After working for a number of years as a development chemist and a software engineer in the medical instrumentation field, and serving as a youth soccer coach for a dozen years, I made a transition to the education field. I am certified to teach middle school and high school math, and high school chemistry and physics in Massachusetts, and have taught chemistry, including AP Chemistry, and physics for five years. I have also been successfully tutoring high school and college students in chemistry, physics, computer programming, and topics in mathematics from pre-algebra to statistics and advanced calculus, as well as SSAT, SAT, and ACT test preparation for over ten years. I can help you, too. References are available upon request.

Chris was a great tutor who is very knowledgeable on the areas of programming languages and computers. He helped me with all the questions I needed help with and helped me figure out how to write 2 programs I was struggling on. However, he often gave me too much information which digressed from the main idea at hand which made the task longer than necessary. Overall I think Chris did a thorough job but could have focused mainly about the problems I had so that we could figure out in the most efficient and complete way how to solve the problem.
To my esteemed colleagues and perhaps parents seeking a quality tutor,
I have recently had the pleasure of working with Chris (Christopher) J. Chris is an extremely intelligent man who is versatile in skill and accommodating in nature. He quickly adapted to me as a person, and I am a bit effusive at times, and helped me tackle some very complicated graduate level material for a course in advanced programming and information structures with a particular focus on Java. His decades of experience in programming were appreciated, and his skills and mastery of mathematics, both quantitative and qualitative, were revealed through the unspoken reality of his methodology for solutions to advanced algorithms- they were like second nature. Moreover, his ability to simplify complicated routines into tangible, easy to learn systems, was absolutely remarkable. I would not have succeeded in this course without him. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking someone who will listen well and respond accurately to specific needs. He has an ability to filter through confusion and effusive output and return with an output representing the precise material at hand, the material I was trying to handle-- all invaluable for attributes of a mentor, and someone I regard as a friend.
He is obviously a well seasoned tutor and I am happy to personally provide him this reference and am openly willing to be contacted on his behalf for anyone considering him.
With utmost sincerity,
.. onwards in my most challenging experience thus far thanks to Chris,
Christopher has helped me so much in my second term of AP Chemistry. Working with him only for an hour every other week brought my average up nearly 10 points from first term! He is unbelievably patient and is happy to explain things in a different way if you do not understand, and he is very positive towards all that he does. He is enthusiastic to work with you, and he will help to make even your least favorite topics more fun and interesting. He mixes his intelligence with being able to understand the difficulties that a student faces. He will work through every homework problem during your session and never fails to answer an emergency phone call for help. Speaking of phone calls, he communicates great through phone and email. If you are looking for a tutor in science and/or math, Chris is the only person I would recommend!
Christopher is a very good tutor and provided critical support in my daughter's Subject Chemistry preparation. As a result, my daughter was able to get 800 on the test. We are very happy with his work!
My son thinks Christopher is brilliant and a wonderful tutor. He is kind, considerate and respectful. We highly recommend this tutor! He is the best!
Highly recommended. He's a great teacher, very affable, and knows his stuff. You'll learn and be ready for your big assignment!
Perfect for a high end student. He is great at helping think through concepts and relating them to real world and would be perfect for taking a high end student to the next level. Not a good fit for a younger student who is struggling with doing day to day work as he tends to digress into the larger concepts.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
My C++ programming experience, which has been built on both assembly language and C, includes embedded systems and Windows applications. I have developed real-time embedded applications for biomedical instrumentation, and multi-threaded GUI applications for Windows computers. I also have developed applications in other languages, such as Java, Python and Perl, and have used this experience to help other programmers understand the philosophical differences between and the relative strengths and weaknesses of the various C++ programming constructs available for solving different problems.
I have been programming computers, from 8-bit embedded processors to desktop systems, for thirty years. I have programmed in a wide variety of languages, including assembly language. I have studied the role of compilers and linkers (which are now usually hidden from the programmer within the development environment) and the effect that they can have on the machine-language code that the processor actually executes.
The ISEE, or Independent School Entrance Exam, is a test just under 3 hours in length that covers verbal and quantitative reasoning skills, reading comprehension and math achievement for students entering the 5th through 12th grades. Because of this wide range of grades, there are 3 levels of tests: Lower, for grades 5 and 6, Middle, for grades 7 and 8, and Upper, for grades 9 through 12. Because your child's results are scored and compared only with others entering the same grade, your child should not worry about encountering material he or she has not covered before in his or her classes.
