Chris is a very knowledgeable and a patient Math tutor. Our son was struggling in his high school BC Calculus class taught by a difficult and demanding teacher. After trying a few tutors, Chris was the only one who was able to quickly diagnose the issues, close the learning gaps, and help our son greatly improve his understanding of the material, raise his school grade, as well score a 5 on the AP test. Chris has the unique ability to connect with the student and also effectively communicate with the parents. He is always prompt and a pleasure to work with him. My husband and I highly recommend Chris!

Chris appeared very pleasant, helpful and engaged. My daughter was pleased with this initial meeting and she looks forward to learning more. He was also punctual. They discussed the plan for meetings as well as the overall curriculum. Chris also spent quality time trying to understand my daughter and her needs. He appears as a good listener and I am hopeful about his long term ability to have an impact on her performance.

Worked with Chris on Advanced Engineering Math topics: vector calculus, laplace transforms, fourier series. Great tutor, and an impeccably abstract thinker, he has a no nonsense style of solving problems drawing from a broad mathematical background. Chris gets on your level and tutors as if he were taking the class along side you.

As always, Chris was a huge help. He once again found a way to visually break down each mathematical concept regarding the problems that I struggled with. I feel much more confident in my understanding of the topics now.

Chris seemed to put my daughter at ease right away. He is knowledgable about the material but also can convey things in a way that enables the student to feel more confident in his/her abilities.

Chris tutored our son throughout his high school Advanced Algebra II class. He helped our son raise his beginning low grades to A’s and B’s for the remainder of the year. Chris helped our son master the concepts so that he felt confident and free from the stress that often accompanies challenging classes. Chris was terrific! He’s flexible (offered additional sessions at test times), punctual, reliable, professional, pleasant and knowledgeable. Our son enjoyed working with Chris this past year and we all couldn’t recommend Chris more highly.

Chris has tutored my daughter in AP Calculus this year and she says she learns as much in an hour with him as in a full week of class. He's clear, knowledgeable, flexible, and a pleasure to work with.

Christopher helped my daughter with both her math skills and critical reading for the SAT's. Her score went up several hundred points! He is a great tutor and a kind young man. You're lucky if you can get him for your student.

Christopher within one session has built my son's confidence in precalculus. My son has always loved math but was struggling at the start of this year. After he left my son said "not only do I know how to do the problems I now understand why I solved them the way I did".

Chris is a great tutor. He is very patient and comes prepared for his tutoring sessions. He always has his white board and calculator to keep his lessons engaging. My son has made tremendous improvement since he started working with Chris. If you have a child who is struggling with calculus, I would recommend Chris.

Chris is an excellent tutor! He has tutored my son and prepared him thoroughly for his college freshman calculus and statistics classes. Both classes are challenging and Chris had a comprehensive knowledge of these subjects. He effectively explained the materials in a very understandable manner which allowed my son to grasp the key concepts and do very well. Chris also was very responsive and flexible in his schedule. He made himself available to help my son – even with some last minute requests for a tutoring session.

Chris tutored me in Calculus II and I would highly recommend his tutoring for anyone. He was easy to work with and genuinely wanted to help me understand the subject, as well as succeed in the course. His schedule was flexible so it was very easy to schedule meetings. It was also easy to get in touch with him if I had any questions. He always encouraged me to call or text him at any time if I had any concerns. In addition, Chris has a very in-depth knowledge of Calculus so he was able to help me work through any problem by explaining it to me in a way that I could understand.

Chris is an incredible tutor with extensive knowledge in math. I was enrolled in a statistics class at Boston University and was very concerned that I would not be able to find a good enough tutor to help me, but Chris could answer every question I had and more. He was very patient and willing to explain concepts in numerous ways until I fully understood what I had troubles with. I was able to email or text him at anytime of the day and could expect a prompt reply; it was very easy to find a time and place that fit both of our schedules. I highly recommend him to anyone who has trouble with or is just a little unsure of the things that they are studying.

Christopher is a talented equation of interpersonal skills, logic, reasoning, and above all, I recommend his services to any student for his unparalleled patience and understanding. The complicated and intricate math processes that can often leave one feeling lost and frustrated, such as I was, all seemed to fade with Chris's help. Although he makes it look effortless, he truly wants his students to excel and understand the mathematical problems at hand. With a master skill set and detail-oriented teaching style, he will take the time with you to review any topic that needs immediate attention. You, the student, are a product of Chris's work, and he prides himself on his superior abilities to process, analyze, and assess almost any mathematical problem. I am glad I chose Chris as my tutor. The result? I increased my calculus skills, and do not feel as overwhelmed when tackling the subject alone.

Chris Is among one of the best tutors I have ever worked with. He is patient, listens, and explains everything in great detail. Chris has skills that are above anything I have ever seen. He knows his material and is an expert in all aspects of Algebra.

