Christine's Bio

A tutor who loves to learn new things, Christine earned her BS in computer science with a minor in mathematics from DePauw University, where she graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. Prior to becoming a tutor, Christine had a twenty-five-year career in IT. As a business owner and consultant, she worked with over fifteen different companies--both in the U.S. and abroad--learning new corporate cultures, hierarchies, and workstreams to maximize results. Christine's primary responsibility was developing and conducting training for users at all levels, ensuring adoption and full understanding prior to program, project or system deployment.

Christine started peer tutoring in college and, throughout her IT career, volunteered as a tutor for an adult reading program. In the last decade she began tutoring SAT prep, ACT prep, and high school math both privately and through premiere programs. "I love when the students suddenly 'get' something that has been eluding them," she says. "And I love how excited they get when their scores improve and they can get into that college they really wanted."

As an experienced tutor, Christine's methodology is to determine the student's primary and secondary learning style and deploy the most effective methods and tactics to engage them. In her experience, this highly supportive and accessible approach yields the best results. She works to use "all the different learning methods--visual, auditory, kinesthetic--during the lesson to get the concepts across." She adds, "I try to build a relationship with my students by learning their interests and bringing those into the lessons as much as possible."

In high school and college, Christine participated in Honor Society, yearbook, sorority, and public speaking. Christine's passion for learning and teaching has guided not only her career decisions but also her personal pursuits. She is a voracious reader, enjoys competitive running, a wide variety of charitable work and has volunteered as a tutor in an adult reading program through her local library. Christine enjoys running and has run multiple 5Ks and is now training for a 10K.
