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

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

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 AP Chemistry Tutor

Christopher explains topics clearly, provides helpful resources, and is knowledgeable about what the AP Chemistry exam entails. I highly recommend Christopher T.

Christopher is very knowledgeable and an amazing teacher!

Christopher is very knowledgeable and patient. He has been very helpful and very accommodating in scheduling classes. We do weekly classes, Christopher. He is an amazing teacher!

Fantastic

To be honest, I was a little reticent about whether he would be worth the money, but he had great reviews and I went for it. Best decision ever! He is Very organized, knows the material completely and is a great teacher. So, irrespective of how my daughter did on her exam, I was happy with the choice. Today she got her chemistry exam grade back. She got a PERFECT SCORE! I was amazed. If she ever needs a Chemistry tutor again, there is no one else I would contact. Thank you!!

Excellent tutor!

My son likes Christopher a lot. He said Christopher is very knowledgeable and very patient to explain his questions. I also saw my son's score has been improved recently. I am very happy with it. I will definitely recommend Christopher to anyone who needs help with high school Chemistry.

Student & Parent review

From the student’s word “it was great”!. “Chris is THE king of Chemistry”. Chris was able to get my daugther realize that some concepts that were in a fog, were actually EASY and clear. Chris is very professional and timely with his communication. The visuals he uses help the student in a short time get up to speed. His lessons reports are very accurate. He is able to probe the student to get to the specific areas where there are gaps.

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.

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.
