***Teach Adults, Teens (AP Computer Science), and Children!***

I did not realize my passion and gift in teaching until one of my engineer colleagues was having problems in meeting deadlines and was close to being put on a performance improvement plan. So I took the initiative to coach and mentor him. Through a trusting and candid dialogue, I determined that setting priorities was his performance challenge. After several coaching sessions, not only was he able to successfully meet his manager’s performance expectation, but I found out helping people who were struggling to find a way to succeed is something that's truly rewarding and gratifying.

Equipped with years of experience in software development in the medical industry, I am able to quickly pinpoint the root cause of people's frustration and assist them to figure out the solution for themselves.

I always believe in students' intellect no matter how unsure they are of themselves. By teaching students how to fish rather than feeding them fish, and teaching them strategies to face challenges rather than solving the problems for them, I usually am able to help them to realize their own potential.

Programming is not just programming, but it is a way of thinking. It shapes our way of approaching a problem, any problem, analyzing it, and solving it.

Jen’s subjects

C

I have been developing large medical applications in C since 1989. The applications are developed on Sun workstations running Unix and PC running windows. I have MS in computer science.

C#

I have a Masters degree in computer science. I have been a senior software engineer in the medical industry for 2 decades. I am fluent in programming languages such as C#, Java, C, C++, Assembly languages, etc. I use IDEs such Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio to develop software and run unit tests.

C++

I have programmed applications in C++, Java and C for many years in the medical industry. Each has its own unique features and at the same time shares a lot of similarities with the other two. Among the three, C++ is the most notoriously complicated. I can provide valuable guidance and assistance to students who are interested in C++.

Chinese

I was born in Taiwan where Chinese (Mandarin) is the official language. We study and take exams in Chinese, we socialize in Chinese, and we even dream in Chinese. I earned BS in computer science in Taiwan, and then come to the States to continue the graduate study.

Computer Programming

I have a Masters degree in computer science. I have been a senior software engineer in the medical industry for 2 decades. I am fluent in programming languages such as C, C++, C#, Java, Pascal, Assembly languages, etc. I use IDEs such Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio to develop software and run unit tests.

Computer Science

I have been developing large medical applications in C since 1989. The applications are developed on Sun workstations running Unix and PC running windows. I have MS in computer science.

General Computer

I have a Masters degree in computer science, and have been a senior software engineer in the medical industry for 2 decades. I continue to update my knowledge of computer in general.

Java

I have a Masters degree in computer science. I have been a senior software engineer in the medical industry for 2 decades. I am fluent in programming languages such as Java, C, C++, C#, Assembly languages, etc. I use IDEs such Eclipse and Microsoft Visual Studio to develop software and run unit tests.

Python

I have been a senior software engineer for more than 20 years. In addition to Python, I am also experienced in Java, C++, C#, and C. Python is very unique because it is more productive by using fewer lines of code than other major languages to accomplish the same task. It is quite fun to program in Python.
