Hello students and/or parents and thanks for checking out my profile!

I am an Electrical Engineering graduate from the University of Washington who moved to Madison in Aug of 2016 to begin a PhD program in the Nuclear Engineering & Engineering Physics department studying plasma physics as it relates to fusion energy. Before enrolling in grad school I worked as an electrical engineer testing high voltage nanosecond pulsers and microwave generation systems. Both my education and work experience have given me practical experience applying math and physics to real world problems. I bring this expertise to my tutoring sessions, helping to make connections between the material being taught and its wide range of applications.

I started tutoring while in community college in Seattle and continued tutoring through Wyzant while at the Univeristy of Washington. Since moving to Madison I have been a tutor for the University of Wisconsin Athletic Department tutoring student athletes. I am now ready to offer tutoring services to a broader range of Madison students through WyzAnt.

My feeling is that most everybody can learn math and science when it is taught in a way that works for them. The traditional methods don't always work and I take pride in my ability to find ways of explaining concepts that resonate with the student. This skill has been developed by tutoring students from very diverse backgrounds and abilities.

The main priority is that the student is learning and for that reason I do not bill for unsuccessful sessions. I take great pride in a job well done and welcome feedback.

I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but of course there can be exceptions when crazy life stuff happens.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I look to forward to helping you succeed in your scholarly endeavors.

Best,
Chris

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

I am currently finishing an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Washington and use Algebra extensively in this subject. Before enrolling at UW I received an A.S. degree from Seattle Central Community College and while there was a lead math tutor.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I am currently finishing an Electrical Engineering degree from the University of Washington and a proficiency in Algebra is fundamental in this field. Before enrolling at UW I was a head math tutor at Seattle Central Community College and tutored Algebra extensively. Each student learns differently and I prided myself in my ability to present the material in a way which resonated with the student.
Calculus,

Calculus

I have taken four different calculus courses as part of my Electrical Engineering studies. They are differential calculus, integral calculus, multivariable calculus and advanced multivariable calculus. Electrical engineering has given me practice applying the math skills obtained from these classes to real world problems. I also have experience tutoring these subjects from my time working as a lead tutor in Seattle Central Community College's tutoring center.
Physics,

Physics

I am currently a PhD student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics department, studying plasma physics as it relates to fusion energy.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have an Electrical Engineering degree and am currently PhD student studying plasma physics. Both of these subjects require extensive math skills which all rely on prealgebra as a foundation.
Precalculus,

Precalculus

Precalculus is a foundation for the higher level math that I do on a daily basis working as a plasma physics graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have taken many higher level math classes which all on some degree to the material taught in precalc.

Electrical Engineering

I will complete a B.S. in EE from the University of Washington in June of 2015. My specialization is in Power Systems, Power Electronics and Sustainable Energy. This education has provided me the tools to teach the fundamentals of EE.
Linear Algebra,

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra was part of the math requirements for an EE degree from University of Washington. We used linear algebra in solving systems of non-linear equations for power flow analysis. I also will be earning a Minor in Applied Mathematics where linear algebra is used extensively.

In this course,we talked about the mechanics in roller coaster and elevator which made me feel confused. The analysis we did yesterday was really good and makes a lot sense to me.

Bryane, 7 lessons with Christopher

Excellent teacher

I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Chris came over to work with my 8th grader on Algebra. He's clearly really knowledgeable, but more importantly (from my perspective) also able to relate abstract concepts to things that are relevant and interesting to the student, and also able to encourage the student to figure it out, rather than lecturing. I have never heard my kid ask so many questions and he is looking forward to working with Chris again.

Julie, 5 lessons with Christopher

Excellent and knowledgeable Tutor

I needed help and guidance for my daughter at the last minute and Christopher came to the rescue. My daughter really enjoyed working with him and thought he was very helpful and intelligent. I'm so thankful that he helped my daughter and answered all her questions and concerns. I wish we could have gave him 10 stars! We have been using Wyzant's platform for around 5 years now and he represents the best Wyzant has to offer!
