I am Chris H. and I am from Oklahoma. I've been a teacher for three years but all from a tiny school down south. That doesn't mean that I have less to offer however! In fact, I would wager that my tough, but fair approach could be exactly what you're looking for--regardless if you're a parent or a student. I was the head English teacher at Depew Public Schools before I made my daring journey to NYC. I have a burning passion to get started in this city that I hope you can match with passion for success.
I have the most experience with adolescents between the age of 13-18 because of the positions that I have held. However, I have a multitude of experience for the younger ages thanks, in part, to the community-like nature of my previous schools. I would spend lots of time during the ends of the year reading to the children in the elementary simply because it was refreshing after a year of high school. At any rate, I hope to see some interest in my services because I hope to see you succeed! Thanks very much for your time.
I have had a prolific academic career in high school and in college. My ACT scores were elite (a 35 in reading!) when I took it and I've placed in the 93rd percentile in the Verbal GRE. I have never scored lower than a B for any level of English course and I have been teaching English for 3 years already.

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.
I competed in competitive speech and debate for my high school career, going to state as a senior. In college I completed a Public Speaking course and performed Shakespearean monologues for large crowds. As a professional, I was a high school English teacher. I spoke to crowds regularly and was required to present information daily.
I have degree in Creative Writing and very relevant professional experience.
