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 have graduated from two institutions from the University of Bridgeport with a M.A. in Secondary Education and Quinnipiac University with a B.A. in English
and a minor in Spanish
. 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
, 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
, 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!
