About Chris


Bio

Hi there. I’m Chris. I was a math major at the University of Richmond, and I tutored there for all four years – both helping peers at the campus tutoring center and working with local high school students. I really enjoyed this, and I helped a lot of my fellow students get through their required math courses. I believed, and still do, that anyone can have success if the material is presented to them in an accessible, engaging, and friendly way. I’m enthusiastic about this stuff, and that...

Hi there. I’m Chris. I was a math major at the University of Richmond, and I tutored there for all four years – both helping peers at the campus tutoring center and working with local high school students. I really enjoyed this, and I helped a lot of my fellow students get through their required math courses. I believed, and still do, that anyone can have success if the material is presented to them in an accessible, engaging, and friendly way. I’m enthusiastic about this stuff, and that helped them overcome some of the distance between themselves and the subjects, and to make the subjects “click”.

After graduation I got a job on Wall Street, but I continued tutoring informally – mostly family friends, and mostly in math or SAT prep. About a year ago I decided to re-dedicate myself to tutoring. I was connected via New York Cares with a group of 5 high school students in Fort Greene on SAT prep, and we met every Saturday for a couple months. We started out working on Math topics, but as we moved onto Reading and Writing I was able to help them even more on those (indeed, I think that may be my strongest area). Scores went up by 300 points from our first session to their last practice test!

I currently tutor students in both SAT and GRE prep. I’ve been able to build confidence in my students and demystify the tests by introducing topics slowly and building up from basics. We work to build real understanding of the topics and build up a “toolbox” of strategies and techniques specific to each test. I’ve always intuitively understood tests, and I’m happy now to be able to share that understanding with my students and help them boost their test scores.

Great GRE tutoring

Chris is really helping me get to where I need to be to take the GRE. He has been very patient and has constructed lessons in a way that really works for me. He has even made some homework assignments to help me on the road to GRE success. I am going to continue working with him as I feel more and more confident after every lesson! Thanks, Chris!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor - SAT prep

Although we had limited availability and the SAT test was only days away, Chris was flexible and accommodated our needs. He was very familiar with the material and subjects, provided with updated practice material to do practice, was clear in the explanations, allowed my teenager daughter to understand and address her weaknesses, made her aware of the traps and taught her how to avoid them during the test. The follow-up summaries at the end of each lesson were very insightful and helpful. My daughter feels much more prepared to tackle the SAT test after just few lessons with Chris.
