About Colin

I have been working with kids since I had my first job at the age of 13. From babysitter, to camp counselor, to tutor, to mentor and now teacher. I received my BA from The Evergreen State College in which I majored in Education. I was fortunate enough to spend a large portion of my undergraduate abroad, where I developed my Spanish into conversational fluency living in Spain and South America. Then I went on to get my Masters in Teaching from The University of Portland.

I have taught as a substitute in more than half of the Portland Public Schools, ranging from Kindergarten classrooms through high school- usually teaching Spanish. After subbing for two years, I worked as a student advocate (mentor), taught 5th Grade, Middle School Spanish, and I'm currently teaching a college and career readiness class with 1 on 1 mentoring for high school students at David Douglas High School. I have always enjoyed the connections that I build with my students as I get to know them personally, while I get a great deal of satisfaction in helping kids to empower themselves through their education.

I'm happy to support students as a tutor, mentor or some combination of the two. I am currently teaching everyday, but available most days after 2pm. Feel free to reach out to me to see if it would be a good fit.

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 two years of experience teaching all of the different subjects for 5th Grade, using the common core curriculum. In each of those school years I had many hours of training in common core, where we pored over the CC standards, which I now feel at ease accessing and reviewing. I have a Bachelors Degree as well as a Masters in Teaching. I am certified to teach in the State of Oregon from grades K-12. My breadth of common core knowledge ranges far and wide because of the variety of teaching experience I have had over the years.

Social Studies

I have two years of experience teaching all of the different subjects for 5th Grade. While teaching at The Portland Village School, the majority of the curriculum consisted of ancient history. My knowledge of current events is in-depth, given that I am a subscriber and vigorous reader of Time Magazine, The Atlantic and The New York Times. I have a Bachelors Degree as well as a Masters in Teaching. I am also certified to teach in the State of Oregon from grades K-12.
