About Chris

My pleasure in teaching the sciences comes from sharing the excitement I feel about understanding the world around us. As a former instructor of physics at the United States Naval Academy, I have experience teaching students of various ability and interest levels. I also have experience applying science to real life as a submarine officer. This combination of real world and teaching experience allows me to enthusiastically demonstrate the relevance of the subject to all students!

I specialize in tutoring math and physics. My teaching philosophy includes keeping students challenged, but not overwhelmed. I firmly believe students learn and retain knowledge better by studying in short, frequent sessions with no distractions. I highly encourage students to study each subject a little bit each day, even if the class does not meet daily. Regular homework, which includes review problems, is a cornerstone of effective learning.

I strive to help my students to progress with each session, and appreciate any constructive feedback towards this end. In order to be best prepared I do appreciate knowing any specific trouble topics, or a being given a copy of the course syllabus ahead of time.

I am flexible with regards to meeting times and places. I do require a 24 hour notice for cancellation and give my students the same courtesy.

I look forward to hearing from you and exploring the world around us together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Physics

After earning a BS in Physics from the US Naval Academy, I put the sciences to use in the real world as a submarine officer. I was fortunate enough to earn an MS in Applied Physics from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. After receiving my MS I was an instructor in the Physics department at the US Naval Academy for 2 years. One of the great parts about teaching in a smaller school like the US Naval Academy is the experience working with students one-on-one. Although I had 10 lecture / lab hours a week, I easily spent more than half of my working time in one-on-one sessions with my students.
