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.

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.

Knowledgeable and easy to communicate with

My daughter worked very well with Christian on her AP calculus AB. She was able to work with him to solve the problems she was having. He is very honest and we will definitely work with him again. If you’re having any problems with Calculus I would highly recommend Christian.

Well paced and knowledgeable

Christian covered a lot of material with my daughter and gave her some helpful pointers on areas she is struggling in. She felt that her understanding of the topics covered improved. Thank you :-).

Emily, 2 lessons with Christian

Knowledgeable and helpful

Christian did a superb job helping my daughter with 9th grade Geometry. She has a better understanding of the areas she had confusion. We will definitely use Christian again in the future. Highly recommend!

Very good session and tutor!

My son needed help with calc BC, and Christian provided some great help and advice. The real outstanding feature was Christian's follow up. He really has given us great guidance and a game plan going forward. Highly recommended!

Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

For a first lesson, Christian held an exceptional tutoring session with my son on the subject of Precalculus. Listening from the other room during their session - I felt that Christian was very patient, thorough with his problem solving explanations and provided multiple opportunities for open dialogue and interaction with his pupil (2 way communication is key). Spoke with my son after the lesson and he had nothing but praise for Christian. We will definitely use him again.

Good Algebra 2 and Physics tutor

Christian is an excellent teacher. He can make things clear to his students in a systematic and thorough way. He is smart and organized and focused. We are thrilled to have him as our tutor.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Wanted to find a tutor for each of my daughters - one is very good at math but has a substitute teacher and is feeling like she is not getting the same type of instruction that she was receiving from her original teacher. Enter Christian - teaching her in a way that she understands and even making sure that the substitute teacher is giving proper instruction as well. My daughter enjoyed her first lesson. My younger daughter doesn’t love math like her sister and it’s been a struggle helping her because you know how it is with parents and kids. Mom and Dad know nothing! LOL! Enter Christian- I hear them laughing while doing math and she is beginning to feel more comfortable with the concepts. And she doesn’t give Christian an “attitude”. Win win for all!

great teacher and knowledgeable

Christian is a great teacher he can alway tell the confused math issue clear and easy to understand. My son likes very much Christian as his tutor and tell me he is very helpful.

Grace, 25 lessons with Christian

Patient and intelligent tutor

Christian taught me all about Optimization and Related Rates, a concept I was struggling with in AP BC Calculus. I was able to improve significantly on my test, and for that I thank him! I learned many things in my one hour with Christian and would gladly recommend him to anybody!
