About Christopher

I started college at 14 at Cal State LA, and have had a well-rounded education of upper-division English classes (American/Classical Greek literature) and math up to calculus. I ultimately followed my love of plays as a written form and graduated with a BA in Theater Arts.

For the past several years, I've been tutoring privately on the side with students of all ages. At Cal State LA, I was a writing tutor and helped fellow students develop proofreading and revision skills. I also volunteered at the Union Rescue Mission, working with underprivileged children who struggled with reading. I have successfully prepared high school students for the SAT and am very familiar with the material covered. I first took the SAT myself when I was 12 and scored very highly.

I create a respectful and supportive atmosphere, while I help each client accomplish his or her goals. I want my students to have confidence in themselves and their own intelligence. Everyone learns differently; sometimes it just takes someone with the patience to figure out what works best for that individual.

I go out of my way to make problem sets for my students to work on, and I will gladly provide and/or recommend additional material.
