About Chris

I have been teaching for about 7 years in various grades and learning abilities. I have enjoyed working will all students because it made me appreciate what it is like to be a learner. I have adapted many different styles and means to get students to not only understand the material but apply it as well. I love watching students learn but know that it is process. I will not rush that process, because it would be a disservice to all involved. I have a passion for teaching and watching students grow and become successful.

I am a fun and energetic teacher that thinks all students can learn, no matter what. I think learning is fun and I like to have fun while I teach. Students love to be in my class because I do more than just read out of a book. The more hands on the material, the more the student will get out of the lesson. I think when you apply a real world application to anything the material becomes meaningful and the student will value the learning process.

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.

Basketball

I have been playing basketball for many years now. I feel as I get older, I understand the game a whole lot better. I know how to run particular drills, set up an offense, and set up a defense. But I am very good at developing the fundamentals of the game.
With my new found ability to the game, I was able to become a coach for two years. I really enjoyed coaching because I got to work with young people and develop their game. The reward for me is to see the smiles of the kids faces when they accomplish a goal.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's Degree from SUNY Oneonta in History and a Master's Degree from the College of Saint Rose in Childhood Education. I also hold a teaching certificate in Birth to Second Grade and First through Sixth Grade.
