I started teaching a few years ago when I realized I got a lot more satisfaction from informal, one-on-one relationships than from climbing the professional ladder -- and with degrees from Yale, Yale Law, and UC Berkeley, I was climbing pretty well. I had been a legal reporter, journalist, and book writer -- still am, sometimes -- but after writing a book on Habitat for Humanity, I was hooked on doing meaningful work...and that meant project-based work like teaching and tutoring. I've taught...
English and History. He is really good!! Chris is very knowledgeable and loves teaching. I will definitely recommend him if you really want to succeed in college.

Chris shared good feedback after the 1:1 class. Good insight on finding out the student weakness of repetition, unnecessary details etc. Good to set the goal to "tighten up".

I have struggled with my University application's personal statement for months and seen several writing tutors at my school. In only an hour, Chris helped to organize my thoughts and re-structure/organize my entire ~1500 word essay. Chris pointed out and made the "weaknesses" of my paper clear. I highly recommend Chris as a writing tutor. It was well worth it, and I now have a much clearer idea of what University admission wants! Thank you!

Chris is true to his description. His teaching style is low-key and laid back but he knows how to engage and inspire students to want to use the power of words in their own writing. Chris has been working wonders with my son, who is 13 and the ultimate reluctant, minimalist writer. With his thoughtful and creative assignments, Chris has been able to extract some incredible and expansive writing from my son. And, my son is having fun with it! In his feedback, Chris has used the same terms that my son's 8th grade teachers use and I believe that the one-on-one attention and feedback that Chris provides are essential to my son ultimately finding his own "voice" in his writing. Chris has been extremely easy to work with. He is flexible, responsive to emails, and a genuinely nice guy who will not only inspire your child but also will inspire you with his interesting life and many charitable works.
