Hi parents and students,
My name is CJ. I'm 26 years old, have a couple undergraduate degrees and a master's degree in disaster/trauma psychology
from the University of Denver. I've tutored throughout all my years in college. I spent a year teaching preschool
after undergrad and have since worked as a school counselor/educator in an alternative middle-high school (similar to a charter, for students who struggled or were removed from their original placements in public schools). While my degrees are in the liberal arts (major strengths in English
and psychology), my hobbies are in the hard sciences. My father was an actuary (mathematician), and I have tutored math
, etc. for all the years I've been in school (though I aspire to be a psychologist with the WHO/UN). I feel comfortable with nearly every subject and standardized test, and I have experience working with both younger and older students. I'm also an outdoor/active type and will sometimes look for alternative ways to process new information and understand difficult material, so playing basketball
to demonstrate physics, going to the park to realize geometry
, or using the stars to orient (and other such things) will always be options. I've traveled extensively for my age and have lived/traveled in multiple exotic countries for extended periods of time (China, Brazil, Thailand, Egypt, India, Japan, Central America, Europe, etc.). I also speak Spanish
. I mention these items in case your children might enjoy a cultural discussion on a specific location or an orientation to something different.
I hope you might entertain sending me an email
so that we might discuss the potential for tutoring either for the short-term or a more permanent relationship. Cheers.
