I have taught Algebra for over five years and it is probably my favorite math to teach. Its foundation is a few simple rules that with repetition are easily memorized and then can be used throughout the rest of your time studying it.

About Christopher A.

I have tutored all sections of both the ACT and SAT as well as many other subjects for over five years and have logged over 3,000 tutoring hours as well as over 650 five star ratings through other tutoring services.

I tutor because I love the challenge of helping people understand new ideas and enjoy making it fun for them. I also like the flexibility that it gives me to pursue my other interests including filmmaking and surfing.

Some of the other subjects I tutor are: SHSAT/TOEFL/GED, Statistics, research paper writing, Geometry, college essay writing, Algebra I & II, English, probability, study skills and have helped students with a wide range of learning disabilities.

Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

Knowledgable and EXTREMELY patient
Christopher came here to teach me pivot tables which I needed to know for work. I had no knowledge of what they were or did and when he left I had an understanding which I did not think I could achieve in such a short time. The patience he showed was wonderful as I was nervous and he put me at ease which is not an easy task! He also had to figure out what I need to do (in Excel)when I do not completely understand it myself but by the time he left, he understood and I am confident that I can succeed now and it is all because of Christopher!

Helpful Geometry Tutor
Just had our first session with Christopher and my daughter is eagerly looking forward to the next one. He added clarity and helped her connect the dots on some concepts that she was unable to get from her high school teacher.

Relaxed but perceptive and capable

Having read Christopher's bio, I sensed that there was something special about him, and that he was the right one for our son who has some learning challenges, particularly in the area of Math. I believe it is very important a tutor connects not only on an academic level but also where there can be some light hearted conversation. Christopher arrived punctually for our first meeting and his assessment of our son. In advance of that meeting I had explained to Christopher what the challenges are and what our collective objectives are. As soon as I saw him, he appeared to relaxed but confident. After an initial introduction, I stepped away to let Christopher and our son become acquainted and he immediately set about establishing some common ground which happened to be a particular sport. No more than Christopher, our son is also very perceptive and despite the fact that he initially resisted the idea of any tutor, his words after this first meeting were "I can work with him"! Its obviously early days yet, but so far so good!

Chris is a wonderful, kind, and thoughtful tutor. We are very happy with his work in helping to organize our high school junior. Can't ask for more.

Wonderful Tutor! Chris has been so helpful! Without him I would never have been able to pass my Statistics class. Highly recommended!

It's difficult to even express how grateful I am for the time I spent with Christopher- the irony being that, with his help, my words could undoubtedly be more confident and precise. Over 6 weeks, Christopher managed to teach me a subject that was previously- despite alternate intervention and endless review- impenetrable. Patient, kind, and brilliant, I can think of no one more qualified for teaching another human being. Truly blessed to have come across this profile, as are you.

My son was scheduled for the end of the school year Regents Algebra 1 the next day after we hired Chris on this platform. Chris was an excellent tutor and very experienced. He did the handholding patiently and helped my son gain new insights to problem solving. I highly recommend Chris and plan on using his services for my son's next school year more regularly!

Chris tutored my son in a very short amount of time. He gave him an orientation to the test and notes and prescribed pointers for each section. My son had to cram based on a late decision to take the test and Chris’ help made a world of difference. My son actually looked forward to each tutoring session.

With a few painless lessons, Chris was able to raise my son's ACT scores significantly. Most impressively, he taught him a few easy strategies for the reading section, which had been his weakest area, which resulted in a 34 on that section. We were very pleased - it was time and money well spent.
