KWANTLEN POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY STUDENT
“I got accepted to the program!!! I got the call this morning while I was at work. I was so happy I started crying
Chris thank you so much for helping me make my dreams come true. You are an incredible teacher and designer, I had so much fun working with you!
I will write a review on your website this weekend. Thank you so so much, you had a huge part in how happy I feel right now.”
I worked with Chris on preparing my entrance portfolio for the fashion design program at Kwantlen’s Polytechnic University. He taught me drafting and sewing from October until May of last year as I had to have ten garments with my application.
I found Chris extremely helpful and skilled at what he does. He was both patient and knowledgeable about everything I asked him and I found myself learning so much more than what the classes were described as.
He has an extensive professional background and so much insight into design, drafting, business, and the fashion industry as a whole. I looked forward to my sessions with him and always walked away with so much accomplished.
He is very organized and efficient with his teaching, working at an industry pace, but very supportive and encouraging. I found myself, now in the very fast paced fashion design program, very comfortable with the expectations of my teachers, while a lot of students struggled in the beginning, and that is all because of my work with Chris.
I set goals with Chris in the beginning, so that he knew what I needed to have completed for my interview and he was excellent at keeping us on track and planning both the short term and long term goals that needed to get done. Not only did I get accepted but I won an award for the strongest portfolio out of 45 people who interviewed.
He showed so much dedication and often went way beyond his responsibilities as a teacher, thinking about my garments before and after my classes and even met me at a fabric store twice to help me choose appropriate fabrics.
In addition to his professionalism, I found Chris a joy to work with, he is so warm and positive and clearly very enthusiastic about his work.
Please feel free to contact me for any further questions.
