Cris Chacon at Flatirons Tutoring Help my daughter, Emily, with math in high school. Emily felt very overwhelmed and confused. Cris tutored her weekly. He was able not only to build her self-confidence, but to explain word problems in equation so that she could understand them and do the work on her own. Chris is incredibly knowledgeable, kind and professional. He is easy to communicate with and always prompt and efficient. I would highly recommend his services to anyone challenged academically.

Our son was struggling with Math. Mr Chacon was his teacher and already showed a high level of engagement and desire to see our son succeed. We were excited to know he would be willing and able to tutor our son. Our son connected with Mr Chacon on various levels but his desire to see our son do well was the single greatest motivator for our son to continue and enjoy his time. The one on one help really made a difference due to the specific help he needed vs the general teaching that goes on in a classroom which is understandable. There is a door to success that needs to be walked through by parents and also the student which can be daunting but we would highly recommend it. Tutoring and especially with Mr Chacon will help but only if engaged in. I couldn't recommend Mr Chacon more!

I have been out of school for a bit and not taken math for even longer but am learning how to program for a new job. I am jumping into calculus at a college level and was extremely nervous. Working with Cris (remotely) was beyond helpful. He helped me brush up on basics in algebra, trigonometry and pre calc in one session. Feeling much more confident and ready to jump back in. I will be reaching out again next time I need help! Thanks Cris

When researching tutors, Cris’s tutoring business seemed the best fit for me. He was able to meet me at the local coffee shop by my house, accommodated for meeting me based on my busy schedule, and listened to all of my goals for the SAT. Before tutoring, I wasn’t exactly sure of how to study for the SAT and how to apply myself in understanding the content. After my first practice test, we went through each of the questions that I got wrong and thoroughly focused on why I didn’t understand it. The repetition of this helped me so much that my score improved by over 300! Cris has access to so many helpful materials and practice tests, which really came in handy. I definitely would recommend Cris as a tutor to anybody hoping to get their scores up.

COVID and online learning created a bit of a challenge for our son. He had always been a straight A Honors student and wanted to continue with those goals despite the challenges of COVID. Cris came highly recommended after some unsuccessful trials with other tutors. Cris took the time to get to know our son both on a personal and educational level—which created a great fit! His personal connection with our son, helped open the door for more learning and advancement. Our son’s goal was met and we will continue to use Cris and Flatirons tutoring in the future.
