Christie reviews students’ progress in Excellerate and makes recommendations to the academic coaches at our Glenview Learning Studio. She has been tutoring and teaching K-12 students since 1994 and excitedly reports that her students gained confidence and ended up liking the subjects she tutored. She saw their grades rise from C’s and D’s to A’s and students advance to the next level of their classes. “I am able to assess children’s understanding of and attitude toward a subject,” Christie said. “This allows me to pinpoint children’s needs and find the best ways to teach and engage the children.” Christie studied French and English Literature in Korea and earned her teaching certificate at Harper Community College.
