Credentialed Math Teacher
I am currently working as a middle school math teacher, teaching grades 6-8, from pre-algebra, to algebra 1, through geometry. Previously I have worked at the high school level, mostly focusing on algebra 2 and pre-calculus. Given this experience and such a wide range of learners, I believe that I can match my approach to your specific needs. I truly enjoy helping math learners uncover their own negative dispositions toward the subject by helping them build confidence through sound strategies...
I am currently working as a middle school math teacher, teaching grades 6-8, from pre-algebra, to algebra 1, through geometry. Previously I have worked at the high school level, mostly focusing on algebra 2 and pre-calculus. Given this experience and such a wide range of learners, I believe that I can match my approach to your specific needs. I truly enjoy helping math learners uncover their own negative dispositions toward the subject by helping them build confidence through sound strategies and building blocks. My favorite moments are helping a student move from complete frustration and confusion to the overwhelming satisfaction of knowing "I can do this!"
I consistently hear from my students that they appreciate finally "understanding" the material after working with me. This stems from my desire to never rush a student through any topic. I am patient, encouraging and supportive in helping students define and reach their goals.
I have a bachelor's degree in mathematics as well as a bachelor's degree in secondary education from Providence College. I am comfortable working with students through Pre-Calculus. I am blessed to have found a job that I truly enjoy. I hope to be able to share this passion with you.
As a sophomore taking Algebra 2 and geometry, balancing the two courses hasn't been the easiest task. And falling behind on concepts in Algebra 2 has brought my grade down quite a lot. When i started tutoring with Christopher, my stress was almost immediately put to rest. He is not only greatly skilled in Algebra 2 but is an amazing, understanding and patient teacher.Monica, 29 lessons with Christopher

Makes Math Understandable!
I highly recommend Christopher. We hired him to help my daughter pass her SDSU summer math class. My daughter said she never would have passed without his help. She said she was 'clueless' on certain concepts that he made understandable. It was night and day after just 3 sessions. We are so happy we found him on Wyzant.com!Lorie, 5 lessons with Christopher
Very patient and knowledgeable tutor
Mr. Christopher was very patient throughout the lesson and made sure I understood each concept clearly before moving on. He taught everything very quickly and professionally. He seemed to know his things. Definitely recommend this tutor.Renee, 1 lesson with Christopher

First lesson was done online. Chris was very knowledgeable and my daughter was super comfortable working with him that she's already scheduled another tutor session.Kim, 2 lessons with Christopher
My daughter loved her first tutoring session!
After spending an hour with Christopher, my daughter was giddy with confidence about her math skills. Christopher was amazingly patient with her, and he showed her math games that she can do online anytime. He helped her understand basic math concepts, which I hope will continue with future lessons.Mara, 3 lessons with Christopher
