My Teaching Method:
Listening is key. I like to first understand what it is my students are looking to improve. I then ask about personal preferences, hobbies, passions, and the ways they like to learn. I believe learning takes places much faster with established rapport and trust.
I always tailor my method to each individual student. Whether my lessons are in-person or online, students will make the most of their time and practice both during and in between sessions. Preference: middle school, high school, and adult learners.
Students should expect to learn all skills via a combination of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic methods. All lessons include a warm up, main activity, and warm down. If needed, I may also assign small homework assignments from time time to time.
I am a partner in your journey to reach your ELA or ESL goals. It is my promise to provide you with opportunity, guidance, various resources, and information to help you succeed.
If you are still curious about how I teach, what you can expect, or would like to hear real reviews from previous students, please reach out! I am available for a free consultation. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Hi! My name is Christie, and I am an English teacher and tutor with over 5 years of experience both in the classroom and in one-on-one private settings. I graduated from West Chester University with a Masters of Arts degree in TESOL and a focus on Linguistics and Literature. Because I believe learning happens when you least expect it, I strive to make my classes and sessions energetic, creative, and personal to connect to students' interests and goals. It is rewarding to help others better understand a subject that is rich in history and science, and can provide a firmer platform for other academic and life skills. I have experienced this while teaching at the adult, high school, and grade school level in order to help improve their ESL skills. Similarly, I have experience helping high school students prepare for FSA testing, college prep, and the high school level curriculum in the ELA and Literature classes. Though I am familiar with how to teach English in various situations, connecting my lesson to students' learning styles and subject matter takes more than just knowledge.
Having experience teaching both internationally and in the United States has also been a great learning tool. This opportunity has factored in to the way I teach and brings a unique level of understanding to both my students and the way I conduct lessons. I pride myself in having a working knowledge outside of the subject to help learners achieve their goals beyond the immediate lesson.
Christie is thorough and has a genuine love for teaching. She teaches with the individual needs of all of her students in mind. She has a passion for language and literacy. Christie is trustworthy because she does all things with integrity!
I have known Christie for a few years. She is very compassionate about teaching and helping people. She is also very creative and always communicates with her students. I definitely would recommend and trust her with any child’s educational needs.
