I grew up in an era when knowledge was not often shared among friends and colleagues. I frequently wished that someone could have provided insight into some of the things I had to learn on my own. Because of that, I vowed to be a person that would share my knowledge and information with anyone in need or anyone that listened. I have done that throughout my career as a software developer, often becoming a mentor to other members of the team. Although I am new to WyzAnt, I have tutored scores of high school and college students in Math and mentored hundreds of colleagues in computer science topics including programming languages and techniques. I am eager to help people reach their academic goals.
I have over 25 years of experience in software developing using programming languages including C, C#, and VB .NET. I also have expertise in Oracle and SQL Server database management systems which I use as a consultant to many businesses. I have earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science/Math and a master’s degree in Computer Information Systems. I use a hands-on approach to tutoring and work close with you until you reach a basic understanding of the learning topic. I follow that up with exercises aimed at achieving mastery of the topic. I realize that not all students have the same learning styles and I use the hands-on session to assess your style and tailor the assignments to match your style.
I do have a full time job, but am very flexible scheduling tutoring sessions. I believe the most efficient learning occurs when the student is in a comfortable and familiar environment which is the reason I am also flexible to the place of study. I believe in starting and finishing on time and creating and achieving goals for every lesson.
I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your academic goals.
