About Charles

I have a diverse educational and career background. I love to work with children and young developing adults. I have a strong passion for teaching and mentoring. I believe that education and experience are key to a successful, happy life. Opportunities for one's own advancement should never be wasted, and I feel that I can be a catalyst for providing children and young adults with these opportunities through tutoring, mentoring, and sharing my experiences with the challenges we all face in life. Time management and learning skills can change one's outlook in terms of what it takes to achieve stated objectives and goals. I firmly believe "that a mind is a terrible thing to waste."

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.

Career Development

I have worked with the workforce development office with the Erie County Executive's office in Buffalo, New York to help people with career development skills. I also worked with the Department of Social Services to help recipients of welfare benefits to find jobs through the welfare to work program. I also have experience helping people with resumes, cover letters, interviewing skills, and basic strategies for finding gainful employment.

Public Speaking

As an Executive Assistant to an Erie County executive, I was assigned to represent the County Executive at numerous public functions where I did quite a bit of public speaking before large audiences. I have also been assigned to write speeches, and prepare individuals for their public addresses. Finally, I have worked with students through the Kids Voting Program in Western New York to prepare them for public debates on a wide variety of topics.

Tennis

I have played tennis all my life, playing competitively through my high school years. I have attended camps and had one-on-one coaching, and understand the skills required to teach others. I have the patience and the discipline necessary to work with others of various skill levels.
