About Christopher

Greetings! Originally from the Boston area, I had the opportunity to live overseas in Guatemala, Central America for 9 years before settling in the Tidewater area. I am bilingual in Spanish. I have been a private school teacher for over 25 years. My undergraduate degrees are in Health and Physical Education. I also have graduate degrees in Divinity and Education from Regent University. I received my Special Education endorsements from Old Dominion University. My teaching experience has been varied as I have worked in alternative settings, and my wife and I home-school our own children. I believe I can be an effective tutor for your child where as a Christian it will be my intention to be an effective communicator as I intend to identify your child's strengths and support them toward agreed upon goals. My Sport background allows me to see this as a personal trainer or coaching experience. My Divinity training incorporates the soul of the student - the why we need to study and learn something (i.e. the pursuit of wisdom and not just information). I have had extensive experience working in a psychiatric residential treatment center (almost 14 years), therefore I am not fazed by disruptive behavior. My special education training and work experience has allowed me to work with students with the characteristics of autism. Greetings!

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.

Special Needs

I am certified in the General Curriculum for Special Education from Old Dominion University. The areas of Special Needs were covered in the courses I took. I have also taught Special Education in a Psychiatric Treatment Center for the past 14 years and I am very familiar with students with these tendencies.
