About Christian

I am a recent graduate of FIU's honors college with a BA in English Literature. I am a first generation college graduate, and I am also a native Spanish speaker. I am available to tutor in English literature, reading and writing, essay research and writing, Spanish language acquisition, Spanish language improvement, and conversational Spanish or English. I can tutor either English to Spanish, or Spanish to English. I am also willing to work with any age learners and at varying levels of comprehension.

While at FIU I was a "Writing Fellow" at the Center for Excellence in Writing for two semesters. During that time I assisted first year college students with essay writing and other literature assignments. I was also a teacher's assistant for a Creative Nonfiction course. In 2015 I presented at ARCH (Advanced Research and Creativity in Honors) and earlier in 2016 I also presented at CUR (Conference for Undergraduate Research).

Please feel free to message me any questions you might have about the process or services I offer. My schedule fluctuates somewhat from week to week but I am almost always available evenings and weekends.

I am confident, regardless of what level your student is currently at, that I will be able to offer some assistance. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

I have three years of experience with Algebra 1. I also took more advanced forms of algebra while in the University, and successfully completed them.

Some of the subjects I helped tutor as a writing fellow included American and European history. I have also taken history classes at the Honors College of FIU and have aced each of them.
