About Christopher

In May, I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Literature and Historical Studies. I've been working on my degree for four years and am currently working towards being a teacher. I am in search of a graduate school and am working toward that goal along with the ability to teach while working toward a certification. I have experience in grammar, in writing, and in literary comprehension along with a working knowledge of historical studies because it was my minor.

Also, I bring a bit of life experience with me. Since I am an older person who has spent several years conducting training programs for various employers, I have the ability to adapt to several types of students who may need many different teaching styles. The reason I would like to tutor is that I want my students to succeed. Their needs will come before mine and I can adapt my lesson to fit their needs.

I hold a degree in Literature, I have published a book of poetry, and I continue to write for both business and pleasure. I love the English language and value its use and necessity within society. I see that the better a person can communicate with others, the more successful that person can be.

I've always been a fan of history, so it was only natural that I should minor in History. I love the narrative that is History and find the fun in history is being able to tell the story in interesting ways while still asking the important questions, like why.

If you are struggling in English or in Social Studies, I would love for you to contact me so I can help you renew an interest in these subjects. If you are not interested in these subjects and are struggling, I would like to help you develop methods to make your academic career as well rounded as possible.
