About Charles

I have ten years of experience as a tutor/educator at Napa Valley College (1974-1984), Napa, California; one year teaching English as a Second Language in Germany (Frankfurt, 1985); five and a half years as a Spanish-speaking paraprofessional (St. Helena High School, St. Helena, California 2005-2011). I also have over 20 years in radio and television work, largely writing and producing commercials, but also live on-air.
The great joy of tutoring is seeing the delight of students once they've internalized new information, made it their own, integrated it into their learning system. There are few things more rewarding than new knowledge.

Extensive experience: helping students achieve college level basic skills in English (grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and composition), as a professional writer (two national awards) and as a proofreader/editor.

As much as I want my students to learn what is necessary, I want them even more to understand! Knowing information will help you pass a test; but understanding improves your life in countless positive ways.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Social Studies

My professional history includes 10 years of tutoring community college students in such subject as Women's Studies and Black Studies, along with all the usual history and government courses, as well as 5 1/2 years working with high school students by attending their classes every day, classes which perforce included history and social studies.
