Hello.

I'm a PhD candidate in Bioinformatics from Brazil, spending one year as an exchange student at the Center for Applied Genomics (Children's Hospital of Philadelphia). I have a Master's degree in Computer Science and have experience as a Computer Science professor. In Brazil, I used to work (2009-2013) in a private university teaching the following subjects: Graph Algorithms, Design of Algorithms and Data Structures, Artificial Intelligence, C Programming, Software Testing and Object-Oriented Programming using Java. In my other job, I worked as a Bioinformatics analyst, solving problems using mainly Python, R and Shell script. I'm very patient and I believe that any person who wants is able to learn programming.

For fun and to learn more in my area, I solved more than 100 problems in a famous platform of programming challenges in Bioinformatics.

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 have a BSc degree (2003-2007) and a MSc (2007-2009) in computer science. C was the second programming language that I learned in 2003. I used C to solve bioinformatics problems during my master's degree. I used to be professor of computer science in São Paulo, Brazil (Aug 2009 - Dec 2013), teaching subjects that involved programming using C, algorithms, data structures, and graphs.

Computer Programming

I have a BSc degree (2003-2007) and a MSc (2007-2009) in Computer Science.
During my Bachelor degree, I studied Pascal, C, Javascript, PHP and Java.

In my PhD (started in August 2011) and my work as Bioinformatics analyst (from September 2009 to December 2013), I've used Computer Programming to solve biological problems.

I used to be a professor of Computer Science in São Paulo, Brazil (from August 2009 to December 2013), teaching subjects that involved advanced skills in programming, algorithms, data structures, graphs and Artificial Intelligence.

I have solved more than 100 problems in a Programming Challenge with problems in Bioinformatics.

Computer Science

I have a BSc degree (2007) and a MSc (2009) in computer science. I used to be a professor of computer science in São Paulo, Brazil (Aug 2009 - Dec 2013), teaching subjects that involved programming, algorithms, data structures, graphs and artificial intelligence.

Discrete Math

I have a BSc degree (2007) and a MSc (2009) in Computer Science. During my Bachelor's degree, I studied advanced Discrete Mathematics (Theory of Sets, Combinatorics and Graph Theory).
I used to be a professor of Computer Science in São Paulo, Brazil (from August 2009 to December 2013), teaching subjects that involved advanced skills in programming, algorithms, data structures, graphs and Artificial Intelligence.

JavaScript

I have worked with web development since 2006. I have experience with CytoscapeWeb and Google Charts API, both based on Javascript. I built two webtools using Python + Javascript to visualize biological networks.

Python

I learned Python in 2009 and since then I've used it almost every day for my work in Bioinformatics.

Python is good to deal with strings, create web applications, create plots and is very easy to learn. This is why I chose this language to use in my job.

I've used Python to solve the problems of a famous programming challenge website in Bioinformatics.
