About this tutor

With an undergraduate degree in English literature in writing and a graduate degree in English Education and Students with Disabilities, I am equipped to prepare all students for academic success.  I specialize in a highly effectiving writing program called Teaching Basic Writing Skills for the secondary level.

I can help support students' writing skills in their journey to become "college-ready." By providing planning, outlining, organizing, writing, revising, and editing strategies, students will feel confident in their writing.  In addition, I can offer assistance in homework and assignment completion. 

I am happy to provide references upon request. 

Seeing students' confidence in their reading and writing skills is what I enjoy most about the work I do. Helping students achieve academic success is the reason I became a teacher.

    Ms. Lee is patient, articulates well, and makes the difficult easy to understand. She goes above and beyond after-hours addressing emails and concerns.

    Christina worked with my daughter who struggles in ELA. Christina was patient and understanding of my daughters needs and was able to, after a few minutes of working with her, know exactly what her strengths and weaknesses were. Christina has a way of teaching that is completely engaging, bringing excitement into learning. My daughter has made wonderful progress since working with Christina and has been able to use the skills taught to her in her other classes. Christina’s love for teaching and her love for kids is overwhelming evident and her skill for recognizing and meeting a student’s need is exceptional. My daughter loves every minute she spends with Christina and has a renewed confidence in learning thanks to Christina. I highly recommend Christina!!!!



FAQs


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

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?

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?

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?

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.
