Bio

I graduated from the University of Miami with honors in English Literature. I have five years of experience tutoring English, History, and the SAT (both English and Math). I have worked with over 70 students, ranging from grades 6-12. I also have edited and proofread essays for college and graduate level students.

For the SAT, I tutor every section: Reading, Writing, Math, and Essay. I have a firm understanding of the redesigned SAT format. My philosophy is to work on improving foundational skills, test-taking strategies, and time management. I have also created proprietary resources and worksheets that will help students target their strengths and weaknesses. Every student I have worked with has seen a significant improvement in their test scores.

At the University of Miami, I wrote over 30 college-level essays, finishing with a 3.9 GPA in my English major. In my final year, I wrote an optional 25-page senior thesis in which I analyzed the processes of literary interpretation in William Blake's poem "America a Prophecy." For my work, I was recognized as the honoree for UM's "Outstanding Student in Literary Studies Award."

Some specific areas I have helped students with include:
• drafting and writing essays & research papers
• preparing for the SAT Reading, Writing, Math, and Essay Sections
• college application essays & personal statements
• editing and proofreading graduate-level dissertations
• developing sentence patterns and rhetorical strategies to improve writing skills
• learning the fundamentals of grammar
• improving reading comprehension
• improving vocabulary
• writing speeches and practicing for presentations
• completing literature assignments
• preparing for the GRE Verbal
• teacher certification exams (i.e. FTCE GKT)

I am very passionate about literature, writing, and language. I enjoy sharing the benefits of these subjects with my students and helping them realize how fundamental they are to everyday success.

Grammar,

Grammar

Nouns, articles, linking verbs, adjective clauses, subjects and predicates, direct objects, prepositional phrases, participles, modifiers – grammar can be complicated, but I believe it doesn't have to be. I have helped multiple students learn the fundamentals of grammar, always starting with the basics to ensure that they have a solid foundation to build upon.
Proofreading

Proofreading

I have proofread and edited over 500 pages of academic and professional writing in the past three years. The works I've edited comprise a wide variety of subjects, including papers on literature, marketing, and even environmental science. I have a firm understanding of standard writing conventions, syntax, grammar, and proper formatting. I will enhance sentence structure, organization, and vocabulary. I will convey your ideas in the most effective way possible. I guarantee perfect grammar and no typos.

Vocabulary

I believe the best way to learn words is to use them, so I make sure that my students actually write sentences using the vocabulary words in order to master the meanings more effectively. Better than simply reading definition after definition, this method is also a great practice for improving sentence structure and overall writing ability. In the GRE Verbal Reasoning section I scored in the 97th percentile, earning a score of 166 out of 170. This section is almost entirely a vocabulary test – analogies, antonyms, and sentence completion questions all test your understanding of high-level college vocabulary.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Christopher was very knowledgeable on writing college essays and was able to help my daughter understand what colleges are looking for. Would highly recommend him as a tutor.

Good teacher

Christopher understood the needs of my 6th grader quickly. He was prepared to start the first class, and did a very good job encouraging and guiding my son by providing tools and approaches to understand the assignment. It was the first class, and I will schedule more!

Yolanda, 7 lessons with Christopher

Excellent, Helpful Tutor

I reached out to Christopher in hopes to improve my SAT Reading score. Reading is not my strongest subject by far as I love math and science. However, with the helpful tips and tricks Christopher taught me I feel much more prepared to tackle this portion of the SAT. Highly recommend!

By Far the Best Tutor I've Ever Worked With!

Chris explains everything very thoroughly and in a way that is easy to understand. With his help I have become a more confident writer and essays are no longer a hassle. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who needs help with anything English related.
