Chris Girard – Tutoring


Since 2013, I offer in-person and online tutoring via WyzAnt to people of all ages and educational backgrounds. I do in-person tutoring from almost all areas of Central, North and West Los Angeles. You can directly send me tutoring inquiries through my contact page or Wyzant page here.

I offer a background of teaching students one-on-one and in large groups as a teaching assistant for various universities, including University of California, Santa Cruz, Otis College of Art & Design, and Goldsmiths, University of London over the last decade. I have tutored for students from a variety of universities in the Los Angeles area, including University of California, Los Angeles, University of Southern California, Santa Monica College and the Art Institutes. I have an artistic inclination but am more cerebral. I am formally trained in digital media and specialize in web design issues including code (HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript). I am also proficient in manual and digital photography.

I graduated with a Ph.D. in Arts & Computational Technology from Goldsmiths, University of London and a Master’s Degree in Digital Arts & New Media from University of California, Santa Cruz. I also have a Master’s Degree in Writing (Poetry) from Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles.

I am very easy to access and have a centrally located tutoring space with wifi and outlets. I am an avid bicyclist and will never complain about driving/parking or use it as an excuse for being late, since it takes me roughly five to thirty minutes to get within a ten mile radius of my home location in Los Feliz.
