I have a great love for learning and even since graduating I have immersed myself in continuing education courses and have created my own intensive curriculum to further facilitate my education on a wide variety of topics to include finances, philosophy, culinary arts, education theory, emergency medicine, and much more. Through this continuing pursuit of knowledge, I've not only learned a great deal, but also learned how to flexibly approach diverse fields of study in a way that allows for rapid yet substantive understanding of these topics. I've also learned that I absolutely love to share this knowledge and the techniques I've used to acquire it with others. I've now worked as a weekend teacher for several years serving children, to include those with special needs, to learn about a range of topics and I have tutored for hundreds of hours with adults of all ages. This has allowed me to learn a very wide variety of ways to engage others in the learning experience.

One of the things I enjoy most about tutoring is finding ways to make education engaging and fun for the student. I believe learning should never be a rote, brute force attempt to cram knowledge into one's mind through simple repetition, but rather that it should be an exhilarating, collaborative experience between the teacher and student that gets people excited. This means I take the time to find out how my students learn best, as well as what their interests are, and then meet them in a way that both feels fun and allows for rapid uptake of information. As an example, one student I've tutored expressed great interest in emergency medicine early on in our MCAT tutoring sessions. Subsequently, I ensured that the study resources and tutoring I provided were connected to emergency medicine scenarios and challenges that the student found intriguing. I'm always looking for new ways to help make the learning experience as fantastic as possible and I certainly have no intention of stopping anytime soon.

I graduated with a double major in biology and psyc

Test Preparation

MCAT

MCAT

After self-studying while working full time I took the MCAT and received a 520 (129/131/129/131) placing me in the 98th percentile for the exam. Since then I have helped students spanning the range from those who are struggling to break a 500 to top scorers who are looking to break into the 520+ range.

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Patient Tutor

I am at the beginning stages of MCAT prep and Chris has calmed me down. He really has assessed my needs to craft a strategic study schedule. He’s able to breakdown big picture ideas and explain them for specific examples. I had a very productive first meeting.

Chris is the solution to all my MCAT needs!

I'm totally serious. He's worth every penny. He's nice, explains stuff, doesn't make you feel stupid. He's helped me on all the subjects. I only wish I'd found him sooner!

knowledgeable and great

Chris is an expert, and since he understands how to approach MCAT questions, of course, he can teach it so well. He helped me for CARS section as well as so many Biochem passages and overall I've noticed major progress in my performance. I can't thank him enough.

Excellent tutor

Chris and I talked about my MCAT struggles and came up with a strategic plan to overcome my difficulties and getting a stronger score. Chris was patient, kind and very easy to talk to. He has helped many students like myself with the MCAT. I look forward to working with him in the near future.

Great MCAT Tutor

Chris is the best MCAT tutor that I came across! He is very knowledgeable and explains concept in a simple way that makes it so much easier to understand. I had not taken physics 2 and was really struggling with physics 2 concepts but after tutoring sessions with Chris, I was able to go through the chapters so much quicker because I understood the concepts well.
