About Christopher

A central goal for my students is to establish a reading habit and to inspire students to read independently. Therefore, students will read and analyze a variety of literary and nonfiction texts, exploring the characteristics of different forms and the techniques authors use to achieve their intended purpose. I hope to challenge each of my students to foster a reading life outside of school, and I expect them to grow as readers increasing their stamina and the complexity of the books they choose.

I taught English I for three years and I am starting my second year as an English II teacher. I have four years of teaching experience. As an educator, it is my hope that each child I teach appreciates learning and is motivated to succeed. I aspire to be a positive male influence to many students and develop life-long learners.

I am certified to teach English/ Language Arts/ Reading 8-12 for the State of Texas.

My passing percentages for English I was 84% in 2014 and 94% in 2015. My passing percentage for English II was 90% in 2016.

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.
