Bio

I have a Master's degree in chemistry, and for the past several years have been teaching introductory chemistry labs at the University of Texas at Austin. I have taught and/or tutored students on a number of levels, from introductory basics to more advanced scientific concepts. Since many chemistry problems involve mathematical manipulations, I am also very experienced in explaining algebra.

I have a Master's degree in chemistry, and for the past several years have been teaching introductory chemistry labs at the University of Texas at Austin. I have taught and/or tutored students on a number of levels, from introductory basics to more advanced scientific concepts. Since many chemistry problems involve mathematical manipulations, I am also very experienced in explaining algebra. And thanks to extensive time spent in an office setting, I am also proficient in using the Microsoft Office programs (Word, PowerPoint, Excel), especially Excel.

I provide the following reference from Dr. Brian Anderson, Ph.D., professor of chemistry at U.T.-Austin: "Chris Orf is an energetic and enthusiastic instructor who, while having a master's degree in chemistry, still remembers what it was like to be learning chemistry for the first time. He is knowledgeable and creative in his approach to demystifying the concepts that students struggle with most. I worked with Chris for three years at UT, and I recommend him wholeheartedly."

Extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher

Chris is a true chemistry teacher. He is a chemistry whiz and explains things so that they can be understood! I am so appreciative!

Wonderful tutor

My son was panicked because his chemistry grade kept going down. He was coming up on the end of a six week test and he was certain he was going to fail the test. I called Christopher. He had two sessions with my son prior to his test - and my son ended up passing. We continued on with the tutoring. My son's confidence and enjoyment in chemistry has risen dramatically, and so has his grade. He is now getting an A minus. Christopher is fabulous.
