My name is Chris. I am currently in my second year of teaching 4th grade at an elementary school. I have experience teaching high-achieving learners in math and reading. Watching students grow and reach their full potential is a staple to my teaching philosophy. I am constantly making efforts in my classroom to ensure that learning is differentiated for all of my students. All students deserve teaching and learning that will meet their individual needs.
As far as tutoring, I have experience tutoring in a school setting as a teacher and also with students outside of school, during my time as a college student. I believe that it is important to build a relationship and rapport between the tutor and student in order to have successful tutoring sessions. I am excited to be a helpful tutor for any area in elementary education. Please contact me about tutoring! I would love to be the next role model and difference maker in your child's life!

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.
In the Mankato School District, our instruction is directly aligned with the Common Core Standards in reading. We use Benchmark and additional materials to meet the rigor of the Common Core Standards. I have put in a great deal of hours dissecting these standards as well.
I am currently a 4th grade teacher at an elementary school. I have a current Minnesota K-6 teaching license. This is my second full year at this school. We use the RTI framework for differentiation at our school.
