I am formerly a member of staff at Saddleback College, Mission Viejo, California, where I tutored Mathematics and Chemistry in the Learning Resource Center (LRC). In the Spring of 2012, I was honored by being the only tutor ever to be appointed to the 300 Club, the highest award given for tutoring at the college.
I also tutor school students and my youngest so far has been in 4th Grade. My aim is to ensure that my students develop a good basic understanding of the subject so that their self...

Best Out There
I have only written one other internet review before today, as time is limited and I don't have the inclination, unless the experience is truly a 'stand alone' experience. My son (10 y/o) came to Chris as a 4th grade student. He had begun his studies in a new school in September and then was offered enrollment in a charter school the last week of October. With these changes (teachers, curriculum), and the not so intense love of mathematics, came the "D" grade for the first trimester. That's when Chris entered our lives and within one trimester we are on the "A" team in mathematics!! What's really amazing about Chris, beyond his unquestionable and admirable knowledge of mathematics, is his ability to understand the child he is working with and quietly win them over to share in his excitement of mathematics and to recognize their own abilities to achieve the task at hand. Chris is a seasoned and knowledgeable professor who is astute in recognizing where your child's interests are and how to bridge those interests into the amazing world of mathematics. He is patient, fun, encouraging and strict all at the right times. He is able to quickly evaluate and identify any deficits or problems and give the student and their parents the direction and the road map to successfully correct those deficits. As a parent I admit that I am very discriminating with regard to the academic setting, implementation of curriculum and the instructor/teacher support that my child receives. I can say that Chris has taken my sons dislike for mathematics and turned it into understanding, respect and successful abilities. He enjoys going to his lessons with Chris and is proud when he does well and that he is already starting 5th grade math problems over the summer. If you want your child to not only do well in mathematics but also develop a love for it, then this is the tutor you should pursue. Chris is available and flexible with advice/appointments as well. He has always gotten back to me in a very timely fashion and has worked very hard to accommodate our often changing schedule. Truly, you couldn't ask for anything more. I recommend Chris 1000% to students and parents alike!

Knowledgeable, intuitive, and patient tutor that brings meaning and simplified understanding to the concepts.
Chris is an awesome math tutor who takes the time to teach not only the things asked, but the important keys/tips behind the concepts that will help to ensure understanding and success. He is motivating, kind hearted, and clearly cares about making the experience the best it can possibly by for the student. He is easy to understand and is a person my child looks forward to speaking with for support and guidance. We feel very lucky to have found Chris !

Wonderful Math Tutor!
Chris has been tutoring 2 of my youngest (14 and 16) for the past year in Algebra and Geometry. The kids love him, they look forward to the lessons, and most importantly, Chris has been able to identify gaps in their knowledge from prior grades that he helped fix. Extremely highly recommended!

Amazing session!!
He reviewed several complex exponential concepts with my high school daughter. He was prepared for the session with his own slides and study guide and was extremely helpful. Thanks a million!

Daughter was happy
Daughter felt much more comfortable With her algebra after just one session with Chris. She said he went back over the problems to ensure she completely understood and taught her a new way to remember rules for exponents.

Estimating Square Roots
Chris was wonderful. My granddaughter was having problems understanding the method her teacher was showing the class. Chris worked with both of us 1 on 1 to understand it and now we both have a clearer understanding on how to master this technique. I would recommend him to anyone.

Very helpful on short notice
My daughter wanted to review some items in precalculus. Chris was very patient and helpful and help solidify the concepts for her. She thought he was very nice and helpful.
