About Chris

I'm a young professional who has spent the past year working in marketing. I recently returned to my native Orange County after living in Alabama for more than 15 years, and I'm using the extra time I have while I try changing fields to tutor. As someone who has always had a passion for education, I admire the people willing to ask for help learning something important or just looking to teach themselves something new.

I have a degree in Political Science and a minor in English. Subjects related to government/history and writing/grammar are my strongest points, but I was always an excellent student in math and sciences. I have also passed the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT) as part of the hiring process with the US State Department.

My experience in education in somewhat varied. I spent several summers and weekends at Camp ASCCA - a camp for children and adults with mental and physical disabilities - in addition to working with college students at my university's transfer student orientation program and with children and adults of all ages and nationalities at the US Space & Rocket Center.

When tutoring, I like communicating with my students about their motivations and specific goals during their learning experience to help craft a reasonable plan for maximizing our time together. I also think it's important to be consistently keeping parents (of young students) aware of exactly how the student is progressing and I like to include them in the learning process whenever possible.

Kid Friendly — Immediately my son took to Chris and his personality. Chris has that big brother attitude and I was pleased to find out that a teacher is in his immediate family. My son can be very "creative" when it comes to reasons NOT to do homework so I am looking forward to Chris pushing my son to be at his best. ...
