Hey, I'm Zee. I am 21 years old, a Junior seeking a Bachelors in Computer Science at Clayton State University, and the CS department tutor.

I teach with understandable language and personalized examples that my students can relate to, extensive and comprehensive visual aids, and guided and unguided practices. I teach towards auditory, visual, and practical learners all in one simple flowing lesson. I teach younger and older students alike.

At Clayton, I teach students in the introductory programming classes how to program in the Java programming language. I started programming in the Summer of 2011 after I graduated high school. I was self-taught with a game development concentration. I started with C++, then learned C# and JavaScript with the Unity3D game engine. The courses at the college switched from C++ to Java in about Fall 2012. I became the CS Dept tutor in Fall 2013, where I began learning Java as fast as I was teaching it. I also sometimes find myself teaching associated material such as algebra, logic, and basic computer navigation.

The prime distinction that separates my instructional style, even from that of the professors of my college, is that I teach my students how to think like programmers. A common misconception that I encounter is students trying to "write programs" instead of trying to solve problems. An author can't write a book without having a story to tell. Identically, a programmer can't write a program without, first and foremost, solving the problem. I teach students first how to solve problems with a computer scientist's mindset, then how to write that solution into complete and functioning programs. In all subjects that I teach, where others may only leave you with the "how," I include the "why" because when you understand why you do something, you won't forget how to do something.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 2

Algebra is the most immediately and practically applicable math that one can learn, and most struggles in math stem from a negative introduction to the material, causing a general disinterest, a weak mathematical foundation, and the student doesn't see the applicable importance of algebra. I teach a with fun, engaging, practicably applicable approach to build strong mathematical foundations and increase general interest and enjoyment of learning.

C#

I have extensive experience with C# and JavaScript through my game development with the Unity3D game engine. These are languages that I use on a much more consistent, at one point daily, basis.

C++

C++ was the first language I began learning in 2011, both self taught and in my first major related CS courses. I would currently be teaching C++ at my university if the department hadn't switched to Java. I easily ported my C++ when I began learning/teaching Java in Fall 2013.

Computer Programming

I've been programming in numerous programming languages since 2011. Being that it is a new "language", my proficiency with the English language helps me teach in a coherent manner. Breaking down programming problems into simple, yet explicit and precise, English solutions allows easier translation into a programming language.

Elementary Math

Math is one of my strongest subjects. I recently completed college level mathematics courses as advanced as Calculus 3. My primary focus in elementary math is to build a strong mathematical foundation through fun, engaging, and practically applicable examples. I seek to build an enjoyment of math at an early age to ease the difficulties of more complex maths.

JavaScript

I have extensive experience with C# and JavaScript through my game development with the Unity3D game engine. These are languages that I use on a much more consistent, at one point daily, basis.

Microsoft Windows

I've been a PC since Windows 97 at age 4-5. I am very comfortable navigating, troubleshooting, and installing Windows and its softwares. I can easily teach someone many of the important ins and outs of the Windows OS.
