About Chad

I am a graduate of Portland State University (PSU) who holds a Master's degree in English. My key teaching experience and pedagogical qualifications include the following:

-I recently served as an Adjunct Professor of English with the University of Alaska (UA). Working on the Mat-Su College campus, I also served UA as a tutor. I left UA in May of 2015 to move back to "the lower 48" with my wife and infant daughter.

-I have owned and operated my own private tutoring business since 2011. I also work as a freelance writer. Past tutoring employers include the Elite Learing Acadmey in Hillsboro, Oregon and Club Z Tutoring Services in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

-I held a graduate position as a Teaching Assistant at PSU, where I aided a tenured professor in the creation and execution of an undergraduate course in English Literature.

-I was honored with Portland State’s Phillip Ford Award for outstanding essay writing in 2011.

-I honed my K-12 teaching skills as a Physical Education/Aquatics Instructor at the Mittleman Jewish Academy, where I planned and taught physical education lessons for classes of 25 to 35 lower-elementary students and provided small class instruction and one-on-one instruction for students ranging in age from preschool to high school. Also gained experience working with students with special needs.

If you want a mature, experienced tutor who can offer valuable blend of scholastic experience and pedagogical acumen, then I am your man! If you want an exciting and entertaining communicator who can tailor his educational message to all personality types, ages, and skill levels, then look no further!

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.

English

As a recent graduate of Portland State’s graduate program in English Literature with a long career history in media and communications, I am confident in my ability to provide clear and targeted instruction to English students of all levels.

I would be grateful for the opportunity to meet and discuss your specific English tutoring needs. Thank you for your consideration.

Writing

I am an accomplished freelance writer and an award-winning academic essayist who excels in all aspects of language arts from copywriting to literary and critical theory. In addition to sharpening my writing and teaching skills, my professional and academic background has also proven my ability to multitask and work effectively under high-pressure, time-sensitive conditions.
