About Christopher

My passion for teaching stems from my desire to help others. Having struggled through difficult courses myself has helped me develop methods to help any student succeed. My teaching style focuses on the concepts and builds on that knowledge so that students are not simply memorizing information. I want each student to develop the fundamental understanding needed to be successful.

I possess both a classroom and practical knowledge of science and mathematical content and I will incorporate this into lessons in order to help students understand why a topic is important. Serving in the Navy's nuclear power program and working in the power industry provided my practical knowledge.

As I continually try to improve my teaching methods, I ask each student to provide feedback.
In order to accommodate each student, I am willing to travel to you or meet at a convenient location. I only ask that you provide me with 12 hours notice if a lesson needs to be cancelled or rescheduled.
I look forward to helping you develop a passion for learning!
