About Charles

Hi there!

I'm interested in becoming your tutor. After my undergraduate career at the University of Iowa, where I excelled in English and Spanish, I recently moved to New York to pursue my passion: teaching. As an undergraduate, I wrote my senior thesis under the tutelage of a permanent faculty member of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, the Pulitzer-winner James McPherson, and I took away from Iowa a strong sense of the instruction available at the graduate level.

Not only a skilled writer, I am also an experienced teacher. I spent my junior year of college in Madrid, where I became bilingual and discovered a love for teaching. While enrolled in a college-certified ESL course, I tutored a Spanish couple in English for five months. The experience was so rewarding that, during my final semester of college, I flew to Bogota, Colombia to work as a tutor for the company Inter Link English, helping Colombian executives learn a second language. I loved my job, and, now in New York, I hope my teaching days aren't behind me!

Currently, I'm enrolled in a CELTA-certification program, and I plan to earn, within the next five years, separate master's degrees in English Literature and ESL Instruction. However, my knowledge extends beyond just English and Spanish: I'm a scholar of history, literature, reading, and grammar. What's more, I'm flexible, reliable, punctual, and entirely available. I would be an enthusiastic teacher, and I look forward to committing to you for as long as you need.

Thanks for your time! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I am currently enrolled in a CELTA program in New York City, which will conclude by January, 2011. CELTA is a world-recognized ESL certificate, earned after four weeks of intensive study. I hope to eventually use the CELTA diploma in order to apply for graduate school in ESL training.

Moreover, I've worked as an ESL teacher in Spain and Colombia for a total of seven months. Now in New York, I hope my teaching days aren't behind me!
