About Christopher


Bio

Just returned home from Vietnam, where I lived for the past eight months. While there, I taught English and test preparation for students in elementary through high school. I received my CELTA (Cambridge University) certification in HCMC for teaching English as a foreign language, and I am now semi-fluent in Vietnamese. Excited to meet you and share some stories about my life in Saigon. :)

I started college at 14 at Cal State LA, and have had a well-rounded education of upper-division...

Just returned home from Vietnam, where I lived for the past eight months. While there, I taught English and test preparation for students in elementary through high school. I received my CELTA (Cambridge University) certification in HCMC for teaching English as a foreign language, and I am now semi-fluent in Vietnamese. Excited to meet you and share some stories about my life in Saigon. :)

I started college at 14 at Cal State LA, and have had a well-rounded education of upper-division English classes (American/Classical Greek literature) and math up to calculus. I ultimately followed my love of plays as a written form and graduated with a BA in Theater Arts.

For the past several years, I've been tutoring privately on the side with students of all ages. At Cal State LA, I was a writing tutor and helped fellow students develop proofreading and revision skills. I also volunteered at the Union Rescue Mission, working with underprivileged children who struggled with reading. I have successfully prepared high school students for the SAT and am very familiar with the material covered. I first took the SAT myself when I was 12 and scored very highly.

I create a respectful and supportive atmosphere, while I help each client accomplish his or her goals. I want my students to have confidence in themselves and their own intelligence. Everyone learns differently; sometimes it just takes someone with the patience to figure out what works best for that individual.

I go out of my way to make problem sets for my students to work on, and I will gladly provide and/or recommend additional material.

Good Experience

This was my first experience with a tutor and I'm glad my mom chose Christopher. He took the time to explain and make sure I understood before moving on. I would recommend his services and will use them again.

Awesome!

Christopher is awesome! He tutored me in English and helped me edit my essay for class, and he gave me tips on how to write better. We also started working on analyzing Hamlet for my next assignment. He gave me some good hints that got me really thinking about the play. I would definitely work with him again.
