About Chris

Hello! My name is Chris R. I grew up in West Roxbury and attended Saint Sebastian's School (Class of 2013) in Needham, MA. I have just graduated from Harvard University, where I studied English on an honors track. I have also completed coursework in history, politics, philosophy, and several languages (German, French, Spanish, and Latin). At the end of the summer, I will be moving to California to study law at the University of California, Berkeley. I am happy to help with anything from a specific class to test prep to critical academic skills like essay writing and good note taking. I scored a 2300 on the SAT (R:800, W:800, M:700) and a 780 on the Math II Subject Test. In addition, I received 5s on the following AP tests: Language & Composition, Literature & Composition, US History, US Government, Latin, and BC Calculus.

I have tutored elementary, middle, and high school students in the past. At the Pope John Paul II Academy in Dorchester, MA, I tutored elementary school students in reading and math. At the summer enrichment program at Saint Sebastian's School in Needham, MA, I tutored middle school students in reading and writing. At the Cristo Rey School in Dorchester, MA, I tutored high school students in reading and math (up to Algebra 2). Regardless of age group, I love working with students to develop strategies for continued success rather than success on a single assignment. My mindset is that a tutor should demystify HOW a subject works, not just a few specific answers.

Whether you need help with a specific subject or a general skill, with the transition from middle to high school or college applications, I am happy to help. If you have any questions about what subjects I am available to tutor, please feel free to reach out!

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.

College Counseling

I have successfully applied to college (Harvard) and graduate school (UC Berkeley). In addition, I have worked with a local nonprofit (Tutors for All in Boston) with student applying to college. I am well qualified to advise and edit essays (my undergraduate degree is in English; I have worked as a writing tutor through WyzAnt in the past; I also taught writing at a summer program in 2013 and 2014). In college, I also served as a peer advisor for freshman, so I have experience working with that general age group (17-19 years old). Please let me know if you need any more information from me.

Proofreading

I particularly enjoy tutoring reading and writing skills, test prep, and helping with specific essays (whether for a class or a college application).
