I studied computer science and math in college and later practiced for the LSAT (got a 169 but ended up not applying for law school). I am actually a fan of standardized tests. Although daunting sometimes, I think you can beat them simply by taking on a positive attitude and by practicing.
I have tutored math for a couple of semesters back in college, and I consider myself qualified to tutor math, computer science, and the logic portion of the LSAT (a favorite).
I also spent several months tutoring math and reading to classes of up to 16 kids grades 4-6 in a school in a Brooklyn. It was a volunteer position and was for kids whose parents wanted them to prepare better for the NY State math and English exams for their grade. Classes were held on Saturdays and Sundays over a period of a few months.
I've found that what works best for tutoring or teaching in general is to find a way to engage the students, and I've found that the best way to engage them is to show honest interest in teaching them myself. No two students are alike, and I've failed with some kids before - in the classes we were teaching in Brooklyn, hard as I tried, some kids would lose focus and made little progress.
Overall, I prefer a non-stressful approach to establish a baseline from which to go on with each individual student. Preparation is also key and having the right material to work on is very important. Depending on the subject (and especially for computer subjects) before the first session, I will ask that we speak on the phone and will request the student send me via email information regarding materials we'll be going over (syllabus, homework assignments, past exams).

I have a B.S. in computer science degree from New York University and a B.E. in computer engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology. C was the language of choice at the time I was pursuing my degrees which was in 1996-2000. I have since been working professionally as a software developer. The first few years I worked in C and C++. The last few years have been primarily Java.
I have several years professional experience using C++ to write and support gateway engines from Broker Dealers to the Chicago futures exchanges (CBOT/CME). Gateway engines is a term used to describe an application connecting a Broker Dealer's internal systems to the exchange, using the exchange's API.
I have a dual computer science and computer engineering degree from NYU and Stevens Institute of Technology. Work back in college was almost entirely done in a Unix environment. In addition I have over 10 years of professional software development experience, of which over 7 have been in server side development in a Unix environment. My work as a developer requires extensive understanding of the OS as well as knowledge of administrative functions (note: I am not a Unix admin but feel that my Unix skills are on par or better than most Unix admins I have talked to, even though Unix admins may at times be more familiar with some of the more obscure features in Unix).
Highly Recommended — Vladimir is very patient, professional, and dedicated. He helped me catch up in my C Programming class and also made the programming assignments seem less daunting. Despite having a busy schedule, he answered my questions quickly and often sent me helpful advice for my assignments and for improving my programming skills via text and e-mail. ...
