About Christopher

I teach from a life-long love of learning. In my experience as both an educator and a student, it is working smarter not necessarily harder that produces lasting personal, academic, and professional rewards.

I enjoy coaching rather than tutoring students to achieve success since I aim to provide the student with the lasting tools and skills to use on their own throughout their academic and professional careers.

I have earned a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, a national ranked top 50 program according to U.S. & World Reports. In addition, I have an M.A. in Philosophy and a Graduate Certificate in Urban Planning from San Jose State University and a Graduate Certificate in Community College Teaching from California State University-Dominguez Hills.

Since 2009, I have been teaching critical thinking, logic, ethics, comparative religion, and introductory philosophy, for several local and national colleges and universities that include Southern New Hampshire University, Northern Virginia Community College, Ashford University, DeVry University, San Jose/Evergreen Valley College District and Gavilan College District. I am comfortable in either an online or a traditional classroom setting.

I have played chess for approximately 26 years. I am not a Chess master but a good player than can challenge most other players and can teach the basics needed to be a confident, focused chess player. For many people chess can be both a meditative and relaxing break from our overly multi-media saturated world where feeling present and focused is most lacking. Since 2012, I have taught enrichment chess classes for the Oak Grove School District for students in small groups on a weekly basis.

I try to be flexible with my time, but I do have a 8-hour cancellation policy. If a scheduled session is canceled less than 8 hours prior to the time scheduled, I will access a $20 late cancellation fee. If there a no-show to a scheduled session, I will charge the agreed hourly session rate in full.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your academic needs and goals and to schedule lessons.

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.
