"Christian was a wonderful tutor for our son and his training and experience as a teacher is invaluable. Christian was so responsive to our sons needs, challenges and strengths, developed great rapport and relationship with him, had a wonderful and effective teaching style, and communicated with us so clearly and consistently about how things were going. I could not recommend him more highly as a tutor!"

I typically curate unique education plans (in line with the BC Curriculum) that are fitted to your child's learning needs. However, I also provide traditional tutoring services. 

If your child is outside of my typical grade range, please still feel free to contact me.

About

My name is Christian and I'm a certified BC teacher. I completed my Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) and my Bachelor of Arts in History (BA) at the University of British Columbia. Additionally, I am currently working to complete my Master's in Educational Technology (MET) at UBC. 

I live in Kitsilano with my wife, Jessica, and my son, Leo. On the weekends you can find us trying out new coffee shops, taking Leo into nature, or doing spontaneous Okanagan trips! I am personally a huge fitness lover and try to fit a calisthenics workout in before Leo wakes up in the morning. In an earlier life, I owned a holistic nutrition business that revolved around helping people learn about and obtain optimal health strategies.

 

I'm determined to use my passion for education and communication to help kids feel confident and accomplished in their learning!

Approach

In my practice I employ several methods that are designed to cultivate a more complete understanding of the subject matter that your child is learning about.

 

Socratic Method

Dialogue-centered learning that involves questioning the child about the material or topics that they're engaging with to provoke deeper thinking and consolidation around the subject. 

Conversational Learning

Kids benefit from talking things through.

This has become clear in my teaching practice. 

Therefore, all learning is thoroughly discussed. Once kids learn material in our sessions, they are expected to spend time teaching it back to me. Learning is reinforced when it's taught. I test kids' understanding by gauging how they interact with and project the material back to me. 

Multi-Modal Learning

I use a multi-faceted approach in my teaching practice. Outside of conversation, we will use a variety of other activities that will reinforce learning.

 

These include, but are not limited to, writing activities, critical reading practices, book writing projects, podcast creation, debates, educational technology and presentations.
