I have been tutoring all my life. My strengths lie in my ability to sit down and find out where the problem is, formulate a plan and work from there. As a computer professional, my methods not only include tutoring by word of mouth, but finding creative solutions such as physical or computer games. I also believe that certain students only need a bit of encouragement and a change of setting. I have tutored elementary school students, high school students, college students and other adults with specific needs.
I have proficiency in the following subject areas: computer programming (C, C++, Java, Perl, Prolog, Lisp, Jess, Basic, Pascal, SQL, HTML), Mathematics (Algebra, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics), Computers (Typing, Microsoft Office), and Psychology (Introduction to Psychology).
My professional experience includes a year as a computer science teacher where I taught grades 1 through 8 word processing, theory of computing, spreadsheet, typing and introduction to programming. I spent three months as an information technology teacher where I taught high school students keyboarding skills and introduction to computing theory and practice.
My Education includes a Bachelor's in Computer Science, an Associate Degree in Computer Science, and a Associate Degree in Psychology.
As part of my requirements for my Computer Science associate degree, I completed a college algebra course. This course covered the basics of Algebra (Prealgebra and Algebra 1). In addition to doing very well, I also assisted my classmates so that they would understand the concepts.
In addition to mastering College Algebra while pursuing my associate degree in Computer Science, I also mastered Precalculus Algebra while pursing my bachelor of science in Computer Science degree. This course focused on the different properties used in Algebra: commutative, associative, linear/nonlinear equations and inequalities, functions (rational, quadratic, polynomials, exponential, logarithmic) and complex numbers. This paved the way for doing well in my Calculus and Analytic Geometry class.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science where I became proficient in C: source code; keywords; input/output (printf(), scanf() gets(), puts()); variables; directives (#define); order of precedence; looping; arrays, strings and pointers. My knowledge in C propelled me to also become proficient in C++ and Java. I also tutored fellow students at college and I love the demonstrative approach (hands on where the student and I sit at a computer and program together, correcting errors and making adjustments).
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science where, after learning the C language, I also became proficient in the object-oriented C++ language (C's higher level language). I handled variables, looping and data structures such as arrays and pointers (variables that contain addresses of other variables). In addition, I learned how functions are different in C++ and how to create classes (hierarchical structures) and objects (instances of a class) - the prime functionality of an object oriented language.
In pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, I was able to harness the power of my professors and I learned several programming languages: C, C++, Java, Perl, Prolog, Lisp, Jess, Flex & Bison (for compilers), Basic, Pascal, SQL and HTML. I was team leader for various projects and I did all of the coding: a Java program for doctors to diagnose patients and input patient information; and a game for preschoolers written in Java. In addition to learning a lot of programming languages, my professors also instilled in me importance of the programming life cycle and debugging stages.
I have an Associate Degree followed by a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science (3.81 overall GPA with a 3.9 GPA in my computer science courses). I am an avid computer programmer with expertise in several programming languages. I am also a good typist and I am skilled in Microsoft Office, Databases and Computer Software repair and implementation. I was an Information Technology teacher for 3 months, a programming tutor for two semesters and a Computer Science teacher for a year.
My Education includes a Bachelor's in Computer Science, an Associate's Degree in Computer Science, and a Associate's Degree in Psychology. Discrete math includes the study of set theory, Boolean algebra, matrices, probability, functions and number theory. These concepts were essential to my understanding of algorithms and computer programming. Being a computer science major who is very good at computer programming, I had to have a good grasp of these theories and methods.
I have a private secretary's certificate and in pursuing this I obtained qualifications in Information Processing. In addition to that, I have an associate's degree as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Computer Science. I was also an Information Technology teacher for a couple of months as well as a Computer Science teacher for a year.
I fell in love with Java while pursuing my Bachelors degree in Computer Science. I had already known Basic, C and C++ which paved the way for learning Java. It's object oriented design and principles allowed me to create my two most major projects - a doctor's program and a game for preschoolers.
As part of my requirements for my major in Computer Science, I opted to study Linear Algebra. Linear algebra involves systems of equations, matrices and vectors, permutations and determinants. These concepts were essential in order for me to understand various data structures in my computer science courses, as well as preparation for my computer programming courses and career. des a year as a computer science teacher where I taught grades 1 through 8.
I have been working with Microsoft Excel for over 10 years. I studied Microsoft Excel in community college as part of my courses for obtaining my secretarial certificate. I worked in excel for years after that and continue working in excel to this day.
I have been working with Microsoft PowerPoint for over ten years to do presentations for work and school. I studied Microsoft PowerPoint when I was getting my secretarial certificate. I am presently working in Microsoft PowerPoint to do presentations where I do very detailed presentations for work.
I have been working with word processors for over 13 years. I remember working with Word Perfect, which predated Microsoft Word. I have mastered many versions of Microsoft Word which I currently use for work.
Using Pascal in Delphi, Pascal was the first programming language I came across - my first programming class was taught using Pascal. From creating the "Hello World" program, to that successful 'Pinball' game, I learned the basic concepts and complexities of programming. Pascal paved the way for me learning even more complex languages and also taught me understand that initiated my growth of learning several other programming languages. My Education includes a Bachelor's in Computer Science, an Associate's Degree in Computer Science, and a Associate's Degree in Psychology.
I learned PERL at the University of the Virgin Islands during my Bioinformatics class. Perl is a dynamic programming language and I learned to manipulate proteins and codon sequences in PERL and transcribe DNA to RNA. In addition to that, I also learned scalar variables, array variables, string operations and file manipulation (reading and writing data to and from files). My Education includes a Bachelor's in Computer Science, an Associate's Degree in Computer Science, and a Associate's Degree in Psychology.
My path to Prealgebra started in high school, but was strengthened when I did College Algebra while obtaining my associate's degree in Computer Science. My Prealgebra skills were further strengthened when I did Precalculus Algebra while obtaining my Bachelor's in Computer Science degree. I did very well and that opened up the way for me to do well in my advanced classes such as Calculus and Linear Algebra.
I first did SQL when pursuing my associate degree in computer science. We learned to use SQL to access and manipulate a database in Microsoft Access. I also have experience doing projects in SQL Server.
I studied Trigonometry while pursuing my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree. I was one of the top five students in my Trigonometry class in college. I will never forget the SOHCAHTOA acronym - it has stayed with me throughout the years.
I learned Visual Basic at the University of the Virgin Islands through a class called Human- Computer Interface Design. Since Visual Basic is an object-oriented programming language, our professor taught us to create classes of objects. This in turn enhanced our ability to create a Graphical User Interface simply and easily for various programming applications. I spent three months as an information technology teacher where I taught high school students keyboarding skills and introduction to computing theory and practice.
