About Christopher


Bio

I've been working with students aged 7-17 for the past 5+ years in an after school setting. Given this experience and such a wide range of learners, I believe that I can match my approach to your specific needs.

I've been working with students aged 7-17 for the past 5+ years in an after school setting. 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.

Efficient, Knowledgeable, and Patient

Christopher listens to the needs of the student and gives useful, positive feedback. He is prompt and prepared to teach. His directions were clear and concise, demonstrating his command of the subject matter.

Colleen, 5 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!

Great Tutor!

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.
