About Christopher

Hello, my name is Christopher. Teaching is in my DNA; my mother taught English as a foreign language, my father trained graduate trainees at work and I have mentored analysts and educated clients in finance throughout my career. I was educated in England at some of the finest and traditional schools by inspiring teachers and I have an Honors degree in English and European Literature. My passion is to pass on their lessons, and my own learned as a copywriter and as a financial communications specialist to enable you to achieve success at school and enjoyment from reading literature.

I tutor English comprehension, literature, creative writing, and critical analysis in preparation for exams and to increase your literary appreciation and analytical skills. I like to work from set texts, much like you would expect in an exam, because these reveal a variety of styles and forms that we can analyze together to enable you to master the concepts that make a narrative. I aim to give you a framework that will enable you to analyze any piece of literature, or if you plan to write, that will remove any fears of looking at a blank sheet of paper (I know that's bold!). In addition, I have extensive knowledge of global financial markets and world affairs which I tutor in preparation for interviews and for general knowledge. I am an expert in Microsoft Office: Excel, Word, and Powerpoint and can teach you or help you with your presentations. I love sports, I play squash competitively, played rugby, cricket, and tennis for my school, and I swim to keep fit.

I try to be flexible when I tutor to match every individual's own pace of learning. I will give you continual feedback on your progress and I ask for your feedback in return, that way we find the right pace. I am happy to travel all over Manhattan. If we both like each other after our first meeting, it normally takes me a day or so to plan our tutorials and then I hope the fun begins! Please reach out to me anytime by e-mail or telephone. I would enjoy getting to know you and helping you prepare for exams and broaden your appreciation for literature.

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.


I have worked in finance for 20 years at Westwood Capital, Seadub Capital, UBS Warburg, Lehman Brothers, and HSBC and I have become an expert in analyzing the income statements, cash flow statements, and balance sheets of publicly and privately traded companies. I have practical experience of sales and marketing, product and process management, manufacturing, and some experience of human resources.

Prior to that I advised on marketing strategies for consumer goods companies.

My particular ares of expertise are in financial companies and consumer goods companies.

Public Speaking

Public speaking is a regular part of my job. I frequently make presentations on global finance and portfolio management to large groups and in smaller seminars and I have appeared on TV (Bloomberg TV's Money Moves). At school I frequently acted in plays.

Expert in his field!! — Christopher's tutoring style is amazing as he is professional and has a lot of experience. He worked with me and helped produce the best output without interjecting his style, opinion, or material into the substantive content of the paper. He focused on writing techniques, grammar and organization. He is an excellent tutor!! ...
