About Christopher

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. Please contact. me I am retired and have too much free time on my hands. Help keep me busy.

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.

Chemistry

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.

English

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.
