About this tutor

[email protected]

I pride myself in the rapport I build with my students. I teach the whole student. I have taken classes and conducted research to propel my professional development into understanding kids. I am especially proud of my work with kids who often shut down. I include social emotional learning into my lesson plans as a special education teacher every week. Student have shown to increase their engagement and learning as a result.

I always say that I have the best job in the world and I really do. Seeing students from middle school to high school mature and learn challenging concepts is incredibly rewarding. I think teaching reading and writing is challenging for many teachers but I feel I am able to connect with students in a way they haven't had and help them gain the necessary skills to enable them to read and write on their own. My goal for all of my students is for them to be independent when reading and writing. One day, they won't need me which is sad but also rewarding. I love helping kids achieve their goals. There is so much more I could say. Please email me [email protected]

  • 8th grade student

    I really appreciate how comfortable you made me feel in your class. Thank you for putting the extra effort into helping me.

  • Alexandra C.

    Christina was excellent when she worked with my son. She took the time to really understand his personal needs and where he struggled. She found reading passages that he would like to help keep his interest. She challenged him and didn’t let him take the easy way out. She was patient and he really enjoyed working with her. It was clear she really cares about her students.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

[email protected]

First I like to get to know the student. It is important that my students always know that I care about their interests. This also helps me to plan engaging lesson plans for students. Secondly, depending on what the student needs help with, we may list goals or begin a postive reinforcement program.  Then we may begin to organize and plan to write an essay or dissect a text in order to understanding its meaning. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

[email protected]

I am a NYS certified teacher with a Masters in English Education grades 5-12 and Students with Disabilities grades 7-12. I have a total of four NYS certifications as well as specialized training in the following programs; Multisensory Reading Instruction, Preventing Academic Failure, and Teaching Basic Writing Skills. In addition, I have an undergraduate degree in English Literature and Writing.

I am a published writer and have been since 2002. My first published work was in the Anthology of short stories by young Americans. My second published work was published in a collection of poems from "On My Mind" in 2007. My last two published works were published in the magazine Total Food Services in 2013.

How did you get started teaching?

[email protected]

I started teaching swimming lessons after parents approached me at the pool where I lifeguarded in college. After teaching 3 students how to swim in 5 sessions, I felt the rewards of teaching. That was when I realized I wanted to be a teacher. 


What types of students have you worked with?

[email protected]

I have worked with students who struggle with language. Many students I have worked with have language learning issues, auditory processing differences, expressive language needs, and writting difficulties. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My 9th grade class is currently writing an argument Essay. I provided students with a resource that I sell on Teachers Pay Teachers. They did an incredible job! These students are all classified and have IEPs. They really were engaged and motivated


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Please check out my website and email me [email protected]

I also have an instagram @MissLeeTeaches


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

[email protected]

They should think about areas that really challenge them. Is it hard to tell mom or dad what is for homework? Is it a challenge when the teacher talks for 30 minutes? Is it a challenge when you have to stay seated? Is following along while others read a challenge?
