I have a been tutoring for most of my life, from kindergarten-aged children up to college and university-level classes. I mainly tutored accounting classes for five years at Green River Community College and Washington State University. I tutored students in introductory and intermediate financial and managerial accounting classes one-on-one the entire time and learned how to convey the information so that it could be easily understood. Later, I started teaching classes that would review what students had been taught in class and also helped them to study for quizzes, exams, and finals. My reviews were very positive and I was often thanked by students for making a confusing subject understandable.

During my time tutoring at Green River Community College, I also often tutored students in basic arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, and number theory. I worked hard to make sure that the students were picking up the information and gave them as much time as they needed.

I also have a strong background in speaking, writing, and teaching German. Throughout high school, I took German classes and then afterwards spent a brief time in Germany. When I got back and went to Washington State University, I minored in German. My professor also recruited me to work as her assistant for the introductory class and to teach the junior-level conversational German class. I understand the rules of German and know how to get them across to a student.

Because of the time I spent intensively learning German, I also learned the rules of English and am very capable in teaching and helping to explain the rules.

My tutoring methods consist of finding out what the student already knows, figuring out what they need to know, and trying to find the easiest way to help them get there. I like to start off by explaining the necessary concepts and having the student explain back to me what I just told them and WHY it's done that way. This helps to ensure that they not only can they parrot back what I'm saying, but that they have to think about it too. Next, we do sample problems that they either have in their books or ones that I can make up. I let the student try out the problems as far as they feel comfortable. If they feel unsure, I push them to try to reason out an answer. If the answer is wrong, I ask them if they remember why it was wrong and help them answer it if they cannot remember. I believe strongly that in order to learn the material, students need to make errors and mistakes and to be gently guided to think for themselves how they would solve the problem.

I love helping people learn and am always committing to doing whatever I need to to make sure that the student has all the help they need to succeed.

I'm not seeing responses after accepting requests, so it'd be easier to communicate via text after submitting payment information.

I have tutored students of differing mathematical abilities for years and know how to gradually help students understand the concepts they need to understand. I like to push my tutees to try to figure it out when they feel like they can't do it and then show them that they can do it, even if it seems difficult at first. Building up their confidence in themselves is my main priority.

Great Intermediate Accounting Tutor

Chris has helped me understand Intermediate Accounting. I have full knowledge and an increase of skills and the ability to actually perform my assignments. Please keep up the good work.

Teresa, 11 lessons with Christopher

Extremely helpful

He helped me with my accounting class was very patient and was able to answer questions from my review sheet that I was confused about in a way that I could understand it better. He was lots of help and I would definitely choose him to tutor me again! Thanks!

Christopher, 1 lesson with Christopher

Helpful, good personality, easy to work with, and of course patient!

I can rely on Christopher to pull me out of a black hole of confusion I tend to fall into sometimes. Once I find my way out, I am back to learning - Christopher helps me do that!

Dali, 9 lessons with Christopher

Knowledgeable tutor, great attitude

Christopher helped me untangle my brain with debits/credits for the many kinds of accounts! We touched on what can be found on which financial statement, journal entries, and amortizations in regards to bonds. I am thankful!

Shenna, 1 lesson with Christopher

Very patient.

He explained how the concepts work, how much I fully understand I'm not sure. It's not because of his teaching. I'm just very confused with how managerial accounting works. It's something my brain does not comprehend very well.

Elke, 1 lesson with Christopher

Helpful!

He was knowledgeable in the subject of accounting and helped me work out the problems that I was having! He was patient and helpful. He showed me what I was doing wrong as well as what I was doing correct. I would use his services again!

Kris, 1 lesson with Christopher

Knowledgeable and organized

With Christopher I learn everything from Assets and Liabilities - Intermediate Accounting I. The lessons with him help me make progress in this course. The way he asked questions made me think and learn. I won't forget some concepts anymore. When I didn't understand he came with the explanation at the level I was. I am thankful for the boards saved that I can easily review.

Demisha, 1 lesson with Christopher

Financial Accounting

Christopher is very knowledgeable in financial accounting. During our session, he exercised patient and worked with me to understand the material. I was supposed to create a balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statements (direct and indirect). I feel really good about my level of understanding from this session with him.
