As a math education specialist, I work well with many different types of students from middle school through adult. I also bring an energy and love of my subject that helps students connect with their work. My creativity and an ability to connect math to real world applications, and dedication to my students are some of the things that set me apart as a teacher.
I have my masters plus extensive additional coursework. With over 15 years experience teaching math, and science I am well versed in various topics from pre-algebra through calculus (including algebra 1 and 2, geometry, pre-calculus and probability) as well as SAT and GRE prep.

Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 includes a more thorough exploration of functions with an emphasis on quadratics and polynomials. A primary focus is connecting the graphical, table and equation formats of functions to each other and learning about domain and range. Finally you learn about the wide variety of real world situations that can be modeled to predict future outcomes from current data.
Calculus,

Calculus

Calculus is the study of rates of change, and has numerous and varied applications from business, to physics, to medicine. The complexity of the topics involved however, require that your grasp of mathematical concepts and function properties is strong. I have helped numerous students master both the foundations and the specific skills taught in a variety of calculus courses.
Geometry,

Geometry

Geometry is the study and exploration of logic and visual reasoning. There are numerous tools and facts that you need to understand and then you build on them throughout the year. At the end of this course, a student should be able to make and critique logical arguments and calculate missing parts of a geometric diagram.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Pre-calculus is the study of function families and their behavior. It includes transformations, trig and lots of modeling of real world behavior. When teaching Pre-calculus I focus on helping students to make the connections between the graphical, table and equation forms of the functions we work with.
SAT Math,

SAT Math

The SAT is a test that with some simple techniques and practice of specific aspects of high school math content students can improve their scores and their appeal to prospective colleges. I will help students identify and address their mathematical issues on the SAT.

Discrete Math,

Discrete Math

I took PROMYS (Program in Math for Young Scientists) for teachers at BU several years ago (1992) as part of my master's program, this intense summer course involved studying number theory and discrete math topics full time (40+ hours/week) for a month and a half. I also do extensive work with logic and set theory in my honors geometry classes.

Very patient and prepared!

Thank you so much for coming prepared with notes and explaining everything so clearly! I really appreciate the time and effort you put into our session!

Alivia, 1 lesson with Chris

Excellent Teacher

Chris has been very helpful in prepping my daughter for the math portion of the SAT. His style is patient and clear and he has provided great advice for dealing with the time crunch of more complex formulas.

Susan, 6 lessons with Chris

Excellent Geometry Tutor

Chris did an excellent job for a first time tutor family. My daughter was able to gather some organizational tips regarding her geometry class. We look forward to continuing to get assistance from a Chris as she professes in this freshman geometry class.

Amy, 1 lesson with Chris

Great tutor!

Kate told me that the review with Chris was very helpful in preparation for her final tomorrow. She was happy to be able to cover over some older topics with Chris and she felt that it was very beneficial.

Excellent Teacher

My daughter's math grade improved thanks to Chis and his patience. He's very professional, prompt, and reliable. Thank you Chris!

Grace, 26 lessons with Chris

Great tutor

Did a great job explaining the introduction to the concept I was interested in, patient with me and did a great job relating concept to the application area I am working with.

L, 2 lessons with Chris

My daughter is making good progress with Chris.

Chris is very patient with my daughter, though she is a somewhat unenthusiastic student right now. He always brings enthusiasm to each session and she is getting out of the woods a bit with the rough start to Algebra 2. We are encouraged she's moving in the right direction.
