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:
Thank you for the kind words. You are very welcome!
Excellent and Very Knowledgeable
Christopher works well with high schoolers. My son seemed to actually enjoy studying for geometry. His grades are improving as a result. Thank you, Chris!Sarah, 2 lessons with Christopher

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
Chris is exceptionally prepared in every aspect of programming. He is a Master of java and really helps you understand topics that you have had troubles on. I have yet to have an assignment or topic that chris does not know or cannot do. Great tutor. Highly reccommendConor, 48 lessons with Christopher
Expert and Patient Math Core Tutor
Christopher is a brilliant and very patient tutor who takes time to explain lessons in the most simplistic and systematic manner. He’s got extensive knowledge of math and offers me varied strategies and alternate ways to solve problems. He is a superb praxis math core tutor who genuinely cares that I understand lessons more deeply. He is just so kind to accommodate me with more time and sessions even with short notices.Mary, 3 lessons with Christopher
Best java tutor I could ask for
Chris has already been invaluable to me as a tutor this year. His understanding of Java is very strong. He was not only able to help me better understand solutions to problems, but also able to show me what good code looks like. I've had poor instructors before and Chris isn't one of them. I'll be sticking with him exclusively moving forward.Traveris, 5 lessons with Christopher
best tutor ever
I am more than proud to write this review for Chris as your next Teacher. I highly recommend Chris as a tutor for computer lessons. When Chris was a private tutor, he was tutor to my both children and their computer skill improved dramatically.Majid, 59 lessons with ChristopherTutor responded:
Thank you very much! It's been a real joy to continue working with you and your children.
Knowledgeable and Patient Teacher
He was very patient, kind and relaxed while explaining the multiple steps in freeing up computer space on desk top and other rudimentary things that I as a novice had no idea to do.Cris, 1 lesson with Christopher
