About Charles

Hello!

My name is Charlie. I am a graduate from Indiana University with a degree in journalism and am a licensed substitute teacher in Illinois. I grew up in the north shore suburbs of Chicago and have lived in the area my whole life. I truly have a passion for writing and helping people find their own voice in their writing. Finding and communicating your own perspective is the most important step in creating a great piece of writing and helping students find their own is my favorite part of teaching. I proofread papers in high school and in college and also have an extensive knowledge of American and European history.

Reading analysis and literature comprehension is another facet of learning that I am very good at helping students understand. I have had intensive experience in Shakespeare analysis, grammar, and proofreading. I received high marks on both the ACT and the LSAT. Most of all I am doing this because I have a passion for helping people learn and a strong passion for the subject matter. I am easy to get along with and try to make the learning experience enjoyable because that is how I always learned best.

My goal is to help students develop their own writing style and have confidence in the message they are conveying with their assignments. This type of writing helps students gain confidence in their opinions and teaches them that in order to assert an opinion you have to make a solid argument to back up your ideas. The goal is to convince the reader of your point of view and not try and fill up a page with longer words or with what the student thinks the teacher wants to hear.

Please reach out if you need any help at any level of English, grammar, literature comprehension, American history or European history.
