About Charles

Hi, my name is Charles F., and I am looking forward to tutoring you. I am easy to get along with, and love working with kids in a variety of subjects. I have a lifelong love of learning and enjoy helping students improve and hone their knowledge.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. I graduated from St. Xavier High School, a distinguished college preparatory school, in Cincinnati. I tutored part time for two years, have worked as a substitute teacher, and currently work as a special education paraprofessional. I have experience in working with kids from kindergarten through high school.

I possess experience working with students both in and out of the classroom and am skilled at explaining difficult concepts to students. As the spouse of a college professor and the husband of a special-needs child, I have learned to use different approaches for different students and have become open to new ways of teaching and tutoring. I have a very patient teacher and won't stop until the student fully understands the concept or problem. I bring a sense of humor too, which I find helps students loosen up.

I can tutor in a variety of subjects, but my strong suits are in reading, writing, and literature, particularly as it pertains to SAT prep. I have plenty of experience in creative writing, having written some young adult manuscripts and screenplays. I excelled at English throughout all my years of school, and truly enjoy helping students get better within the various areas of English.

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.

Basketball

I played basketball in high school. My father was a basketball coach. I coached my sister's junior high basketball team, (in Cincinnati, Ohio) for three years. I have been surrounded by basketball my entire life, and am thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of the game.
