St. Patty's Day with Students.jpg

Hi, I'm Christine Tinsley!

Why Multiple Subjects?


The teachers that influenced me the most had a love and passion for teaching. They made any subject fun! The school library became one of my favorite places to hang out. When I wasn't re-shelving and checking out books I was riding my bike along the Riverside Trail.

I loved growing up in Tulsa and am happy to return to visit my family. But as a teenager, I fell in love with the California lifestyle. Exercising, discovering great little restaurants, cooking at home with my friends, riding my bike along the boardwalk or along the base of the desert mountains. There are  always so many interesting things to do and places to go.


I am proud to be an opening team member of The Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. It was a fantastic place to learn about fine dining, wines, guest services and hospitality management. I still call my students ladies and gentlemen.

Several years of my life were spent representing the national and world ice carving champion. Our clients included Oprah, The Academy Awards, The Golden Globes, Beverly Hills Hotel, The Regent Beverly Wilshire, the Hilton Family  and the finest event planners in the business.

With a hunger for learning and teaching I, became a teacher. I have earned a Clear California Multiple Subject and a Life Science Teaching credentials. My Bachelors is in Liberal Studies and Science with a focus on bioengineering. I also earned a Masters of Science in Education Administration. I have taught all grades kindergarten through eighth grade. The best reward is when students take ownership of their learning and tell me how much they love school.

Extending education beyond the classroom walls, I am also a professional Education Consultant. My clients include The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and The Orange County Great Park. I enjoy researching and writing curriculum for all subjects.

My son, 19 year old Austin, is the best thing that ever happened to me. He has a love of art, classic cars, fashion and history. He is currently studying architecture at College of the Desert.
