About Christopher

My love for teaching comes from a long academic career to earn my Ph.D. in physics. I have taken advantage of every opportunity to teach and mentor young students, particularly those in introductory physics courses. I can tutor introductory course at the college or high school level, as well as advanced undergraduate courses.

My goal is to not only help students with specific assignments, but to help a more comprehensive understanding of the material. I achieve this by asking probing questions that may not be related to the current problem, rather a more general and fundamental topic that will enhance the student's understanding of the material. I especially try to use current scientific events to promote a student's general scientific awareness and to relate scientific concepts that are being learned to real events happening in the world.

In addition to my physics background, I am an avid amateur photographer. I enjoy working with those new to photography in not only concepts for taking images (composition, shutter speed, aperture, etc.) but also post-processing techniques in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

I have received my Ph.D. in physics and have extensive experience working with younger students from my undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral positions. I have experience as a teaching assistant in introductory physics courses at both the University of Hartford and Illinois Institute of Technology including both algebra and calculus based courses. I am also experienced in more advanced undergraduate and graduate physics courses.

Avid amatuer photographer that self-taught Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Throughout doctoral and postdoctoral physics research I have utilized many Python capabilities to analyze large data sets, visualize data, etc.

Self-taught photographer with 10+ years experience. I use inexpensive equipment to create professional quality images. I have a love for landscape photography, but also have experience in portraits, macro and still life photography. I use both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to enhance images as well as make minor touch-ups when needed.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with you achieve your goals!
