About Chris

I am a licensed, veteran teacher with teaching degrees in physics and chemistry and am currently taking time off from a career in education to return to graduate school to earn a MS in Physics. Prior to entering a career in education I gained real world science and engineering experience as a technician and engineer in the fields of nuclear power, oil and gas, construction and engineering industries. This experience allowed me the opportunity to place much of the context of the materials in courses that I taught into practical applications for my students. I have a proven record of teaching the following courses at the high school level: Chemistry I, AP Physics 1 & 2, AP Physics C, and IB Physics (SL). I also have experience tutoring in college level courses for: College and Intermediate Algebra, Trigonometry, Introductory Chemistry, Calculus 1, Dynamics, Mechanics I, and Introductory Physics 1 and 2.

As a personal tutor, I can provide the extension of the knowledge and many different ways of explaining the materials to help the student understand the information more readily. Specifically in first year physics and chemistry, I have developed many proven lessons that incorporate visual aids along with ample practice opportunities. Any student that I tutor for high school level courses will be offered online practice and study tools, as well as printed materials for use in improving understanding and concept clarity.

Normally I offer mostly online tutoring, but I can arrange for public meeting places within 20 miles of my location during certain times. Group discounts for online tutoring sessions may be applied for groups of 3 or more, based on the frequency and duration of the scheduled sessions.

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.

Extremely Knowledgeable

Chris was able to answer every question I had and came very prepared to every session. He went above and beyond by making himself available through an online program when he was out of town. Chris was able to give me the confidence and knowledge I needed to be successful in physics.
