Bio

I am formerly a member of staff at Saddleback College, Mission Viejo, California, where I tutored Mathematics and Chemistry in the Learning Resource Center (LRC). In the Spring of 2012, I was honored by being the only tutor ever to be appointed to the 300 Club, the highest award given for tutoring at the college.

I also tutor school students and my youngest so far has been in 4th Grade. My aim is to ensure that my students develop a good basic understanding of the subject so that their self confidence increases and with it their enjoyment of learning. Their success is reflected in their smiles and improving grades.

Elementary Math

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of the pillars of Math. Variables such as x and y are used represent unknown numbers until their values can be determined. Fortunately, there aren’t too many things you have to memorize in Algebra. It's mainly intuitive. Once you know the techniques, you will be amazed at how powerful they can be. Topics in Algebra 1 include handling linear equations and inequalities, graphing, word problems, exponents and radicals, quadratic equations and factoring. Just let me know what you need help with.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Certification test passed with 100% score. Algebra 2 is where you build upon the foundation established in Algebra 1. Topics include linear and quadratic equations, functions and inverses, graphing and translating, exponents, radicals and logarithms. I can help you with these. So much of Math is an application of functions and a good knowledge of Algebra will serve you well and provide an excellent foundation if you go on to take Trigonometry, Precalculus and Calculus.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

Today, for obvious safety reasons, fewer chemical experiments involving reactions are taught in the lab class. Much more of the work is theoretical. I make a point of bringing chemistry alive by describing what the chemicals look like and how the reactions proceed. Wherever possible I use visuals from selected textbooks. This makes such a difference for my students and is reflected in their success.
Geometry,

Geometry

Certification test passed with 100% score.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra is the key stepping stone between Elementary Math and Algebra 1. I do not recommend skipping Prealgebra. It introduces important concepts and some aspects of Geometry that will be essential going forward. It is always best to take Math step by step and build a firm foundation. This way , you will enjoy the subject and it will benefit you greatly.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Certification test passed with 100% score. Precalculus is, as the name suggests, a course which prepares the student for Calculus, the main pillars of which are Algebra and Trigonometry. A good knowledge of both subjects is essential for progress in Math. I have considerable experience of helping students overcome difficulties and succeed in these subjects.
SAT Math

SAT Math

Certification test passed with 100% score. I have extensive experience in tutoring all of the Math subjects that comprise SAT Math namely Pre-Algebra, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, Coordinate Geometry, Plane Geometry, and Trigonometry. I also try to make the experience enjoyable for my students.

Knowledgeable and patient

He understands what it takes to help students to get through the problems. He’s also very patient and accommodating if you need his help. My daughter had only a few sessions with him, but seemed like she’s getting it.

Christine, 5 lessons with Chris

Knowledge, patient and accommodating

Fabulous lesson. Patient and ensured that the lesson was understood. Went over concepts in a way she could understand and didn’t just supply an answer but included her in the process and why it is that way which is very helpful for her.

Keri, 4 lessons with Chris

Great tutor

Professor Chris is the person to go to for Chem and Math. He is awesome and our kids are doing much much better in school. Professor Chris is honest and really cares about his students.

William , 84 lessons with Chris

Knowledgeable and Professional

Even though I scheduled last minute, Chris made time for the session. He was very knowledgeable about the subject and he explained it in an easy way. I definitely would reach out to him again for future sessions!

Youna, 4 lessons with Chris

Great Acid & base reactants Tutor

This is my second review for Chris. We have been working together for about 4 months and I am at the end of my chemistry course! All I can say is I couldn’t have done it without him, he has managed to fit me in to his busy schedule and I have done very well in my class, 2% away from an A. He is a great chemistry tutor and I plan to work with him when I take a higher level chemistry. If I could rate him 6 stars I would!

Dion, 44 lessons with Chris

AWESOME LESSON

As a student, I believe in understanding every formula and equation while still having a fun and energetic teacher. Professor Chris has all of those traits and more. After my first lesson, I decided that Professor Chris's lessons were the best of the best because he goes into every little detail. If a problem was a wig, Professor Chris would pick out each hair or detail one by one. He's also very fun to work with because he's always cracking a joke or saying something funny. Overall, I think Professor Chris is an amazing math teacher.

Peigi, 13 lessons with Chris

Knowledge and patient with my son.

He was very helpful and helped clarify some things about Algebra . He made my son feel comfortable and at ease. He took his time explaining things in a way Jacob could understand.

Jina, 1 lesson with Chris

Great math instructor for our kids ages 11, 9, and 6.

Chris understands math forwards and backward and is able to help each of our kid's progress at their own pace. He has patience and a great demeanor about him, which helps each student feel comfortable.

Brandon, 20 lessons with Chris

Knowledgeable, patient, smart and caring

My son recently started chemistry help from Chris. J. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, patient and easy to understand, likes being tutored by Chris. My son is hoping to do better in his Chemistry test.
