About the lesson

Education has never been and will never be a one size fits all kind of thing, yet it continues to operate as though it is. School districts and teachers try endlessly to combat this inadequate system, but unless the student to teacher ratio lowers, not much can be done. Because of this, tutors, like me, have been employed to provide students with the supplemental help they need to succeed in school, and prepare for college.

My teaching philosophy was built on the idea that education should be personalized—tailored to the needs of each individual. Some students get on fine in the classroom but just need a little help staying organized. Others aren’t challenged enough at school and need additional stimulation. And some fail to keep up with the pace at which the teacher is moving and need intervention before their grades, and confidence plummet. I can help ANY student, including those requiring special accommodations.

About Christine

I have been teaching English and ESL part-time since 2014, and until the pandemic, had steady employment each semester. To stay busy while stuck at home, I started helping high school students with their homework on Zoom. I had always enjoyed working with my own students one-on-one during office hours and in the campus reading and writing center, so I found myself really looking forward to going to “work.” Before I knew it, I was working with a 12th grader, a 9th grader, a 5th grader, a 4th grader, a kindergartener, and a 10th grader living in Shanghai—most of whom I was creating original lessons for.

My job as a full-time English tutor practically started itself, and it didn’t care if I was ready or not. Over the past year, I’ve learned so much about American education, running a successful business, and myself, and I never want it to end. It takes a lot of work to be an educator. It takes A LOT of work to be a good one. But what does it take to be the best? To me, it takes a willingness to be a lifelong learner, and to never reach a point where I feel comfortable to stop growing.

I hold myself to very high standards, which you will see when you work with me.
