About Christopher


Bio

I have been tutoring students in math and computer science for over 10 years. I enjoy working on challenging math problems and teaching fundamental skills in a new way. I believe everyone can improve in math and computing, and I aim to develop a pathway for improvement with my students. I begin by working on a plan and goals with each student.

I have been tutoring students in math and computer science for over 10 years. I enjoy working on challenging math problems and teaching fundamental skills in a new way. I believe everyone can improve in math and computing, and I aim to develop a pathway for improvement with my students. I begin by working on a plan and goals with each student. Then I work on some easier topics to build confidence as we work towards the hard stuff. This also provides an opportunity to understand the student's learning style, strengths, and challenges. Finally, I always keep working toward the student's goal, whether that is to pass a class or become an expert in the subject.

Some of my students have gone on to achieve perfect scores on the SAT Math and SAT subject test in Math Level 2 exams. I have worked with undergrads and grad students on complex Python development projects in web applications, data science, machine learning, and general programming.

I have a Bachelor's degree with distinction in Mathematics from the University of Washington. I have Computer Science and Web Development certificates, and I work as a professional data analyst. I tutor all high school math subjects, as well as Linear Algebra, Calculus I-III, Logic and related college classes. I also cover Python, C#, SQL, data science, and algorithms.

Please get in touch to develop a tutoring plan, set goals, and schedule a session. I provide individualized planning for every student. Hope I hear from you soon!

Excellent and Knowledgeable Tutor

Chris was very helpful. We went over fundamental concepts and practice problems that I had trouble with. He helped me debug code while being extremely patient and explaining concepts and some tips/tricks to me. What really stood out was that I could tell that he genuinely wanted to make as much use of our time and be as efficient as possible. I will definitely be coming back to Chris if I need anymore help with Python in the future.

great teacher

He explains things simply that I can understand and he is so patient with solving problems and debugging and getting results.

Nik, 6 lessons with Christopher

Very informative

There were multiple parts to my project. He took the time to review the code and then explained why and how the functions would work to get our restored outcome. He is Very knowledgeable and reassures you throughout the study period, making she you understand along the way. I will definitely be scheduling more appointments with him.

Super knowledgeable and patient tutor

Christopher helped me understand how to use Python to manipulate data and complete a work-related task. He was also able to bring in his workplace knowledge as a data scientist to help understand the business need as well, which was important in creating an end product. When I became frustrated and ready to give up at times, he still was able to help me out and keep me going. Highly recommended and a huge help in pushing me towards achieving my data science goals. Thank you!

Claire, 11 lessons with Christopher

Great teacher. Very knowledgable and patient

Worked with beautiful soup and regex for a project and he was very knowledgable and helpful with solving the problem and providing multiple solutions and explaining the differences and which would be best in particular situations.

Jack, 1 lesson with Christopher

Knowledgeable and Patient tutor

Chris is teaching me how to construct learning models by creating Decision Trees in machine learning. He has a great way of breaking down the problem, and teaching the basics before attacking the problem.

Rida, 2 lessons with Christopher

Great tutor learned a lot about python

Chris did a great job getting me started with python. He went step by step how the program works. Used real life data as an example. Great tutor, will use him again.
