English, Peer Tutoring, & SAT Prep

Prior to teaching at CPS, Chris worked for nearly a decade as a freelance writer, copy editor, and private tutor. “At Community Prep, I get to interact every day with incredible people who often have much more to teach me than I have to teach them. One of my greatest passions is encouraging students to interact with the human experience through critical thought, careful use of texts, and constructive discourse.”

Social Studies & Life Coach

“I came to CPS after years of working with high school students in faith-based and outdoor educational environments. Substitute teaching and tutoring led me to pursue work in a high school. Working at Community Prep is an opportunity to encourage students to find their own educational path, and to help them prepare for the future they envision for themselves.”
