I have a Ph.D. In philosophy and have taught classes such as critical thinking (informal logic), intro to philosophy, ethics, political philosophy, and the German idealists. The humanities courses I have taught encompass a variety of disciplines, including sociology, art history, literature, anthropology, and film. In addition, I have taught psychology at the graduate level.
In any of the subjects I teach, my primary concern is how well the student learns the subject matter, and as such I tailor my approach to the specific needs and strengths of the student. There is no cookie cutter mold for how an individual student learns. Hence I adapt how I teach to each student's particular way of learning, including the strengths and weaknesses of the individual.

Cris is a wonderful tutor. His insight into my program, help with my paper and reassurances when I am full of anxiety about my topic makes him worth every cent he is paid. He is an asset to anyone that works with him.
Knowledgeable and very supportive. Efficient and very accessible . Place no time restraint to helping. Thourough with instructions and teachings. Good grade results with the work through him.
Cristofre has been helping me prepare for the analyzing and interpreting literature Clep exam. He is very knowledgeable and goes in to depth about the pieces of writing we are working on. He has been very helpful in making me comprehend and feel confident in interpreting literature. If I don't understand a poem for example he will go line by line explaining the meaning for me. He has challenged my way of thinking in a positive manner. I would whole heartedly recommend him to tutor for a variety of subjects as he has outstanding general knowledge.
Amazing professor, had really helped understand a lot of complex concepts for my philosophy class. Greatly recommended!! He is an awesome person and always willing to help, i'' a business major and I have improved a lot in my class with his tutoring!
I had a philosophy lesson with Cris and he was very patient in explaining. I asked a few questions in the session. He answered with words well understood by me. For this week's lesson, he is quite helpful on instructions on how to write a philosophy essay for a philosophy major admission. He even offered to find sample essays for me to analyse in the next session.
Cristofre helped me develop greater reasoning and organizational skills in my writing. His background in logic was perfect for helping me formulate effective policy papers for my job. Additionally, he was generous with his tutoring service, as he read and annotated papers I sent him on his own time.
I recommend him to anyone interested in becoming a better writer.
My daughter was very happy after her first lesson with Cristofre K. She felt very accomplished and told me she felt as if a huge weight had been lifted off her shoulders. Cristofre is incredibly understanding and very thorough, and that's highly appreciated.
This reviewer highly endorses this tutor. I approached Cristofre seeking help with my thesis and writing samples for graduate applications and Cristofre's positive influence has extended well beyond these areas. By facilitating a fecund exchange of ideas, maintaining a rigorous dialogue about the work, and sharing academic resources Cristofre has helped me to clarify and articulate my arguments and has supported me in taking stronger and more professional approaches to my research and writing styles. If you are seeking help social science or the humanities at any level Cristofre will be a significant support.
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.
Taught online courses for Colorado Technical University in Anthropology, under the rubric of the Humanities, called World Cultures & Values. Used the textbook: "Culture Counts: A Concise Introduction to Cultural Anthropology," with supplemental writings, including: "The Pirahã" by Daniel Everett; Malinowski on "Science & Magic"; "The Relation of Habitual Thought and Behavior to Language" by Benjamin Whorf; and "Body Ritual Among the Nacirema" by Horace Miner.
With a PhD in philosophy, and having taught humanities courses for a number of years, I have taught a wide range of what are usually called classics. Works taught - and this is not an inclusive list - include, in the realm of philosophy: Plato's dialogues ("The Republic," etc.), Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Hume, and John Stuart Mill. In the realm of literature, I have taught Sophocles, Aeschylus, Shakespeare, Melville's "Moby-Dick" and "Bartleby the Scrivener," Edgar Allan Poe, William Golding, and Cormac McCarthy.
I have 15+ years teaching, which includes editing and correcting grammatical errors or simply confusing constructions. In every paper I grade or review, I always check for correct grammar. In fact, part of the points for any given paper consist of the use of correct grammar. If a student has a problem, I will go through the paper line by line to show her what grammatical mistakes were made and ways to fix those errors.

I have 15+ years in grading undergraduate and post-graduate writing; this includes correcting grammar, spelling, and evaluating the overall internal logic of papers. I have also worked in the not-for-profit sector, where I had to both write and evaluate a wide variety of written work.
I have over fifteen years of experience in reading and grading student papers, both in undergraduate and graduate school. I grade not only for content, but also grammar, spelling, style, and the internal logical coherence of the student's writing. I have also written numerous lesson plans for students from K-12, mainly geared for students in CPS schools.
My expertise in sociology is part and parcel with my qualification in social studies. As mentioned, I have taught excerpts from Max Weber's "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism," Marx's "The Communist Manifesto," Freud's "Civilization and its Discontents," Stanley Milgram's "Obedience to Authority," Putnam's "Bowling Alone," and Jane Jacobs's "The Death and Life of Great American Cities."
