About Chris

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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

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.
