About Chris

Hello!

My name is Chris and I live in Draper, Utah. I grew up in Madison, New Jersey... The "Garden State" is really a great place to live!

A little about my background:

I have a BA from the University of Utah in German. I also have a professional teaching license from the state of Florida for elementary K-6, math grades 5-9, and secondary French. I have lived abroad in Switzerland, Germany, and France. I speak/read/write German and French. (Hoping to get started soon with Spanish!) I love foreign languages and cultures and need to schedule another trip to Europe SOON!

For the past 20 years, I have worked in the computer training/consulting field. I have trained adults on primarily Microsoft products... Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, etc. I have also trained on several other products as needed. I must say that MS Excel would be my favorite-- it's a POWERFUL program! I have also specialized in creating automation ("Macros") for some of my clients in Excel.

I have always enjoyed teaching in one way or another... whether adults in small or large classes (or tutoring sessions), or kids in classes at Church, or tutoring students in different topics. Recently, I tutored a friend's son, age 15, for 7-8 weeks straight, 5-6 hours a day as he was about to fail several classes! It was fun and we accomplished great things!

In short, teaching for me is very satisfying. It's great to see the "lightbulbs" light up when learning happens and concepts are understood!

I think to be a great tutor, you need to have lots of patience, excellent organizational and communication skills (including being a good LISTENER!). Setting goals and helping the student ACHIEVE them would be high on the list as well. And, I'll add a SENSE OF HUMOR! Learning should also be FUN!

I look forward to being able to help you meet your educational goals and having a great learning experience!

Thank you for reading!

Chris
