About Chris

I am currently working on my Master's Degree in Education with a teaching certification. I have a Bachelor's degree in History with a minor in Political science. I am currently an employee at the City of Gaithersburg, and I work as the primary History specialist for the middle school students. Additionally, I have worked with ESOL students at Gaithersburg High School, working on reading, writing, and speaking.

I love teaching and tutoring, watching students grow is one of the most rewarding parts on my interactions with them. I use patience and understanding to ensure my students have an environment to succeed. I am comfortable helping students from grades 6-12.

I passed Methods of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) with an A for the course. Additionally, I have had over 2.5 years of tutoring and in-class volunteering for ESOL students ranging from levels 2-5.

I graduated Cum Laude with a GPA of 3.6 from UMBC with a Bachelor's Degree in History. I have assisted middle school students for 2.5 years with history at the Olde Towne Youth Center. I have advanced skills in Disciplinary Thinking Skills and Concepts of Social Studies. Lastly, I have experience in writing lesson plans that follow Maryland State Curriculum Standards.

Please contact me if any of these strengths match your needs as I am always willing to working with any level of student!

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.

American History

I am a qualified American History teacher because I have a Bachelor's degree in History. I currently serve as the primary History tutor at a Youth Center. I like to focus on reading, writing, and thinking like a historian when doing history assignments.

ESL/ESOL

I believe that I can successfully tutor ESOL students because I have 2.5 years of classroom experience. Additionally, I have experience using the SIOP model of instruction for ESOL students, with an emphasis on scaffolding. While tutoring I prefer to use visual aids and repetition of key vocabulary as it relates to specific assignments.

World History

I am a qualified World History teacher because I have a Bachelor's degree in History. I specialized in both European and Middle Eastern History, with some general detail in Chinese and Japanese History. I like to focus on reading, writing, and thinking like a historian when doing history assignments.
