About Christopher


Bio

I attended grad school at UT-Austin and received my PhD in English Lit in 2014. I have ten years of teaching experience. I've taught at both a renowned, large, public university (UT-Austin) and an elite liberal arts college (Williams College). More recently, I've taught community college composition courses, high school AP courses, and middle school English & Writing courses.

I attended grad school at UT-Austin and received my PhD in English Lit in 2014. I have ten years of teaching experience. I've taught at both a renowned, large, public university (UT-Austin) and an elite liberal arts college (Williams College). More recently, I've taught community college composition courses, high school AP courses, and middle school English & Writing courses.

If you have a son or daughter ready to prepare for college, I can help in a number of ways. Although I am an teacher of writing/reading/literature and an experienced math tutor as well, my specialty is test prep. Since 2010, I have worked for test prep companies, led the test prep service for an education firm, and have even written my own SAT/ACT prep curriculum. Regardless of the test, I can help with both test-taking strategy and content mastery.

Once we achieve that target score, I can help with college application season. I have worked in college admissions and have experience evaluating application essays and, more generally, assessing college-readiness of high school writing. Regardless of the stage of college prep that you are in, I can help!

Lastly, I really find one-on-one tutoring rewarding. I'm always happy to discuss how academic subjects help prepare us for life's challenges. When I'm not teaching or writing tutoring biographies, I'm probably reading, cooking, playing guitar, and figuring out how to travel on a budget.

In addition to my four years working at a test prep company, I am a graduate school veteran, having earned both a MA (2011) and PhD (2014) from the University of Texas at Austin. Although my concentration is in literature, I actually scored higher on the math section of the GRE. I'm happy to help you with any aspect of the applying-for-grad school process. There's a lot to think about!

I spent 4 years working at Revolution Prep as a SAT/ACT group course instructor and private tutor. During my time, my students averaged a 250 point jump in SAT (old version) and a 3 point jump in ACT. Although I love math I had to reteach myself some of the SAT concepts, which makes me an excellent resource for those struggling with some of the math concepts on the test.
