## Stellar Physics Tutor

Michelle, 11 lessons with ChristopherI am very pleased we found Chris to help my son with Physics. Chris has the knowledge, intellect and patience to navigate through complex problems. I am impressed with his tenacity to explain concepts succinctly yet thorough while keeping my teenager engaged. Additionally, Chris is easily accessible as he responds quickly to our meeting requests. He is very professional and truly cares about the student’s success. I highly recommend Chris!

As a student, I always excelled at problem sets and exams - a skill that let me sail through an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering while also earning a little spending cash by tutoring classmates.

Years later, graduate school and 5+ years in the classroom would teach me how to approach education holistically. In addition to the basics of technical mathematics, I've found infinite ways to communicate abstract concepts relatably, engage students in experimental design and...

Algebra 1,
#### Algebra 1

My high school teaching experience was mostly with introductory physics and chemistry courses, which heavily involve algebra. In that time, I often planned with the math department, and spent plenty of time covering and observing algebra 1 and 2 classrooms.
Since I stopped classroom teaching 3 years ago, I have been tutoring STEM subjects of all types, including many varieties of math: basic math with 5th graders, all secondary school math, accounting, calculus, GED math, etc. I believe I've seen enough algebra and teaching methods at this point to be able to not only help students through problems, but to also build on the strategies they've been using in class and help find the strategies that work best for them.

I've used and taught the basics of calculus throughout my career in STEM and STEM education. My most recent relevant experience is tutoring college undergrads through a NY-based non-profit that helps students from public high schools succeed in their first years of college.

I am a licensed HS science teacher in Colorado (which covers all sciences), taught the course for 2 years, and have tutored HS and undergrad intro chemistry students for the past couple years.

Physics,
#### Physics

After getting my mechanical engineering degree at Tufts University, I eventually made my way into adolescent science education, where I specialized in physics. I taught physics and engineering courses in NYC for 5+ years, and am licensed to teach in both New York and Colorado. Since I left the classroom around 3 years ago, I've been tutoring physics constantly - including middle school, high school (including AP and IB students), undergraduate, and even adult professionals. Mechanics is my specialty, and at this point I've probably seen every type of lab and word problem possible.
If you're in New York, I'm also very familiar with the Regents exam., having taken it myself and helped many of my students prepare for it.

Poker
#### Poker

Poker has been a passion/profession for me since college. Before I got into teaching, I played professionally with a mix of online and in-person games, When I became a teacher, it remained a hobby that I pursued mostly over the summers, and I always had a strategy game club with high schoolers where we mostly played poker. For the past 3 years, I've been splitting my time between poker and tutoring STEM subjects. I study the game constantly with other professionals and am very up-to-date on current trends with game theory, while also being grounded in traditional poker knowledge like physical tells.

Christopher has provided examples of their subject expertise by answering **92 questions** submitted by students on Wyzant’s Ask an Expert.

## Knowledgeable and easy to understand

We are looking forward to more sessions- he helped with some confusing areas and clarified them. He was able to reinforce this with real problem practice and application exercises.

## Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Very nice and accommodating tutor. Tries very hard to find solutions and explain in an easy to understand manner. Very competent and cares a lot about his students.

## Great learning experience for College Physics

This is my daughter’s second session with Christopher. As a parent, I loved reading the lesson summaries. It helps me understand the learning that took place and validate my decision to seek support for my child for a difficult topic. Reinforcing the learning that takes place in the classroom is so valuable.

Sandrine, 11 lessons with Christopher

## Knowledgeable, Personable, Great Communication

With 2 hours notice Christopher jumped in to help my son with his AP Physics homework assignment. Great communication and quickly got down to the gap on my son's understanding of the question. He provided guidance, structure to work through the equation, and coaching to get through the assignment. We'll definitely work with Christopher again.

## Very helpful

Christopher explained things well and walked me through what I need to do and how to solve problems. He was easy to talk to and was very patient. He didn’t make things complicated for me.

## Amazing Tutor

Chris has been a great help for college physics mechanics. He is able to explain difficult concepts with ease in way which is easy to understand. Not only is he flexible and accommodating, he has always left me confident in my physics understanding. I would highly recommend.

## Physics

Really understands the material and teaches it in a way that makes it easy to comprehend. Chris is great to work with and sets short-term and long-term goals that we have been working toward.
