About Chris

I am a senior at IPFW majoring in Economics. I have experience tutoring special needs students in an HSE (GED) program associated with the Literacy Alliance. My two children in elementary are now testing 2-3 years above grade level after struggling before I helped them break thru in areas they had difficulty with. It also helped that I was able to encourage their love of learning and help them to understand more complex topics.

I love working with students to learn topics they struggle with and to find ways to help them understand the material.

Fantastic grades in all of my Economics classes and a passion for the material.

I try to be flexible with time. Though I do ask for a 24 hour notice if a session must be missed.

My goal is to develop a love of learning, effective habits, and strategies within my students for them to be successful in the current subject and others in the future.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Reading

Father of two 4th graders, whom I've helped go from below grad level for reading to above grade level, as well as instilling an insatiable love for reading in my son, as my daughter has always had a great love of reading. I have also tutored HSE (GED) students of various ability levels.

Special Needs

I have a special needs son currently in 4th grade and an autistic stepson currently in high school. I taught the 4th grader how to read when he wasn't understanding what they were teaching him at school. I also have tutored HSE (GED) classes of special needs young adults at my job as a DSP (direct services professional) at our local Arc chapter agency that serves individuals with intellectual and who also often also physical disabilities too.

Chris was patient with our student. He helped take complex economic ideas and make them relevant to her understanding. We plan to continue to have Chris tutor our student. We are seeing immediate improvements in her grades.
