After working for a number of years as a development chemist and a software engineer in the medical instrumentation field, and serving as a youth soccer coach for a dozen years, I made a transition to the education field. I am certified to teach middle school and high school math, and high school chemistry and physics in Massachusetts, and have taught chemistry, including AP Chemistry, and physics for five years. I have also been successfully tutoring high school and college students in chemistry, physics, computer programming, and topics in mathematics from pre-algebra to statistics and advanced calculus, as well as SSAT, SAT, and ACT test preparation for over ten years. I can help you, too. References are available upon request.

Very knowledgeable in Python!
I was stuck on a particular problem, but Christopher made sure I got all the necessary knowledge to complete the program. He is very patient and is willing to go above and beyond to make sure your work gets complete.James, 1 lesson with Christopher
Christopher was able to help better explain the core concepts for the current topics in my class and from there, the homework no longer confused me. I was able to get my homework done in record time, rather than spending an entire weekend struggling through it. I can actually spend a weekend day or two with my wife and newborn daughter thanks to his help!Derek, 7 lessons with Christopher
Christopher tutored my son in Computer Science. He had knowledge of the material, was patient, and my son thought the session was very helpful.Cathy, 6 lessons with Christopher
Knowledgeable and patience
This was my son first meeting with Christopher and my son was impressed with his knowledge and his patience in going over the each problems with clarity. His input was very helpful and honest. Our son was happy that Christopher was impressed by the way he approach solving a problem. Much respect.Lynnette, 5 lessons with Christopher
Helpful and patient
Christopher helped me with my PreCalculus. He was extremely helpful and showed me tips and tricks that my teacher didn't show my class. He helped me get a grasp on the subject and simplified it to a point where I felt comfortable doing some problems completely on my own.Maxwell, 6 lessons with Christopher
Chris is incredibly knowledgeable and it is amazing how he can teach difficult concepts in an interesting and fun way. Thanks to Chris,he helped my son through a college course that my son had started with a D and finished with an A-. He is the only tutor I know who is willing to prepare himself specifically for what you need; it is like he takes the course with you.Rita, 42 lessons with Christopher
Great Tutor, but Often Discursive
Chris was a great tutor who is very knowledgeable on the areas of programming languages and computers. He helped me with all the questions I needed help with and helped me figure out how to write 2 programs I was struggling on. However, he often gave me too much information which digressed from the main idea at hand which made the task longer than necessary. Overall I think Chris did a thorough job but could have focused mainly about the problems I had so that we could figure out in the most efficient and complete way how to solve the problem.Andrew, 1 lesson with Christopher
Top Notch! Reliable, patient and extremely intelligent.
To my esteemed colleagues and perhaps parents seeking a quality tutor, I have recently had the pleasure of working with Chris (Christopher) J. Chris is an extremely intelligent man who is versatile in skill and accommodating in nature. He quickly adapted to me as a person, and I am a bit effusive at times, and helped me tackle some very complicated graduate level material for a course in advanced programming and information structures with a particular focus on Java. His decades of experience in programming were appreciated, and his skills and mastery of mathematics, both quantitative and qualitative, were revealed through the unspoken reality of his methodology for solutions to advanced algorithms- they were like second nature. Moreover, his ability to simplify complicated routines into tangible, easy to learn systems, was absolutely remarkable. I would not have succeeded in this course without him. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking someone who will listen well and respond accurately to specific needs. He has an ability to filter through confusion and effusive output and return with an output representing the precise material at hand, the material I was trying to handle-- all invaluable for attributes of a mentor, and someone I regard as a friend. He is obviously a well seasoned tutor and I am happy to personally provide him this reference and am openly willing to be contacted on his behalf for anyone considering him. With utmost sincerity, .. onwards in my most challenging experience thus far thanks to Chris,Nelson, 4 lessons with Christopher
A positive and patient tutor
Christopher has helped me so much in my second term of AP Chemistry. Working with him only for an hour every other week brought my average up nearly 10 points from first term! He is unbelievably patient and is happy to explain things in a different way if you do not understand, and he is very positive towards all that he does. He is enthusiastic to work with you, and he will help to make even your least favorite topics more fun and interesting. He mixes his intelligence with being able to understand the difficulties that a student faces. He will work through every homework problem during your session and never fails to answer an emergency phone call for help. Speaking of phone calls, he communicates great through phone and email. If you are looking for a tutor in science and/or math, Chris is the only person I would recommend!Jordan, 6 lessons with Christopher
Christopher is a very good tutor and provided critical support in my daughter's Subject Chemistry preparation. As a result, my daughter was able to get 800 on the test. We are very happy with his work!John, 17 lessons with Christopher
