About Christopher


Bio

I'm Christopher! I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northeastern Illinois University in 2010 with a B.A. in Mathematics; I also have earned two masters degrees in mathematics: a M.A. in Mathematics from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2013 and a M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Michigan State University in 2020. I have 14 years experience tutoring students at the high school and collegiate level. I was a student math tutor at Harper College (2007-2010) and Northeastern Illinois...

I'm Christopher! I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northeastern Illinois University in 2010 with a B.A. in Mathematics; I also have earned two masters degrees in mathematics: a M.A. in Mathematics from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2013 and a M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Michigan State University in 2020. I have 14 years experience tutoring students at the high school and collegiate level. I was a student math tutor at Harper College (2007-2010) and Northeastern Illinois University (2008-2010), a professional math tutor at Wright College (2014-2018) and a math tutor in the Math Learning Center at Michigan State University (2018-2020). I also have 4 years experience teaching math courses at Wright College (2014-2018), and 2 years experience working as a graduate teaching assistant (University of California, Santa Cruz from 2012-2013; Michigan State University from 2019-2020).

I really enjoy helping people and I always go the extra mile for my students; several of my former professors did the same for me years ago and I wanted to approach teaching in a similar manner. I always strive to introduce material in an easy to understand manner and present several examples of various difficulties. While covering these examples, I mention common mistakes that are made and how to avoid them, as well as encouraging my students to think about what happens in cases where certain underlying assumptions aren't met or are changed to something else. I then give students time to work on additional practice problems similar to those covered in the examples and give them feedback on their work.

For the foreseeable future, I'm available every day after 1 PM CST and will only be offering online services due to Covid-19. If you would like to schedule a lesson, don't hesitate to send me a message!

I have 9 semesters worth of experience teaching Discrete Mathematics at Wright College; I was also the lead tutor for the course in their tutoring center. I taught the course using Rosen's textbook and focused on topics such as Logic, Set Theory, Proof Methods, Functions, Combinatorics, Relations, Graph Theory, Boolean Algebra, Languages and Grammars, and Finite-State Machines. I also covered extra topics such as Number Theory, Cryptography, and Recursive Relations.

Discrete Mathematic

Christopher is very good at Advanced Discrete Math. He guided me to the way that I can see the solutions by myself for the tricky questions.
