Southern Adventist University (Int. Business Mgmt)
Hello my name is Christopher Adam J. and I have been involved with tutoring/teaching for 7 years. My experience started in high school at Georgia-Cumberland Academy with an on-campus job in the campus elementary school, Coble. I tutored 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade math, English, and Spanish. In undergrad I tutored part-time at Collegedale Academy for special needs children with dyslexia, dysgraphia, ADHD, ADD, and aspergers. At that time, I tutored all subjects including French I and Spanish I & II. At the same time, I also tutored beginner Japanese privately for students participating in the Adventist Colleges Abroad program to Chiba, Japan. For the last 3.5 years of undergrad, I worked as an acrobatic gymnastics coach for ages 2 - 22 and have been to many states and countries coaching gymnastics for various school levels (elementary, middle, high, and university). Last year, I moved to Japan and taught English in Hachinohe City, Aomori Prefecture for the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Under the Board of Education I taught four schools; three elementary and one junior high school.
I am passionate about helping others and seeing them succeed. I believe that tutoring goes much further than short-term goals but is meant to give the student a useable tool that they can readily handle. My tutoring/teaching/coaching experience goes without question. What I love most about tutoring is the "aha!" moment on a students face after explaining and reasoning with them. After that, the student is able to complete the exercise with ease. In that moment, as the tutor, I feel that my goal of giving them that tool is being accomplished.
I have taken classes in English Composition, Ethical, Social, and Legal writing, done various research projects presenting findings through college and business level writing, many classes in communication and public speaking as well. I have worked abroad for the Japanese government teaching english at four schools; three elementary and one junior high school, totaling to over 1300 students.
I have studied Japanese since I was in the 5th grade. My interest in Japanese was sparked from watching Aikido, a Japanese-style of martial arts. From that, my interest in the culture and language deepened. In high school I took formal Japanese classes and learned how to write. After graduating high school I moved to Tokyo and attended the International Study Institute of Japan in Shin-Okubo. Throughout undergrad, I kept my ability fresh by tutoring Japanese 1 for students preparing to participate in the Adventist Colleges Abroad program to Japan, participating in local events, being a part of the Asian Club representing Japan, and socializing with various Japanese friends in the community. During the summer of my junior year, I was a project management intern at the Japan-America Society of Georgia in Buckhead. There I worked in an all-Japanese business environment creating events, managing phone calls and projects, assisting in any problems with society members, and taking formal business Japanese classes. After graduating undergrad I moved to Hachinohe City in Aomori Prefecture, Japan to work for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the JET Program for a year. I have passed the intermediate Japanese Language Placement Test, N3, and am currently working towards the next difficulty N2.
My extensive office administration and tutoring history has called for multitasking and project management skills. I have also interned at various companies like CompuCredit, USXpress, the Japan-America Society of Georgia, and O'Shaughnessy & Carter, PLLC as a paralegal. All of these opportunities have given me multi-level project management experience in customer service, case management, people management, client management, advancement, event planning and more.
I look forward to serving your needs passionately and promptly. Please do not hesitate to contact me any day, at any time. I am fairly flexible and would like to converse about scheduling.

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.
