Hello learners. My name is Brian and I would like to help you achieve your academic goals. I received a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. As a computer engineer, I am required to not just understand, but apply, mathematical solutions to a diverse number of problems. During my academic journey, I learned that the use of diagrams and easy-to-follow pictures can clarify complex mathematical concepts. I rely on this technique to help people master various mathematical concepts. As a teacher, I take pride in providing the best instruction possible so that each student can better understand how to solve and apply mathematics.

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 used this programming language through much of my first professional job as a Programmer Analyst. While there I used this language to help program credit card machines to do the necessary tasks of taking in entries, reading credit cards, and dealing with modem and IP connections.

C#

With this programming language, I've taken a college course in to learn the different aspects of the language and what it can entail as far as what it can do. I also use this language when I program small applications for personal use. I've recently created an emulator launcher program that uses a GUI to interact with the user and the user can select which emulator he/she would like to launch. I even have options to run at system startup or run manual from the users request.

C++

In my current full time profession, I use C++ as the programming language of choice to help program application and simulation programs that are used by the Naval Base. I've also used this within my 2 recent jobs as well where I've helped program GUI pages for a refrigeration company and helped another company create credit card application for their machines that will be sent to clients.

Discrete Math

I've helped previous students in the area of proofs, theoretical computer science topics (i.e. algorithms, and computational geometry) and various theorems (i.e. the principle of the mathematical induction, set theory, and informational theory). I've also helped students with conversions from base 10 to binary (base 2), Hexadecimal (base 4), and Octal (base 8) and vice-versa.

Microsoft Outlook

I currently use this within my present profession as the primary means of communications between coworkers as well as clients. I've also used this with my two past employers as well.

Excellent computer tutor!! — Brian tutors my 9 year old son in computer science (college level). Not only is he very knowledgeable, he was able to quickly build a natural rapport with our son.
