About Christopher

I am a recent graduate of Oregon State University-Cascades with a B.Sc. in Biology. Currently I am working at Bend Memorial Clinic and I have six years of tutoring experience, primarily with high school and college level students for math and science. Subjects I have tutored include Pre-Algebra, Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calc and Calculus, Statistics, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, Microbiology, and Genetics. When starting out with a new student, I will sit down and talk about any specific problem areas in their class(es) to see which aspects of their learning should be emphasized most during tutoring sessions. Then we will look through their assignment schedule and set up a study plan specific to their needs (this usually takes an hour or two and I do not charge for it). Additionally, I dedicate 1-2 hr a week per student for making study materials and upcoming test or quiz prep problem sets. I am passionate about teaching and I value my time spent tutoring as preparation for a teaching job later in life. All of the study materials I create will be culled directly from content discussed in a student's class so your time will be spent focusing on material relevant to your learning.

I was born in Central Texas where I lived for the first 12 years of my life before moving to Bend, where I have spent the last 15 years. In my spare time I like to camp, hike, and do most outdoor activities, typical Bend-ite stuff! I have an immense appreciation for learning, teaching, and academia in general. I take my role as a tutor seriously and strive to ensure not only a satisfactory grade but also a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts contained within each student's learning needs.

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.

Differential Equations

I achieved an A in my differential equations course as well as A's throughout the 2-year calculus and vector calculus series offered at Central Oregon Community College.

Genetics

I am a recent graduate with a Bachelor of Science and major in Biology. During my undergraduate coursework I achieved an A in my 300-level genetics course as well as an A- in my 300-level cellular and molecular biology course. I maintained a GPA of 3.55 and can submit a transcript as well.

Organic Chemistry

I achieved mostly A's (with a B+ as well) throughout my undergraduate organic chemistry series at the University of Oregon.
