If you select this option, WyzAnt will ask interested tutors to contact you by email if they are able to help. A maximum of five different tutors will email you and none of your personal information, including your email address, will be released.

I'm an experienced tutor who spent three years helping students master key concepts in their courses with the federal TRiO program, and I've now been tutoring with WyzAnt for another two years. I've always enjoyed helping others learn, and as far back as I can remember, I was always the one my friends came to for help with their homework. Most of my tutoring work to date has been with math and computer-related subjects, but I'm also quite knowledgeable in a variety of other areas including history and grammar. I'm currently working as a web developer at Amazon on weekdays, so I am most available for tutoring on evenings or weekends. I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts, where I graduated with a 3.6 GPA.

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've been programming in C++ for about five years now. I used it for a number of projects I completed while in school, including the course-long final project I did for my concentration in computer graphics. I tutored a number of students in C++ during my time tutoring with TRiO. I'm very familiar with C++ syntax, the Object Oriented design process, and common mistakes students make when writing C++ programs.

General Computer

I've been using computers for pretty much as long as I can remember. Since then, a whole lot of things have changed, and I've been picking up all of the details as technology advances. I know all Windows versions from 3.0 to Vista like the back of my hand, and I'm sure it won't be long before I've mastered all of 7.0's new tricks. I'm also pretty handy with DOS and command line Unix / Linux stuff if anybody's still into that these days. I'm familiar with basic usage of most common software for the Windows OS, and I know my favorites inside and out.

HTML

I taught myself HTML back in high school, and I've been using it ever since on personal, freelance, and professional projects. I'm familiar with both modern standards compliant XHTML/CSS2 layouts as well as the older tabular style. I've also worked on projects with significant amounts of DHTML/DOM scripting. I'm familiar with many common cross-browser rendering issues.

Web Design

I began designing websites in my spare time during high school, and I've been working as a web developer since I graduated college. I also took a few web design classes while in school. I'm familiar with both modern standards compliant XHTML/CSS2 layouts as well as the older tabular style. I've also worked on projects with significant amounts of DHTML/DOM scripting. I'm well-versed in the use of PHP for dynamic web content. I'm also familiar with many common cross-browser rendering issues.
