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.

    Chris has been an absolute godsend for our son Joshua. He has given Joshua the boost in his confidence that he so desperately needed this year. But it was more than just working with our son to make sure he understood the content. Chris is beyond enthusiastic to be helping our son. He is prepared and committed to Joshua's success and insures that Joshua gets regular positive feedback from him. He was exactly what we needed. Chris comes to our house and spends as much time as needed. We are not held to a timed session. When he and Joshua feel they are at a good point, then the session is over. Chris not only helps Joshua out in Calculus but he has become an advisor. He has vast experience and a great friend network that he has shared with Joshua as he begins exploring colleges. These connections will be vital to Joshua's decisions in the future. I can't believe that I was lucky enough to find Chris on tutors.com. I will always be indebted to him for the difference he has made in our son's outlook this year.

    Chris is a great guy, and an even better tutor. I’ve never had a tutor who was even in the same league as Chris when it comes to Teaching ability, communication skills, and mastery of mathematical subject matter. When I first enlisted Chris I had failed Calculus 1 four times and he helped me at the very end and I still failed but I started to understand what was going on. Brady I passed Calc 1 for the first time that summer one he could prepare and I got a B. Next he helped me with Calc 2 and I did so well I didn’t even need to take the final exam to pass the class and got a B! Next I passed Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations with his help during a global Pandemic! Chris is not perfect by any means, but he is the best. This was done at Penn State University by the way and was not easy but Chris made it possible and I will always be incredibly grateful for his hard work and determination. This guy is doing this for more than just the money, and derives real joy from helping other people learn and better themselves.

    Chris is a GREAT tutor. I hired him to help my son pass Business Calculus. Chris helped him understand several Calculus assignments and prepare for the final. I would highly recommend Chris Hayes.

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.
