Nice to meet you! I'm an experienced teacher, both in the classroom and privately, for kids of all ages. I've taught multiple SAT and ACT (math and English) prep courses at Da Vinci Public Charter School in El Segundo. I also spent a year in Vietnam, where I taught English and test preparation for students in elementary through high school. I received my CELTA (Cambridge University) certification in HCMC for teaching English as a foreign language, and I'm now semi-fluent in Vietnamese. :) I...
Nice to meet you! I'm an experienced teacher, both in the classroom and privately, for kids of all ages. I've taught multiple SAT and ACT (math and English) prep courses at Da Vinci Public Charter School in El Segundo. I also spent a year in Vietnam, where I taught English and test preparation for students in elementary through high school. I received my CELTA (Cambridge University) certification in HCMC for teaching English as a foreign language, and I'm now semi-fluent in Vietnamese. :) I particularly like working with young children and instilling a love of learning early.
I started college at 14 at Cal State LA, and have had a well-rounded education of upper-division English classes (American/Classical Greek literature) and math up to calculus. I ultimately followed my love of plays as a written form and graduated with a BA in Theater Arts. I've been tutoring most of my professional life, but I'm also passionate about screenwriting. If you love creative writing, TV, or movies, we'll definitely get along.
I create a respectful and supportive atmosphere, while I help each client accomplish his or her goals. I want my students to have confidence in themselves and their own intelligence. Everyone learns differently; sometimes it just takes someone with the patience to figure out what works best for that individual.
I go out of my way to make problem sets for my students to work on, and I will gladly provide and/or recommend additional material.

Christopher went over some pre-algebra math with my 13 yr old. He is very nice, well mannered, and patient. He made the lesson fun, my daughter liked him, and she learned exactly what she needed to in order to prepare for a test.Lori, 1 lesson with Christopher
Very patient and knowledgeable
Christopher is very patient and takes his time to explain the assignment or project. I had a project that involved writing annotated bibliographies and it involved locating and reading tedious articles and journals. Some were very lengthy and I was a bit overwhelmed but he was very helpful in breaking down the information. He was able to help me summarize the articles/journals (which had technical jargon) in terms I could understand.Christina, 1 lesson with Christopher

This was my first experience with a tutor and I'm glad my mom chose Christopher. He took the time to explain and make sure I understood before moving on. I would recommend his services and will use them again.Billye, 2 lessons with Christopher

Christopher is awesome! He tutored me in English and helped me edit my essay for class, and he gave me tips on how to write better. We also started working on analyzing Hamlet for my next assignment. He gave me some good hints that got me really thinking about the play. I would definitely work with him again.Lauren, 1 lesson with Christopher
