About Craig

I have always had a passion for teaching and learning. From a working class background I graduated with honors from Harvard University where I lettered in three sports, football, wrestling and lacrosse. I graduated with honors from Boston College Law School and through the years have taught writing and public speaking. Being the father of nine children, three of whom have graduated from college, I have an in depth knowledge of what is required to assist a student to be successful. I have a thorough knowledge of history, government, literature and economics. My style is to learn the student’s strengths and weaknesses and to constantly encourage the student in the progress he or she will make. I do not believe that one approach works for all students and I assist each student in an individualized plan that fits each student’s learning style. I am a firm believer that any student can be successful if given the right strategy and motivation. I have always had a passion for teaching and learning.

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.

Bible Studies

I have led Bible classes as well as life groups in our church. I am a lead deacon in our church and have traveled on mission trips to evangelize to five countries in Africa, Belgium, Mexico and Serbia. God’s Word is a daily passion for me and enjoy conveying that passion and purpose.

Career Development

I have had a successful career in business and law and have considerable success advising people on resumes, interviewing and career search strategy. I have coached many people on interview skills as well how to position themselves in the marketplace. I enjoy coaching people on what they need to do to achieve their goals.

College Counseling

I have worked with and advised numerous students on getting accepted to college. My work has included interview counseling, preparation of essays and college selection based on skills, proficiencies and desires. I have 3 older children who attended top universities and have assisted many others through all levels of college and graduate education.

English

In addition to an ability to teach English and writing, I am able to encourage students to motivate them to actually enjoy the process. Many students do not believe they have ability to express themselves through writing and often these students become the most motivated and creative.

Football

I played high school and college football, in which was all state and all league respectfully. I have coached high school and youth football as well as basketball, wrestling and lacrosse. I understand how to teach fundamentals while encouraging athletes to achieve their goals.

GED

I am qualified to teach math, history, English, writing, and the areas covered by the GED.

Government & Politics

I graduated with honors with a degree in Government from Harvard University. I am a practicing attorney who is well versed in all aspects of the political system and have the ability to convey that to students of all levels.

Lacrosse

I was an all state high school lacrosse player and played Division 1 lacrosse at Harvard. I have coached high school and junior high lacrosse. My goal is to encourage and work with athletes so they can achieve their potential.

Public Speaking

I have done extensive public speaking in my life. I have tried many cases before juries and judges as well as speaking at large business conferences, churches and school events. I have helped many people prepare for public speaking engagements and have helped them develop their own style and method.

Reading

I have a passion to teach students how to read and understand material. The ability to read and comprehend is the fundamental building block for any subject. My goal is not proficiency, but to engender a love of reading.

Religion

I have taught and preached the gospel all over the world. I am a lead deacon at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas which currently has 28,000 members. In my experience at Gateway Church and other locations I have led and participated in mission trips in Germany, Mexico, South Africa, Belgium, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania. I study the Bible daily and participate in biblical seminars on a regular basis.

SAT Reading

I have extensive experience working with students of all levels to help them do better on the reading portion of the SAT. In addition to comprehension I work with each student on test taking strategies.

Vocabulary

I have the ability to help students augment and build their vocabulary in both their writing and speaking skills. Through a career where I have written and spoken extensively for very discerning audiences, I have developed methods which I believe can substantially help improve a student’s vocabulary.

World History

Through both studies at Harvard University and an ongoing interest and insatiable reading of history, I have a strong base to both teach and encourage students in this area.

Writing

I have extensive experience in teaching and editing writing in all styles including creative, research papers, and legal. I can help assist the student to not only become more proficient in writing, but actually enjoy the process.
