I have only written one other internet review before today, as time is limited and I don't have the inclination, unless the experience is truly a 'stand alone' experience. My son (10 y/o) came to Chris as a 4th grade student. He had begun his studies in a new school in September and then was offered enrollment in a charter school the last week of October. With these changes (teachers, curriculum), and the not so intense love of mathematics, came the "D" grade for the first trimester. That's when Chris entered our lives and within one trimester we are on the "A" team in mathematics!!
What's really amazing about Chris, beyond his unquestionable and admirable knowledge of mathematics, is his ability to understand the child he is working with and quietly win them over to share in his excitement of mathematics and to recognize their own abilities to achieve the task at hand. Chris is a seasoned and knowledgeable professor who is astute in recognizing where your child's interests are and how to bridge those interests into the amazing world of mathematics. He is patient, fun, encouraging and strict all at the right times. He is able to quickly evaluate and identify any deficits or problems and give the student and their parents the direction and the road map to successfully correct those deficits.
As a parent I admit that I am very discriminating with regard to the academic setting, implementation of curriculum and the instructor/teacher support that my child receives. I can say that Chris has taken my sons dislike for mathematics and turned it into understanding, respect and successful abilities. He enjoys going to his lessons with Chris and is proud when he does well and that he is already starting 5th grade math problems over the summer. If you want your child to not only do well in mathematics but also develop a love for it, then this is the tutor you should pursue. Chris is available and flexible with advice/appointments as well. He has always gotten back to me in a very timely fashion and has worked very hard to accommodate our often changing schedule. Truly, you couldn't ask for anything more. I recommend Chris 1000% to students and parents alike!
I came to Chris for help with my intro chemistry class. He was helpful in explaining the concepts of chemistry, as well as the specifics that I had questions with. I would go back for more lessons.
Chris is a fantastic tutor. He has helped my daughter understand algebra 2/trig and gain confidence in the class. She is doing much better and we greatly appreciate his talent in teaching.
Now that we are done with this school year and my daughter finished her finals and got her "A" in the class, I would like to add few things to my comment. Chris, we can't thank you enough for all your great help, your patience, your accommodations in scheduling, seeing my daughter very early or very late before her exams. You are just AMAZING! She couldn't have done it without you. You are very sweet and knowledgeable, and know how to explain things in a simple easy way. THANK YOU so very much. Have a great summer and see you soon for her next class.
Chris is a very competent and enthusiastic tutor, he knows his math in and out, and he clearly enjoys sharing his insights and making difficult concepts seem easy.
Chris is an amazing tutor, extremely patient and knows how to clear your doubts when you struggle with a problem. He has tutored me in math and chemistry and has even advised me for an English essay. He makes sure you understand before moving on and he also gives you advice with each subject and how to succeed.
Chris is a wonderfully intelligent tutor! He has an enthusiastic attitude and a love of Chemistry that is highly contagious. He evaluated my individual needs, customized the curriculum, and instructed in a manner that made it a joy to learn!
I had the absolute pleasure to be tutored by Chris over the past few months. I had a major fear or concern over dealing with Chemistry and at the same time I needed to do well! I want to attend medical school! The approach that Chris took with me was so fabulous and effective and patient that it did not only truly teach me the subject better than any professor could, but he actually got me so excited about the subject matter and I thereby internalized such great level of confidence that I went on talking about chemistry as it exists in our everyday life and I did that with passion!!! I did it so much that my wife said I must have gone nuts! But the truth is that I used this method of "applying" it to everyday life as a way of truly learning it! Chris, to me, was not just a tutor but a trusted friend that I can count on! Oh by the way I am 55 years old and Chris indeed managed to teach an old dog "new tricks"! I am very happy to say that I am now accepted to Medical School and maybe my long life dream of learning medicine will actually come true!!! Furthermore, I am now inviting Chris to tutor my daughter as well and help her in her Chemistry classes as she prepares for graduate science studies in Nutrition. Thank you Chris for all you do!!! You are the best
I am happy to give Chris my highest recommendation. He helped my grandson pass the College Algebra Prerequisite and is now tutoring him in College Algebra. He has always been patient and gave my grandson the tools to succeed. He went above and beyond what is expected of a tutor. Chris understands the math and is able to communicate it effectively to students. I am grateful we found him.
Chris made room in his busy Saturday schedule--even working beyond his normal working hours--to accommodate our daughter for Alg 2 tutoring. My husband and I were very impressed with his professionalism and his thoroughness. Chris not only assisted our daughter way beyond the one hour block of time but also hand wrote seven pages of personal math tips and notes to assist our daughter in her final review before taking her Alg 2 test. We recommend Chris to any parent looking for a math tutor for their son or daughter. He patiently explained problem solving strategies and kindly corrected mistakes. Our daughter left understanding how to solve the problems on her worksheet and how to self-check her answers based on tips from the notes. (Also, Chris allowed my husband and I to stay in the same working area with our daughter--they were in the dining room and we were in the living room. We felt very comfortable and relaxed in his lovely, quiet home!) We give him '5 Stars!'
Chris is a very great tutor who covers a subject very well. Very patient and explained in detail until his student clearly understands, very flexible and is willing to fit the student's schedule. We're happy to send my son to Chris for tutoring. Thanks a lot Chris.
Chris is very patient, and very easy to understand when we go over the assignments. He explains things very well, so I leave there feeling like I understand what I am doing. Chris is great! Chris really is the best!!!
His love for math is apparent. He works well with my son. Hopefully, soon, my son will catch some of that love for math!
My son enjoyed lesson today, felt they had accomplished a lot in a short time. I saw the confidence in my son's face today. Thank you Chris!
Best tutor I've ever had. He's flexible, nice and extremely knowledgeable. UNLIKE some tutors who want to rush through some things and briefly cover topics, Chris covers topics thoroughly and makes sure you understand the material and ties things together in ways you wouldn't have seen otherwise. He actually cares about how you do in your class. Great guy, great tutor.
My daughter had a wonderful experience with Chris. He was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. She felt liked he truly cared about her success in her math class!
I am going to let my daughter write: Mr. J was very patient and he was very keen on making chemistry interesting. I don't think my own chemistry teacher in high school could provide me with the history behind chemistry theories/laws/equations.
Chris is an absolutely amazing tutor. He has helped me significantly on my journey through college algebra. He is punctual and willing to help any way possible. I know I can count on him to give me a better understanding of the material and explain concepts I am having trouble with clearly.
Thanks a lot Chris, the short time we spent together on the first session really helped me understand a couple of things I was having trouble with. Looking forward to more meetings.
Chris is very knowledgeable in math. He is currently tutoring my daughter in Algebra and she says he is easily understood and patient. He has taught her to approach problems in some different ways. Chris comes prepared and really tries to understand what my daughter is struggling with.
