Bio

I have taught high school and college chemistry for eight years. Before teaching, I earned my B.S. in Chemistry from The College of William and Mary and M.S. in Chemistry from Georgia Tech. At Georgia Tech, I did research in organic and polymer chemistry, but ultimately found my passion in teaching.

I have taught high school and college chemistry for eight years. Before teaching, I earned my B.S. in Chemistry from The College of William and Mary and M.S. in Chemistry from Georgia Tech. At Georgia Tech, I did research in organic and polymer chemistry, but ultimately found my passion in teaching.

I enjoy helping students excel in chemistry and seeing them achieve the outcomes they hoped for. In my years of teaching and tutoring, I have found that when students work problems with the proper scaffolding and guidance, they can most effectively progress in their learning. My goal is to provide the optimal environment for the student to succeed.

I am available to tutor all levels of chemistry ranging from 10th grade chemistry to college-level organic chemistry. I am familiar with the AP Chemistry exam, as I have taught the AP class for six years and also served as an AP Chemistry grader.

Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Organic Chemistry

I earned an M.S. in Chemistry from Georgia Tech. While there, I specialized in Organic and Polymer Chemistry, synthesizing and studying hyperbranched poly(paraethynylene)'s for sensing purposes. I was the top organic chemistry student in my undergraduate class at the College of William and Mary. I have tutored Organic Chemistry at the college level and have taught general chemistry for eight years at the college level, as well as eight years in high-school chemistry.

Knowledgeable, prompt and patient

Chris has been helping my son for the last couple of months. He is very knowledgeable about the subject (Chemistry). He is very effective explaining the concepts. He is very prompt every time and patient. We highly recommend him.

AP Chem tutor

My son needed a tutor to help him study for his high school AP Chem final. Chris was perfect for the job. One specific comment my son made — I really get what he’s teaching me.

Very capable and helpful tutor

Chris was available on request at the last minute. He jumped in and helped my daughter understand complex chemistry concepts. She found him very helpful and fun to work with.

Very Knowledgeable about Chemistry

Chris is very knowledgeable about chemistry and is very good at teaching chemistry. He doesn't just give you the answer, but helps really understand the concept.

Knowledgeable and relatable turor

I am in college chemistry and Chris has really helped me greatly when so few people have even known the material. He is patient and explains things well. He also has shown me different ways to do problems that actually make more sense. I would recommend him to anyone.

Focused and concise

Chris was great at identifying exactly where I went wrong and was equally great at re-routing the direction of my thought process. Would totally recommend.
