About this tutor

I love math and help others enjoy it too!  I taught all levels of middle and high school math during my time as a teacher.  I taught Physics for two years as well.  I'm preparing for my third actuarial exam this Spring so I am compelled to share how math is applied in real life situations.  My last teaching assignment before retiring was at Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in Coconut Grove (Miami) Florida.  Search it on Google images.  A beautiful place to teach and visit.  It has a rich and interesting history.  In addition to teaching math and science at Carrollton I was the 9th grade vex robotics coach.

Check out botshigh.com and watch the trailer.  It is a documentary about Carrollton's and neighboring Ransom Everglades' robotics programs.

I love helping people.  I especially love SAT and ACT math problems.  They are like brain teasers and I make them fun.  In general, I just love doing and explaining math.

    I reached out to Chris for Calc II help halfway through my semester after failing my first test. After working with Chris for a month prior to the second test, I managed to make an A-! Highly recommend Chris for math help, he is very knowledgeable and able to breakdown complex topics into a more understandable form.

    Chris changed my life when it comes to math. He explains things in ways that I can comprehend them. I now know how to simplify problems with negative exponents, factor properly, and comprehend word problems. Chris has helped me to look at math under a different light. I now approach math with a different mindset.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start with relative examples to guage where the student is at in their math journey.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was a math and physics major, I taught for many years and retired from teaching a few years ago.  My next adventure is actuarial science and I have passed two exams so I am very familiar with applied mathematics.  I passed the praxis II math exam in pennsylvania as well as the florida equivalent.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

If you are within a twenty mile radius I charge $25/hr.  If the student requires a little more time, I don't look at the clock.


How did you get started teaching?

Tutoring my peers in college.


What types of students have you worked with?

Those who struggle and those who are gifted in the subject.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I worked with a student taking an online algebra course for his summer schooling.  He was a delightful student.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Call them on the phone, aprise them of your current topic and tell them about your struggles.  Before I meet with students I ask them to bring me up to speed with where they are with the material and I give them immediate feedback on how they should approach the topic until we meet or they secure another tutor.  I also offer a free consultation especially for students who seem trepidatious about seeking help and are panicked about math in general.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask them why we multiply by the reciprocal when dividing fractions.  This will give you a feel of their content knowledge and the ability to explain arcane and left field concepts.
