioinformatics researcher, and I am starting graduate school this fall. My experiences as a student and scientist help me explain concepts and work through problems in a clear and engaging manner. I love teaching, and strive to make each personalized lesson enjoyable and productive. In addition to math and science, I can teach the skills and strategies students need to reach their goals on the ACT, GRE, or AP tests. I also enjoy working with elementary age students to increase reading and math proficiencies.

What is your teaching philosophy?

All students learn at a unique pace. My goal as a tutor is to help identify students' specific strengths and weaknesses, in order to keep them engaged and focus on the concepts they most need. I love to use visual aids to reinforce concepts, and have a digital drawing tablet to write and draw in online lessons.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a first session, I want to get to know my student's interests and motivations. I want to help the student set realistic goals, and make a plan to reach them.
