TUTORING TESTIMONIALS

“Our two children had regular tutoring sessions with Christine Younghusband from grades 8 to 11.  Their biggest challenge was keeping up with the classroom pace of moving through the curriculum. They needed more time and one-on-one support than their  teachers were able to provide. As a result of their sessions with Christine, they developed confidence and strategies and both achieved success. They were comfortable asking for her help and they always got the help they needed. Christine creates an environment that is relaxed and fun but also focused and productive.”

Jane Davidson, parent of 2 high school students, September 2015


“We have used Christine for the last 3 years for tutoring our high school student in Math. Christine quickly found a way to connect with our son that allowed him engage and learn more successfully. Thanks to Christine’s tutelage, our son has gone from a C- in Grade 7 Math to a B in Math 11. We are so very grateful for her experience and her ability to see that each student is unique and that we do not all learn the same way. ”

 Chris McNair, parent of high school student, September 2015


“I can say, without any exaggeration, that Christine Younghusband is the best math tutor/guru I have ever had. Her determination to help me understand the concept and reasoning behind a problem is one of her most valuable qualities… I can never thank YH enough and I highly recommend her to any student looking to improve their math skills. Thanks for helping me with everything, I really appreciate it.”

Madolyn Smith, High School Student, Math 12, November 2012


“I am so happy to say that I finished my last test and the teacher was nice enough to mark my last assignment and exams right away as the nursing school has only 3 seats left.  I received an overall 80%, so much better than I anticipated.  I am super happy and very thankful for our sessions together.”

Shannon Starrs, Foundations Math 11, Adult Learner, March 2014


“I visited Ms. Younghusband before many of my math 12 tests and exams for tutoring. I found it extremely helpful because she touched on all the right points and worked out any issues I had with the material. I would recommend any student who is having trouble with math to contact Ms. Younghusband.”

“Being tutored by Christine Younghusband has been a very positive experience for me. The amount of information that I learned definitely exceeded my expectations. Christine always made math enjoyable, something that I didn’t feel before. Above all, I have much more confidence in my own math abilities.”

Oliver Gidora, Adult Learner, University Preparation, August 2012


“I am writing this testimonial in regards to Christine Younghusband’s math tutoring business. Christine is an excellent tutor and has great rates. I enlisted the help of Christine for my grade 12 year, where she assisted me many times throughout my math 12 class. She helped me understand the concepts I as being taught on a personal level. She made it easy for me to remember formulas and techniques. This made me a better test taker and improved my mark greatly. Being someone who struggled with math throughout high school, working with Christine was a blast. She is fun and relaxed. I throughly enjoyed my time spent with Christine. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor.”

Abbotsford Traditional School, BCAMT Conference, October 2010


“I am inspired by Christine Younghusband’s enthusiasm and unique approach to teaching mathematics. Embedded within Indigenous knowledge, her humour, honesty and storytelling put me at ease and created a space where I felt safe and a sense of belonging. Not only was the content of her lesson very interesting, she also modelled important pedagogical methods of how to approach learners of Aboriginal descent, engaging in relationship first, and then moving into the teachings.”

Kristi Haavisto, UBC Aboriginal Math K-12 Symposium, February 2013
