Bio

I have been tutoring for the last 20 years throughout middle/high school, college, and as a Physician.I worked as a director of a program coordinating mentor and mentee pairing for Harvard Students and high school students in Boston. I ran this group for two years and we had over 25 different pairings in the program. I also mentored my mentee about school, life, and college applications.

I have been tutoring for the last 20 years throughout middle/high school, college, and as a Physician.I worked as a director of a program coordinating mentor and mentee pairing for Harvard Students and high school students in Boston. I ran this group for two years and we had over 25 different pairings in the program. I also mentored my mentee about school, life, and college applications. In addition, I was an English as a Second Language Consultant on campus, and I worked with graduate students on improving their English skills and literacy. I have also worked as a tutor preparing Chinese Citizens for the U.S Citizenship exam as well as making them more comfortable with the English Language. Finally, I worked in Kenya for three weeks as a teaching assistant in math and English. I worked to analyze the strengths that students had in their writing and discussed with the Kenyan teachers how to address those issues.
My tutoring methodology involves identifying the student's strengths and weaknesses as well as their interests. I try to draw cross-curricular references to make the learning very interactive and fun. I feel that students who engage the material by direct application to their lives will better learn and understand the material. Some of my tutoring methods can include word games, addressing specific study skills, and encouraging the student to seek out more information than necessary to gain a better context of the material. Learning in context is always more beneficial to the student.
Recently, I started Medical School at Wayne State University. As such, I am also very knowledgeable about human anatomy, physiology, and other health related subjects and tests. Due to my schedule I currently have, I will only be able to see students on weekends.

Cancelation Policy: Cancelation of a lesson must be at least 24 hours in advance of lesson in order to allow planning of schedule. If cancelation is made less than 24 hours before, then a late fee equal to one hour of tutoring will be assessed.

Czech

I have a language citation in Czech from Harvard College. I not only took 3 years of Czech, but I did primary research in the Czech Republic and wrote portions of my undergraduate thesis in Czech. I did speaking practice with the summer study abroad students from Harvard College in Prague this past summer.

I worked as an English as a Second Language Consultant for three years while I was an undergraduate. I helped speakers of many different languages (Russian, Farsi, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) achieve excellent proficiency in English through their work with me. We discussed idioms, grammatical structures, sound structure, reading comprehension strategies and learning methods.
Polish,

Polish

I studied Polish while abroad last summer and I had many opportunities to explain myself in interactions through Polish. I am proficient in Intermediate Polish from my interactions abroad as I already knew the basics from conversations with my grandmother in my youth and my knowledge of three other slavic languages: Czech, Russian, and Slovak. I know the method to teach a slavic language effectively as I worked as an assistant to my Czech professor over the last two years.

I worked as a Summer Urban Program Tutor in Boston this past summer after graduating from Harvard. I had to create curriculum in Math, Science, Literacy, and Science to review the concepts that the Kindergarten through sixth grade students had learned in school the previous year. I worked in my position for 8 weeks. I taught the curriculum to each of the grades and tutored struggling students privately after the program.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math is the foundation for all other math. Although it can be daunting to start from square one in elementary school, the benefits of creating a solid basis of math skills whilst in elementary school is paramount. Multiplication, Division, Subtraction, and Addition are just some of the exciting topics I am able to explain well and make relevant to the elementary math student today.

Knowledgeable, reliable and patient tutor!

Our church engaged Christopher to help a recent immigrant, who was illiterate in her native language and English, begin to read and write in English, as well as to better speak English. Christopher was a faithful tutor for 8 months, never missing appointments and helping our member really begin to develop her English skills. We are very grateful for his work with her. It was important to her adjustments to this country!

Actually Engaged with My Kid

My son having a rough time in biology. Other tutors just lectured to him and droned on not even asking what he was having difficulty with or trying to give him techniques to help. From the first visit my kid was like “this is the guy”.

Zak, 3 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Today was our first lesson with Chris and my daughter was able to follow everything he taught her. He was very patient and gave my daughter some great tips to help her raise her SAT score.

Great tutor!

Chris has been tutoring my son in Geometry and Biology. He is always patient and has a great way of explaining things. In addition to going over the material, he also has great recommendations on study skills and tips. It is obvious that Chris enjoys teaching and wants to ensure his students do well. As a parent, I always appreciate the summary emails Chris sends after each session.
