About Christopher


Bio

Hi,

I have tutored over 2,100 online math sessions (algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus) for a national tutoring company and have a 4.76 (out of 5) average rating. In 2013, I passed the Texas State Examination (TExES) for Mathematics 8-12, scoring a 293 (out of 300); the passing score is 240, and the average score is 235. I'm self-taught and that has really helped me to understand what students struggle with and to find ways to clearly explain the relevant concepts.

Hi,

I have tutored over 2,100 online math sessions (algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus) for a national tutoring company and have a 4.76 (out of 5) average rating. In 2013, I passed the Texas State Examination (TExES) for Mathematics 8-12, scoring a 293 (out of 300); the passing score is 240, and the average score is 235. I'm self-taught and that has really helped me to understand what students struggle with and to find ways to clearly explain the relevant concepts.

My approach is to focus on each step in a mathematical process in order that students have patterns to identify as well as techniques and strategies to apply. I also ask a lot of questions in order to get students to be able to explain to themselves what it is they are looking for and what it is they should be doing. It is essential for students to develop the ability to explain the math in words, even though math is often not taught this way and even though it often seems that math cannot be approached this way.

Although the initial plan was to be a civil engineer, I ended up earning a PhD in Humanities from the University of Texas at Dallas. After teaching literature and the GRE for several years, I decided to go in a different direction, which included getting a 99th-percentile score (760) on the GMAT and tutoring the GMAT for almost 3 years now for a well-known test-prep company that requires a 99th-percentile score to even apply.

I also retaught myself algebra, geometry, precalculus, and calculus (differential and integral calculus, equivalent to AP Calculus and to the first two semesters of a three-semester university sequence of calculus). I'm currently studying multi-variable calculus and physics.

I look forward to helping you!
