"Hello, my name is Christina! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Health & Societies, and concentration in Health Policy and Law, in May of 2018. A little bit about my teaching style: I've always seen every topic as a new avenue of personal exploration. While I consider it necessary to teach in preparation for tests, including strategizing about the specific questions that will likely be asked, I also think it's worth it for your personal development to understand the theory behind every subject. My approach to teaching is applied: through carefully selected problem sets that mimic test and textbook problems, and taking our time to patiently go over incorrect answers, you'll be able to breeze through any problems given to you. But after we complete a problem set, we'll also talk about the theory behind the answers, real life applications, and grasp the true value of the topic. My subject expertise covers a wide variety of topics, but I excel at SAT prep (verbal, writing, and quantitative), writing essays, some specific industry topics including Healthcare Management, History of Law, and Adobe Photoshop.
My experience as a tutor ranges from tutoring ESL to adult professionals at International House for 1 year, to helping edit college application essays and SAT writing samples for 1 year. My students have consistently described our sessions as "fun, engaging... you are the best teacher I've ever had!" As a student myself, I benefited from SAT verbal and SAT quantitative tutoring. Therefore, I understand the importance of strategizing our tutoring sessions for upcoming tests and any problem areas you feel like you have. For the SAT in particular, my qualifications include perfect (800) scores in both Reading and Writing. I can teach you how to understand what the questions in the Reading section are really asking, and proven formats for SAT Writing.
If you feel like you are struggling in class, or like you need an edge in an especially curved or competitive class, please don't hesitate to reach out to me! Together, we can go over difficult material and you will notice a marked increase in your scores. Furthermore, you can eventually use your topic expertise in real life applications such as in personal projects or a job down the line." less...
