ExperienceFor two years ('10-'12) I was a chemistry teacher at a local charter school. I taught chemistry on a regular, preAP, and AP level. I have since left the teaching profession to pursue a more research and laboratory based chemistry job, but I still do enjoy tutoring and helping out students.
In the 2011-2012 academic year, I had the opportunity to teach and prepare a set of freshmen students for the STAAR Chemistry EOC (end of course) Exam and 100% of my freshman were able to pass the test in the 11-12 academic year. Even though the state no longer requires the Chem EOC, it was a good experience in prepping students and helping solidify their foundation in chemistry.
I've found tutoring to be a nice outlet my day job. I like helping others out with chemistry immensely and I find it very fulfilling. My general goal with tutoring is to get students to a point where they know how to study, they know what study methods work for them, and they can catch their own mistakes. I want to be confident that when I leave students, they can perform a lot of the tasks required on their own.
I work off hours so my tutoring time is limited to some weekends or early in the morning. I'm not in a place where I can take regular (weekly) students any more because of my schedule. Students that need a single or few sessions are fine. Please email a few days in advance to check on my availability.
Generally, if you need help and you're within a certain school system (ACC, UT) I will direct you to other on-campus sources and will agree to help if you find that extra help is needed.
HobbiesI enjoy reading, logic skill games and puzzles, dancing, volunteering at the animal shelter, cooking, chemistry, and teaching others how to do any of the above listed hobbies.

We have had Christine tutor our 10th grader in PreAP Chemistry. She is on time, responsible and communicative. She was well prepared before coming for tutoring. She made sure our child understood the concepts by giving her homework and tests. Feel so fortunate to have her helping our child who made an A in PreAP Chemistry.
