Welcome! Thank you for visiting my Wyzant tutor profile! Since 1991, I have helped students at the university, community college, and high-school levels succeed in their Chemistry course work. In addition to holding undergraduate and graduate degrees in Chemistry, and ten years’ experience in industry, I have taught Chemistry for a Boston-area university since 2000, authored standardized-test questions for different states across the U.S., and launched my own private-tutoring business in 2006. In 2012, I partnered with Wyzant in an effort to reach more students across my native New England and across the United States.

My in-person sessions are 2 hours in duration. The increased flexibility of online tutoring allows for any session duration with 1-2 hours as the most requested session lengths. During my tutoring sessions, I guide students step-by-step through key calculations, principles central to mastering chemical concepts, and, for Organic-Chemistry students, mechanistic/synthetic strategies. Feedback toward these sessions, wherein the student acquires both clarity and attentive instruction right at her or his laptop has been consistently positive. I look forward to the opportunity of helping you, as well.

The scope of my tutoring experience spans hundreds of colleges and universities, school districts, and a variety of standardized tests. For High-School students, I can provide tutoring in AP, Honors, and College-Prep Chemistry, in addition to the SAT II and AP Examinations in Chemistry. For college and university students, I tutor the General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry sections of the Dental Admissions Test (DAT) and Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Further, I can offer transitional instruction to students entering College Chemistry, General Chemistry II, Organic Chemistry I, and Organic Chemistry II. The latter is recommended for students who have taken time off from their educations or would like a "jump start" on future coursework.

Please remember Wyzant requires all clients 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.

Thank you for stopping by my profile, and I look forward to helping you reach for academic success this year.

Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry

I have been a university chemistry instructor and therefore, have tutored students, both as preparation for Organic Chemistry (the interim between General Chemistry 2 and Organic 1), and the two semesters of undergraduate-level Organic Chemistry for over a decade. Standardized tests for which I have assisted in the Chemistry portion have included both the DAT and the MCAT. In addition to content-area knowledge, and strategies for both studying and learning, among the tools I impart to students include the following: 1.) Identifying reaction conditions and predicting what product(s) is/are possible. 2.) Collecting spectroscopic data for NMR and identifying molecules consistent with the data. 3.) Performing retrosynthetic analysis of target molecules and planning strategies toward the synthesis of simple organic compounds. I look forward to helping you and being a part of your success.

Knowledgeable & Thorough.

Mr. Christopher was very patient and keen on making the material clear. Very responsive, approachable and master of the material. It was a pleasure for my daughter to be in Mr. Christopher's class.

Sunitha, 2 lessons with Christopher

Wonderful tutor!

Chris is a knowledgeable, kind, and patient teacher who has helped me understand several topics in my IB Chemistry class. I look forward to our future sessions!

Kristin, 78 lessons with Christopher

Very good teacher of chemistry of concepts!

Today's session was very productive! Got reacquainted with all the carbonyl functional group variants (ketone, aldehyde, etc.), clarified the relationship between volatility and solubility, and helped me to review all practice test questions that I had issues with.

Dong, 7 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgeable tutor

Christopher taught me a lot of chemistry in great detail. He is a great tutor who is very nice and smart. I look forward to having another session with him. I strongly recommend you to have him as your tutor.

Hyun, 1 lesson with Christopher

Readily available and prompt

My son is a sophomore in high school and has developed a comfortable relationship with Christopher, such that he sets up tutoring sessions on his own as needed. He is more confident and appreciates Christopher's solid knowledge base.

Christine, 8 lessons with Christopher

Chemistry tutoring session

Christopher was able to help me with exactly what I needed, was able to explain things to me in a clear way and really help me with my specific needs in chemistry. I am confident that continuing to work with him will greatly improve my grade in the course I am struggling in.

Julia, 5 lessons with Christopher

Great Job Chris!

Chris did an outstanding job reviewing VSEPR theory, hybridization and thermodynamics. He really knows how to explain these concepts to a high schooler

Indira, 7 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgable, flexible, enthusiastic, encouraging

Great positive attitude and engaging. Chris truly cared about making sure my daughter understood and learned the material. Very accommodating with scheduling. Highly recommend him!

Marie, 23 lessons with Christopher

Very productive session

Christopher was able to review many topics and focus in on areas where my son was getting tripped up. He was patient and supportive. He gave clear instruction and support material. My son came away feeling confident in how to approach the material. I would definitely use Christopher again.
