Chris Jacques

Chris, a 2008 graduate of Vassar College, has been working full-time as a tutor since 2010. Previously, Chris worked as an associate director for a college admissions advisory company, where he coached applicants on their college essay, advised applicants on college choice, and interviewed college admissions directors. Students that Chris has advised in the past currently attend such institutions as Duke, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Penn, Michigan, and Reed College. Chris majored in Modern European History in college, giving him a great background to tutor students in subjects like AP Literature, Language, US History, World History, and European History. Yet Chris is by no means limited to tutoring subjects in the Humanities. His experiences in college admissions advising helped him build up strong skills in test preparation and strategy, and he is one of the most popular tutors in our network for the SAT and ACT as well as the SHSAT and ISEE/SSAT tests. Chris has tutored dozens of 8th graders for the SHSAT and ISEE/SSAT tests, and his former students now attend such schools as Bronx Science, Stuyvesant, HSMSE, LaGuardia, Lawrenceville School, and Horace Mann. He also enjoys teaching high school math subjects up through Calculus, including Geometry, Algebra II, Trigonometry, and Pre-Calculus. Chris lives in Brooklyn with his fiancee.
