About Charles

Hi! My name is Charlie. I've been an English teacher and tutor for 15 years. I've worked with students from the 2nd grade all the way to college. In addition to tutoring in ELA, I've had success with teaching test prep for the NYS ELA Exam.

I love tutoring privately because I can make students my top priority, and focus all of my time and attention on them. The students and I feel accomplished when we see positive results from our hard work. In addition, tutoring provides more of a relaxed atmosphere for the student to learn in.

I'm a voracious reader and love to bring literature, and its themes, into my lessons. I also have unique ways to "read between the lines," whether it's in a story or on test questions.

I've seen the Common Core exams in the last few years and have been able to become familiar with the style, difficulty and changes.

I'd love to meet and work with new students. So, if something in my profile interests you, please contact me!

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.

Common Core

I have been teaching ELA for fifteen years, and have seen the shift in practice once Common Core standards were implemented. I have seen the state test for the past several years and have used released materials to teach reading, writing and test taking strategies, both in my classroom and in private settings.

English

I hold New York State and New York City licenses in English Grades 7 - 12 and have been in the NYC Department of Education system for 15 years.

Writing

I'm licensed in English by New York State and New York City, which includes Writing. I am an employee of the NYC Department of Education.
