About Charles


Bio

My name is Charles, but you can call me your future tutor. I am a 2011 grad of LSU in Baton Rouge, LA with a BA in Economics. I now live in Richmond, VA, and tutor in-person mostly in the Greater Richmond Area. I have tutored economics, statistics, college-level algebra, and calculus students for a decade-plus. Most education isn't necessarily about teaching ideas applicable to your life/career directly (not many lawyers use calculus regularly, nor do medical doctors have to talk about...

My name is Charles, but you can call me your future tutor. I am a 2011 grad of LSU in Baton Rouge, LA with a BA in Economics. I now live in Richmond, VA, and tutor in-person mostly in the Greater Richmond Area. I have tutored economics, statistics, college-level algebra, and calculus students for a decade-plus. Most education isn't necessarily about teaching ideas applicable to your life/career directly (not many lawyers use calculus regularly, nor do medical doctors have to talk about photosynthesis in detail, Haha!)...but how one handles adversity. I want to ensure my students understand the information they are presented thoroughly, and that they are better learners of complex information and problems in the future. I PERSONALIZE and CUSTOMIZE the help I give based on their specific learning style as a student. Learning how to understand the information in a personal way directly helps one become more effective and more confident as a problem-solver when more complex problems arise in the subject matter. I've been actively involved in tutoring, mentoring and coaching youth since 2006. I worked as a Teacher's Assistant for my statistics classes in college at LSU. While attending LSU, I tutored Statistics, Economics, and Spanish to high school and college-level students. Since then my students have been varied, I have taught 50+ yr old officers at rural churches how to use MS Office to make auditing and checking bank records easier, and I have shown 9 yr olds and 10 yr olds how to use Pivot tables and formulas to show graphs of bake sale revenue. I pride myself on being an open book and someone who is willing to earn the trust and respect of anyone trusting me to be their tutor. ***CRAMMERS and SIDESTEPPERS BEWARE: I AM A TUTOR and Awesome-Person-Extraordinaire NOT A CRAMMER ASSISTANT...I need to be able to track the effectiveness of the teachings being used, and one-time cramming sessions are generally proven to be ineffective. If this is something that is done, I may change the rate of my help.***

Saxophone

I have played e-flat alto saxophone for 17 years, including playing with different jazz sets throughout the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas. I have also performed in some of the smaller tents at JazzFest, and I would be more than willing to help anyone who has the desire and wants to develop the practice habits and listening skills to improve and play different styles.

Sports/Recreation

Football

Football

I played strong safety/rover for Jesuit High School in New Orleans, LA (2003-2006) under Vic Eumont. I tore my ACL before senior season of high school. I walked on as an athlete for the University of Southern Mississippi in 2006. I have coached youth football from 2008 to the present, with expertise in linebackers and defensive backs. I have been Defensive Coordinator with 7th-8th grade students (12-14yr olds) of Clover Hill Bulldogs Athletic Association of Chesterfield Quarterback League in West Chesterfield, VA since 2012. Under my helm, we lost 4 games in 2 years with (1 loss coming in the championship game, 2 of the others the championship winner that season). I have been offered opportunities to coach on the high school level, but I have declined those opportunities to help instill the love of football in kids before they get to the high school level. I currently use a 4-4 stack scheme for my defense such that I can give my smart yet not supremely athletic players an opportunity to attack the run-oriented offenses we face. I pride myself on making sure I coach fundamentally sound players that give maximum effort and learn to expect greatness out of themselves such that they hold themselves to the highest standard. Defensive Minds I follow: Vic Eumont, Bud Foster, Gary Patterson (all coaches who teach discipline to achieve superior results rather than solely depending on superior athleticism to accomplish the same end).
