I had my first tutoring session yesterday. I was able to tutor a couple students, one in Java programming and the other in Algebra 1. I enjoyed it very much. I find pleasure in explaining things to others, and I was able to work with a couple of very attentive and bright students. It is exciting to have actually started tutoring. I have been with WyzAnt for several months now and was finally chosen as someone's tutor. Thanks to a friendly family for helping me get started on my tutoring career!
I never actually posted a blog but I figured I'd give it a shot. You see, tutoring was always a fun activity for me, and I've been doing it since 10th grade. I used to go to elementary schools to teach young children how to read, and stay after school at my high school to help others with homework. In college, I found students to tutor as well. After a two year break, here I am on WyzAnt. I recently completed my first lesson with a student in Java Programming, and I must confess I was quite nervous. It had been 3 years since my last real programming phase in Java, and part of me feared that I'd sit there and stutter myself into a stupor of C++ and other programming language and throw off my student completely. As it turns out, the opposite was the case. While I did every once in a while slip into some accidental C++, I was able to understand everything she needed and help her through her work. Yesterday, I had a similar experience. A student contacted me to help her... read more
For the past few years, I've spent most of my time teaching and tutoring on physics, but I also tutor students in programming languages such as C, C++ and Java. These languages are three of the most difficult to learn due in large part to their comprehensiveness. These and languages very similar to them are the programming languages used to implement most of the highest performing and functionally complicated applications in the world, including operating systems, office suites, high performing websites and smartphone apps. Prior to becoming a teacher, I put myself through graduate school teaching classes and tutoring mostly college students on programming. I then worked for about 20 years for software companies developing software, leading development and consulting into business on the development of custom, high performance software. I welcome inquiries on tutoring of computer science topics, such as software engineering, software architecture, programming and databases... read more
I have studied Electrical and Computer Engineering and received Master degree in 2008. While I was studying at university, I worked as a teacher assistant. I have taught many courses to undergraduate and graduate students. In addition, I taught a lot of elementary and high school students as tutor. Both of these experiences convinced me to pursue tutoring as a career. Therefore, I have tried hard to become a good teacher. I realized that teacher preparation is the major determinant of a great teacher. I have taught large variety of courses; however, my best experience is computer programming. Right now, I have some college and high school students whom I am teaching Java, C/C++, Matlab, and object oriented programming. I love teaching the computer programming to any student and can transmit information in the best way at minimum time. If you have any problems in programming and want to become ready for your class or doing your homework, I could help you. You are going to... read more
Being my first WyzAnt post, I figured I'd just ponder on a fallacious belief new programmers generally have. But before that, allow me to introduce myself! My name is Jaffer, I am a student at APSU, a senior with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics. I chose to become a CS major because, well, I love video games and I've always wanted to make them. That is why I really got into C# and XNA, as it makes the life of a game programmer significantly easier. I've used C, C++, Java, C#, Ruby, Fortran, Erlang, F#, VB, HTML, PHP, SQL and who really knows what else, and this is over the course of just 2 years really. So, onto the biggest fallacy a new programmer probably believes: Fallacy: Learning my first language was hard and took a long time (it usually does!). I don't want to learn another language because it will take forever. Truth: Learning a programming language is not about memorizing syntax or semantics, nor is it a test of if you can place each semicolon... read more
Data structures are a way by which data is stored and organized in a system. Linked List, Stacks, Queue, Trees, Hash Tables etc. all come under this category. Best way to learn data structures in any language C, C++, Java etc is to have a pictorial representation of the problem in front of you and then to implement. Syntax of data structure in any language can be easily learned. One need to focus on the meaning of particular data structure and best way to understand this is to have pictorial representations of what exactly needed to be implemented.
Let's keep this simple. I consider what am I going to do with this new computer. For me, it is a combination of hobby computing, business needs, and personal computing. I am seriously considering an Apple this time. The Apple will fit my business needs with both software and the Microsoft offering I can be compatible with the office. The main reason I am considering an Apple is money and security. I am willing to spend the money to get the hardware and software to pursue my hobbies. My hobbies being music, photography, and computing. I like the way media looks and feels on the Apple. And to be honest, I am tired of the pc. The Apple works. Security. Security is the key. With identity theft the expense is justified. While working security in the United States Air Force I realized that security is a key component in computing. Therefore, I will spend the money now. Identity theft is serious. Enough said. Now build the computer. This sounds easy... read more
I have created this blog for my Java students to post their views.
Java is an object oriented programming language. It is an amazing programming language. The more you work on it more you learn it. The best way to understand and learn Java is to understand its basic logic and concepts. One can easily learn the syntax but one has to be very good with logic and concepts. As I always discuss in my class, every single word in Java has a meaning and you have to understand that meaning in order to learn Java or any other programming language. I have very strong computer education background and very good experience with different programming languages. All I can say is that the best way to learn any programming language is to practice it a lot.
Ken B. in Houston, Texas - known as the "Best Little Tutor In Texas" has surpassed another WyzAnt tutoring milestone by going over the 600th tutoring hour for WyzAnt. All subjects in mathematics and science, high school or college, are done by Ken except biology and biochemistry. Ken has now worked with many many students to help them work on their own and be able to do well on homework, basic studies, tests, and special projects. So, if you are in need of someone in Houston and the surrounding areas who can do all levels of mathematics, plus chemistry, physics, computers, and computer programming, Ken is the one to contact.
Ken B in Houston, Texas, better known as "The Best Little Tutor In Texas" has just surpassed the 500th hour of tutoring for WyzAnt. For any subject or combination of subjects dealing with mathematics, chemistry, physics, computers, and computer programming, he is the one-man-source. His diversified expertise and ability to simplify complex subject for students makes him a par-excellent source for student's studies.
My name is Corey and I am currently a college student who studies in Rutgers University majoring in Electrical Engineering. I would like to take advantage of some of my free time to help other people and free them from their struggles with academics. The subjects below are my best so feel free to e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as possible to set up an schedule. Thank you for your support.
Ken B., known as "The Best Little Tutor In Texas", has just surpassed the 400 hour tutoring mark in Houston, Texas! What makes Ken so good and popular in Houston? It is because of his diverse background and of being able to do the following: mathematics, statistics, chemistry, physics, computers, and computer programming. He can help a student in many many different areas. Ken does both high school and college and does regular, honors, IB, PAP, AP, etc... All that is quite a talent. Ken says that the subject most tutored in the past several months is statistics, and the reason for that is that most teachers use the 'dump' method...they 'dump' a copious quantity of power point files onto the student but the teachers do not really teach how to 'do' the problems...he has seen the same trend with other subject areas, and this is most unfortunate for students taking the classes...so, if you need to get on top of your mathematics and science courses (except of biology), then Ken... read more
