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 co

Public Speaking

As a university educator, technical trainer, speech writer, sales representative, and small-business owner, public speaking has been a consistent component of my career history. As someone who himself had to learn to balance the exhilaration of speaking before an audience with the accompanying nervous flutters, I can help you develop the courage to maintain constant eye contact, organize your talking points, and launch every speech with a captivating hook. I can also assist in the development of presentation slides, activities, and other supplements to support your public-speaking endeavors.

Chemistry

Through my 29 years as a tutor and 20+ 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

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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My child enjoyed his energy as well as his thorough, yet easy to understand explanations. I appreciated that he had my child do the work rather than provide him with the answers.

LYNNE, 2 lessons with Christopher

Amazing Experience!

Christopher was available (fortunately) on very short notice and was extremely helpful and relatable to my 16 year old son. It was a very difficult assignment for my son and he needed help beyond what he was getting at school. I have no hesitation in recommending Christopher to anyone looking for some help with high school chemistry.

Jeffrey, 1 lesson with Christopher

Enthusiasm for Chemistry

My son was so excited at the end of his hour with Christopher and immediately asked for more sessions. He explained aspects of chemistry that my son said he did not understand after a week during school.

Fantastic Tutor!!!

Christopher has been a life saver for my daughter! She is a junior taking AP chemistry and was struggling with the course. In her words Christopher has the ability to make her clearly understand the material at a much quicker rate! She indicates that what took her days to comprehend in class is only taking her minutes to get with him. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and thorough. My daughter looks forward to their sessions! After only two sessions she is already seeing an improvement in class.

Amalia, 3 lessons with Christopher

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!

Jennifer, 4 lessons with Christopher

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.

Bouchra, 67 lessons with Christopher

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.
