Best Tutor in Chemistry

“We were lucky to find Chris when my son needed some help in the middle of the second semester of his AP Chemistry class. Chris is such an amazing and unique tutor who helps you understand and goes above and beyond to check and make sure the level of your understanding is sufficient. That is such an important step to establish comprehensive study skills for most science subjects. Chris is super familiar with the scope of AP and SAT exams, and he is excellent at highlighting areas that need more work. In addition, Chris offers excellent flexibility to accommodate our schedule. With help from Chris, my son finished this school year strong and scored a 5 on the AP exam and 790 in the SAT subject test. Thank you again, Chris!”

Truly Gifted Chemistry Tutor

“My son had trouble with a college chemistry class. I researched to find someone to help him and was lucky enough to find Christopher. He truly seems to care and makes himself available to the student. I was amazed at his level of commitment. My son just got an A in the class and I’m really thankful to Christopher for his help”.

Amazing Tutor…Goes Above and Beyond…

“Chris has been tutoring our daughter for about a year and it has made all the difference in the world. His enthusiasm and passion for chemistry combined with his vast knowledge of the subject and genuine care for his pupils made the entire learning experience wonderful. Our daughter finished the year with an “A” in Honors Chemistry and has decided to take AP Chemistry this upcoming year. He has also helped our college aged daughter in Organic Chemistry. It made a *huge* difference with difficult topics she was struggling with. Thank you, Chris!”
