About Christopher

I have a great deal of experience tutoring a wide variety of subjects.

I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering, so my academic strengths tend towards mathematics and science. However, I'm also extremely competent with vocabulary and grammar. While in High School, I studied Latin up to college level, which has allowed me a much greater understanding of English grammar and the roots of our words.

I also have scored very well on standardized tests:
ACT: 32
GRE - Math: 167/170, Verbal: 170/170

I can easily relay the strategies needed to go through standardized testing with greater problem solving efficiency.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Calculus

I took AP Calculus in high school and scored a 5/5 on the BC exam. As a student of mechanical engineering I became even more familiar with Calculus, scoring A's in all calculus subjects, including Calculus 3 and Differential Equations.

Differential Equations

I am very good with Calculus. When I took a Differential Equations course, I achieved an A in the subject.

English

Grammar: I studied Latin in high school and college; this has allowed me to become very adept at understanding English grammar.

Literature: While my favorite genre is Fantasy, I also tend to read and reread many classics that are commonly assigned to English classes. I am very skilled at interpreting them and identifying the key points.

Writing: During my previous job I was required to write multitudes of technical reports. I am very skilled with technical writing, and I can certainly help with analytic writing.

Linear Algebra

I am extremely good with basic algebra. Linear Algebra is more advanced, but can be approached easily if you understand the basics of matrices. I achieved an A in Linear Algebra when I took it in college.

Mechanical Engineering

I am a recent graduate from the University of Connecticut. I obtained a BS in Mechanical Engineering. I acquired A's in many topics, including Thermodynamics, Statics, and other ME related fields.

Physics

As a Mechanical Engineer, I am extremely familiar with all types of Mechanical Physics problems. I am also familiar with the basics of EM Physics.

Precalculus

I frequently use calculus in my profession, and I am thus quite adept with precalculus math.

SAT Math

I achieved a 750 on the SAT math section. I am extremely familiar with strategies of how to approach all of the math problems.

Statistics

I took an AP Statistics course in high school and scored a 5/5 of the exam. In my last job, I used statistics to analyze numerous data sets.

Very Helpful, Patient and Dedicated Tutor! — Christopher recently tutored me for a Linear Algebra class that I was taking online. I had not taken a math class in a few years and was rusty with some of the concepts that were needed to understand the material. He was able to explain how to do these concepts of College Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, and Calculus in a very clear and understandable manner. He was even able to explain some of th ...
