Teaching since:

I am a professional designer and researcher who has successfully taught students of all experience levels in a range of subjects including architecture, college-application essays, design software, English, and math. I graduated from Columbia, and I am passionate about helping others learn.

My strengths include working with students to visualize and achieve their goals, discovering areas for improvement, and, most importantly, getting results. My students have gone from zero knowledge in architecture and design software to full literacy. My students have increased English and math scores both in the classroom and on exams. Finally, with my coaching, students have written college application essays that earned them a place at prestigious institutions such as Columbia, Cornell, and Harvard, among others.

I live in the New York City area and enjoy working with both in-person and online students.

Christopher is very friendly and knowledgeable. I'm new to Photoshop, but our lessons help me learn more and more each time we meet. Highly recommend this instructor!
