About Chris

I received my JD from the University of Tulsa and MA in Classics (Greek and Latin) from the University of Kansas. I scored in the 96th percentile on the LSAT and 99th percentile on the GRE, including a perfect score on the English section (similar to the reading and English sections of the ACT and SAT). I've taught Latin at the college and high school level for three years. I've been tutoring test-taking skills, Latin and Greek for 5 years. I am experienced with teaching high school and college students, both in the classroom and in one on one situations.

I have 20 years' experience reading Ancient Greek, and I won my graduate department's "Sight Reading in Greek" contest in 2012. I've been teaching Greek in one on one settings to students from high school to adult learners for five years. I have boundless enthusiasm for helping students master Greek.

I have a perfect score on the GRE English section - similar to the college placement exams' English sections. It is important to be careful in choosing a tutor for these tests, because they're hard to teach. In my 5 years' teaching these subjects I have developed tried-and-true methods for raising students' scores, including the art of guessing the questions before you read them and the expert use of Process of Elimination.

I received a 96th percentile on the LSAT, and I've been teaching the LSAT for 5 years. I have a proven track record of raising students' scores. I am especially good at teaching the logical reasoning and reading sections, where scores resist raising most stubbornly. Of course, I can also help you get the low hanging fruit on the games section, where scores improve most easily.

I'm easygoing and I love tutoring. Drop me a line and we'll discuss whether I'm the right fit for you. Good luck in your quest to master your subject!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Reading

I've worked with students of all abilities, including the differently abled, achieve their highest scores on the Reading section. I've seen the common pitfalls students struggle with, and have developed methods for getting the best results for each student. I've been teaching this section for three years.

Greek

I have a Master's Degree in Classics (Greek and Latin) and won the "Sight Reading in Greek" award for my graduate program. I've been teaching Greek in one on one settings to students from high school to adult learners for five years.

Latin

I have a Master's Degree in Classics (Greek and Latin) and I've taught Latin at the college and high school levels as well as 5 years of tutoring experience.

LSAT

I scored 96th percentile on the LSAT and graduated in the top ten percent of my law school class. I've been teaching the LSAT for two years.

SAT Reading

I have two years' experience teaching the SAT. In that time, I've been delighted to see great success and improvement in my students. I've seen the common pitfalls students encounter and I've developed a set of tools to help students get over them.

SAT Writing

I have two years' experience teaching writing skills, including special writing tutor-training for a famous online writing lab. I can bring that expertise out of the impersonal, note-exchanging environment of the writing lab and into a one on one connection and more dedicated time with your student.

Great Tutor

Chris was patient, very specific in the skills that he wanted you to learn. Great experience. On the logic games section, Chris took the time to write down specific tips and rules designed to help me on those particular questions.
