Hello I am Ralph. I hold a B.S. degree from Purdue University in Information Systems with a minor in Art and Design. My professional career is in business information systems and in addition I have taught computer programming to many students. I am also experienced in web design, graphic design, and I am an accomplished photographer. I also speak fluent French.
My teaching style for tutoring is, 1) establish the student's current level of expertise in the subject, 2) bring the student to a level of proficiency in the basics of the subject if necessary, 3) teach the student how to apply what he or she has learned, 4) provide the student with guidance in pursuing advanced topics.
All of this is accomplished through the use of short lecture, ample discussion, real world examples, practical exercises, and relevant reading.
My approach and style is tempered with the knowledge that though many subjects are complex, few (outside of rocket science and theoretical physics) are actually difficult to understand. Most students just need things explained to them in a manner that makes sense to them and that's what I try to do.
