About Chris


Bio

I have over ten years of experience teaching and coaching for different organizations, colleges and universities. I have helped administer a tutoring program in St. Louis. I have had success in helping students with whom others were unable to achieve improvement. I get excited when I see students learn to love learning (especially math and literature).

I have over ten years of experience teaching and coaching for different organizations, colleges and universities. I have helped administer a tutoring program in St. Louis. I have had success in helping students with whom others were unable to achieve improvement. I get excited when I see students learn to love learning (especially math and literature).

I began attending college when I was 15 years. I scored high enough on my ACT/SAT exams to earn a full tuition scholarship. I graduated from college top of my class with 3.98 GPA. I currently teach English, math, philosophy, psychology and speech to college students. I adapt my teaching style to the learning style of my students.

I have the most experience with the following subjects:

In philosophy, I have worked on introductory level classes, philosophy of religion and courses on ethical theories and issues.

In English, I have created materials for first year English composition, interpreting religious and intercultural literature.

In math, I tutored students and taught classes on pre-algebra, applied mathematics and beginning algebra.

In psychology, I have covered general psychology, developmental psychology, counseling psychology and sociology and the family.

I enjoy presenting materials on ancient history especially as it relates to Greco-Roman culture, tribal Africa and the Fertile Crescent.

I have two children who are full of energy. I know how to sustain the attention of young minds. Learning is fun!

Great tutor!

I highly recommend Chris as a tutor. Chris responded to my request for tutoring in a matter of hours and he has a wonderful rapport that I believe translates to people of all ages. His ability to connect with his student and his talent at teaching simple concepts, as well as more advanced topics, are both truly superior. He has excellent written and verbal communication skills, and is extremely organized, reliable, and computer literate. Chris is focused on your tutoring needs and accomplishes those tasks with great initiative and with a very positive attitude. I recommend Chris to you without reservation.
