Charles Gomez Albarran

Student at Knox College majoring in Spanish, minoring in Educational Policy/Creative Writing
He/Him. ENFJ. I would be lying if I said as much as I have a lot of self-confidence, writing bios isn't my thing. So I'll make this short and sweet. I work hard in order to make myself and my family happy. All that I do is with hopes it will benefit my future.

The Center for Teaching and Learning offers tutoring sessions in the schools library in a variety of subjects. I help students struggling in the Spanish department with grammar, comprehension, and helping them develop a better accent.

Spanish Tutor at Knox College
The Red Room, as it has been dubbed, is one of the biggest study locations in the second floor of the Seymour Library located on the Knox Campus. Tuesdays through Thursdays from 7 pm to 9 pm, tutors in different subjects sit in the room and wait to help students who need the benefit in the subjects we are offering. I am one of the Spanish tutors, and it is always so fun to have students come in and ask questions. Not only do I get to relearn things that I may have forgotten, but I get to pass my knowledge onto someone else for their benefit and their benefit only. I think it's a lot of fun to be able to do something like that.

For starters, this is purely for fun. If it ever becomes a career, I'd love that. For now, I create covers at my school's studio and upload the covers to my channel (Chaswell Tunes) and just allow myself to post content I am happy with at that point in time.
