About Robert

I've been programming for over 10 years and have 5 years of professional experience. I got my degree at ASU so I'm very familiar with all the CS courses and still have many of the textbooks. I was one of those people who would read the textbook (or the slides/notes posted online) instead of going to class but I know not everyone learns from a book. I've helped friends and family members with their CS courses in the past and helped people with homework/labs.

I think programming is one of the best hobbies to have because it opens up so many opportunities and areas of creativity and unlike most other hobbies it's completely free. All you need is a computer.

Math is the subject beneath the surface of programming and I can help you there too. Math was always my favorite subject in high school (though certain sciences were close behind) and whatever concept you're stuck on I can get you to that a-ha moment of understanding.

I was on the accelerated math track in high school, ending with AP Calculus BC my senior year. I got straight A's in all of them and a 5 on the AP Calc test.

I have a BS in Computer Science (ASU '12) and 10 years of experience programming in C, 7 in C++ and 5 in Python. I have 5 years of professional experience and I currently work as a programmer at the Mars Space Flight Facility on ASU's Tempe campus. Since my hours are flexible I can help people on campus for an hour or 2 during the day even on weekdays.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 11 years.

I have a BS in Computer Science from ASU.

I have written over 100,000 lines of C in my life.

My current job is working on a very large C project.

C++

I've been programming in C++ for almost as long as I have C (plus C is almost a subset of C++ and most of the C I write is Clean C, ie it compiles as C++ too)

Computer Programming

I have BS in Computer Science from ASU. And I have been programming for over 10 years. I have been using Linux (mostly Ubuntu and Ubuntu derivatives) as my primary OS since 2008. And I've also used Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS) at work in every job I've had.

Computer Science

I have BS in Computer Science from ASU. I had a 3.87 major GPA. My current job has me using 3 of the flavors of Linux since I have to package and test the software on the different versions (and Mac too which is Unix not Linux).

Linux

BS in Computer Science from ASU. I have been using Linux (mostly Ubuntu and Ubuntu derivatives) as my primary OS since 2008. And I've also used Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS) at work in every job I've had.

My current job has me using all 3 of the above flavors of Linux since I have to package and test the software on the different versions (and Mac too which is Unix not Linux).

Python

I've been programming in Python for about 5 years. It's my goto scripting language.

I've used it for that purpose at all of my jobs including my current one.
