I have 7 years of tutoring experience in Math (K-Adult), test prep (ACT and SAT) and foreign languages. I completed my Bachelor's of Arts in Mathematics and a Maters of Engineering in Environmental, Energy and Chemical Engineering and a Certificate for Renewable Energy and the Environment (through DOE) from Washington University in St. Louis in 2018. I currently work as an engineer in Portland where I get to constantly apply my skills. I realized I loved tutoring throughout college and high school because it allows me to work with students and helps me share my love of math, and loved to see student feel more confident and succeed with their studies.

I have an unique ability to integrate real world application and a fun learning environment in which students can hone their skills to improve their methodology to solve problems and build confidence to last throughout their academic career. This has served my students well, allowing the student and I to raise scores by 2-3 letter grades within 4-6 weeks in most cases. I currently look to serve students in the greater Portland area, am easy to contact, and will respond within a few hours to all inquiries.

Finally, someone who speaks my son’s language

My son is really enjoying how clearly Channing explains things. He’s starting to grasp concepts that he just wasn’t understanding in class! Appreciate this tutors timeliness and flexibility!

Great Tutor!

My daughter met Channing for the first time today for Chemistry tutoring. He helped her to understand ionic bonds, covalent bonds, the octet rule, and more. She really appreciated his help and is looking forward to his assistance as she works to better understand Chemistry concepts and applications.

Simone, 5 lessons with Channing

Patient and knowledgeable.

Channing was able to identify my son's challenges and his learning style quickly and began to set him on a course for success. After just 2 weeks, my son went from failing his class to receiving A's on his final!! Very grateful for Channing's hard work and patience!!
