About Christopher

My name is Chris and I am an outgoing, personable and passionate worker who has a special interest in helping kids succeed. I have always helped the youth through volunteering, coaching, and tutoring. I am a Spanish speaker (not native) and can help younger children in elementary and middle school with classwork, studying for tests, pronunciation, and grammar of the Spanish language.

Currently, I have seven years of supervisory experience as a Control Center Technician in a Corporate setting for Travelers Insurance Company. My position entails supervising over 30 Security Officers and ensuring the safety of thousands of Travelers employees through the Corporate Security Department.

My educational background is from Marist College where I received a double Bachelors of Science degree in Spanish and Criminal Justice. During my studies, I served as a Spanish translator for attorneys in the Dutchess County Public Defender's Office. I also assessed defendants charged with crimes for financial eligibility in order to receive a Public Defender to represent them. In 2006 I lived in Madrid Spain where I attended a Spanish speaking University. I learned a great deal of culture and language during my study abroad in Spain.

I have worked with inner city children (Spanish speaking) at a Astor Head Start Program in Poughkeepsie, NY, Here I learned the value of diversity and its importance in being able to work with, teach, and help children in any capacity to succeed.

Please message me for assistance in tutoring. I can tutor for not only Spanish, but English too. Other subjects available upon request.

Thanks
Chris

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.

Spanish

I am fluent in Spanish and worked both in a professional environment and teaching atmosphere speaking in Spanish. My experience also extends to living abroad in Spain. I prefer elementary and middle school aged students pursuing Spanish as a language of study.
