About Christopher

I work best with under-performing students who are frustrated with learning. I realize that tutoring is more than just having the answers to questions in classes, but is developing methods and strategies to help students attack areas of study where they have historically struggled. I am excited when students who have said "I can't", understand that they can. As a teacher for students with exceptionalities, in addition to helping a student understand subject material, I also focus on a student's executive functioning skills and help to identify strategies to develop a more confident learner.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADHD

I currently teach in a self-contained class setting. Students have been identified with ED and OHI-ADD/ADHD. I am a licensed 3rd year special education teacher, finishing up my last course towards getting MA in Special Education.

Phonics

I am finishing up my graduate work at the University of Saint Joseph and have completed coursework in reading interventions, linking assessments with instruction. During these courses I worked with students developing reading interventions after assessing a students phonological awareness.

Special Needs

I am a licensed teacher of students with exceptionalities. I am have a Master's Degree in Special Education where I studied learning disabilities in literacy. I have experience tutoring students with anxiety disorders and have taught classes with students who have been identified with Emotional Disturbance, Learning Disorder and Multiple Disabilities. I have taught Chemistry, Physical Science & Basic Engineering in a self-contained setting, as well as a Reading Intervention class for struggling readers.

Study Skills

I have an MA in Special Education. Teaching exceptional learners, I work with students to identify deficits in executive functioning and develop strategies to strengthen areas of deficits.
