General Experience:
I enjoy tutoring and helping students feel good about themselves so they perform better at school.
Those who know me say that I relate extremely well to people and that they quickly feel at ease with me. I always strive to make subject matter relevant, interesting, and understandable.
The people skills that I acquired over the years have made me a pro at motivating those I interact with.

Parents who have sought my help usually say that I am an excellent tutor, and that they are glad they found me. I have a deep understanding of math and physics, including their applications, and of what it takes to be successful. Having lived and worked in the U.S., Belgium and France, I have learned to understand and appreciate different cultures. I am also fluent in English, Dutch, and French.

Approach to Tutoring:
Every tutoring opportunity starts with getting students to feel comfortable with me, so they open up and allow me to assess and understand their needs. This assessment is helpful as it allows me to effectively adapt my tutoring style and method. As a tutor, I try to quickly become a trusted advisor of students and parents alike. I accomplish this by being friendly, enthusiastic and honest. Being tutored is a private matter. Maintaining and improving the student's self-esteem are a must. Students are sometimes apprehensive about being tutored for a variety of reasons. I therefore make sure that the students feel comfortable with the tutoring venue. In most cases I establish a three-way communication early on by involving the parent(s), by providing regular and meaningful progress reports, and by asking for feedback.

The best among the best

We have found very good tutors in Wyzant. Christian has the gift to have huge experience, clarity to explain in a very patient style while having a very pleasant demeanor that makes every issue reduce its size. My daugther is not easy to please. At the end of her session she came out jumping in joy on how liberated she felt to understand the topics they covered.

Knowledgeable, Patient and makes math enjoyable

Christian taught my daughter Geometry, which she was unable to understand at school ,she said he totally helped her understand her lesson and she said he was the best Math teacher she ever had ,she will continue with him in tutoring to go thru each new lesson in Geometry this semester, I would highly recommend him and may use him for my son in college 🙂

Amy, 3 lessons with Christian

Knowledgeable and patient

Christian taught my HS student precalculus & trigonometry. Started promptly, patient with my student. Increased her knowledge of subject matter and my student left excited about what they covered. My student had a physics test the following Monday and was able to apply what she learned in precal session to her physics test. Double bonus!

Jennifer, 6 lessons with Christian

Excellent tutor - has helped two of my kids who are completely different learners

Cannot recommend highly enough. Handles all levels of math; handles physics. Easy to work with. And more importantly he handles gifted learners just as well as learners with an IEP.

Regina, 6 lessons with Christian

Knowledgeable and professional tutor

Very approachable and a good listener. His description of Algebra 2 was well approached. Prepared and helpful as well as encouraging to my teen. Definitely will hire again.

so easy to understand

Thank you christian! You are so easy to understand! I am becoming much more confident and better at math! I am so glad!

Kasie, 3 lessons with Christian
Tutor responded:

Josie, You are bright and dedicated. I notice that math is now clicking. Keep it up. You are on the right track! Christian

Christian knows his subject matter and knows how to explain it

After the first session, Christian was able to help my son significantly. He not only improved his understanding, he was exciting motivational and complementary to a damaged school student and has got him motivated and confident after only 1 session. My son can't wait until he has another session. Wouldn't it be awesome if all teachers were this great? I highly recommend Christian and he gets a 5 star review from me, and I rarely give such endorsements.

Richard, 6 lessons with Christian

very helpful

Christian taught my son log's. My son was very pleased. He thought he learned more with him in one hour than he had over the course of the semester. Thanks Christian.

Patricia, 1 lesson with Christian

Christian has been very patient and accomodating with our request

My son likes his method of teaching and intend to take help again. He connected to understand the requirement and was prepared for the class. This way it was optimum use of time. He has very good expertize on the subject and breaks it down to basics to explain.
