Chris's Bio

Chris was an English major at Kenyon College, where he graduated with honors and received the annual award for best essay. He was the editor of Kenyon's literary magazine and served as a peer writing tutor for other undergraduates. Now pursuing a PhD in English at the University of Chicago, Chris teaches undergraduate courses in literature and has tutored writing at the University of Chicago Lab School.

Ever since he was a child, Chris has known that he wanted to teach. He is particularly fond of tutoring because it offers the clearest view of a student's improvement over time. He likes to work with learners of all levels, from struggling high schoolers to precocious undergrads. He has helped his students draft successful applications to Ivy League schools and top-tier PhD programs.

"The great thing about tutoring," Chris says, "is that it's dynamic and precise. A tutor can customize lessons for a given student with an accuracy unavailable even to the world's best lecturer." He always modifies his teaching plan to match the needs and interests of a particular student. "I want to show the student, whenever possible, how a topic can be relevant to his life, and to think of him not just as a student but as a person."

In his free time, Chris is an avid cook. He especially enjoys Mexican and Chinese food, and he grows his own chiles for salsas and moles. He also likes to camp, hike, and backpack. Although he loves living in a major city, he needs to surround himself with trees on a regular basis!
