Christine Kalcic was instrumental to my success at MSU as a premed student. She proved to be an asset to my success during my first semester, and I continued to work with her throughout the rest of my coursework. She is proficient in multiple subjects, and is excellent at breaking down material and getting you caught back up when behind. Christine was invaluable for exam prep and taught the material to truly understand it, not just to pass. Working with her taught me time management and how to approach very complex material and a tough course load. I truly feel very lucky and fortunate to have worked with her. I have recommended her to multiple students of various age, and she has done an excellent job with everyone. There is no way I could have taken on the course load I did without Christine, she is brilliant and just a really awesome and kind person!Nov 17, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $45-55/hr for in-person one-on-one tutoring depending on the subject and distance to the meeting location. Online homework help and answer keys are also possible on a case-by-case basis and start at $30/hr.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I do compare notes with other education professionals on a monthly basis. When I encounter a new technique that has been introduced in a classroom, I research it online, master it myself, and then present my students with several options so they can choose the problem-solving approach that they are most comfortable with. An example of this would be teaching synthetic rather than long division of polynomials. Synthetic division is limited in its applications, but can be a great tool for students who struggle with factoring.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Most often, I work with students on a weekly basis. Our 1-hr tutoring sessions focus on homework help, test prep, and mastering/clarifying topics that the student found to be difficult or confusing in their classroom.
