About Christopher


Bio

I am a 26-year-old student of life that graduated on the Dean’s List (GPA 3.5+) from Vanderbilt University in 2014 with a degree in Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness. I made a 33 on the ACT in high school. My first experience with tutoring came seven years ago when I opened a branch of ACT prep tutoring.

Since that time, I’ve transitioned from working primarily with college students to students of all ages on Organizational Skills / Time Management, English, Writing, Literature,...

I am a 26-year-old student of life that graduated on the Dean’s List (GPA 3.5+) from Vanderbilt University in 2014 with a degree in Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness. I made a 33 on the ACT in high school. My first experience with tutoring came seven years ago when I opened a branch of ACT prep tutoring.

Since that time, I’ve transitioned from working primarily with college students to students of all ages on Organizational Skills / Time Management, English, Writing, Literature, Entrepreneurship, and Math.

My teaching philosophy is centered around the idea of teaching "how to learn." I find that many of my students are not actually struggling with the specific material itself but rather the discipline and the understanding of how to break down their learning in order to be autonomous. A successful student of mine is one that feels empowered to attack his/her study issues on his/herself.

Whether the challenge is learning the course material or in weeding down to the root of the problems that are holding your student back from success, I'm here to facilitate his/her growth as a student and as a human being. Please feel free to contact me and ask for referrals from other students I've worked with in the past.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Business

I studied Entrepreneurship and Leadership and Organizational Development at Vanderbilt. I worked for a start-up computer science company. I independently raised funding and planned a 4.5 month national tour. Manage my teaching and music careers independently and profitably. I've learned how to analyze a problem and break it down into its constituent steps. Then I've worked on developing the practices to implement the discipline in order to execute on those steps.

Creative & adaptable

Chris is able to reach recalcitrant kids and get them to engage with learning. He is flexible, patient, and creative in his approach. My daughter struggles with algebra one and Chris worked to help her be open to the tutoring process.
