About Charles

For 7+ years I have worked as a private tutor with both general education and AP students in Highland Park and other districts. More recently, I have tutored both an international law student at SMU on essay writing and graduate students at the University of Texas, Dallas and Texas Women's University. I tutored a grad student at TWU for a year. She is finishing her degree this semester, so I am seeking a few new students.

I am highly proficient in English grammar, literature, and writing. I also have an avid interest in American history, government, and political science, having taken many courses in these disciplines in college.

I also feel called to serve students with special needs and learning differences--especially students diagnosed on the autism spectrum--both lower and higher functioning. I am patient, caring, dependable, respectful, and consistent. I empower students to achieve their IEP and personal goals to be successful and more independent.

I prefer to work in person to enhance my one-on-one time with students, including higher questioning, checking for understanding, and offering crucial suggestions, which may increase the work to a higher letter grade in some cases. However, I am willing to help online, if a sound rough draft is prepared in advance.

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.

ADD/ADHD

My 8+ years experience as an assistant in special education, as a substitute teacher, and as a private tutor included working with ADD/ADHD students. I helped them with daily assignments, homework, studying for tests, and helping to administer tests in the academic support center at the high school level.

American History

While I have a BA in English, I have had a life-long interest in American history, having won that award when I graduated from high school.

My elective college courses included American history, history of the South,the presidency, southern political ideas (Jefferson, Calhoun, et al), civil liberties, and constitutional law.

I was invited and became a member of the national history honor fraternity.

Autism

Since December, 2011, I have worked full time with autistic students in special education programs at both Conrad High School, (Dallas ISD) and Williams Preparatory, an Uplift Education charter school. Previously, I often helped higher functioning autistic students in Highland Park ISD.

English

I have a BA degree in English from the University of TN, and I have tutored students privately in Highland Park for several years, having been recommended by an English AP teacher at Highland Park High School. I also tutor students with special needs, including autism. I am very proficient in grammar and American literature.

Law

As an undergraduate student in college, I took Constitutional Law, Civil Liberties, and Business Law. It is always a pleasure to help students in subjects in which I have a great interest.

Study Skills

I have a BA in English, and I have 5+ years experience as a private tutor. As I have helped students with their assignments and during the writing process, I have introduced ways to organize their resources into actual folders or notebooks to stay organized throughout a term or course. I have also modified their organizational needs or created ways to enhance their study skills to accommodate special needs or learning differences.

Writing

I have a BA in English from the University of TN at Chattanooga. During college, I wrote many formal papers for classes within my major, including a course in advanced writing. While on staff as a teaching assistant at Highland Park High School, 2008-2009, I was recommended by English teachers, and I helped several students with junior and senior writing assignments. I have continued to tutor students, both in and out of Highland Park. Since 2013, I have been a full time teaching assistant at a local college preparatory charter school. It would be a pleasure to help new students.
