Welcome Parents and Students,
My name is Christopher W. and I am a current tutor who is a passionate, patient, and flexible educator and available to help students with their education. I graduated from Quinnipiac University with a B.A. in English and a minor in Spanish. I recently graduated from the Internship program at the University of Bridgeport with a M.A. in Secondary Education. I have worked in the public school system for three years and have gained much experience in tutoring and teaching students in middle and high school levels. I have tutored students in Math, English, Spanish, and History respectively. While I am not tutoring or teaching, I continue to find areas of improvement in my teaching methods, tutoring techniques, and lesson plans.
I believe that the heart of learning comes from the relationship between a student and teacher. With this belief, I start my tutoring sessions by understanding and gauging who the student is while observing and assessing their strengths and weaknesses. From there, I am able to create a plan that will put the student in a place of success. My expertise is in English, specifically in reading and writing, but I have years of experience in tutoring students in Math, Spanish, and History. I have taught many novels in the classroom and tutored students in plays, novels, short stories, and numerous poems from the Romantic and Neoclassical Period. I have experience in implementing writing workshops, setting up student portfolios, and creating writing goals to demonstrate student growth over a period of time. In addition, I have tutored in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Spanish I and II, and History: Revolutionary War, Industrial Revolution, Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War I and II.
I am an avid reader; I love to read any book that peaks my interest. Additionally, I am a sports addict – could be an understatement – and follow and participate in football, basketball, soccer, weight lifting, and running. Most importantly, I make time for family, friends, and the community!
I am grateful and blessed if you read this far! If you feel that you want to have a conversation about your needs, please don’t hesitate to email me for an appointment. Thank you!
