In 2006, Charles spent eight months working as an ESL instructor in Ikebukuro, a district of Tokyo, where he first learned the joys of eating onigiri. After graduating from Princeton University with BSE in Mechanical Engineering and a Certificate in Theater and Dance, he worked for a Princeton professor’s private company as a Senior Software System Engineer for seven years. Deciding to transition into education, he moved to New York City where he has been a private tutor for over 12 years.
Charles has a natural talent for working with math and science students, especially in physics, organic chemistry, general chemistry, and calculus. He has successfully worked with high schoolers attending schools such as Stuyvesant, Horace Mann, Dalton, Brearley, and Bronx Science and has also tutored college students attending Columbia, Princeton, and NYU. Across all levels, he maintains a specialty in standardized testing (e.g. GRE and GMAT).
Though it has been quite some time since he has been on stage, Charles occasionally enjoys attending Broadway shows and, ever since achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, he has had a deep appreciation for hiking.
