I have an undergraduate degree from Harvard in Computer Science and a Masters of Education in Math Education from UMass Lowell. I have been teaching at North Reading High School for 11 years, and I enjoy working with students. I have years of experience with tutoring one-on-one including honors students looking for that top grade, and students just trying to pass the course.

In addition, I am married with 3 children, aged 8, 7, and 3 years, so I have experience with a wide range of ages. I have been tutoring in Math off and on ever since I began teaching, and have good experience with all levels of high school and middle school math. I also have experience teaching C++, Java, and Python, in classroom settings as well as one-on-one. I look forward to working with you soon!

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.

C

I am qualified to teach C since it is a simplified version of C++. I have an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, which involved classes in C, and I worked in private industry for two years, using both C and C++. In addition, I have been teaching and tutoring computer programming for the past 11 years, which keeps my skills sharp.

C++

I have been teaching C++ at North Reading High School for 7 years. I am quite proficient at C++ considering my undergraduate degree at Harvard was Computer Science, in the C++ language, and then I worked 2 years as a C++ programmer before becoming a teacher.

Chess

At the high school where I work, I have run a chess club for about 6 years. In the last 3 years we have upgraded to a chess team where we play different schools around the area. My rating, based on some online play, might be around 1500 give or take a 100 points.

Computer Programming

Computer Programming is the creating of computer programs! Everything that we do with computers, from Word, to the internet, every page of the internet, games, etc. Everything on a computer or even a handheld device (cell phone, etc.) has a program on it. That program was created by a computer programmer, writing in a programming language like C++, Java, Pascal, Javascript, Perl, etc. I can teach the basics of computer programming.

I have experience in C++ as a programmer for 2 years and in my undergraduate major. I also have experience in Java as I have been teaching it this past year to high school students. I also have experience in Pascal from my high school years.

Computer Science

I have an undergraduate degree from Harvard University in Computer Science.

Computer Science is the art/science of creating computer programs. There are a large number of topics, like networks, graphics, operating systems, data structures, databases, etc.

Since getting my degree from Harvard, I worked as a programmer for 2 years before becoming a math and computer programming teacher, which I have continued until today, for a total of about 9 years.

General Music

I studied piano for several years. Also, I have performed vocally with the Merrimack Valley Players and the Hatherly Players for ten years in concerts and musical theater productions.
