About Christopher


Bio

I mainly offer two services: test prep and college counseling.

TEST PREP: I obtained perfect scores on both the SAT and the ACT, as well as 99th percentile results on the PSAT, GRE, and LSAT. I aim to help students maximize their performance on test day through a combination of analytics, neuroscience, and psychology. My lesson plan is tailored for each student, and my approach is highly interactive. And the results speak for themselves; my students' score gains regularly triple or quadruple...

TEST PREP: I obtained perfect scores on both the SAT and the ACT, as well as 99th percentile results on the PSAT, GRE, and LSAT. I aim to help students maximize their performance on test day through a combination of analytics, neuroscience, and psychology. My lesson plan is tailored for each student, and my approach is highly interactive. And the results speak for themselves; my students' score gains regularly triple or quadruple gains in Kaplan's expensive classroom courses.

I was a National AP Scholar in high school and provide AP test prep to the extent my work schedule allows. Because each AP test covers significant amounts of material, I generally only accept AP students currently or previously enrolled in the corresponding AP course. I recently have prepared students for the Physics, Chemistry, and U.S. Government exams. I obtained scores of "5" on each of those exams and the other five AP exams listed below.

COLLEGE COUNSELING: I formerly worked as an international education consultant and professor, which deeply familiarized me with what colleges seek in applicants. I bring that amassed knowledge to bear in my counseling sessions, where I help students brainstorm, structure their narrative, and polish their final applications to be candid and compelling. My students have gained admission to elite schools including Harvard, Stanford, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Pennsylvania.

ADDENDUM: At Wyzant's suggestion, I here report some of my test results.

SAT: 1600
ACT: 36
PSAT/NMSQT: 231 (old scale, 99th percentile and National Merit Scholar)

Excellent, Thorough, Well Planned

Christopher tutored my son for the SATs. He was exceptionally thorough and intentional in his approach. He was able, through exercises and practice tests, to determine what areas my son needed to work on and then helped him with strategies to strengthen these areas. Christopher interacted well with my son, was professional and always on time. We highly recommend him!

SAT help on short notice

As a parent we do our best to help our children. My son has been studying for his October SAT with much help provided with many ‘prep’ courses. He needed that extra help a few days prior to the test and I was flustered how can I find someone on such short notice who was academically prepared for such a task. I submitted request to some tutors on Wyzant and was denied as this was difficult due to the short time availability. I was pleased when Christopher "squeezed" my son into his busy schedule and I am happy to say my son was appreciative of the help he gave on some topics that he had trouble with. I am also a professional with a master’s degree unknown to Christopher. 😆 As I reviewed his interaction with my son I had to give five stars for his professionalism, his knowledge and patience throughout the lesson. I am especially grateful to him for accepting my son in such short notice. Thank you Chris and to all who are looking for help academically, I recommend Christopher.

Focused, Individualized

I am consistently impressed with the individualized work plan Christopher creates for my son each week. Christopher’s attention to detail as it relates to my son’s learning and shortcomings is impressive. BRAVO, Christopher! With much gratitude!

Individualized approach

Chris customized the review based my son’s academic need and availability to meet the overall goal for the summer. My son enjoyed the pace and his approach. This is a challenging summer for my son with other activities taking up most of his time. I am glad that Chris is willing to work with him to individualize the review just for my son!
