I am a passionate teacher and enjoy seeing my students succeed. I easily identify how my students learn and then adjust my teaching accordingly. Communication with the students and parents is crucial. I listen to my students, and adapt the lesson plan if needed, so they can understand effectively and learn quickly.

Helo with Precalculus Honors

Chris was very helpful in assisting Ryan review for a test he took today. Ryan had missed a couple days of school last week so was behind on the topic. Ryan found it very helpful to discuss out loud the topic and review with Chris. He took his test and got a 19 out 19.5! Will contact Chris again in the future!

Very knowledgable on Pre-Calculus

Chris had a two-hour session with my son to help him get ready for an upcoming test. My son was very stressed and discouraged about taking the test, but Chris helped him quite a bit in understanding the material.

Chris - An Outstanding Geometry Tutor!

My son worked with Chris this past semester for his Honors Geometry class. Chris is an outstanding tutor who helped my son prepare for quizzes and tests in a very comprehensive way. Chris is a very calming force and breaks down the material so that it isn't so overwhelming. This was extremely helpful to my son and he ended up doing very well in the class, constantly improving throughout the semester. Chris was always flexible and friendly, and connected well with my son. I would highly recommend Chris for geometry tutoring services!

Turned my daughter's C in pre-calc into an A

Chris is a wonderful tutor. He helped my daughter move her C in pre-calc into an A. He is very patient, thorough, and supportive of students. He teaches by using examples, which is what my daughter needed. His clear explanation of the subject matter resonated with her. Why can't all math teachers be like Chris?!

Outstanding Tutor

Chris has greatly helped our teen in Geometry. After a couple sessions there was a test. We were so pleased with the high score. Now they work ahead so that our teen is prepared for the upcoming material. It is great to see the change in confidence. We highly recommend Chris.
