About Chris


Bio

I have English degrees (B.A., M.A.) and teaching credentials (K-8, high school English). I taught middle school English for 2 years and high school English for 4 years, and I’ve tutored over 1,000 hours on Wyzant in the last couple years. I believe in the importance of strong reading and writing skills and enjoy engaging students in the discipline of English.

I have English degrees (B.A., M.A.) and teaching credentials (K-8, high school English). I taught middle school English for 2 years and high school English for 4 years, and I’ve tutored over 1,000 hours on Wyzant in the last couple years. I believe in the importance of strong reading and writing skills and enjoy engaging students in the discipline of English.

I find that students learn much more when they receive in-depth, individualized instruction and feedback, something that, in most cases, classroom teachers cannot adequately provide. I enjoy working with individuals to advance their English skills in the areas where they need it most.

I am extremely knowledgeable and skilled in the areas of reading comprehension, literary analysis, writing, and language conventions (grammar, punctuation, spelling, etc.). I also have an expert understanding of Common Core ELA, which means I know what English teachers and test-developers are looking for.

Please contact me with any questions and/or to book a tutoring session. I look forward to working with you!

Covered a lot of content.

Chris had a pleasant demeanor and that was helpful for me. Covered a lot of content that will be useful for my SAT and ACT. Explained things in a way that I could understand.

Miracle, 2 lessons with Chris

Committed and knowledgable writing partner!

One of the reasons I like working with Chris is that he partners with me as I develop my work. Chris commits to my projects as though they are his and provides helpful feedback that improves the structure, content, and grammar of my assignments. With his help, I was able to gain entry into a competitive nursing program and now he is helping me improve essays for scholarships. He writing knowledge, creative input and patient demeanor combine to create an enviroment that that is hospitable to creating great essays. I am very grateful for his insights and help!

Dominika, 1 lesson with Chris

Knowledgable tutor who really cares

Chris reviewed SAT reading comprehension with my son. He broke the passage into parts and thoroughly reviewed and explained the passage to him. He even went into definitions. Definitely impressed!

Janet, 32 lessons with Chris

Chris was and excellent tutor, very knowledgeable and patient

Chris helped me to improve my writing. Because English is my second language, I have issues with grammar and sentence’s structure. Chris was very patient instructing me how re write a more clear response to one of my peers.

Nathalie, 1 lesson with Chris

Jay, 18 lessons with Chris

Very patient and helpful tutor

My son was struggling with literature and found Chris to be extremely helpful. Would be continuing class with Chris in the future too for the remainder of the school year.

MADHURIMA, 3 lessons with Chris

Excellent, Experienced, knowledgeable and patient tutor

Mr. Chris is tutoring Literature and Writing to my son who is a freshman this year at high school. I totally recommend him since he is very patient and responsible, always tries to help and gives great editing tips. He always wants to be sure that student is fine with his work and understanding everything, besides his usual home work. Simply, if you are searching for a best Literature teacher, schedule a class with Mr. Chris.
