About Chris

I studied chemistry, zoology, nutrition, public health, and management and have advanced degrees. I attended the Air Force Academy, Johns Hopkins, the University of Georgia, and the Georgia Institute of Technology. My two daughters were Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and Star Student of their schools. I worked with them on their math, science, SAT, GRE. They scored over 2200. Together we can achieve excellence: all it requires is that we both work hard and prepare well. I will give you the information you need and the training to improve.

I usually ask for feedback after each lesson and never bill for a lesson in which the student and parent, if applicable, are not completely satisfied. In each lesson, I give clear guidance before assigning work, show how to do problems, give work to do and correct each error, making sure the student understands, and praise what the student does right. Then I assign a little homework. I have worked with many students who have consistently improved their skills, knowledge, and test scores. Read their reviews of our work together.

I have a comfortable, quiet home with a large table, chairs, and wifi for tutoring.

I hope to hear from you and help you achieve success in your studies and tests!

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have worked in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and South and Central America. I have worked with people who speak many languages. I can make English clear to them.

SAT Reading

I took the SAT in 1967 and scored 715 in reading and 715 in math without preparation. Since then, I have taken other standardized tests and scored higher. I worked with each of my daughters on SAT preparation and they scored higher than I had. I have worked with many students and improved their scores by hundreds of points.

TEAS

I took the TEAS in February, 2012. I was scored above the 99th percentile in science, above the 99th percentile in math, above the 99th percentile in vocabulary, and above the 99th percentile in reading. Those are the four parts of the TEAS. My test was scored in the top percentile in each and every part.

Why was my score so good? It was because I had recently taken the required courses again and received A's in them except for microbiology lab, in which I got a B. I have a BS in chemistry with a double major in biology. Then I got a Masters in nutrition. Then I got another Masters in public health. So I have a lot of biology background, a lot of chemistry background, and I was told that I could have a minor in math because I took two years of college calculus and other courses in statistics and probability. Additionally, I score extremely well in vocabulary and reading. Not only was I scored in the 99th percentile in them, but I scored in the 99th percentile on that part of the GRE and similar parts of the MCAT and the GMAT. My vocabulary and reading skills are off the chart.

When preparing for the TEAS, I worked with another student to improve her skills. I helped her understand the questions and how to answer them.

In conclusion, I have taken the TEAS and did very well on it. I have taken far more than the required courses for it and did very well in them. I have taught the TEAS to another student. Additionally, I have successfully helped students improve their scores on similar tests, including the GRE and the GMAT. My ratings as a WyzAnt instructor are also very high.
