About Charles

At undergrad, I was trained as a teacher of The English Language and Literature in English. I am currently completing two Master's Degrees at two world-class schools. I have been involved in teaching, writing and public speaking since the late '90s. This is something that I am passionate about and I doggedly pursue it week-in-and-week-out. I consider myself as a transformational teacher who wants to know the goals, fears, interests and aspirations of students with respect to subject matter. My job is to simply help, and empower the student to achieve that goal with creative pedagogical skills. At undergrad, I was trained as a teacher of The English Language and Literature in English.

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.

Bible Studies

Since 1998, I have been privileged to be involved in teaching, preaching, and exhorting. I have been privileged to be part of local congregations, observed the status quo; preached sermons that have helped to correct some of those negative and uncreative prevailing state of affairs.
Being the founder and chief communicator at Way of Hope International Ministries, one of my chief roles is teaching the Bible. In my current Master's of Christian Education Program at Bethel Seminary, I have completed 84 credits and have three more courses to go.

Public Speaking

I have been involved in effective public speaking since 1998. While serving as a communicator of a local organization in my country of origin, I consistently spoke to my audience three times every week over a period of a couple of years. While doing my undergraduate work, I served as the secretary for the student body of the University, which required a lot of public speaking in press conferences, general meetings, and so forth.

From 1998 till date, I have been involved in public speaking and writing almost every week, and the numerous communications courses that I have taken as a graduate student have helped me trim my public speaking skills. Lest I forget, my booming voice is one of my cherished public speaking assets!

Writing

I have done robust and extensive writing for the past eight years - including numerous academic papers, capstones, corporate documents, business plans, funding proposals for businesses and non-profits, and much more. Without any presumptions, I am confident that I can effectively and efficiently tackle any piece of writing that I face.

I have had the immense privilege of tackling very complex writing projects; I have been entrusted with writing projects such that I never knew where to start, but banking on my versatility, putting my research skills to work and investing the necessary time helped me to pull them through. As a lifetime learner, I try to hone my writing skills each and every day. One of my previous professors wrote on one of my papers saying, “I wish every graduate student wrote like you!” It is humbling and encouraging!
