Hi, I'm Chris! I love helping others learn and improve in many subjects, mainly Spanish and martial arts. I've been a Karate instructor at my local studio for several years, teaching students ages 4-adult. Teaching martial arts is a constant learning experience. I am often faced with new challenges and ideas for how to improve my teaching style and give every student the best learning experience possible.
More recently I have expanded my teaching experience to the Spanish language as a tutor. Having the chance to use the strategies I had gained as a Karate instructor in the field of Spanish language has been a rewarding experience that has given me invaluable professional skills that I hope to keep using in future opportunities. I love passing on what I know, and I love seeing my students progress as they learn the material I provide them. The most important principle behind being a good teacher is making lessons fun while still having them be productive. Without the element of fun, it is impossible to truly pass on the knowledge to the student.
I have been a tutor since the summer of 2017, both through a local public school and independently. I currently only have two students so I am looking forward to expanding my student base and getting to know more people just as excited about the Spanish language.
If tutoring multiple students at once, I am willing to discount the hourly rate per student to $25 (so for 2 students I would only charge $50 per hour).
I graduated in the Spring of 2016 from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish and Linguistics, a degree which I worked hard to achieve, including by studying abroad in Spain for a semester. I started out as a Karate instructor, a position which I still currently hold, before I expanded to tutoring Spanish for a local public school in the summer of 2017. I now tutor Spanish independently to two middle school children, but I am willing to work with any students from middle school through adult.
