About Christopher

I am a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) professional with over 15 years of experience in cartography, remote sensing, spatial analysis, data analysis, spatial statistics, and network analysis who is interested in providing tutoring to high school and college students.

While this is my first time tutoring, my extensive experience managing and advising interns and GIS students on the proper use of GIS applications such as ArcGIS, ENVI, and Erdas Imagine has prepared me well to assist any student in gaining the needed knowledge to advance their understanding in these subjects.

GIS is more than software though. My approach is to give students hands on experience with the underlying principles of GIS through directed assignments that will expose a deeper understanding of the subject. With a Certificate in Geography Education I understand the needs of students and tailor tutoring sessions to subject matter where the students need the most attention and prepare you for more advanced subjects once you become proficient.

My preference is to tutor in the early mornings and late afternoons to a location preferred by the student. I Possess over two years experience developing python scripts to automate GIS models in ArcGIS. I have also taken introductory courses in writing geoprocessing scripts for ArcGIS.

In addition to my BS in Natural Resources I possess an Associates in Geography from Montgomery College.

Let me help you get that leg up you need in Geography and GIS to gain a deeper understanding of these subjects.

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.

Geography

With over fifteen years in a professional geography field I can provide any student the knowledge and skills needed to become confident in the many areas of geography. My MS in Geographic Information Systems emphasized the use of GIS in subjects such as political, human, environmental and economic geography which provides a deep understanding that I can convey with ease to any student. I also possess an associates certificate in GIS education which helps me relate geographic material in a way that everyone can understand.

Python

I have taken introductory courses in geoproccessing scripts using Python conducted by ESRI. I have over two years writing scripts in Python in a professional environment used primarily with geoprocessing in ArcGIS.
