About Kristopher

I am a University of Houston graduate with a BS in Chemistry and a former volunteer at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. I know that textbooks and teachers can often explain new concepts in the simplest forms, but give problems that are more complex than those explanations, sometimes leaving students lost, even those who understand the basics.

I aim to help students improve their understanding of both the basics and the more complex aspects of the concepts they are having difficulty grasping through their own schoolwork and textbooks and, once I am aware of the subjects they are having trouble with, worksheets of my own creation. I prefer to help students along by prompting them to find the answers for themselves, if those answers are available from their own materials, but sometimes a concept needs a better explanation than the books provide and the best help comes from asking those that understand those concepts well enough to explain them to others. Ultimately, I hope to make my students into the type of person that can help someone sharing their struggle to understand.

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.

Elementary Math

With a college degree in Chemistry, I have had to become familiar with math up to Algebra 3. I am well versed in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and word problems. I appreciate that books and teachers will often outline the basic simple concepts of a form of problem solving, but not expand on those concepts even when they assign a problem that has this increased complexity.
