About Chris

I've always thought that people aren't smart because they're naturally smart, or because they're good at taking tests - people are smart because they continually want to learn. I try to foster that attitude in all students and to help people get excited about a subject in a way that they'd want to continue it for themselves. I've found when students manage to find their own interests within a subject, their scores improve naturally.

I've had 3 years of formal teaching experience in Japan teaching elementary, middle school and adults in English. I've also worked proofreading college essays and dissertations to help students with general essay writing skills or to help formulate and hone their arguments. If you find yourself scratching your head figuring out why your paper isn't quite coming together, let me know and I'll take the time to sit down with you and work it out.



I've had both experience learning Japanese in school but also lived in Japan for 3 years making me both familiar with the basics of the language and the culture that goes with it very intimately.

I have a love of literature and writing and still accept jobs writing now, most recently for a game company.

I also wrote extensive academic pieces while in school, receiving high marks and praise on all of them. I'm very comfortable with the written word, and especially essays and can help you figure out the key points of structuring your argument and your essay to make it a truly effective piece. I've also done extensive proofreading on college essays, dissertations and theses.

I studied film for 4 years and still work in and around the industry and would be happy to help provide insights into the industry, the basics of film theory or anything else you might be curious about.

I'm a flexible, outgoing person who's here to help you! If you hate a subject, I hope to help you like it. If you love a subject, I hope to help you love it a little bit more.

I'm fairly flexible for time, and can assign homework if requested and am happy to teach wherever you feel most comfortable.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Film

I studied film in the UK for three years receiving a 1:1 for my degree (roughly a 3.8/4.0 HOW equivalent). For the course I worked on both practical and theoretical work including a 50 page dissertation and many long form essays that all required publishable standards for citation. I've also written numerous screenplays and other pieces of film production paperwork.

Currently, I still work in and around the film industry. I am happy to help with either aspect, creative or theoretical, of film.
