Knox College (chemistry)
Northern Illinois University (MEd)
I have taught high school science my entire career. Mostly chemistry and physical science to students of all abilities; beginners to gifted and everything in between. I spent 11 years in a public school west of Chicago, 20 years in a public residential school for students gifted in math and science in Aurora, IL, and my last 7 years were in private schools in Latin America.
Although I liked providing students with a hands-on, lab based experience, I feel I was most effective one on one as a tutor. I have been retired for about three years and miss my interaction with students as well as my involvement with the subject matter. I would like to be able to help you. Especially, if you're frustrated and confused but also if you want to become more proficient. Find out how much fun it is to learn and how much better you will feel about yourself.
I have never taught Algebra but use it all the time in teaching chemistry. I have taught science to all abilities of students over a 38 year career.

Christopher does a great job tutoring my teen. He reports on what was reviewed. My teen was able to improve her grade by 2 letter grades in 9 sessions. Thanks
Christopher was very helpful and patient. He spent time working with my son explaining concepts in a way that my son could understand. He also went out of his way to provide my son with extra resources.
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.
I have been a High school chemistry teacher for 38 years. I have taught every level from basic/conceptual to AP; from at risk students to gifted; public, private, and magnate schools. I am currently available almost any day and time. Please contact me for details.
I am a native speaker of English. I read a lot of both fiction and nonfiction. As a chemistry teacher, I assigned written assignments typically in the form of lab reports but also (once a semester) a paper on a chemistry related topic.
