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.

Math

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I have successfully prepared many students for the ACT for more than 8 years and consistently received the highest marks as a Wyzant Tutor from students and their parents. On average students increase their ACT Math score from 21 to 27, from 24 to 28 and from 28 to 31 after 5 to 10 sessions. My method: have the student complete 5 to 10 practice tests, during which I tutor them on the problems they struggle with or answer incorrectly. Typically they learn between 20 and 50 new concepts/techniques which allow them to increase their test scores.

Excellent tutor

Christian is very knowledgeable, supportive and definitely willing to go the extra mile. He truly cares about our son actually learning and understanding the material. He is an excellent tutor!

Julie, 8 lessons with Christian

Able to teach in a way that I can fully understand.

Christian went over some Calc 2 problems dealing with integration methods during this last session. I'm getting the hang of it and gaining a true understanding. He has also counseled me on how to get through Calc 2 effectively by using flash cards to solidify the formulas in my mind so I can feel more comfortable during the tests. I'm working through them and will hopefully see a difference on the future tests. Thanks, Christian!

Tutor responded:

Hi Sheri, I just noticed your feedback. Thank you so much for your comments, they are really appreciated. I really enjoy tutoring your daughter. She is an attentive, bright and polite young lady, and she seems to enjoy our sessions. I immediately noticed her upbeat and positive attitude. What a great attribute! I can easily tell she is being brought up by a caring family. Kind regards Christian

Polite and professional.

Christian taught my daughter a new formula that her school teacher had not. I will continue to use his experience and knowledge for our benefit. The whole experience from meeting in a nice environment, to having a quite meeting room with a skilled tutor, excellent.

Tavis, 12 lessons with Christian

Very Helpful for my son!

My son felt comfortable with Christian's tutoring style right away and felt as though he helped him focus on his calculus problems quickly. He gained a lot of confidence in calculus within a short amount of time.

Tammy, 3 lessons with Christian

Excellent! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Christian contacted us within 4 hours of contacting him and had our first lesson within 24 hours. Very kind and patient and knows the material well. My son's confidence increased with this first lesson and gained a better understanding of the concepts. We are looking forward to working with Christian more and appreciate his flexibility and passion for helping my son with his Algebra 2 work. Update : My son has now had 3 lessons with Christian and we have never met a more caring and compassionate person. Christian really cares if you understand the material and teaches in a way that my son fully comprehends!! Christian truly has a passion for helping and even helps my son outside of his lessons!!! Please contact Christian if you are in need of a tutor. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Heather, 4 lessons with Christian

Helpful tutor

Christian was helpful in determining the problems my daughter was having. She felt more confident after the session. We will definitely use his services again.

Susan, 8 lessons with Christian

He's awesome!

I wish I would've been able to start with him sooner! I get A LOT out of the sessions and am planning on scheduling him several times this year, especially to help me study for the AP Calc test!
