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. 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...

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!

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

Christopher was very knowledgable in the subject matter (Python, Pandas, imputing data). He did an excellent job walking me through the steps of each problem to ensure I understood the concepts I was learning.

Matthew, 2 lessons with Christopher

Quite knowledgeable and clear communication

This was my first lesson and my first experience with Wyzant tutoring. It was seemless and Christopher was very kind and patient in assisting my initial set-up. Beyond that, we dove straight into material. I look forward to our next lesson.

Jack, 1 lesson with Christopher

I really liked working with Chris.

Chris taught me how to understand the API call and develop a strategy to deal manage the information and use it for my needs. He also helped me to understand a bit more in-depth the structure of Python dictionaries and how to use them.

James, 1 lesson with Christopher

great help

Christopher did a last minute lesson with me. He helped me on my project by explaining what I needed help on to finish. He knows c# and I will be going to him when I need the help again.

Isaac, 1 lesson with Christopher

knowledgeable and patient

Christopher is very knowledgeable in python for text mining. He provided good suggestions after going step by step through the codes and the project. I will definitely meet him for more discussion.

Rita, 4 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgeable Python Tutor

I had an assignment related to Python,forecasting and data modeling that I brought to Christopher's attention. He walked me through how to write the code in python line by line and explained what each code mean and does along the way. He made perfect use of the time and was very patient and knowledgeable. :) I will be using his services again. Thank you!

Nyesher, 2 lessons with Christopher

Great learning experience!

Not only did I get to reinforce my Trigonometry skills, I was able to use the in a set of 3D problems! The breakdown of how to approach the problems I presented were great. I enjoyed discussing how to approach these problems with such a patient and knowledgeable tutor. I appreciate his calm and approachable demeanor. Look forward to working with him again!

Sam, 10 lessons with Christopher

Great Tutor!!!

Hired Chris to help me with a homework assignment. He was available almost instantly and clearly was an expert. He really helped me understand the concepts and why things are working. Would highly recommend him.

Jon, 26 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgeable, knew what I needed to learn

Very good at explaining how things work. He doesn't just tell me what to type, but explains the process behind it and how and why it works. He knows exactly where I am in learning code and knows what I need to learn. He's very good at answering questions thoroughly and helping me understand things by using examples and demonstrating.

Holly, 18 lessons with Christopher

Logic

Phenomenal session. My background is lacking and Christopher was able to succinctly and clearly communicate complex ideas in bite-sized chunks. Have a much better grasp on the concepts now.
