Numerous successes in school and many years of work experiences as a supervisor prepared me to do well as a tutor.

At my high school, two out of three years, I ranked in the top three on the national math test.

While in college I did extremely well in subjects in which attention to detail was critical. More than one instructor requested my help in proofreading and editing mathematics or computer science textbooks.

In the workplace, I was promoted to Service Manager and given many workers to train. I discovered that each person had a different way of learning. If I did not get the desired result from one of these workers, I would reconsidered the teaching approach I used with them to see if it could be improved.

When I returned to college to study Computing and Software Systems, I observed that most instructors either did not have the time or the desire to adapt to the students’ needs. Wanting to help, I enrolled in a tutor training course and then worked in computer and math labs, where I could assist my classmates in many subjects. As a tutor, I am often able to provide what the instructor cannot.

I am patient and understanding, but also thorough and detail oriented. Rather than just showing the students a correct way to perform an operation, I prefer to ask the right questions that will help the student think of a way to find it.

I like seeing people reach their potential--and, if I am able in some way to help them in getting there, I find that especially fulfilling.

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++

As part of the requirements of the University of Washington's Computing and Software Systems bachelor's degree, I completed four C++ courses and then used the programing experience to complete many projects for other courses.

Additionally, I took a college course on tutoring techniques and later was paid to tutor and/or monitor various computer labs.

I did very well in all of the C++ classes and was able to help others because of my training.

Computer Science

I have been a student in the computing and software systems bachelor's degree program at the Bothell, WA, campus of the University of Washington. In fact, I have finished all of the required classes except the 400-hour internship, for which I am currently searching.

Studies for this program included computer science, computer hardware, system analysis & design, and a lot of software development--mostly using C++.

I also took a college course on tutoring techniques and later was paid to tutor and/or monitor various computer labs.
