About Chris

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!

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.

CBEST

I passed all three sections of the CBEST on my first attempt. I scored a 68 on the Math section without any difficulty. I scored a 66 on the Reading section.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) certification which has enabled me to teach at different private schools. I have experience teaching classes with students from third grade through sophomores in high school. In additional to classroom experience, I have helped administer after school tutoring programs for elementary and junior high students.

ESL/ESOL

I have taken courses on teaching ESL at the college level.

Greek

I have taken two years of Greek language courses at the undergraduate level. I have taken other undergraduate and graduate level classes requiring translation activities as a part of the coursework. I can read and translate Greek pieces of literature.

Hebrew

I have taken Hebrew in my undergraduate education and a full year of Hebrew translation work in my graduate degree. I can speak, write and translate Hebrew. A few of my classes involved direct translation work.

Reading

I am a college English instructor and I have taught third grade through college classes.

Study Skills

I have helped administrate a tutoring organization in St. Louis. I have a Master's degree and over 10 years of experience helping struggling students improve their study skills. I have helped students with time management, note taking, testing skills and reading comprehension.
