About Christopher

Welcome Parents and Students,

My name is Christopher W., and I am a current graduate student at Stony Brook University studying Higher Education Administration while working in Student Support Services for Cheshire Public Schools. I graduated from Quinnipiac University with a B.A. in English and a minor in Spanish. Additionally, I graduated from the University of Bridgeport with a M.A. in Secondary Education. I have worked in the public school system for four years and have gained much experience in tutoring, teaching, and mentoring students in middle and high school levels. I have tutored students in Math, English, Spanish, and History consistently. While I’m not tutoring or teaching, I continue to find areas of improvement in my teaching methods, tutoring techniques, and lesson plans.

I believe that the heart of learning comes from the relationship between a student and teacher. With this belief, I start my tutoring sessions by understanding and gauging who the student is while observing and assessing student strengths and weaknesses. From there, I am able to create a plan that will put the student in a place of success – each plan is differentiated because not one student learns the same way. My expertise is in English, specifically in reading and writing, but I have years of experience in tutoring students in Math, Spanish, and History. I have taught and tutored in plays, novels, short stories, and numerous poems from the Romantic and Neoclassical Period to high school students. I have experience in implementing writing workshops, setting up student portfolios, and creating writing goals to demonstrate student growth over a period of time. In addition, I have tutored in Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Spanish I and II, and History: Revolutionary War, Industrial Revolution, Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War I and II.

I am an avid reader and writer. When I have the chance, I love to read any book that peaks my interest and write on numerous topics. I am a sports addict – could be an understatement – and follow and participate in football, basketball, soccer, weight lifting, and running. Most importantly, I make time for family, friends, and the community!

I am grateful and blessed if you read this far! If you feel that you want to have a conversation about your child, please don’t hesitate to call or email me about an appointment. I hope that you find assets who enhance and guide your child’s skills in their educational career. Thank you!

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.

Algebra 1

I have four years of experience working in secondary education (middle and high school). I understand how to scaffold student learning from all the years I spent in Special Education. I have dealt with many students who have various academic, behavioral, or psychological issues during their educational career. Also, I have constant experience working with numerous curricula which made my teaching skills highly diverse.

Bible Studies

I am a devoted Christian who has been studying the Word for two years. My passion is in learning each book of the Bible. My future plan is to start teaching the Bible at my local church.

Study Skills

I have been in the secondary public school education in the general and special education classrooms. As a tutor, I teach students the proper process to studying and provide them with unique strategies for students. I have taught and modeled study strategies that enhance student test preparations by utilizing reading, speaking, listening, and writing. As a teacher, I have used flashcards, Cornell Notes, and creating practice quizzes with a fundamental focus on sensory learning.
