About Christopher

As a Computer Science Undergraduate at Illinois Tech, I am involved with a multitude of campus activities, the most important being MMA Club and Air Force ROTC. As a ROTC cadet, I have been trained in various teaching and leadership techniques to make other cadets be able to perform at Air Force Standards. Training is one of my favorite activities as it is fun to work with a team of diverse cadets every time, and interesting seeing how the results turn out. Aside from ROTC, I enjoy helping other students out with each of their subjects if I am able, or simply motivating them to do better and giving various ways to solve their problems.

I have been taking Calculus since tenth grade and am currently enrolled in Calculus II. In my calculus class, I have received an 89.94%. I also help out other undergraduate students with learning calculus concepts or teaching them skills or tricks in problem-solving.

I have five years of physics under my belt and was a tutor for physics in my high school, where we were taught with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program curriculum for Higher Level Physics. Additionally, I am boosting a 4.00 GPA in my current college physics class and have an understanding of a variety of physics subjects and concepts, as well as how to teach them.

Taking Higher Level English with the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program has taught me skills in how to write efficiently and effectively. For this reason, I have been working with students for the last five years to help them improve their writing styles and learn various grammar techniques to exceed the expectations for each writing assignment.

Java is my primary programming language, and I have been learning it for a year now in college. I know how programming works both as an individual and as a team, as well as how to create java programs to accomplish a multitude of tasks. I am boosting a 4.00 CGPA in my Computer Science classes because I am very effective in teaching my teams/students in how Java works as a programming language, and how to program efficiently and creatively.

Should you have any comments, questions, or concerns please contact me. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Algebra 1

I am an undergraduate student enrolled in college and have past tutoring experience with varying levels of mathematics, including Algebra 1. I am also trained in teaching/motivational leadership due to my involvement with Air Force ROTC.

Algebra 2

I have taught Algebra 2 courses before in my old high school.

English

I took IB Higher Level English and two 300s-level English classes in college, both which have 4.0 grades.

Geometry

I am able to teach up to college level courses in mathematics and physics and have tutored in Geometry in the past.

Java

I am in IIT and have a 4.0 GPA in both of my Java CS classes.

Mathematica

Because Mathematica is a requirement for learning Calculus 1 & 2 at Illinois Tech, I have learned how to accomplish various tasks and solve or illustrate problems in Mathematica. Mathematica is a lab program at IIT and we are required to accomplish objectives pertaining to each topic of Calculus.

Swimming

As a member of the Hurricanes Swim Team in Saudi Arabia, I have been trained in coaching and participating in competitive swimming. I am able to teach any stroke, or even teach beginners. I still currently hold a 50 m and 100 m breastroke record in the Middle East. My best strokes for teaching are freestyle/front crawl and breastroke.

Theater

I took IB Higher Level Theatre in high school and passed with a 7 (top 0.25% of the world). I have participated in, directed, and wrote various short plays back in high school. I also create briefings for the Air Force and am experienced in teaching/motivating others to increase their public speaking abilities. Additionally, I am able to teach communications skills to help people effectively and succinctly articulate what they want to say.

Trigonometry

I have prior Trigonometry tutoring​ experience and currently enrolled in college with a summer tutoring job.
