Hello, my name is Linden. I am an experienced System Analyst at a national laboratory with a PhD in Computer Systems Engineering and a Masters in Mathematics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Upstate New York. Over the years I have enjoyed mentoring students in various math and science disciplines. Recently, I have translated this experience into providing excellent tutoring services for students in the area.

I am skilled in a variety of programming languages, but I specialize in tutoring Java, C++, C and most of the math related subjects. My goals for each tutoring session are not only to strengthen the student’s grasp of the material but also to expand their problem-solving abilities. To this end, my work experience provides an ideal resource that I can draw on to provide a connection between the work in the textbook and “real-world” problems.

I would be pleased to tutor individual or small groups of students who range from middle school to college undergraduates. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies.

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 1

Quick response, clear explanations! — I sent out a bat signal last night for help and Linden responded very quickly. Though this afternoon was quick notice, he was able to schedule an hour for an online/phone tutoring session. I was feeling overwhelmed with a Java project and was unsure how the various components worked together. Linden used enough jargon to point me in the right direction without talking over my head. Simultaneously, ...
