Experienced Math and Chemistry Tutor
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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
