I have been a professional tutor on Wyzant since fall 2012, and a teacher at Cyberninjaz since summer 2015. Prior to that, I had years of experience teaching both formally and informally my friends, classmates, and even a high school AP Computer Science class for a few months.

I have been a professional tutor on Wyzant since fall 2012, and a teacher at Cyberninjaz since summer 2015. Prior to that, I had years of experience teaching both formally and informally my friends, classmates, and even a high school AP Computer Science class for a few months. During this time I have tutored countless students and peers of all ages, with many different goals, learning styles, and personalities. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience (and it has definitely kept me busy.)
When I started tutoring professionally in 2012, I was a student at the University of the District of Columbia studying both Mathematics and Computer Science. There I received an Associates Degree in Computer Science, as well as a few publications related to nanotechnology research that I was working on with the engineering department. I also took a few memorable classes in philosophy and music.
I love to learn new things and always ask questions when doing so. I find it personally important to reach a true understanding of whatever I'm trying to learn, and therefore I find it hard to accept new things without that understanding. I believe that when teaching, it is my responsibility to find a way to communicate to the student this deeper understanding and not let them just "accept" a fact or learn too mechanically. Learning, not just doing, in any subject or area of life, is a form of personal growth; it allows us to look at the world in new ways, reevaluate our beliefs, and form connections which ultimately lead to new innovative ideas.

Highly Talented Tutor
Christopher is indeed one of the top tutors on WyzAnt. I am so grateful to work with him and can't say enough about his deep knowledge in Math and Java. Everything I have asked, he handles with ease. Great to work with, very good communicator and will continue to learn from him as much as I can. "thanks!!!”Ryan, 28 lessons with ChristopherTutor responded:

Excellent Tutor, Highly Recommended!
I highly recommend Christopher as he is an excellent teacher with a passion for teaching. He is flexible and tailor’s lessons according to the needs of a student. He ensures that a student achieves profound understanding of the material rather than accepting it as a fact. He is well versed in Java and my son is planning to get help from him in Calculus also. He will always be our go-to teacher if we need help in any subject that he teaches. An outstanding teacher!Sada, 9 lessons with Christopher
