SCSU (Secondary Ed English)
Hello. My name is Chris, and I have been teaching for 17 years, mainly in a private school. During the summer, I have also tutored many of my students or those who never had me as a teacher, in grammar, literature, or verbal SAT prep. I have many years of experience both in the classroom, as well as outside of it. I have coached freshman soccer, moderated Student Government, and mentored incoming teachers new to my former school.
If I am chosen to tutor you, you will receive nothing less than my best. I am a perfectionist, and I will push you to your limits so that you can succeed in whatever facet of Language Arts whether it's grammar, composition, SAT prep, or something related to those. I don't want to scare you away, either. I am a professional, and I am compassionate, and I am willing to move at any pace that you think is necessary in meeting your goal(s), whatever it, or they might be.
I have been in the profession for the last 17 years, and during the summers I have successfully tutored students who were weak during the academic year in English Grammar, Writing, or SAT Prep.
To any prospective student(s) that I might have the honor of tutoring, just know that I will give 100% effort during every session that we meet, and that I will try to accommodate your schedule as best as I possibly can.

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.
My strengths include, but are not limited to: comprehension, note-taking, test-taking strategies in American, British, or World Lit, composing expository essays, preparing for the verbal component of the SAT, Grammar and vocabulary enrichment.
I have been teaching Grammar for 17 years in a private school setting. It has been one of my major strengths, as far back as elementary school. I love teaching Grammar. To me, it's almost like solving a math problem; even the reasoning is solving one is similar to solving a math problem, in my opinion.
I have been teaching either American, British, or World Literature for 17 years. My top two choices would be teaching/tutoring American, followed by British, and then World. It is my favorite component of teaching Language Arts.
Reading naturally goes along with writing, and, as an avid reader, even outside of the classroom, it is a subject that I feel I have plenty of expertise in. I taught Reading and Composition as an independent subject in high school, so I'm adept at creating lesson plans for it and garnering success. I have been teaching Reading for 17 years.
I have been teaching Writing for 17 years. I actually enjoy teaching various types of writing, especially expository and creative writing, as I spend a lot of time with my students in explaining that writing is a slow process and cannot be mastered in a short period of time. It is one of my major strengths outside of the classroom as well.
