About Chris

Chris is English Professor and ACT/SAT tutor living in Chicago. He's known that he wanted to teach since he was a little child and is thrilled to be fulfilling that dream. In his teaching, Chris likes to focus on genre fiction (such as sci-fi, romance, or westerns) and introductory courses, but he's particularly fond of tutoring, because it's the style of teaching in which an instructor gets most clearly to see students improve.

In his free time, Chris is an avid cook. He particularly enjoys preparing Mexican and Chinese food, and he grows his own chiles for making salsas and moles. Every Fourth of July, he throws a pig roast for all his friends (and to give him an excuse to try out new recipes). Chris also enjoys camping, hiking, and backpacking. He has gone on extended treks in Glacier, Sierra Nevada, King's Canyon, Yellowstone, and Rocky Mountain National Parks, as well as on several sections of the Appalachian Trail, which he grew up near. He loves living in a major city, but he needs to spend a little time each year surrounded by trees in order to stay sane!

Chris has master's degree in English from the University of Chicago and has over 2,500 hours of experience tutoring students for standardized tests and has helped to author tutoring materials and practice SATs for students working to improve their scores.

I'm excited to help you earn the test scores you know you deserve. Please, drop a line, and let's start you on your way to a higher score!
