About Chris

I hold a Master's in Writing, a Bachelor's Degree in English, and have over six years teaching experience with students at all levels of education: public elementary schools, two career colleges and a private university, in traditional classrooms and online. I have extensive experience with non-native speakers.

The most productive and meaningful component of my teaching regimen has always been the time I spend working one-on-one with students. It grants me the opportunity to identify and understand their unique strengths and struggles, and to help each of them realize his or her particular goals. I love helping students discover their own voice, and working to find approaches that suit their particular needs and learning styles. I've taught a variety of courses in Analytic Writing, Creative Writing, Basic English, Reading, and Literature.

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.

Public Speaking

As a college instructor I write and deliver lectures on a weekly basis, where it is crucial that I demonstrate the strategies of effective public speaking. Many of the necessary rhetorical skills and techniques for composition also apply to composing strong speeches. Due to my background in Writing, I'm extremely familiar with the fundamentals of argumentation and exposition, and I often tutored Public Speaking students in my previous position at Brown Mackie College.
