About Adrian

I have about six years of programming experience, beginning with Java at Imperial Valley College. I transferred to UC Santa Cruz where I studied Computer Science: Game Design. During that time I performed a variety of coursework in C#, C++, C, Javascript, etc. and worked with a number of software development platforms such as the Android Development Environment and the Unity Game Engine. I was also employed by the school as a tech for two and a half years which granted me additional experience with computer repair and troubleshooting.

I do not have any tutoring experience; however, a good portion of my time at UCSC was spent learning new technologies in rapid development cycles (sometimes as short as two weeks) requiring my team and I to split the work of learning a new platform and then reconvening to teach each other. Additionally, my learning style has always been to iterate what I've learned by "teaching" it to myself as if I were a new student, which has giving me a knack for explaining the subtleties of programming. I am also willing to tutor students in high school level math and physics as it pertains to programming, as well as in writing essays and research papers.

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#

Although there were no classes at UCSC focused around C#, it is my go-to language when developing in the Unity Game Engine. I've completed 4 major school projects and am currently working on my own Unity project done entirely in C#. Although most of the programming used the Unity APIs, I've had to make some advanced data types, such as graphs, from scratch. I'm extremely confident in my ability to teach this language especially considering how similar it is to my first language, Java.

JavaScript

One of the core game design classes at UCSC required making a game using JavaScript. I worked with a team using a JS engine called Pulse to design a short action platformer for the browser. Additionally, I did a small amount of programming in JavaScript for school websites as a UCSC tech. It is not one of my preferred languages but I understand its use and am confident in my ability to teach it.
