About Charles

I have tutored children from the age of 4 to adults of 70 in whatever subject they have requested. My specialties are GED and English as a Second Language, but I have tutored almost all school subjects. I have also tutored for the SAT, ACT, TAKS, and Compass Tests. And most recently tutored a friend to pass the Civil Service Examination for Security Officer for Homeland Security and FBI.

For 23 years I have used an eclectic approach in teaching my clients. I custom-fit my teaching to their needs. I have an MA degree with 30 additional hours of graduate education courses. I have taught in the following settings: public school K-12; private Christian schools; and home school settings. I have also taught at several Junior Colleges. I am available all year long.

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.

Dyslexia

As I already have a background both academically and experientially working with students with special needs, my area of greatest strength is tutoring students with dyslexia. I have over 30 graduate hours in special education to back this fact up as well as over twenty years of experience with students with this learning disability.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught in the elementary grades since the early 1980s. I worked for three school districts in Galveston County Texas in subjects ranging from ESL to special education. I taught essential elements in most subject content areas. I have graduate level coursework from a major university as well as a Masters degree. My success rate is quite high.

ESL/ESOL

I have been qualified in all levels for many years.

GED

I am currently a GED instructor for Midland College and have been a tutor in it for thirty years. I can teach the new test for 2014.

Phonics

In addition to the other language arts tutoring that I engage in, many years were spent teaching phonics in ESL as well as public school language courses, My transcripts in this area were earned from the University of Houston in Clear Lake City Texas. My expertise is from Pre-K through graduate school. Hundreds of students literally advanced one or more grade levels under my instruction.

Special Needs

I have 30 graduate hours in special education including visual, auditory, and numerous other special needs areas. My areas of greatest experience are dyslexia and autism. I subbed in 5 school districts in all these areas and worked for a short time in a high school as a teacher working with the profoundly retarded. My greatest attributed are compassion, patience and a highly developed ecletic teaching method with good results.

Study Skills

My experience in teaching study skills started in 1983 while teaching ESL study skills for College of the Mainland in La Marque Texas. Then I was with the Friendswood School District from 1987 to 1997 in the same capacity. With that and private tutoring, I taught k-12 study skills with mastering content area with special education included. Currently, I am in the G program at Midland College and did the same at San Jacinto College and four Houston area school districts. Study skills is part of those curriculi.