Chris is an excellent tutor. Chris is bright, strategic, analytic, resourceful and respects where you are with your work. A good tutor like Chris positions himself in the eyes of those he helps. He helped me re-analyze my logic progress and helped me build a realistic plan of action under time constraints. Logic is my most challenging topic. Chris' tutoring method helped make my work accessible, approachable, achievable and actionable. Chris is excellent for the price-point.

Christopher has tutored my daughter in Algebra II for a month and a half. He has been an incredible resource and responds to emails right away. He is extremely adept at breaking down complex problems into a systematic process that my daughter can understand. Her confidence in her math skills have steadily increased due to his teaching style. Christopher truly is interested in helping his students succeed and connecting with them; I highly, highly recommend him!

Chris is an extremely intelligent bright talented person. Not too many have I met like him. He brings a vast amount of knowledge and skill to the table and is very patient. Highly recommendable!

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Are you struggling to relate Algebra and Geometry to Algebra II? I'm here to be your Oracle!

I've tutored this subject for many years and I enjoy doing so! I've studied ABSTRACT Algebra in College and Graduate school, where I learned WHY algebra works, not just HOW it works; there is a rich history in the development of this wonderful subject.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Polynomials, Factoring, Roots, Exponentials/Logarithms, Complex Numbers, Parabolas, Circles, Ellipses, Hyperbolas, Angle measures, Trigonometry, Trigonometric Identities, Sequences, Rational Exponents, Radical Functions and Expressions, Functions, Systems of Functions/Inequalities, Quadratic Functions, Matrices.

In College, I studied Calculus both intensively and extensively. Intensively by studying Calculus I, II, III and Differential Equations; but, more importantly, by understanding the theoretical and proof-based foundation of the subject through Advanced Calculus I-II courses. I studied the subject extensively by seeing its application in courses such as Numerical Analysis, Complex Variables, Calculus-based Physics and Calculus-based Statistics.

In Graduate School, I explored the theoretical aspect of Calculus more thoroughly by taking Mathematical Analysis I-II, Measure/Integration Theory, and Complex Analysis. The rigorous treatment and proof-approach of n-dimensional Calculus, through the tools of logic, has taught me why Calculus works, not just how it works.

If you are taking any subjects of Calculus that I've mentioned above, please contact me and I'll be more than happy to provide you with some very helpful insight into this fundamental and timeless subject.

I've taken Differential Equations in college and graduate school: Ordinary Differential Equations as an undergraduate, Partial Differential Equations as a graduate student.

I can help you in the following areas:

1). Classification of Differential Equations; Initial-Value Problems, Boundary-value Problems, and Existence of Solutions.

2). Exact Differential Equations and Integrating Factors; Separable Equations; Linear and Bernoulli Equations; Orthogonal and Oblique Trajectories.

3). The Homogeneous Linear Equation with Constant Coefficients; The Method of Undetermined Coefficients; Variation of Parameters; The Cauchy-Euler Equation.

4). Power Series Solutions About an Ordinary or Singular Point; Bessel's Equation and Bessel Functions.

5). The Laplace Transform.

If any of these topics leave you scratching your head, please reach out; I'd be glad to provide clarity!

I've studied Discrete Mathematics in College when I took Discrete Math I-II in preparation for graduate school. I'm finding a lot of computer science majors are required to take this course. Usually mathematical induction is the topic which leaves the student baffled and eager to seek a supplemental voice; I'm here to be that voice!

Discrete Math I-II topics that I can help you with are the following:

Basic Logic, Set Theory, Relations, Quantifiers, Algorithms, Counting Methods, De Morgan’s Law, Logical Connectives, Truth Tables, and Relationships Between Statements, Recurrence Relations, Graph Theory, Trees, Boolean Algebra, Automata, and Grammars.

I've studied finite mathematics at the undergraduate level as well as the graduate level. In College, I took Discrete Math I-II, Linear Algebra, Finite Geometry, and Number Theory.

Also, as a M.S. student, I took Abstract Algebra I-II which included a rigor treatment of finite groups, rings and fields. I've tutored my peers in these subjects as well.

The title of this subject can be misleading: it sounds easy but it's actually more abstract than it sounds. It can be difficult to conceptualize some topics in this subject, but don't worry I am here to help! Engineering majors who are required to take this class will find it to be one of their more difficult math classes.

In College, I was instructed in this subject using Gilbert Strang's book Linear Algebra, 3rd edition, Wellesley-Cambridge Press. I highly recommend this book.

If you are struggling with any of the following areas, please reach out -I will deliver clarity and comfort:

1). Vectors

2). Solving Linear Equations

3). Vector Spaces and Subspaces

4). Orthogonality

5). Determinants

6). Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors

Do you have a son or daughter who struggles with fractions? Operations with fractions? Or trouble finding the volume of a solid?

No need to fret, I can help break down the problems into smaller parts that are much more understandable and fun to learn. Whether it's finding surface areas, percentages, polynomials, inequalities, or number sequences, I can supplement the problems one's struggling with so there's complete clarity and enjoyment in learning this subject.
