Chris developed an interest in language learning from an early age and majored in Linguistics at the University of Chicago. As an undergrad, he also volunteered as an Admissions Ambassador, counseling students from his hometown applying to UChicago. After graduation, he taught English at the elementary and middle schools on a small island in southern Japan. He then went on to receive a master’s degree in International Education at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and has supported higher education programs in California, Pakistan, and all over Asia. This work has made him especially attuned to the needs of students interested in applying to US colleges. He’s passionate about building students’ English writing skills and developing their intellectual passions. Chris is originally from Pensacola, Florida and enjoys connecting with students, learning languages, and visiting new countries.
