About Chris

The English language has been my avocation, in one form or another, for virtually all of my career. I am an accomplished writer and I have written hundreds of articles, consulting reports, business plans, marketing studies, grant applications, and much more. I can easily master new material, learn new terminology, and create persuasive narratives for any audience. Verbal skills are, of course, equally as important as written skills, and I have made many oral presentations of my work to diverse and critical audiences, such as: executive boards, prospective business partners, government bodies, etc.

I have significant accomplishments in academia as well. As part of the requirements for my Master's degree from Cornell University, I completed a lengthy Master's Thesis which was closely reviewed by faculty and revised many times. Also, at Rutgers Law School all students take an intensive first-year writing seminar, and for upper level courses I composed three 50+ page papers, all of which received grades of A or A+.

I understand that some students are seeking assistance in more prosaic, everyday English, and I think that I am capable in that manner as well. I am a generalist, parent of three children, familiar with popular culture, and able to relate to people of all ages and cultures. I am semi-retired, but interested in supplementing my income, and I have always wanted to be a teacher; teachers have been so important to me in my life and I have enormous respect for the profession.

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.

Elementary Math

I am certified in elementary math, and I would be comfortable with any other subjects your child is having trouble with.

English

Writing has been my meal-ticket throughout my professional life, and a love of language is the greatest treasure my parents gave me. I have several degrees (bachelor's, master's and law), but it was in law school (Rutgers) that my English skills were most sharply honed. Though practicing layers often write poorly, law professors are very thoughtful and creative writers and in law school good writing is greatly respected. I am pleased to say that all of my major papers (40 pages or more) received grades of A or A+.

I am currently a tutor at a private learning academy in a Northern Bergen County town that has one of the top-ranked high schools in the state, if not the country.
