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...

Best Out There
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!

Excellent tutor !
I have three children and Chris has tutored all of them at one time (Geometry, Algebra, honors precalculus) for the past 2 years. He is extremely patient, organized and an excellent teacher from remedial to gifted students. I have tried many tutors and nobody compares to him. HM

Big help
Chris worked with my son Jake a second time with geometry. Took time to really explain the problems and made sure Jake understood the material. Jake definitely feels like he is better prepared for his upcoming midterm. We will definitely be working with Chris again.

Chris helped my daughter with Algebra 2 and was very knowledgeable and patient. In the end he did an overview of the lesson. My daughter also said that she likes him, we will definitely be using him again.

Knowledgeable, patient, and great at identifying skills to use for strategy and understanding, not just memorizing
Skills and strategies, sound methodology, full grasp of material. He was innovative and helped me figure it out with him, not just didactically handing me formulas or statically teaching. Wish he was my teacher in class!

This was my daughter’s first lesson with Chris, and I was truly impressed with his knowledge and ability to break down the math problems for my daughter to understand. My daughter has been struggling with Trigonometry and any discussion of Trig just stresses her out. After 10 minutes in the lesson, she was actually smiling and asking questions. She is looking forward to her next lesson.

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.

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.

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.
