We are very pleased to have met Mr. Steven J. His expertise and tutoring style have been a perfect match for our college-age son. Following is his review:
"(Mr. J) is a really good tutor, gives a clear overview of concepts presented in class but not thoroughly explained by the teacher. I can recommend him to anyone who is trying to learn multiple programming languages."
Steve goes above and beyond to make sure our computer wants are satisfied. That's no easy task in that he is dealing with a virtual "computer illiterate". He was able to get us back to normal, often doing extensive research on his own to correct glitches caused by the "Geek Squad" after they programmed our computer to windows 8.1.
Steve is a great tutor. He has a thorough knowledge of C++ language and explains it very well. I would highly recommend him!
Steve was willing to work with me on the things I wanted. He had a bunch of extra things I did not even think of. He is very well prepared. I would highly recommend Steve. I will be going to him for any future help I need in programming languages.
Steve understood my issue and came up with a creative and efficient algorithm. He did within two hours what I'd been wracking my brain on for at least two days. This allowed me to complete a deliverable that I was beginning to be concerned about.
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.
