Tutoring has always been very fulfilling for me, and I have sought out every opportunity possible to work with students. I recently moved to State College to begin a PhD program at Penn State.

Hello, my name is Chris. In the two years since getting my bachelors degrees (BS Engineering, BA Sociology, Math minor), I have been working as an engineer and private mathematics tutor. Tutoring has always been very fulfilling for me, and I have sought out every opportunity possible to work with students. I recently moved to State College to begin a PhD program at Penn State.

Pursuing my engineering degree and mathematics minor has provided me with the technical skill necessary for effective tutoring. Additionally, my experience working with students from all backgrounds has honed my ability to explain difficult concepts in language which will be understandable to a particular student. Throughout my tutoring career, I have worked with students of all grades, ages, and levels of understanding.

As such, I am uniquely equipped to help your student excel in math, as well as to provide them the tools to succeed throughout their academic careers. Not only will do I provide expert and individualized guidance in the complex field of mathematics but I can give your student tips on other important aspects of academic success, such as study strategies, time management, and organization.

If you or your student would like a bit of help with math I would love to give you some assistance. Please contact me and we can get something on the calendar!

Chris has a great rapport with my daughter

Chris has helped my daughter look at math problems in new ways and the result has been increased self confidence and more consistently excellent grades. I am so glad we found him through Wyzant!

Gary, 30 lessons with Christopher

Confidence Builder

Chris has been helping my son with AP calculus and AP Physics. My son was ready to throw in the towel and totally give up on these classes. He has only had a few sessions with Chris but I have seen my sons confidence in his ability to to understand the work grow from session to session. Chris is very easy to work with as well as very communicative.

Donna, 15 lessons with Christopher

Very helpful with related rates

I think i nailed my test yesterday because you helped so much with related rates. Thank you so much! One of the test questions was exactly like a question on the test.

Vicki, 2 lessons with Christopher

Outstanding!

Chris has been fantastic. Always very reliable and approachable with calculus and physics material. He is exceptionally skilled in these areas and able to explain things clearly. Sometimes the challenge is finding a tutor that works well with high school students. Chris is very capable in this area. Highly recommended.

Tom, 28 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgeable and great with teens!

Chris was my son's tutor this school year in Geometry and Biology. He met with Chris once and sometimes twice a week. We are so thankful for Chris! He helped my son better understand these tricky subjects and keep his grade point up. He is so intelligent and patient. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for a tutor in Math or Science!

Jill, 32 lessons with Christopher

My child is really progressing

Christopher is always on time, polite, and able to connect to my very shy child. Improvements are already evident. My son is really progressing and able to feel comfortable with the very professional Chris.

Rachel, 4 lessons with Christopher

excellent review of problem areas and suggestions

Chris gave my grandson some strategies to improve some areas he is struggling in. Chris was friendly and knowledgeable about the subject. My grandson plans to request him in the future, if needed.

Marguerite, 1 lesson with Christopher

Very patient and knowledgeable about the Algebra subjects that we have been covering throughout each chapter.

He has helped me to get all my assignments done and made sure I understand what it is I am turning in. He helped my confidence level tremendously and I feel I can take on any assignments or exams that come my way without being nervous like I used to be.
