About Christopher

Teaching has been my passion for nearly twenty years. After teaching high school social studies, including AP U.S. History, for 14 years, I wanted to return to my tutoring days. I find tutoring to be most rewarding as this is where I saw students better reach their educational goals.

I use various methods of instruction depending on the needs of the student. My favorite method is research based instruction as students learn a great deal through guided self discovery. This also creates a high level of subject retention. Regardless of the methods employed, the goal is to tell the story of who we are as a society using the past to understand the present. I have an excellent subject knowledge as evidenced by earning the ETS Recognition of Excellence Award for Social Studies: Content Knowledge in 2014.

Along with the aforementioned award, I have taught AP U.S. History for seven years. Most students excelled in the exam earning college credit for the course after graduating high school. History was one of two concentrations I followed while earning a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies. The other concentration was in sociology. The ability to use an interdisciplinary approach to learning provides my students with a somewhat unique experience.

Please contact me to set up your tutoring session. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
