About Christopher

Greetings! My name is Chris, and I am looking forward to working with students desiring to improve their grasp of reading, writing, and the English language. I am a professional editor and tutor in the Metropolitan State University of Denver Writing Center. I'm currently earning my MA in Rhetoric and the teaching of writing. My background and education center on pedagogical approaches to teaching English and Writing with the understanding that individualized lesson plans, based on students' specific learning styles, are the best methods for success. I am passionate about helping students meet their full potential.

In every case, students are not bad learners; they just aren't being taught in a style that utilizes their strengths. I will help students discover their strengths and tailor their lessons to those strengths, so they can be confident in their ability to learn. I've undergone training in identifying students as either auditory, visual, or kinesthetic learners. Each learning style has strengths and weaknesses. After discovering a student's learning style, I adapt the lesson plan to what is most natural for the student. Together, we'll eliminate frustration with trying to learn in non-compatible learning styles, see quicker improvement and understanding with tailored lesson plans, and enjoy discovering long-term methods for retaining information and improving writing.

Thanks for stopping by!
