I successfully completed the College Reading and Learning Associations's International Tutor Program of Certification, and would very much like to talk to you about how I can help with your tutoring needs. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Software Engineering Technology (SET), from Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT), "minored" in mathematics, and tutored programming and math while earning my degree. As well, after earning my degree, I continued tutoring and began teaching math and programming students at local schools.

I took my first computer programming class in high school, and discovered I loved programming, and discovered I also loved helping others with programming. I became a programming tutor for various computer classes while earning an Associate of Applied Science in Business and an Associate of Arts at Kenai Peninsula Community College (KPCC). I was also a volunteer tutor and charter member of KPCC’s Student Tutor Education Program, and earned an education credit for my work.

While continuing my education at OIT I came to love math, and took all the extra math classes I could, and the tutoring center coordinator asked me if I would tutor for them. After I began tutoring students asked me if I would tutor them privately. I also had parents contacting me via the grapevine, requesting that I tutor their children. My students regularly told me they thought I was a good tutor, and encouraged me to continue in the education field.

After I earned my Bachelor’s in SET from OIT, I considered the encouragement of my former students, and continued as a math and programming tutor at Lake Washington Technical College (LWTC) and Bellevue Community College (BCC). I also taught math and computer programming for 9 quarters at LWTC.

Later I taught computer programming at Bellevue Christian School (BCS), and also tutored math as a math-lab instructor, and also substituted for other teachers as needed. During my first year at BCS I also tutored math and computer programming at UW-Bothell, where students again encouraged me to continue in the education field.

More recently I tutored math and taught Java and C# computer programming at Bellevue College (BC). And today I work at King’s High school as a substitute teacher, and I hope to pursue my teaching credentials.

I still very much enjoy tutoring computer programming, and math, and I know my experiences as a math / programming teacher / tutor, and my own love of learning and my joy of sharing knowledge will be of benefit to you, enabling me to make a contribution to your confidence, understanding, and learning success, and I am sure you will agree after we discuss your tutoring needs.

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.

Algebra 1

I started tutoring math at Oregon Institute of Technology when the student who ran the tutoring center heard me talking while we were waiting for class to start and after our class was over she came to me and asked me if I wanted to be a math tutor.

I originally hated math in high school (and feel that that makes me a better tutor than I would otherwise), and then after going through some early years of college and not doing so well and then going back to college later in life I started liking math and starting doing well at it.

So I ended up taking the tutoring job while I earned my BS at OIT, and continued tutoring at LWTC in Kirkland, BC, and UW-B.

Today I very much enjoy math and computers, and have enjoyed tutoring, as well as continuing to learn more about these subjects, and about the various aspects of the education process.

Algebra 2

I originally hated math in high school, and ended up having to take remedial math at Oregon Institute of Technology when I first attended. Eventually I went to college at Kenai Peninsula (Communty) College. At that point I started loving math, and then returned to OIT.

At OIT I was asked to become a math tutor by the lady who ran the tutoring center, and I took the job while I earned my BS at OIT, and continued tutoring at LWTC in Kirkland, BC, and UW-B.

Today I very much enjoy math and computers, and have enjoyed tutoring, as well as continuing to learn more about these subjects, and about the various aspects of the education process.

C#

I have been helping others with computer programing since 1979 while in high school, and I recently taught C# at Bellevue College, and can tutor you in the beginning concept of programming, using the C# programming language.

I will not assume any prior knowledge of computer programming. However, I will assume a certain level of familiarity and comfort with working with basic Windows file management.

I can help you learn how to create, initialize, and manipulate variables, and constants. I can help you learn how to create the various forms of IF statements, and pre-test and post-test loops.

I will help you learn about breaking code into smaller sections – methods, and will help you learn how to use arrays, and input and output files.

Computer Programming

I started programming computers in 1979 while in high school and discovered that I loved it. I also discovered in those early years that I liked helping people with their programming.

While working on my Associates of Applied Science in business I became a charter volunteer tutor at my college’s Student Tutor Education Program (STEP), and was a teaching assistant, and data processing assistant for various classes, and I worked as a lab aide / tutor in the computer lab during open lab hours.

As I continued my college education I continued as a lab aide and teaching assistant for various classes, and began tutoring math and computers for the college’s tutoring department.

After college I began tutoring math and computer programming at Lake Washington Technical College and at Bellevue Community College, and then began teaching math then programming at LWTC.

More recently I taught an introduction to computer programming fundamentals class at Bellevue Christian School, and tutored computer programming at the UW- Bothell campus, and then taught Java and C# at Bellevue College.

I have code samples available in C#, Java, and VB.

Computer Science

I started out helping people use computers in high school in my programming class. Later, I worked as a lab aide and tutor helping people learn how to both write computer programs, and also helped people with learning to use various software packages, programs that I had not used until I got the job as a lab aide.

I've also taken apart desktops and replaced and added parts and put the computers back in working order. I've also helped people with peripherals such as printers, etc.

I've also done phone support providing tier 3 technical support to wireless modem users, and helped customers with setting up their wireless modems.

Visual Basic

I started programming computers in 1979 while in high school and discovered that I loved it. I also discovered that I liked helping people with their programming.

I taught Visual Basic at Bellevue Christian School, and can tutor you in the beginning concept of programming, using the VB programming language.

After college I began tutoring math and computer programming at Lake Washington Technical College and at Bellevue Community College, and then began teaching math then programming at LWTC.

More recently I tutored computer programming at the UW- Bothell campus, while teaching at BCS, and this past year I taught Java and C# at Bellevue College.

I have code samples available in VB.
