About Christopher

I have provided 1-on-1 tutoring for courses at a local community college, including algebra, geometry, and trigonometry, as well as computer programming and web development. We can meet online to study, complete homework, and prepare for tests. My patient approach will ensure that you have a thorough understanding, each step along the way, allowing you to really absorb the knowledge.

Self-taught, I have accumulated wisdom from a variety of books and informal sources. In preparing websites of my own using PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, I began to see the benefits of using math to make my algorithms more efficient and concise. That led me to pursue mathematics on my own terms, discovering many of the best ways to solve problems and achieve the desired results. I aim to present difficult topics in the simplest fashion. After tutoring friends of mine, I've come to realize that information is easier to retain and apply if it makes sense.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have completed both high school and college level Algebra I courses with C & A grades, respectively.

General Computer

I will teach the use of personal computers: Windows operating system, web browsers, email, social networking, documents, pictures, music, and video, as well as personalizing settings such as the background image, sounds, and color schemes.


I am qualified to tutor PHP programming because I have been studying and using it for several years. I have used the language to create efficient server-side scripts that interweave with plain HTML to create a dynamic browsing experience by pre-processing each page before it is sent across the network to the client.

I have been able to create very compact, yet powerful code which provides advanced functionality such as user comment forms, with only a few lines of code - unprecedented by previous internet tutorials. I then used these forms on all of my programming tutorial pages to allow users to ask questions about the educational content, which allowed me to refine the text so that it would benefit the community at large.


My experience with UNIX-like systems dates back to the mid-1990's. I began with GNU/Linux and later investigated other alternative such as FreeBSD and Solaris. I stuck with GNU/Linux and "learned the hard way" by configuring systems from the ground up - every detail.

After becoming extremely proficient with the shell interface, which provides console programs specifically targeted for individual tasks. By chaining these commands together complex tasks can be accomplished very easily. This fact is often overlooked by people who weren't trained on older systems.

My list of skills regarding UNIX/Linux is much too in-depth to display here. I have plenty of experience with the X11 GUI interface and sub-system. I have built Linux systems by custom compiling the entire system from source-code - as well as automating the entire process.

I know the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to UNIX systems and I would like to spread that knowledge to others.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor — Chris was really easy to work with and by using screen sharing he was able to show me how to change some code for configuration of my website. I'm sure to use Chris' services again. ...
