About Charles

I am an experienced educator teaching both high school and middle school, but specialize in middle school humanities (social studies and English.) Having taught 7th grade social studies over the last five years I recognize the challenges of the middle school years both developmentally and academically. From my teaching experience I have developed a variety of effective strategies to help students improve their reading comprehension, writing skills, inferential and critical thinking skills, in both social studies and English.

I am experienced as a Literacy Leader in the school district where I used to work, and have worked providing reading and writing support for English. As a Literacy Leader I presented to the school community on research and best practices for vocabulary acquisition, improving reading ability and literacy strategies for accessing complex texts.

Having taught 7th grade social studies for the last five years, and working as a high school history teacher before that, I have a strong background in American History, African History, and European Colonial History.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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

I taught 7th grade social studies for 4 1/2 years. The curriculum that I taught was not based in a textbook, but created by my colleagues and I. Collaboratively creating a rigorous and creative curriculum illustrates my mastery of the content and an ability to tutor. Also, I am a member of the National History Honors Society and I double majored in History and Secondary Education for my Bachelor's degree.
