I am a mechanical engineering student about to graduate with a math minor. I love to teach and believe that a good tutoring relationship improves the mental well-being of everyone involved. I have completed all of the advanced math, science, and engineering courses and carry a good GPA.

I have also passed the Fundamentals of Engineering licensing exam and scored in the 95th percentile on the GRE. In addition to my studies at the University, I also am a research assistant in the Robotics and Motion Lab which gives me a great deal of enjoyment and intellectual stimulation.

I have a history of teaching math to students of all ages. I possess a talent and a passion for math which I work hard to instill in others.

As an engineering student, I am well versed in many branches of science, especially physics. I find all sciences endlessly fascinating, and believe that all students can build a love of science.

I scored in the 98th percentile on the SATs, including the reading portion. I have tutored several past students who have achieved significant increases in their scores.

My schedule is flexible, and I would love to meet with you and hopefully help you. Please contact me with any questions.

SAT Reading

I have tutored many high school students in SAT Reading, resulting in substantial improvements in scores and confidence. I teach students not only the concepts that are applied during the test, but also the process of analyzing and developing ideas. Improving these skills not only gives students a better understanding of the subject, but greater confidence in their ability to read and write thoughtfully.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, and Calculus are all core parts of a solid mathematics education. I teach students all the tools they need to be successful and confident in math. This means teaching more than just the core concepts. It also means teaching students the logical process of analyzing, understanding, and thinking through a problem. This, above all else, increases a student's confidence and develops life-long math literacy.

Biology, Chemistry, and Geology are all core parts of a solid education in the Physical Sciences. I teach students all the tools they need to be successful and confident in science. This means teaching more than just the core concepts. It also means teaching students the logical process of analyzing, understanding, and thinking through questions. This, above all else, increases a student's confidence and develops life-long science literacy.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have been studying Calculus since my sophomore year in high school. My Engineering degree and Mathematics minor both involve extensive training in advanced mathematical concepts. Calculus lies at the core of many of these concepts, and is a subject I am very familiar with.
Chemistry,

Chemistry

I have studied Chemistry at the middle school, high school, and university level. I also have tutored students at each of these levels. Chemistry is a primary science, and highly valuable to a student's science literacy. I teach students the concepts necessary to success in Chemistry, as well as the process of intelligent analysis and problem solving.
Geometry,

Geometry

As an Engineering major, and a Mathematics minor, I have many years of education in Geometry. In addition to studying Geometry directly, it also been a principal component of all advanced mathematics. Tutoring mathematics of all kinds is also something I am experienced in, teaching students the fundamental principles as well as the problem solving process to ensure success.
Physics,

Physics

I have enjoyed and excelled at physics since taking Honors Physics in high school. My Mechanical Engineering degree requires extensive knowledge and application of advanced physics concepts. I also have tutored other students who were struggling. As a result, I have extensive practice in using and teaching physics.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I first learned the basics of Pre-Algebra in 6th grade, and have been developing my mathematics skills ever since. From Pre-Algebra through advanced Calculus, I have tutored many students in mathematics and witnessed the tremendous improvements in their scores and their confidence. I feel that it is valuable for students to develop a good foundation in mathematics early, so they are confident and strong in math as they advance.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

My education in Pre-Calculus and Calculus began early in high school, and has been a crucial component of my entire education since. As a result, I have extensive practical experience in applying and teaching all levels of Calculus. While many students find advanced forms of math intimidating, I find that most are actually quite capable of success. A little guidance to teach the students how to analyze and think through a problem gives students the confidence to tackle what they once thought they couldn't.

Very Happy

My son had almost given up on his high school physics class. Chris is excellent at explaining both how to work problems and the concepts behind them. After just one session with Chris, my son regained much of his confidence, and no longer feels doomed to fail the course. As a parent, I'm so grateful and relieved to have found such a good tutor.
