About Chris

I hold a B.A in English with a minor in Communication from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. In the past, I've worked as an advanced consultant in UCCS's Excel Writing Center. Aside from my academic background, I also have experience in professional writing and administrative roles, including ten years as a web editor for various companies and one year as a senior research fellow with the Institute for Public Dialogue. I'm also a multi-published writer of poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction.

My areas of tutoring expertise include English, reading, grammar, literature, and ACT preparation. I have a great passion for assisting ESL/ELL students and those with learning disabilities.

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.

Guitar

I've been playing guitar in a semi-professional capacity for at least 18 years. Being part of multiple bands and recording projects, I have two official releases that are available through Amazon MP3, iTunes, and other major digital distribution sites. I've also written and recorded several dozen other unreleased songs. At my local church, I currently serve as a worship team member, leading services as a guitarist and vocalist on a weekly basis. I've taught various people how to play guitar and piano throughout this time by way of weekly, one-on-one lessons. My preferred instructional methods are tablature and ear training.
