About Charles

Hi,
I graduated from Ithaca College with a Bachelor of Arts in Writing in 2007 and received my Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate in 2009. Prior to becoming a tutor, I spent time living and teaching in Busan, South Korea. I have taught and tutored students from kindergarten through high school in a wide variety of subjects including English, math, history and test prep. Currently, I am teaching English as a foreign language to adults. In addition to teaching, I enjoy writing and traveling and have spent time backpacking through South America and Asia.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I spent a year working in Busan, South Korea, where I was teaching English at a private school for Korean children. My classes varied in age, size, and ability. During the mornings I taught a kindergarten class, the main focus of which was reading, writing, and phonics. In the afternoon I had several older groups of students, ranging from 4th to 12th grade, as well as one-on-one tutoring sessions. The subjects in the afternoon ranged from math, to science, to grammar.

I have 3 years experience tutoring elementary math to students in 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.

ESL/ESOL

In addition to teaching English as a foreign language, I have spent the last 18 months teaching English to foreign professionals.

Literature

In 2003 I graduated from Ithaca College with a BA in Writing with a concentration in creative writing. I took many literature and poetry classes, including poetics in which I studied the history of literary criticism.

Phonics

I am very familiar with multiple phonics systems, including Plus Phonics and English Land. I taught phonics for both full classes and one on one tutoring sessions. I also have experience working with a variety of age groups and levels of ability, from beginner to advanced.
