Thank you for visiting my Wyzant profile! Since 1991, I have helped students at the college and high-school levels succeed in:

o High-school Chemistry (Honors and College-Prep)
o AP Chemistry
o General Chemistry I & II
o Organic Chemistry I & II
o Chemistry SAT Subject Test
o AP Examination in Chemistry
o Chemistry Exam for the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS)
o Chemistry subsections of the
-Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)
- Dental Admissions Test (DAT)

I have also provided substantial transitional/enrichment instruction for students transitioning from high-school to college chemistry, from General Chemistry to Organic Chemistry 1, and students who have not taken Chemistry for many years who need a refresher before enrolling their next course (i.e. Organic Chemistry 2). Many students and their parents express interest in this option, so that the student can begin a challenging course with a skill/knowledge advantage over their peers.

A 2017 and 2018 recipient of the Outstanding Teacher of First-Year Students Award, I have taught Chemistry for a Boston-area institution since 2000, authored standardized-test questions for different U.S. states, and served over a decade in private industry. In 2012, I joined Wyzant's platform to reach more students across my native New England and beyond.

In-person sessions are 2 hours in duration. The increased flexibility of online tutoring allows for any session duration, with 1, 1.5, and 2 hours as the most requested. I guide students step-by-step through key calculations, principles central to mastering chemical concepts, and mechanistic/synthetic strategies in Organic Chemistry. Feedback toward these sessions, wherein the student benefits from clear, attentive instruction at her/his laptop has been consistently positive. I invite you to read the reviews of prior students on my Wyzant profile.

I would like to offer a friendly reminder that Wyzant requires all students to complete their online profiles before phone numbers can be exchanged or session-scheduling discussions can begin. Please feel free to drop me an email, and I will return your message as soon as possible. For in-person, in-home sessions of students under age 18, a parent or legal guardian must be at home throughout the session.

I look forward to helping you reach for academic success in your Chemistry course this year.

Chemistry

Through my 27 years as a tutor and 19 years as a classroom educator, I have helped thousands of students across the United States master Chemistry of all levels. Courses have included: o High-School Chemistry (College Prep, Honors, AP) o General Chemistry I & II (College Level) o Organic Chemistry I & II (College Level) o MCAT and DAT (General & Organic-Chemistry sections) I am passionate for both the subject and for rendering challenging concepts and problem-solving tasks more accessible for my students. My former students have enjoyed significant grade/test-score increases after working with me. You are next.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

In addition to teaching Organic Chemistry at the university and community-college levels, I have helped countless students across the United States master the intricacies of this challenging subject. Valued skills that I have helped develop in former students have included: o Acid-Base Equilibrium (pKa, proton acidity, predicting equilibrium direction) o Conformational analysis (Newman projections, chair conformations) o Mechanism construction/Use of Electron-Pushing Formalism (i.e. arrow-pushing) o Retrosynthetic Analysis o Spectroscopic Identification of Organic Compounds (MS, IR, H NMR, 13C NMR) My former Organic Chemistry students have successfully overcome many of the obstacles relating both concepts and representations of molecular structure with the chemical and physical properties whereupon this subject is based. I hope you will be next.

Extremely knowledgeable and relatable!

Christopher was wonderful and made chemistry interesting in just one lesson with my son Josh. As soon as the lesson was over my son Josh said, “I learned more in that one hour than I did since the beginning of September in school!” Thank you Christopher for your help and Josh is looking forward to his next session!

Best tutor!!

Christopher has been a huge help with my son's Chemistry II in college! We will be looking for his help with organic chemistry in the future! So glad we found him!

Highly professional, knowledgeable and super nice

We only had one session, but so far my son seems to like Chris. Knowing that my son was very hesitant having a tutor, he was happy after his 1st season. Chris was also very professional, super nice and very patient. Looking forward to more sessions with him and better results for my son.

Extremely helpful tutor

My daughter is sincerely grateful on how helpful Christopher was during her first Honors Chemistry lesson. She feels confident on the material she learned today. We will be booking her second lesson shortly.

Truly gifted Chemistry tutor

My son had trouble with a college chemistry class. I researched to find someone to help him and was lucky enough to find Christopher. He truly seems to care and makes himself available to the student. I was amazed at his level of commitment. My son just got an A in the class and I’m really thankful to Christopher for his help.

Tutor par excellence!

Amazing and patient tutor. Solid knowledge base with the ability to teach effectively which is an important quality especially if it is an online lesson. Awesome teacher!!

Knows His Stuff!

He is very knowledgeable about concepts of AP Chemistry and has helped me understand some of the main concepts for Acid-Base Equilibrium. He is also very savvy at using Microsoft word and sent notes of our session afterwards. I would recommend his tutoring for anyone who needs it.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient tutor

Christopher is a gifted tutor, who is helping my son understand and feel more confident with his Chemistry. Christopher prepares for sessions, explains himself well and follows up with comprehensive notes. He is very accommodating when it comes to finding session times to fit in with my son's busy schedule. My son feels lucky to have found him!

Great first lesson

This was Christopher’s first lesson with my son. He is very knowledgeable in his area but seems to enjoy teaching chemistry a lot. He is very engaging. My son really enjoyed the lesson with him, got all his questions answered. I think studying with Christopher will strengthen his passion for chemistry.
