About Chris

My tutoring methods are simple. For the first session I like to give a small assessment that encompasses Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry to see what the student may or may not know. From there we figure out a starting point, usually where your child is in school. Ideally 2 sessions a week works best, the first session would be content knowledge by hand, along with any help for upcoming quizzes and tests. The second session is calculator work if they are allowed to use them in class.

Fresh out of college with a B.A. in Mathematics. Currently I'm teaching in Camden, NJ at LEAP Academy Charter School. My classes this year are Algebra II, AP Calculus, PreCalculus, and Computer Science with Project Lead the Way. Typically speaking I run my lessons from basic to difficult in level. Starting at the basic level allows me the chance to assess whether or not my students have the basic skills needed to go on. If so great! If not the next lesson is planned around teaching those basics while covering the new topic.

I'm a nerd through and through. I play Magic: the Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, and Warhammer...and sad to say I can figure out the probabilities of Drawing the card I need/Rolling what I need in my head. Also I'm a monumental Zelda fan. I love figuring out puzzles and seeing where the story goes. I am proficient in C++, JavaScript, and Java.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
