About Charissa

I am a magna cum laude graduate of Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and I have completed a TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification. My employment history has been diverse, including eight years as a Jet Engine Mechanic in the Air Force National Guard, Case Management/Coordination in the social services industry and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Operations. These jobs included various training and education processes for myself as well as in an instructor role.

My tutoring experience has mostly been with Junior High and High School students, covering a range of subjects as needed for each individual. Some students struggle with understanding concepts and ideas and I can assist in finding ways to make sense of the material for that student. Other students lack organization and study skills and need help learning “how” to study and succeed in the educational process. In addition, there are some students that simply don’t want to do the work and need someone to help them through the process to make learning more exciting and a rewarding process. While completion of homework, grasping material and successful grades are the primary focuses, teaching study skills, organization and instilling a love of knowledge are also personal goals with my students. Wherever you are or your student is, I would love the opportunity to help you not only learn more, but to grow as an individual and become successful in your education and future employment.

I enjoy the challenge of helping people understand algebraic formulas and taking an often overwhelming subject and breaking it down into manageable pieces.

The rules of the English language provide the same challenges in many ways, with the added bonus of then injecting a students' style and tone into his or her writing, helping to find his or her voice.

I also love working with younger students, constructing the building blocks upon which all their future learning will stand. Whatever age group or subject I try to understand the student first, meet them in their point of development, and then help them grow.

Contact me with any questions you may have and I would love to arrange a time to dive into a wonderful world of learning with you or your student!

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

I attended Point Loma Nazarene University, a Christian school which required not only chapel attendance in which the Bible was taught, but specific "Bible" courses were required for graduation: Old Testament, New Testament, Philosophy and Theology. In addition to the University level teachings I was raised a Pastor's daughter, exposed to multiple sermons each week, participating in Bible Quizzing Teams and competitions, and voluntarily studying the Bible. As an adult I have continued to participate in Church and Bible Study groups where the focus is not just the "spiritual aspect" of Christianity, but the Bible's overall content and historical context.

Sociology

Prior to choosing Psychology as my undergraduate major, I began in the Sociology department as a Social Work major. My semesters spent in the department yielded a 4.0 GPA, implying that I did pay attention and learn something during that time. I understand the concepts and goals and terminologies of the realm of Sociology and am capable of assisting students' in their studies of this.
