Ben Fisher


I taught English literature and creative writing for five years at the Crystal Springs Uplands School in Hillsborough, California. During this time, I also worked closely with the school’s college counseling office to assist students with their undergraduate admissions essays. I still return to Crystal seasonally and during the summer to teach writing workshops. I recently completed my masters at UC San Diego, and have relocated to Chicago for a playwriting residency. I specialize in all areas of the humanities, college admissions essays, verbal ACT/SAT prep, and creative writing. I’m passionate about literature, the arts, and I enjoy sharing that passion with young people. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, walking the dog, going to the theater, and watching football.
