I graduated from UCLA in Engineering and Computer Science, then worked full-time for Citibank as Programmer/Analyst and Designer for over 25 years before becoming an independent contractor.

At my job I taught programming classes and mentored new employees. I traveled to several countries to install software and train users, so I have worked with a variety of cultures and personalities.

I am patient and strive to see the world from the point of view of the student, and I never talk down to anyone.

I am dedicated to my students and I am there for them when they need me.

I am clear in emails and when adding comments to programs. I'm available to answer questions or even tutor over the Internet with Remote Desktop if that works for you.

I like to prepare for lessons by looking over the chapter or materials, sometimes working the problems or writing code myself to be sure I can present it in the most helpful and efficient way.

I can also be light and silly when appropriate, because even learning these subjects can be creative and fun!

I am married and live in West Los Angeles with my wife and our Australian Labradoodle.

I will do my very best to help you be successful with your studies and meet your goals!

I've used ASP.NET on Microsoft's Web Servers quite a bit, especially focusing on (but not limited to) VB.NET.


While working at Citibank, the company sent me to a class on the newly developed C language which we began using for our ATM's, internal tools, and server side components, such as network messaging. Besides designing and programming these components, I also taught an in-house class on C programming for other staff members. We began developing on the Unix based Solaris operating system on Sun servers with the gcc compiler, and later developed C programs for Microsoft servers using Visual Studio. I have tutored C here at WyzAnt, where you can find feedback from a student who learned with the "C by Discovery" textbook.


I designed, programmed, and tested software in C++ and other object oriented languages (like java) for several years using both Microsoft and Unix operating systems, while I was working at a major corporation.

Computer Programming

I have designed, programmed and tested software in several programming languages and on various platforms and devices for over 25 years. I started in high school, continued in college, in a major corporation, and on my own, and have tutored several software and math related subjects.

Computer Science

I studied computer science at UCLA. I have worked for over 35 years in the field.


I worked with DOS for many years and have experience with command line usage, arguments, as well as batch script programming and testing.


I have 25 years of programming experience and have some experience with Dreamweaver. I know HTML quite well.

General Computer

I am familiar with most programs on PCs and Macs and can tutor from the point of view of a user or of a programmer and designer. Programming languages I have a lot of experience with include HTML, Java, JavaScript, Visual Basic,,, C, C++ and DOS batch files. User training can be on just about any program, since my approach is in the spirit of "teach them how to fish" as opposed to "give them a fish." In other words if you learn to figure out how to use a program, you can apply that knowledge to any program.

Microsoft Windows

Although I also use Apple systems and devices, most of my years of professional and personal experience has been with Microsoft software and programs running on Windows. Besides being familiar with the operating system, I've worked with the Microsoft server, languages and used most Microsoft products.

Great Computer Science Tutor! Mark was extremely helpful and provided needed insight regarding areas I found difficult to fully understand. He broke each problem down and explained how and why certain things occurred at each step. Because of Mark I feel certain I will succeed in my upcoming courses. I look forward to working with him again in the future. ...
