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. I have also taught psychology at the graduate level. In addition, I have 200+ hours tutoring through Wyzant.

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.

Grammar,

Grammar

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.
Proofreading

Proofreading

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.

Flexible, accessible, knowledgeable, and super at ease with my anxiety!

Cristofre was exceedingly patient when it came to guiding me back to the prompt over, and over, and over. I really need extra help focusing on organizational issues when it comes to writing and making sure I am clearly able to articulate what I understand. He helped clarify a number of concepts and has always been prompt in contacting me when I've asked for a lesson. I feel so fortunate to have found him and look forward to working with him again.

Magnum, 7 lessons with Cristofre

Knowlegable and helpful tutor

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.

Heinz, 5 lessons with Cristofre

Cris is a serious and great tutor!

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.

Ran, 12 lessons with Cristofre

Helpful tutor

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.

Jonny, 2 lessons with Cristofre

Very reliable and has a lot of patience

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.
